We stayed at the Byward Blue Inn for 4 wonderful nights in early April for our chosen getaway to our Nation's capital.
This hidden gem was an absolute delight. We booked through hotwire, and the rate was amazing for the perfect location that this Inn is found in. It is literally a 2 minute walk to the Market, with oodles of restaurants, pubs and nightlife to boost. Parliament Hill is a 10 minute walk, the War Museum and Downtown Core is well within walking distance. The Rideau Centre (main shopping centre) is only a 5 minute walk.
The rooms were updated, and while simple were clean and the bed was very comfortable. Our room came equipped with a beautiful patio that would be nice to use in the Summer months. Noise was not an issue, and the staff and stay was a highlight of our trip. The room was plenty big, and daily maid service was provided.
One of the positives of this Inn, is that a hot/cold breakfast comes with your stay each morning. This was a highlight for us. The dining room is beautiful, and there is everything from a milk frother, cereal selection, fresh fruit and yogurt, as well as several hot items to choose from each morning.
The cab ride from the airport cost approx $35.00. Bus service was easy to use in Ottawa, and we took the bus to the Canadian Tire Centre for a Sennators game one evening. The outlet shopping is right next to this centre, and is accessible by bus.
We did not rent a car in Ottawa, and did not feel that we missed out on any attractions due to not having a car. The public transit is easy to use, and everything is accessible by foot from this great location.
Overall great stay, we will return. I'll be spreading the good word.
