The room we got was like an open concept studio apartment with a cooking area, sitting area and sleeping area in one huge space. Very clean. Friendly and helpful staff. A bonus is the parking (you pay extra but parking in downtown Ottawa can be a pain). You can choose outdoor parking in their lot, or underground parking ( a... More

I got a great deal at the Business Inn and Suites. $100 US / night for a huge 'suite' which was really a large 1 bedroom apartment. It had a full kitchen, 2 dining areas, living room area, separate bedroom with large ( king? ) size bed. Oh, and there was a balcony with great views of the city. So... More

I have just spent 2 nights here. The "room" was a self- contained studio flat with cooking facilities as well as everything that you would normally expect in a hotel room. Everything was very clean, and staff mostly friendly. Only minus points were: breakfast, whilst abundant, lacks savoury options (you can get ready -made egg and bacon muffins, but nothing... More

We enjoyed our stay at this apartment-hotel, conveniently situated in Ottawa. We rented a studio for 2 nights and it was more like an apartment. It included a large room including the bedroom and living room all together, a balcony, a separate complete kitchen. There was a computer and printer in the living room. The furniture was nice and clean.... More

This hotel has a great location, large, well equipped rooms, a more than ample breakfast and roomy parking area. Within walking distance of ottawa attractions, this hotel is a find for the price. There are plenty of eateries around as well. The staff are not your typical hotel staff people, which is s little strange but this place is recommendable

We very much enjoyed our stay. The room was very nice, comfortable and spacious. Very clean and all amenities needed. Very much appreciated free laundry room and detergent. Location was suitable and convenient, near lots of shops. Perhaps a little loud with the bars downstairs but not really a problem. Plenty of food available at breakfast. My only suggestions for...

We arrived a little early (1:30) for checkin time (3: p.m.) but Dahlia at the front desk was kind enough to give us our parking pass so we parked the car and went out for lunch. She even told us we could give her our credit card details when we checked in. We returned at 3: but unfortunately the room... More

Stayed here with the family for Winterlude. Close to the Rideau. Parking has In and Out privileges but needed to park outside as the underground parking was too small for our Caravan Minivan. Rooms were clean but we had a water leak on the floor around the Heating/Cooling unit. Would stay here again for the location. The Hotel feels more... More

Very unique hotel! I travel to Ottawa for weeks at a time for work and I always try to stay here if possible. Large condo style rooms with full kitchens and all kinds of little extras. Free laundry on site. Also has a decent bar/restaurant on the ground floor and the neighbourhood is great.
