This is the best hotel to stay in Ottawa. It's handicapped friendly for people with mobility limitations.

I had meetings to attend at the University of Ottawa, and the Gilmour Inn was not available, so after looking at TripAdvisor (as always!), I chose this hotel. I was staggered to find that I could have a "studio room" for $101 plus tax (mid-week),...More
