This hotel is located in the heart of the Byward market. I would definitely stay here for the comfort of the room and the location of the hotel to the market area! If you choose to stay here I would recommend the first floor as they have a terrace otherwise you have a smaller balcony on he other floors. They...

New Glasgow, Canada

We've stayed in everything from 5 stars to 1 stars and the rating I give is based on expectations. What we expected here was a simple hotel, breakfast included. The location mattered because while I was at a conference nearby, it was important that my wife had somewhere interesting to wander about. This is a pleasant hotel with courteous staff,...

I booked this place for the great location and lower price, but was pleasantly surprised by how much I got for my dollar. It was very clean, the room seemed new, and it had a small but functional kitchenette. Throughout the building, there are paintings on display and it definitely enhanced the atmosphere and set the hotel apart from others....

We've stayed at the Byward many times and like it for it's quaintness and proximity to the market. Normally this review would be great except that this time they overbooked and when we got there (on a confirmed reservation) we were told that they didn't have a room for us. They booked us at a downtown hotel of similar value...

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We appreciate your feedback on the suite. As for the parking, we do have a small lot under the hotel but unfortunately it is very limited in places and it is subject to availability upon arrival.

We booked here hoping we could walk to Byward Market in the evening and only have to park once. This hotel is a little gem tucked a block away from the market! Great location and customer service, plus the rooms had a lovely garden balcony and mini kitchenette that would be great for a longer stay. They had all the...

This is an older hotel, but has been updated to a boutique style hotel. It is a great location and walking distance to the Byward Market area, as well as numerous attractions and museums. There is parking next door (additional cost) and breakfast is included in the cost of your room. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable and...

This is a gem of a place in the Byward Market area. It is no frills and basic, but clean. Staff are friendly and the breakfast is good - eggs or egg sandwiches, etc. Not just danishes and donuts. The afternoon snack is great - providing just enough of a snack to take you to supper. Wonderful place to stay...
