I booked this hotel for a business trip after discovering that all other options were either sold out or cost prohibitive.
The lobby is located on the 4th floor which is a bit unusual but no big deal. The parking garage is horrible... very cramped & hard to manuever, almost hit the walls a few times while going around corners, dark and very low ceilings... don't plan on driving a big SUV down there! The garage elevator was also out of order during our visit which was a minor inconvenience but added to the distaste of the parking situation!
While they didn't have any King rooms available, the one bedroom suite w/ double beds was huge, with a full kitchen, huge living area, desk, flat screen, sofa, table/chairs, a big bathroom & separate bedroom area with another flat screen. I never even touched 2/3rds of the room but it would be perfect for a bigger party or for an extended stay. You can tell that the hotel is older but the room was clean and adequately equipped. The beds were a bit on the hard side but the multiple pillows (four on each of the double beds) made up for it.
Free morning paper outside your room in the AM. Breakfast was busy, free yet fairly average, choices included fruit, yogurt, cereals, eggs, sausage, coffee etc... Centrally located, close to Elgin Street bars/restaurants and about 1.5 kilometers from Byward Market, Parilament etc...
Would I have preferred Fairmont Chateau Laurier (twice the price) or The Westin (sold out), yes... but the Residence Inn ended up being an OK alternative for a short business trip.
