My husband and I spent a weekend in Ottawa and stayed at the Swiss Hotel. It was clean, reasonably priced and conveniently located being only a 5-10 minute walk away from Byward Market, the Rideau Centre and National Gallery. It's also ten minutes (and about $15) in a taxi from the train station.
I had made a mistake with our reservation dates but the change was easily accommodated for. It was a shame though that when we arrived the heating in our room had not been turned on! The weekend was especially cold and so it took a while to warm up. We forgot to make reservations for breakfast (did not read the website properly!) but Cora's is very close by. We had breakfast the following morning at the hotel which was ok - there was plenty of choice and cost $15 each.
This is a good choice if you are looking for a convenient and clean room as a base for a weekend away.
