Excellent location and accommodation

Great service, awesome location, very large rooms

We liked the room although it was smaller than usual and the AC was not as cool as we're used to. It was great to have a printer in the room when I needed it. The breakfast was sufficient but we ate in-room since it was too busy with many people eating at the same time. The elevator was a problem since it was always full. Some people without luggage walked down but we waited about 10 minutes since we had luggage. Not sure what was happening since there was no one checking out like us.

Excellent

The cleanliness was topnotch and l like the traditional view in the interior of Business Inn

very noisy during the night from the street and from the inside of the building. inexperienced staffs have to reset the key card twice. TV not working have to reset, wall power sockets not working have to reset.

Close to downtown

Liked the corner view of the street activities and nearby pubs

My “room”, a bachelor suite, was wonderful. Super location. Only thing that could be improved is some healthier choices for breakfast.

The best value in Ottawa. Really convenient location, full kitchen computer printer in every room. Good breakfast.

Very affordable and very, very nice. Amenities are way better than you'd expect.

Very clean place. Nice staff. Location is very good.

All went smoothly and nice. Staff is very nice and knowledgeable. The room exceeded my expectations soo complete!! I would recommend it to anyone

we stayed at the hotel for one night. Great location, good breakfast, excellent customer service. we noticed that it's important for all staff that guests are satisfied with the service as reputation comes first for them. Thanks so much for everything Lora
