My family and I went to Ottawa for the 17 Tulip Festival. The hotel we normally stay at was full so we booked the Business Inn and Suites. We were not disappointed, there was even a continental breakfast included. The breakfast had the usual items you would expect as well as hot, made on the spot, breakfast sandwiches similar to...

We really enjoyed our one night stay. The hotel itself and the staff exuded charm. It was unique in that there was a complete small kitchen, couch and chair, desk, computer, printer and fax. This would be perfect for someone travelling for business, but was also great for a night on the town as it is close to many downtown...

Visited Ottawa for 9 days in May 2017 and stayed @ The Business Inn. After booking a king room with balcony we were given a unit with a queen bed. I called the front desk and we were immediately upgraded to an executive suite at no extra charge. The suite was large and comfortable, but the bed was a little...

We booked this hotel based on it's great location and on all the great reviews. We were not disappointed! Our suite was so roomy, and having a full kitchen was really handy. The bed was super comfy, and even though there was a Senators playoff game going on and all the bars in the area were packed, we noticed no...

Our room had a kitchen with table and three chairs, living room with large dining table and couch and easy chair. Nice king bed that was comfortable, and when you are 70 you appreciate a comfortable bed. Good location with some fine restaurant easily in walking distance. Served a fine breakfast, fresh fruit, cereal, muffins, egg sandwich with either ham,...

This apartment hotel is a 1960s or 1970s former apartment building which has been modified to be a hotel. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite. The living room/dining area was generously sized. The bedroom was small and could only accommodate a queen size bed. The bathroom was updated and a reasonable size. The kitchen could be closed off with...
