I have stayed in "The Business Inn and Suites" several times when I have traveled solo for business. This time I took my wife and children with me too. We had one of the family suites, with 180* view of the city. Each and every member of my family loved the spacious, and clean rooms. My wife was particularly impressed...

Great location , walking distance to Parliament, ByWay market and National,Gallery. Lively nightlife and great choice of restaurants and pubs. Free Hot breakfast is quite impressive as is the free take-away goodie bag with a bottle,of water.

You won't do better than the Business for value, cleanliness, and service. Our room was huge with a sitting area and dining room table. A small kitchenette made fixing snacks a breeze. The bed was like sleeping on a pillow. Plenty of plugs and a desktop computer with printer was in each room. The staff downstairs was kind and helpful....

The hotel caters to travelers. There is even a to go bag for breakfast. We could walk to many of Ottowa's attractions! There were many restaurants in the area. The desk clerks were very helpful when arranging transportation to the airport.

Let me start out by saying if not for the parking, this would be a slam dunk. Still, the Business Inn is a great choice for a variety of reasons. Firstly the place was very clean and spacious for our family of five. My youngest had enough room to roam, play with his toys etc. The computer in the room...

The hotel is in an awesome location - walk to canal, walk to parliament, walk to all the pubs nearby....across the street, etc. The breakfast rocks - egg/meat/cheese on English muffins, cereal, hash browns, fruit, muffins, yogurt, etc...and lots of it. You even get free laundry (a bonus in a hot and humid climate). Staff were lovely too. Room was...

The rate of it was very good and we were attending a concert (Chamberfest) very close to the hotel. However, even if we booked a suite - instead of a cheaper studio - we did not get the expected King bed. The bucket of dirty towels were right in front of our room. And the bed was a disaster... in...

We reviewed this hotel several years ago and my family recently stayed here again (as they have been doing whenever they are in Ottawa). It remains one of the best places to stay if you want to be in a central location with shops right around the corner. The breakfast is good, the rooms are clean , you have the...

Most bang for the buck that we've had in quite a while. Sure the decor and design are a bit dated, but so am I.
