Vanessa wrote a review 5 Apr
Toronto, Canada5 contributions
My partner and I loved our stay at the hotel. We opted for a queen room, and it was clean and well lit. The room didn’t have a view per se but it was nice to have a balcony. I particularly liked the small kitchenette as it’s never convenient to use the bathroom sink for washing cutlery and coffee mugs. The breakfast was nice and filling, with egg sandwiches, cereal and croissants on the menu. They also accommodated our request for early check-in as we were travelling on a weekday before long-weekend and needed a place to set up our laptops during the day. Social distancing was practiced very well and the hotel had all safety precautions in place without compromising on a pleasant stay experience.

Hotel's Favourite
Absolutely no complaints about the hotel or service! The guy at front desk and Florence went above and beyond any of our requests. The breakfast was better than any other hotels I have styaed, good variety and the servers were pleasant and efficient. Will certainly stay here again and recommend to friends and family.

My Queen room with balcony had a microwave, electric kettle, coffee maker, refrigerator, microwave, eating utensils and plates. The room was a good size. Location is excellent - you can see the Peace Tower and top of the Parliamentary Library from the front of the hotel - about a 15 min. brisk walk. All manner of restaurants and eateries within easy walking distance. Hotel has underground parking (fee) for about 10 vehicles, so reserve in advance. Alternatively, there are two parking garages within a 90 second walk of the front entrance of hotel. Staff was very welcoming. Facility was very clean. Only down sides - room needed better lighting for reading, a comfortable/easy chair would have been welcome, and I found the mattress much firmer than I prefer.

Starting with the good point, that would be the location. I was surprised with the overall rating, still having a hard time understanding how. Trip advisor ratings are usually quite reliable, not in this case. You will find pay parking next door as the lot will be full. You will be underwhelmed by the 1980’s decor, and cold reception at the front desk. (As noted in other traveller reviews, this was accurate) the apartment building style place is clean but old. The room is strictly a no frills experience. Dorm room type furniture, hard, basic bed. Springy cheap pillows. There is also no daily room cleaning if you stay for more than one night, which we were scheduled to be. However we checked out, forfeiting our next two days, and checked into Le Suites up the road.

Dear E7027QYbobm, We are disappointed to read that the hotel did not meet your expectations in-spite of our best efforts to do so. Hotel has limited parking spaces but as pointed out, there is a city parking beside the hotel for the same rate. As per hotel decor, other guests seem to have a positive view of the art work. Having said this, we understand that we all have different tastes and as such we appreciate your honest feedback. Pillows are the same as in most hotels but we are happy to consider other kinds as well (though, we are not sure if you found them too soft or too hard). As per room service, we are in the middle of Pandemics and for health reasons, cleaning staff is instructed not to enter in occupied rooms. Understandably, these measures are taken in accordance with the public health to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Cleaning products and hygiene products are provided daily upon request. Apart from the noted observations, we hope you had a good visit in Ottawa. Thank you for staying with us. Sincerely, ByWard Blue Inn

The Blue Inn is located in the heart of the trendy and vibrant Byward Market. We chose to stay there for a brief visit to Ottawa and did not regret it. Indoor public parking is just meters away; the room was bright, clean, and had all the modern amenities. The stay included breakfast which turned out to be very good (including the hot bagel with eggs and bacon). The staff was friendly and helpful and followed strict Covid protocols. And last but not least, the stay was quite inexpensive. We would gladly return in a future visit to Ottawa
