The three of us stayed in a one bedroom apartment that was really well equipped. Not only were there dishes and cooking dishes in the kitchen; there was an air purifier, two TVs and a fan in the bathroom that made hardly any noise, yet prevented the mirror from fogging up. The continental breakfast was good and plentiful. We were not limited to one pat of butter, for example, as we had been in Montreal. And the staff was super helpful. They came to our room twice to resolve a problem with the living room TV.

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as we had to visit a nearby embassy. The room was very clean and had everything you could need. Appreciated the availability of parking and the laundry. We found the bed comfortable and loved the location - close to the embassy and easing walking to the Rideau Center. Scooter rentals right outside the parking as well. Will certainly stay here if we find ourselves in Ottawa again.

I stayed at The Business Inn & Suites for 3 nights. The executive suite to be precise. It was lovely. The staff were super nice, friendly, patient and helpful. The room was clean, well stocked and furnished. There is free breakfast every morning. Outside the hotel, there are a lot of restaurants and pubs to visit. It's a great place to stay if you are stopping in Ottawa for pleasure or business.
