This might be an older Inn but don't be fooled. The rooms are clean, the breakfast is excellent and the staff friendly and accommodating. Overall you get amazing value is a very desirable location. Parking is limited, first come first served but it's next door to a public garage so no problem.

Well located hotel. An easy walk to parliament hill, shops, museums and restaurants. The provided breakfast was well supplied with fruit, cereals, baked goods and hot entrees. Good coffee and tea was on all day. Staff was friendly and helpful.

I was moving my daughter from dorm to summer accommodation and stayed at the BBI . Awesome little place on the middle of everything. Breakfast included was great and room was clean and had a great balcony to view from.

This was our tenth stay at the Byward Blue Inn. As always this European-style boutique hotel didn't disappoint. Clean, friendly, well appointed and well thought out. Staff were terrific. Two cost saving bonuses with this hotel...first the free breakfast, and second (if you drive a car) the underground parking lot next door only charges $8 a night.
