I liked the location, small number of rooms and the breakfast in the morning.
The tight parking and slow elevator.
The hotel was very clean and located where all the activities are. It was close to the market and governmental tourist sights. The balcony was pleasant
The room was a little small and sparse - utilitarian.
The pleasant relaxed atmosphere throughout the inn, pretty good breakfast, very pleasant afternoon tea.
The bathroom could have used some better planning; but what is really missed is a rubber mat for the bathtub, which is very slippery on the bottom; could be dangerous.
Make sure to get a room with a balcony facing Clearance Street. You can enjoy a view of Parliament hill and the U.S. Embassy right down the street.
Staff, Location, Price, Clean Room, Breakfast.
Not posh, but more than comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful. The location is very handy to ByWard Market. Breakfast included some hot items, as well as the typical 'continental breakfast'. Comfortable common lounge off the breakfast room. Not for the folks who prefer luxury hotels. We would go back. Great value for money.
We would ask for a room facing the courtyard rather than the street. Being so near the entertainment district, it can be noisy on the street side.
bathroom clean, bed comfortable, breakfast offers a variety of food, change of towel and sheets every day, like to have the shampoo,conditioner and body lotion as complimentary staff very polite
bathtub very slippery and dangerous for a mature person. suggestion:coat the tub with antislippery matter. I would have like to have hand towels
Convenient for walking to shops and sites. Good breakfast, and afternoon tea. Clean linens.
Minimal Parking. Thank goodness we reserved, but that doesn't mean you can park at the Inn. Halls and Lobby could use an update. Could use a couple of comfy chairs.
Excellent staff & good choice of music in the foyer.
Poor ventilation in room
Location Clean Breakfast adequate - staff in morning very nice
Beds were very uncomfortable Very basic No amenities parking - very tight and no in and out priviledges
Good location, good breakfast
The Staff was excellent. I asked for a late checkout and they dropped the fee for it. They always promptly called a Taxi when I needed one and gave me directions to the places I needed to visit. Some that I thought were further away were within nearby walking distance. The location of the hotel is great. All the Ottawa sights; Byward Market, Chateaux Laurier, restaurant row, etc are nearby.
The toilet was small, didn't seem like a standard size toilet. The floors are laminate and not carpeted.
Excellent location to Byward Market.
Given key to room that was already occupied! Couple in there were very surprised when I opened the door to their room. Front desk staff told me not to worry because "They complain about everything". Parking is tight and limited, and they made us leave the parking lot at check-out, even though we wanted to walk around for a few hours. Worst thing was the noise during the night. We had a street side room, but the air conditioner unit basically made it like an open window to outside, and the street noises were loud and clear. Very hard to sleep. Breakfast was included, but very basic. Cereal, toast, hard boiled eggs, processed cheese slices, cantaloupe.
Location was very important to us. Very clean and form follows function in all areas. Fittings like taps and door handles worked as expected.
Eugene was very hospitable and a consummate professional. My uncle and his companion will be happy to recommend the Inn
One staff member clearly was not very heplful at all expecially when my uncle asked him to help out with booking on the computer. My uncle is certified blind and elderly and neither he nor his companion are computer savy. This man in my opinion should receive customer service training or get out of the business - I would be happy to take over his job.
Apart from the very comfortable room, delicious breakfast and helpful staff - all the little extras - elevator, balcony, afternoon tea, sauna and underground parking etc helped make our stay a very memorable one.
Well informed, friendly staff.
No plugs in the sink.
Location close to everything Hot breakfast was excellent
Great location, great continental breakfast
Pillows were hard but found an extra softer pillow as we were leaving.
Excellent location, close to everything complementary breakfast and snacks in the afternoon, complementary filtered water in fridge each day, nice mattress, clean room. Balcony with nice view.
Old, tired bathroom with mold build up between tiles in shower, poor water pressure in shower, poor ventilation. Problems with power outlets not working properly. Pillows too flat and poor quality. Noisy due to no carpets on floor and no material in room to absorb sounds. White curtains on windows let in too much light. Problems with internet outage/tv
Location is perfect. And the clean room and bed is a plus.
Parking space is so tiny, plus when we came back at 2am there was no parking space for us, for which we paid. Also, so many people for a breakfast and not enough tables for everybody. We had to come back later, but then the food assortments were so limited.
The Staff were topnotch extremely helpful and the best I have encountered in a long while. The coffee was the way I like it, and breakfast included, what more can you ask for! Nice and Quiet
WiFi was extremely slow and I had to call the front to get them to reboot. They should have this monitored. The Tub was a bit on the ancient side. There was no facial tissue in the room.
location is great
The Inn provided a "home-like" atmosphere with the most accomodating staff ever. It was quiet,cosy and comfortable. Will definitely book it again and highly recommend it.
