A last minute visit to see relatives led us to the Byward Blue Inn. We were delighted with our immaculate room, friendly reception and exceptionally good assortment of amenities -- obviously equipped for longer stays. Location near the Byward Market, Houses of Parliament and Art Gallery is ideal. Ample continental breakfast provided is eaten in your room (due to Covid precautions) where you will find "real" crockery for your cereal, fruit, breakfast sandwiches, etc. Parking is limited so be sure to reserve a space when reserving your room and asking directions for arrival might be a good idea with Ottawa's ongoing road works. Highly recommended!
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 wife needed to renew her Philippines passport and we booked here last minute and was not disappointed. In fact, everything was perfect . From Arvind who checked us in and Elena who got me a breakfast sandwich ( bacon and egg) with no cheese plus a great check out experience ( sorry I didn’t get your name), I will highly recommend this place. Our room (35) had a queen bed on 3rd floor with no balcony. We got it from hotels.com for just $77 canadian plus tax plus $15 for overnight parking ($107 total), which included free hot breakfast. I have attached some photos. By the way, if you do want a view and a balcony too, they have rooms on the 6th floor with balcony for an upgrade charge . We explored parliament , rideau canal and the Ottawa River views, and my wife got her passport renewal done. …
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.
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.
