180 Maclaren Street, Ottawa
The very popular Business Inn is my pick for best value in Ottawa. It has amazingly low prices for what it offers, and it’s centrally located with good transit access. Guests enjoy its clean and spacious suites with fully-equipped kitchens, featuring 46” LCD TVs with free movie channels, DVD players, and pillow-top mattresses. Some suites come with balconies. Business travellers can utilize a host of business-related amenities in each suite which exceeds the standards for modern hotels. Each suite includes a work station with a computer, monitor and laser printer and the hotel provides IT support during regular business hours, as well as free photocopy and fax services. Clothes steamers are an added plus, and guests will appreciate free laundry facilities on site, along with free detergent. Other free amenities include Wi-Fi, a generous and varied breakfast and local calls. Parking is an extra $11 for outdoors and $13 for underground. There’s a 24-hr fitness centre making it easy to get in some needed workouts and the on-site restaurant, Maclaren's on Elgin, serves lunch and dinner. The hotel is a 5-minute drive or 15-minute walk to Byward Market and the Rideau Centre.
