4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The Inn has 2 separate buildings, 203 and 193. I was booked at 193. It's quiet and the common areas are not crowded. Location is walking distance to all the interesting places in Ottawa, the Parliament, Major’s Hill Park or the National Gallery. It's a block away from Byward Market.
