Central Downtown Location

Not sure where to stay in Ottawa? There are certainly many options. But most people choose to stay in the centre of the city. This allows better access to the business district of Ottawa, as well as all the tourist attractions that Ottawa has to offer.

But while many downtown Ottawa hotels charge significant rates for their prime location, The Business Inn & Suites is a different kind of hotel. Our rates are lower than most other downtown Ottawa hotels. We are a value-driven hotel that gives you plenty of value for your dollar.

That means that you can have the convenience of being centrally located without feeling the sting in your wallet. Plus, our suites are fully furnished and affordable.


Ottawa, as Canada’s capital, is full of fun tourist activities. Some are available year round, while others, like Winterlude, are only on for a certain season.

Whether it’s a tour of the Parliament Buildings or a trip to the Museum of Nature, we are perfectly located to be your home base for all your tourist expeditions.

That’s the advantage of a downtown Ottawa hotel. We make it easy to get where you’re going. In fact, many of the biggest tourist attractions in Ottawa are nearby to The Business Inn & Suites.
