We stayed at the Byward Blue Inn during our Winterlude get away. The location was great. Lots of restaurants and convenient shopping in the neighbourhood. We were able to walk to many attractions. The price was right compared to other hotels in the neighbourhood. We found the room to be clean and well appointed. It was on the small size...

Friendly service, breakfast good, they also have an afternoon tea. Location excellent to downtown. Room had a balcony but also had about 2 feet of snow! Short distance to the Byward market. Easy walking distance to Parliment Hill, and the war museum.

We were in Ottawa in February 2017, and stayed at the ByWard Blue Inn. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Byward Blue. The best part about the ByWard Blue is the hotel staff. The people at the front desk were friendly and helpful. Our room was neat and well cleaned every day. And the folks who prepare the continental...

Great location, clean room (albeit a bit small), service was great. Very European feel to it. The breakfast was okay - by no means gourmet - but really good selection of typical breakfast stuff. Good value for dollar.

Well located hotel, with comfortable common areas and rooms. We stayed for 8 nights and found the Staff all very welcoming, helpful and friendly. Good breakfast. Rooms well equipped with fridge, microwave, coffee maker etc and well sound proofed. If we return to Ottawa we would return, and fully recommend this hotel to other guests.

Stayed for a few days on a getaway with my partner and truly enjoyed ourselves here. The breakfast was incredible and the kitchenette allowed for us to prepare the rest of our meals. As a previous resident of Ottawa I can attest to the location as being key due to it being in the market. Affordable city parking is close...

This place was PERFECT. Let me start off by saying that I visit Ottawa often and have had the privilege of staying in many hotels downtown. If you're looking for luxury, then go ahead and book somewhere else. However, if you're looking for everything else but luxury, then you can't get any better than the ByWard Blue Inn. The location...

This facility provided me with everything I needed during my stay. Although room was not so big, bed was comfortable and room was not noisy. The inn provided amenities such as umbrellas to the guests to get out and about in spite of the rain. Front desk was always polite and efficient when approached. Recommend.
