Good alternative location to the more expensive centre of town...

...if you don't mind a 15-20 minute walk to the Parliament Hill area and a 30 minute walk to the Byward Market. As with most BW hotels, there is no restaurant or bar but Elgin Street, 2 blocks away, has many casual pubs and eateries. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was large, clean and well appointed. The added touch of a microwave and good sized small fridge was interesting. I appreciated that the windows opened which we needed as the room was uncomfortably hot as were the corridors. This was the only way we could get the temp down but then we're subject to the street noise, including the late night revellers going from from Elgin Street. So not the best sleep, even though beds, linens and pillows were very comfy. Also appreciated the larger than normal bathroom towels, and they did not skimp on quantity! Just missed breakfast but it looked like the usual BW continental offering. Underground parking is available but I found as a guest overpriced...$20 plus, plus tax, for an overnight and less than 24 hours. That adds up quickly if you are staying longer. But overall reasonable value for location. less
