Mostly a great place to stay. Would return!
Location, staff, and breakfast were great. Lovely to have a balcony on the courtyard. Mattress was too firm for me. Shampoo and conditioner provided were awful (I was travelling too light to have my own)!

Sweet Stay in The Byward Blue Inn
What a charming stay! We were greeted by a friendly host and checked in right away. We had a lovely main floor room with a patio. The room was clean and had all the ammenities - good coffee for the morning, wine glasses, cutlery, cork screw, robes and slippers. The wifi would great! The breakfast was an excellent perk and was nicely laid out and more than adequate. Excellent location in the Byward Market area. Highly recommend!

A bit hard with the elevator out of service for the weekend. The breakfast was amazing as usual, and staff were very friendly

A weekend in Byward Market
The hotel is a very good value for dollar spent. The rooms are well appointed with everything you need to warm up some leftovers from the various restaurants around. Really liked the location close to Byward market, maybe a little sketchy at night as it is right on the every edge. Morning breakfast is tasty with scrambled eggs, toast, bacon, hash browns etc. All in all a very convenient place to stay and will be booking there again.

Great location, would stay again
Fantastic location, extremely professional staff, very nice breakfast, rooms are large and have most things you might need. It’s an older building so there aren’t any USB ports, so you will want to bring your own special plugs and adapters. That said, for an older building they clearly make an effort to keep it maintained an extremely clean. And it was very quiet. Our only complaint would be that the bed mattress was saggy. Pay parking is in a lot next-door at $14 per day. Would stay again
