This hotel is a gem. The option of sitting out on your own balcony is wonderful if you have had a long travel day (road tripping). The location could not be more ideal within sight of Byward Markets restaurants/bars.

We loved being able to walk to most everyrhing of interest, to be able to prepare simple meals and enjoy them on the little balcony, and to sleep well. We loved having dishes, utensils, napkins, washing supplies, a counter space to work, plenty of chairs and table space, hooks for wet towels, blackout shades, plenty of lighting, AND parking next door. We very much appreciated the hot breakfast at the start of the day and the elevator at the end, and every cheerful and helpful staff person. We would definately recommend Byward Blue Inn, and would stay there again.
