How To Choose The Right One For Your Stay

An important factor to consider when booking your hotel in Ottawa is what you’d like to see and where you need to be! If you’re only staying for a night or two and you need to get to the airport, sometimes it’s best to book your accommodation closer to the airport itself. If on the other hand, you’re leisurely making your way to Ottawa and your plans are to relax and enjoy, then you should look for a hotel closer to any sites you’d like to see (another idea is to look for a good place to hop on the public transport). Some of the main places to consider are:

You should always try to be somewhat near to the airport if you’re getting on a flight as you don’t want to be too far away and risk getting stuck in traffic. Another great service hotels near the Ottawa airport may offer are the free shuttles that are provided throughout the day. This can be a trip saver when you’re running late or potentially getting lost! These shuttle services come directly to your hotel door and take you straight to the terminal you need.

Public Transport
If you’re looking to do a lot of sightseeing, then you may want to book a hotel that has a great location in terms of public transport. This way, you can stay in a hotel that’s perfect for you and perfect for the area you want to be in, as well as the bonus of being close to transportation to get you where you need to go. The concierge at your hotel should be able to direct you to the nearest locations which will make your sightseeing trip around Ottawa much more enjoyable and accessible.

Concerts / Shows
There’s a few venues around Ottawa which specialise on being very close to one or more of these locations. A lot of the hotels in Ottawa will offer a late check-in service if you have to go straight to the concert and aren’t able to check-in straight away. When you’re booking your tickets for the concert, you could ask them if they’re aware of any hotels that are close by or that they would recommend. Some of the hotels in Ottawa that are near to the venues have bars that stay open late. This can be a great way to meet with like-minded people and discuss the show you just saw!

If there’s a particular restaurant you’re after or a specific area you’d like to be in (Little Italy, Greek Town etc.) then you should investigate before you book your hotel in Ottawa. Sometimes you can find a hotel that is beautifully furnished with authentic designs that will make you feel like you’ve stepped into another part of the world! This can be a great , romantic way to really get the feel you’re after while all at the same time, experiencing the delights that Ottawa has to offer.

There are quite a few museums to choose from but if there was a particular one you wanted to visit, it may be a good idea to try and book your accommodation close by to avoid any unwanted cab fees etc. If you think you’d prefer to do a tour of all the different museums, then maybe you should try to get your hotel nearer to the public transport. Some of the hotels near the museums offer amazing views of the landmarks and can be a beautiful bonus to your hotel in Ottawa.

People you’re meeting

If you are planning on meeting up with friends, family or business associates, you should look into where abouts they’re staying. You wouldn’t want to be at the complete opposite end to where all the action’s going to be! So do make sure to converse with whomever you’re going to visit in order to get the most out of your time in Ottawa.
