Hotel - Short vs. Long Stay

If you’re planning on staying at a hotel in Ottawa, you’ve probably determined the desired length of your stay. There are a few differences in the accommodation so it’s important to look into what would be best for you.

If you’re only planning on staying at an Ottawa hotel for a few days, your best bet is to stick to the regular hotel rates. They usually offer standard services and amenities like coffee makers, mini-fridges in the room, a restaurant and bar may also be available to get you by.

If however, you’re planning on staying longer than that, you may want to consider looking into Ottawa hotels that specialise in guests staying that little bit longer. There are mainly two choices which are the extended-stay hotels and the suite extended-stay hotels (and yes, there is a slight difference). Basically, in the suite extended-stay hotels, there’s more room and they should offer a kitchenette, a separate seating area with a sofa (or sofa bed if requested) and at least one other bedroom.

The extended-stay hotels usually just offer one room with a bed, a refrigerator, counter space and a chair or two in a slightly secluded area of the room.

The rates should come down in price when you’re staying with your Ottawa hotel for a longer period of time (as are most things when you “buy in bulk”). Check with your Ottawa hotel to see if they offer any special discounts for staying a bit longer. For instance, if you stay for a week instead of five days, you might get a better price for your accommodation overall.
