Ottawa Hotel Resources

Hotel - Basic Amenities
When you visit a hotel in Ottawa, you want to feel like you haven’t left any luxuries behind. You should always feel like you’ve got everything you need and if you do, the hotel has done their job.

Hotel - Booking directly vs. through a travel agent
When you’ve found the hotel in Ottawa that’s right for you, the next step you have to take is to book your accommodation. Depending on your preference, you may book online, call directly or go through a travel agent. Here are a few tips to help you decide which way is best to book your hotel in Ottawa.

Hotel - Different Services
Your hotel in Ottawa will offer a variety of different services to meet your every need. If you shop around, you’ll be able to find the exact services that you and your family might want.

Hotel - 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:

Hotel - Packages
When it’s time for that special occasion, there are some great packages on offer at hotels in Ottawa. Whether it’s Christmas time, a family vacation or just a romantic weekend away for two, there’s sure to be the perfect package to make your stay in Ottawa memorable.

Hotel - Room Types /Bed Types /Views
When you’re looking for a hotel in Ottawa, it’s important to decide which room type or bed size to best suit your needs. This can be a little confusing so here’s a breakdown of the different types of accommodation and what exactly it is they mean! Don’t forget that there are also specific room designations including smoking/non-smoking, handicapped etc. and you will have to ask your hotel what they have on offer.

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.

Hotel - Star Ratings
The star rating system for Ottawa’s hotel and accommodation is based on the quality of areas such as facilities, amenities and services. Basically, the higher the star rating is, the better the accommodation. There are cases where the hotel can receive ½ stars (e.g. 2 ½ stars) which is perfectly acceptable. (The stars are actually awarded in ½ star increments). It’s really the overall quality of the accommodation and the hotel as well as what extra facilities they have on offer. Each star holds a certain standard and the hotel will not be awarded it if it doesn’t completely comply.

Hotel - Tipping
Tipping is an important part of receiving good quality service. If you’re getting all your questions answered by the concierge, or the bellhop brings your luggage up promptly, why not show them your appreciation? While tipping may not be expected at all hotels, it is considered customary at most. When you’re staying at a hotel in Ottawa, it’s useful to know what sort of standards are expected when tipping certain people.

Hotel - Venues
If you’re looking for an Ottawa hotel to hold an important business meeting, or you need to find somewhere perfect for your wedding day, hotels in Ottawa can offer just that and more.
