Boutique hotels

There’s plenty to see and do in Ottawa, and the biggest decision you’ll have to make is how to discover it all. Fortunately, the inner-city is easily walkable, so you can start at the impressive Parliament Hall and take the time to explore the many museums and historical homes including Rideau Hall.

For a dose of yesteryear, you can choose one of the artsy boutique hotels that have a little history behind them. Hotel Indigo Ottawa resides in a century-old red brick building, and the sought-after address of the Swiss Hotel has been home to three prime ministers.

Shop til’ you drop

Ottawa is a shopaholics dream with some of the finest shopping districts nestled within the heart of downtown. With a backdrop of Parliament Hill, you can pick up some souvenirs along Sparks Street, before getting lost among the flower stalls, fishmongers and maple syrup providores at the famed Byward Market.

Make downtown your base if you want some serious retail therapy – you can easily drop off your purchases back at the hotel and be ready for round two! The convergence of the three rivers frame the area and you’ll find a full range of hotel options to suit your budget, from the Courtyard Marriot to the ritzy Westin.

'Haunted' Ottawa

It’s no surprise that Canada’s distinguished capital has a place in the heart of many who are fascinated by paranormal legends and tales. Ottawa’s intriguing history has shaped the city’s supernatural spectrum and there are a handful of walking tours that visit some of the most infamous locations in town.

For those who want to fully experience the thrills, you can spend the night in one of Ottawa’s ‘haunted’ hotels. More than just a backpacker hostel, the HI-Ottawa Jail is located in the Carleton County Gaol, where you can get some shut-eye in one of the old cells. On the other end of the scale, you can check in to one of the gorgeous rooms at the landmark Fairmont Chateau Laurier, if not for the legends, but to experience the style, sophistication and grandeur of a bygone era.
