Choose our accommodations in Ottawa, Canada’s national capitol, to begin exploring the tapestry of Canadian history, inspiring architecture and the big, beautiful outdoors.
Steps away from our Ottawas hotels, the Canadian Museum of Civilization provides you an introduction to the Great White North: 20,000 years of human history, beginning with the First Peoples' Hall and continuing to Face to Face: The Canadian Personalities Hall. Travel across the Ottawa River to Parliament Hill, home to Canada's House of Commons and the Senate, to witness the ceremony of the Changing of the Guards and view the stunning architecture of the Peace Tower.
Now it's time to appreciate nature's creation! Amazingly, just a short drive from our hotels in Ottawa is an outdoor paradise. The Gatineau Park boasts over 89,000 acres of pristine woods and lakeside beaches. Nearby is Camp Fortune, which offers five ski slopes in the winter and the Aerial Experience in the summer: an obstacle courses of zip lines and suspended bridges.
Back in the city limits, you can take a kayak out on the Rideau Canal (or skate during winter: it’s the world’s largest ice rink!). Then follow your nose the ByWard Market for a sweet beavertail pastry as you shop the local booths.
