Hotels in Ottawa

Hotels in Ottawa offer cozy accommodations in a destination sarcastically nicknamed “The City That Fun Forgot”. Known for its museums, historical sites, festivals, natural surroundings and high-quality establishments, Ottawa is located in southeastern Ontario, about a 2-hour drive west of Montreal, and 3.5 hours northwest of Burlington, Vermont. Canada’s capital, Ottawa also marks a mid-point between Quebec City to the far northeast, and Toronto to the far southwest. Flowing through the city, the Ottawa River separates the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec. Not far from Ottawa you may find great skiing at places such as Mont-Tremblant Resort in Mont-Tremblant, as well as Nakkertok South and Camp Fortune, which are both not far northward in Quebec. Other nearby Quebec attractions include Gatineau Park, Discovery Trail (hiking trail), Lusk Cave (hiking area), Lac Philippe – Parc de la Gatineau (beach), Mont Cascades (water park), Eco-Odyssee (tourist attraction), Cafe Le Hibou (restaurant) and Caverne Laflèche par Arbraska (amusement park). Likely you’ve heard of the Ottawa Senators, who play at Canadian Tire Centre on the city’s southwest side. When visiting Ottawa, you might want to rent a car, as attractions tend to be more spread out. English is widely spoken, although it might be beneficial to learn a few French phrases, and politeness is advisable. Cars travel on the right-hand side, currency is the Canadian Dollar and the drinking age is 19 years old. Home to many festivals, Ottawa’s top events include Canadian Tulip Festival, Ottawa Fringe Festival, Summer Solstice Indigenous Festival, Escapade Music Festival, Ottawa Bluesfest, Music and Beyond, Oh Canada, Eh!?, Ottawa Busker Festival, Ottawa Chamberfest, Tim Hortons Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival, Almonte Celtfest, CityFolk Festival, Halal Ribfest Ottawa, Ottawa International Children’s Festival and Latin American Film Festival. Hotels in Ottawa are some of the best in eastern Canada. Before we get to hotels in Ottawa, let’s take a look at some more background information on the area to help you along the way.

Incorporated relatively recently in 1855, Ottawa’s name derives from an Algonquin word meaning “to trade”. The first European to travel up the Ottawa River was Étienne Brûlé, who passed through the area circa 1610 en route to the Great Lakes. The word “rideau” means “curtain” in French. Samuel de Champlain is credited with the naming of Rideau Falls, as he felt that the waterfall resembled a curtain. New Englander Philemon Wright created the area’s first European settlement circa March 7, 1800. Originally named “Bytown”, Ottawa was founded as a community in 1826, when land speculators drew interest in the Rideau Canal that was being built by the British. Early in the 1800s, the area experienced two wars by way of the War of 1812 and Shiners’ War of 1835. Post-1850, lumber baron entrepreneurs built some of the world’s largest sawmills in the area. In 1857, Queen Victoria chose Ottawa as Canada’s capital city due to its regional isolation, as well as its proximity to Toronto, Kingston and Montreal on the Rideau Waterway. Ottawa was Canada’s only city to have street lights powered entirely by electricity by 1885. In 1900, the Hull-Ottawa fire destroyed about one-fifth of the city.

Canada’s capital, Ottawa is home to over 1 million “Ottawans”. A governmental city, Ottawa ranks as Canada’s fourth largest. Naturally, Canada’s capital city experiences four seasons, with peak temperatures occurring in July, and often frigid temperatures happening in January. Of course, if you are visiting especially for a Senators game, you’ll want to pack warm clothing. The city is home to many foreign embassies and key buildings, including Canada’s Parliament, Supreme Court, viceroy residence and Office of the Prime Minister. Major points of interest include Centre Block on Parliament Hill, National War Memorial, Downtown Ottawa, National Gallery of Canada, Rideau Canal, Château Laurier, Peace Tower, Library of Parliament, ByWard Market, TD Place Stadium and the aforementioned Canadian Tire Centre. Popular foods include Poutine (French fries and cheese curds covered in gravy), lobster rolls, bagels, smoked meats, Bannock (a type of flat-bread), butter tarts, bacon, fried dough and French toast. Drinks typically involve whisky, lager beer, wine or various cocktails. Now that we have a little background information on the area, it’s time for hotels in Ottawa that will help make for a comfortable trip.

  1. Hello. Thanks for sharing with us such an awesome places in Ottawa, Canada. 

    This year I set out to go to Canada but I didn’t know in which city. Now I have decided and Ottawa is all I want. The place that caught my attention is 900 Great Lakes Avenue. Since I have an online business, this place is perfect for working from home. I want to stay here for a few months with my family. I can’t believe the price per night is only $ 234. I’m still thinking if I’m going to extend my stay here. Thanks again for this great opportunity and help. Wish you all the best and a happy new year.


    1. Nagy 900 Great Lakes Avenue is a great choice for you and your family. Thank you for stopping by and happy new year too!

  2. Hey, Your guide on Hotels in Ottawa is very useful for everyone. Ottawa is Canada capital city. Ottawa has four seasons with high summer temperatures peaking in July and low winter temperatures falling in January. I enjoy while reading and watching your guide. If I get a chance to visit Ottawa. We will stay in Albert at Bay Suite Hotel  or JstLikeHome – Luxury Mansion. You are doing a grate work by helping tourist in Ottawa.

  3. Ah yes, Ottawa, what a wonderful city to stay at! I’ve lived in Canada my whole life and I can say with confidence that Ottawa is one of the nicest cities to visit. It might seem like there’s less going on than other big ones (Toronto, Edmonton), but it’s a nicer city overall and provides many nice places to stay. It’s a capital city that is worthy of praise 🙂 

  4. Hello there, I have read through some hotels in different countries and states here in this blog and as someone who loves traveling and exploring, I must say you are making the whole process in regards to accommodation easy for us. These hotels in Ottawa are really nice and outstanding and are embedded with every features I always crave for in an hotel room. You know, I am a blogger and I don’t joke with free WiFi, stable power supply, comfortable environment and some really nice meals. These are all available in most of these hotels you have recommended and are very much affordable especially for group accommodation.


  5. I’d love to come down to the Canadian War Museum. The near suggested hotel has a price that is king of my travel budget xD. The Ottawa National Museum is also a must. I’ll need to come there alone as my wife hates museums or the like.

    Canada is well know for it’s security and well designed and better implemented transportation and assistance services. That’s the kind of places you could happily go even blindfolded (only open an eyebrow check the calendar and avoid cool weather).

    Thank you for a great post!

  6. These hotels are just amazing. When visiting Ottawa, Canada, one needs to consider these hotels listed above. They have a lot of nice features in their own unique. Among all, the one I find most interesting is SOHO Residences Lisgar. One thing I like about it is the outdoor pool and the city views with its location and some other amazing features.

    Great article.

  7. Oh my gosh I have not been to Ottawa yet and I would love to go. You have given me alot to look at and think about

    It is such a beautiful place , I had no Idea. I have always wanted to go to Canada. I  would love to travel to a lot of 

    places. I think these are some really awesome places to stay . Great job at this list. I love your website too.

  8. I have been to Ottawa once, it’s a magnificent place and yet again very peaceful. I was looking for a really cheap motel but it’s really difficult to find in that city. Now I know better, when I go there again in the future I know where to look and where to go. This article is really interesting because I never thought of these places, even though they are a bit on the high side it is very okay for me. So If I can pay less than $200 per night in a hotel in Canada’s capital city then it is fair and I would not complain. 

  9. Many thanks to you for sharing such an excellent article with us .I went to Canada in January this year for my official work.And I was in Ottawa, the Canadian capital.The hotels there are very nice and nice.And there I was in a hotel called Herb Leger.The hotel is very nice to look at and very suitable for staying.And the hotel was completely air-conditioned.And there are country restaurants inside the hotel. The food is very good and healthy.After reading your Article, everyone will know about the best hotels in Canada, and those who travel to Canada must review the hotels and share new experiences with you.

  10. One of my goals this year is to go to Ottawa! I’ve never been to see out parliament buildings or Algonquin park. I’d love to see one of our provincial parks. You’ve given me a lot of great options to think about. I think I’ll likely go with the Fairmont Chateau Laurier Gold Experience though. I’ve stayed at the Fairmont in Toronto before and I loved it! It also just sounds like it’s in a really good location with lots to see and do. 

    1. Sam hopefully you get to go to Ottawa very soon and see parliament buildings and Algonquin Park. Great choice in Fairmont Chateau Laurier Gold Experience, and thank you for sharing your experience with Fairmont 🙂

  11. I really appreciate this article. Thank you so much for sharing this great post with us. As I plan to travel to Canada this summer, I think your post will benefit me. Of all these hotels, I like the Le Germain Hotel, the amenities of this hotel are very good, there is a buffet buffet for Khabar. And very close to the Le Germain Hotel, including the Embassy of Denmark and the University of Carleton, which I can easily see. I hope I enjoy my trip to Canada.
    I will share this article on social media, I hope other will people benefit.

  12. These places look absolutely gorgeous.  I want to try them all!!!  The Ottawa hotel looks like it is on an island.  It is huge! Radaeu – Stunning. I have always wanted to live in a castle and these two resemble that from the outside.  I worked in a place called Belhurst Castle and Castles sure have so many places to explore! Also, I love to be by the water.  If I am on vacation – I need to be around water.  It’s just not the same without it. Does everyone see how beautiful that Ottawa Train Station Stairway is.  Exquisite.  Thank You for posting all of this.
