  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.


  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.
