Hotels in Ottawa provide access to a city sarcastically nicknamed “The City That Fun Forgot”. Don’t let that nickname mislead you, however. From its museums to its historical sites to its festivals to its beautiful natural surroundings, Ottawa is a place where fun surely can be had. If you’re into downhill or cross-country skiing, then places such as Mont-Tremblant or Nakkertok are right up your alley. The hotels in Ottawa found below offer incredible accommodations in Canada’s capital city. Before we get you to hotels in Ottawa, let’s take a look at some background information on the city to help you along the way.
Ottawa, Canada’s capital city, stands at the Ottawa River’s south bank. With a population of over 1 million people, Ottawa is Canada’s fourth largest city. Incorporated in 1855, this city’s name derives from an Algonquin word meaning “to trade”. Likely the first European to travel up the Ottawa River, Étienne Brûlé passed through the area circa 1610 en route to the Great Lakes. Philemon Wright, from New England, created the first European settlement on March 7, 1800. Originally named Bytown, Ottawa was founded as a community in 1826 due to land speculators’ attraction to the new Rideau Canal being built by the British. During the 1800s, the area experienced two wars by way of the War of 1812 and Shiners’ War of 1835. Queen Victoria in 1857 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. Post-1850, lumber baron entrepreneurs built some of the world’s largest sawmills here, and by 1885, Ottawa was Canada’s only city to have street lights powered entirely by electricity. In 1900, the Hull-Ottawa fire destroyed about one-fifth of the city.
Ottawa has since become Canada’s political epicenter. Home to four seasons, this capital city’s summer temperatures peak in July, while winter temperatures are lowest in January. 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 Canadian Tire Centre. Popular foods include Poutine, which is french fries and cheese curds covered in gravy, lobster rolls, bagels, smoked meats, Bannock, or a type of flat-bread, butter tarts, bacon, fried dough, French toast and more, while whisky, lager beer, wine and various cocktails can be had in many of the fine establishments found below. Now that we’ve covered a little background information on the city, it’s time for hotels in Ottawa that are anything but dull.
