Visitors to Ottawa will find the full range of accommodations—from youth hostels, budget lodgings and historic bed-and-breakfasts to deluxe hotels and resorts. Choose a downtown location for easy access to the major attractions. The venerable Fairmont Chateau Laurier perches on the banks of the Rideau Canal downtown. Since 1912, it has been a gathering spot for some of Canada's leading citizens. Another historic property is the Lord Elgin, which dates from the 1940s.
Be aware that conventions and festivals can dominate hotel bookings in the city, so make arrangements well in advance.
