Canada’s charming capital city is yours to explore when you book a room in our hotels in Ottawa. Absorb the stately towers and spires of the Parliament buildings or take a leisurely stroll or bike ride along the Rideau Canal.
Most of Ottawa's top sights are clustered downtown, a short trip—by foot or on the city's reliable bus system—from our Ottawa hotels. Start at the Peace Tower in front of Centre Block, where you can tour the House of Commons. From its observation deck, soak up the panoramic views of the Parliament buildings and the Ottawa River as it snakes between the city and neighboring Gatineau, Quebec. Buy a combination ticket to visit two of the city’s top national museums: the Canadian War Museum, designed by a former Japanese-Canadian internee, and the Canadian Museum of Civilization, whose grand entrance hall is lined with imposing totem poles.
For a quick and inexpensive meal near your Ottawa hotel, Ottawa’s street vendors hawk hot dogs, sausages and a local delicacy known as poutine (french fries covered with gravy and cheese curds). At Byward Market, stroll among the food and trinket vendors, and sink your teeth into a ‘Beaver Tail’, a deep-fried, doughy, cinnamon-sugary treat sold outside the market. Head back to your Ottawa hotel to rest up for an evening in the popular Elgin Street district and its many affordable ethnic restaurants.
Stay at our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Ottawa to experience the city's vibrant outdoors in any season. When the weather is warm, you can unwind under a tree on Parliament Hill, or enjoy a picnic lunch in one of Ottawa's more than 800 city and capital parks. Strap on your skates in winter, when the Rideau Canal becomes the Rideau Canal Skateway, the world's largest skating rink.
Located with direct access to Highway 417, the hotel puts guests minutes from the Canadian Tire Centre, the Bayshore Shopping Centre and Ottawa MacDonald-Cartier International Airport. Besides a convenient location in west Ottawa, this hotel's modern accommodations and amenities are sure to exceed your expectations. Enjoy perks like free Wi-Fi access and the free, hot breakfast bar.
The Gatineau-Ottawa regions have so much to offer. Only 5 minutes away, visit Parliament Hill, the Canadian War Museum and the Canadian Museum of History. The Nordik Spa, the largest spa in North America is a must!
Our front desk agents will be happy to assist you in planning these visits!
Since 1953, the Canadian Tulip Festival has been celebrating the legacy of the tulip, Ottawa’s flower, which symbolizes the strong bonds of friendship between Canada and the Netherlands, forged in Canada’s role in the Liberation of the Netherlands during the Second World War. Hotel Indigo Ottawa is located in the heart of the action, and we look forward to welcoming you to our hotel.
