Downtown Ottawa Hotels Guide

A trip to the downtown area of Canada’s capital city means a journey through politics, government buildings, and the massive World Exchange Plaza.

  • Look through over 138 Ottawa hotels downtown
  • Read verified reviews from fellow travellers to select the right hotel for you
  • Save time and money better spent browsing the boutiques at the Plaza

Whether you’re here to see the government in action or are looking to sample the local cuisine, Downtown Ottawa has something for everyone.

Start your day with a trip to Parliament Hill, where the country’s government convenes to enact laws and run the nation. Take a tour of the capital buildings and see Parliament at work, or walk nearby and take some pictures of the flowing Ottawa River, followed by a side trip to Confederation Park. If politics aren’t entirely your cup of tea, head to the World Exchange Plaza, home to a number of stores, and shop until you drop (or until you run out of space in your rental car to stuff your purchases). From there, you can take a boat ride down the scenic Rideau Canal, or walk to the National Arts Centre for a musical performance.

All this walking and exploring is bound to wear you out, so head back to your hotel and put your feet up for a few hours. Sleep on crisp, comfortable sheets, then perk yourself up with free coffee or tea in the lobby. Get some work done in one of the hotel’s smaller meeting rooms, or go to the gym to do some lifting and keep your biceps in perfect working order.

Get your trip started by booking your Ottawa hotel right here on Expedia.ca. We offer the best deals on lodgings, flights, and transportation around the city. Whether you’re looking for a vacation full of adventure or a quiet trip to recharge your batteries, we’ll help you get your entire venture set up.
