Editor's "Best Value" Picks Jul 10, 2014 | Musetta R.
Why these hotels? If you are able to experience the classic elegance of the Fairmont Chateau Laurier, I highly recommend it. It's a beautiful chateau-style limestone ediface in Ottawa with modernized grand old spaces that is sure to create a memorable experience. Their renowned fine dining restaurant, the Wilfrid, offers views of Parliament Hill and it's certainly one of the best hotels in Ottawa.

For my picks, I searched for more affordable but comfortable hotels, that offer good value for the dollar and were well approved by former guests who rated the hotel online.
180 Maclaren Street, Ottawa
The very popular Business Inn is my pick for best value in Ottawa. It has amazingly low prices for what it offers, and it’s centrally located with good transit access. Guests enjoy its clean and spacious suites with fully-equipped kitchens, featuring 46” LCD TVs with free movie channels, DVD players, and pillow-top mattresses. Some suites come with balconies. Business travellers can utilize a host of business-related amenities in each suite which exceeds the standards for modern hotels. Each suite includes a work station with a computer, monitor and laser printer and the hotel provides IT support during regular business hours, as well as free photocopy and fax services. Clothes steamers are an added plus, and guests will appreciate free laundry facilities on site, along with free detergent. Other free amenities include Wi-Fi, a generous and varied breakfast and local calls. Parking is an extra $11 for outdoors and $13 for underground. There’s a 24-hr fitness centre making it easy to get in some needed workouts and the on-site restaurant, Maclaren's on Elgin, serves lunch and dinner. The hotel is a 5-minute drive or 15-minute walk to Byward Market and the Rideau Centre.
2400 Alert Road, Ottawa
The full-service Hilton Garden Inn Ottawa Airport comes highly recommended by its guests and it’s my pick for its excellent amenities and service. It’s a newer hotel that is located about a 6-minute drive from the airport and about 20 minutes from the Byward Market area. Guest rooms are spacious and inviting and feature high-definition TVs, mini-fridges and microwaves. The Pavillion Pantry on site, makes snacking or light in-room meals an easy convenience by providing microwavable meals. There’s an on-site restaurant serving three meals a day for those who don’t want to venture out of the hotel. The hotel also offers a fitness and business centre and indoor pool for guest use. Free amenities on offer are Wi-Fi, parking and airport shuttle services. Prices at the Hilton vary a lot, and it may be worth your while to keep an eye out for some sales for this great hotel with great staff.
72 Rideau Heights Drive, Ottawa
The highly-rated and well-kept Rideau Heights Inn is a motel-style property with drive-up rooms on the edge of Ottawa in a lovely setting of trees. It’s my pick for value based on its lower room price, and the comfort and experience it affords its guests. It’s about 20 minutes from downtown and 9 minutes driving time from the airport. Guest rooms are basic, but comfortable and clean and come with the customary amenities along with flat screen TVs and mini-fridges. The hotel offers Wi-Fi, breakfast and parking for free and allows guests to park their vehicle at the motel while travelling.

Choosing A Hotel in Ottawa

Quick Summary of Most Popular Areas
Downtown Ottawa: home to Parliament Hill and the Supreme Court of Canada
Byward Market: crawling with activity at all hours from cafes, museums and street markets to restaurants, pubs and clubs

Where to Stay in Ottawa
Ottawa really is a beautiful city, as it should be considering it is the capital city of Canada (and ultimately where all your tax dollars go). The integration of the Rideau Canal (both beautiful and functional in the summer and winter) is scenic and really creates a certain uniqueness and maximization of a waterfront compared to other cities (ahem...Toronto). You can't help but feel a little patriotic when you visit downtown Ottawa to see the historic Parliament Hill. A patriotism we Canadians seem to only let out as a unified voice once every 4 years when our Olympic men's hockey team dominates the rest of the world (except in 2006, but we won't speak of that). Also on that note, if you do plan to visit Ottawa I would highly recommend going for Canada Day. The crowds are absolutely insane, but it's definitely an experience everyone should have at least once in their life.

Home to both the Supreme Court of Canada and one of the Canadian Mint locations, downtown Ottawa is pretty much where the laws and money of Canada are made. The Ottawa Mint really only produces commemorative and collector coins and not high volumes of paper money.

While there are not a lot of hotels in Byward Market this hip hangout area (just across the Rideau Canal from downtown) is an entirely walkable four blocks of boutiques, restaurants, outdoor markets, spas, museums and art galleries.

Staying in a hotel near Ottawa airport is a convenient option if you need to quickly get to and from the airport, however be advised that these are not near downtown or Byward Market. If you are in Ottawa for even just a short while and have business in the city it would probably be best to stay in a hotel in downtown Ottawa instead of taking a taxi or public transit in and out of the city everyday.

Things To Do In The Surrounding Area
If jumping to another province sounds exciting (it really isn't, but anyway...) then you're in luck when staying in Ottawa. A short trip across the Alexandra Bridge or King Edward Avenue brings you to nearby Gatineau, home to the Canadian Museum of History, a great place for an educational and family-friendly afternoon. But, why bother, you're probably better off just taking in the awesome atmosphere in Byward Market.
