With so many of the city's main attractions, eateries and hotels centred around the tranquil Ottawa River, you'll have no problem finding somewhere central to rest your head in Canada's capital city.
If you choose to stay in one of the flashy downtown hotels you'll be within walking distance of the iconic Parliament Hill, fascinating National Gallery and trendy ByWard Market. And, while centrally located hotels aren't exclusive to high-end brands, you'll find a better selection of affordable accommodation if you head a little further out of the city.
