Ottawa Conference Details

We are often asked by attendees of our conferences and workshops in Ottawa about ideal places to stay, eat, shop, and transact business. We have collated a list of the businesses we refer below, curated on the basis of client satisfaction and value offered.

Hotel
The Lord Elgin Hotel is a fixture on Downtown Ottawa’s landscape. A beautiful, ornate property with well appointed rooms and myriad facilities besides, ensuring you will always want to make it your home away from home.

Restaurant
Baton Rouge is a well appointed steak house and bar, but its offerings go beyond steaks and fries. You’ll be sure to find something for even the most discerning palate.

Bar
The Clocktower Brew Pub is one of Ottawa’s favourite micro-breweries. Enjoy a relaxed atmosphere, and refreshing suds, with friends old and new.

Shopping
For shopping at its finest, walk over from your hotel to the beautifully appointed Rideau Centre. Quite simply, its where Ottawa comes together.

Notary
Looking to get documents executed and notarized away from home? Bytowne Notary Public is one of Ottawa’s best for price, convenience and speed. Step through the red doors for great service.

Movies
Looking to see a recently released flick? Ottawa has a number of Cineplex locations, and the South Keys location is conveniently located a 25 minute drive down Bank Street if you are keen on exploring the city.

Parking
Downtown parking can be at a premium. If you aren’t parking at the hotel, look up Parkopedia for options close to you. It’s the only place you need look for parking.

Taxi Service
Going from A to B without a car? The good drivers of Blue Line Taxi are always close by to give you a ride.

We hope you’ll find this list helpful. Please contact us directly by phone or email if we have missed a category you want added, or for any other questions. See you in Ottawa!
