Explore Ottawa from This Convenient Lodging
The natural beauty of Canada is everywhere you look when you book a stay at the Country Inn & Suites Ottawa West. Lodging here ensures a convenient and comfortable stay thanks to a great location near Gatineau Park and the Rideau Canal, and only a 20-minute drive west of downtown Ottawa. Less than a kilometre from Highway 417, this hotel is the only property within walking distance of the Canadian Tire Centre (formerly Scotiabank Place). In addition to hosting the Ottawa Senators hockey team, the arena is also a great spot to catch a concert, year-round. History buffs shouldn't miss the area's wealth of interesting museums and historic sites, including the Billings Estate and the Canada Science and Technology Museum. And if you're ready to go out on the town, Byward Market's nightclubs and shopping venues are about 22 kilometres from the hotel. In Ottawa on business? Macdonald-Cartier International Airport (YOW) is 32 kilometres away.
