Affordable Comfort in the Heart of the Capital

The Residence and Conference Centre is one of the best places to stay in downtown Ottawa if you are in for an extended visit (couple of weeks or even couple of months).  It’s a definite alternative to some of the pricier accommodations in the capital and is located on genteel Main Street in a really nice part of the city. It's just minutes away from many of Ottawa’s most popular attractions including Parliament Hill, the National Gallery, War Museum, Ottawa’s Rideau Centre and the ByWard Market, the Canal, Elgin Street and the Train Yards shopping plaza.

The Residence and Conference Centre (Downtown) is also close to the campus of Saint Paul’s university (note: there is also one by Algonquin College in the West End). It offers exceptional value for your money while providing many of the amenities you get at other hotels. Each suite offers air conditioning, high speed internet access, a refrigerator, free local telephone calls and cable television. There are several shops and restaurants nearby including The Green Door, one of Ottawa’s most legendary and popular restaurants. It's been serving delicious vegan meals since 1988!

The Residence and Conference Centre is also benefiting greatly from the nearly complete Main Street renewal project and upgrade. The project will transform the neighbourhood  and make Main Street a complete street ,a real livable safe place for people featuring reduced car traffic, bicycle lanes and wide sidewalks for pedestrian access. Phase two of this project begins in 2018 with the 17.5 million dollar construction of the Fifth-Clegg pedestrian bridge over the Rideau Canal that will connect the Main Street community directly with Fifth Avenue in the Glebe.

This means guests at The Residence and Conference Centre will be minutes away from all the popular shops and hotspots and bars and cinemas at Lansdowne Park, and the Ottawa Farmers Market.

So if you are staying at the downtown Residence & Conference Centre on Main you have direct access to the best of Ottawa at a very affordable cost. It’s a real and comfortable alternative to less affordable downtown Ottawa hotels.
