Accommodation is limited and expensive in the core of Ottawa in May, 2020 but we have reserved 70 two bedroom suites on campus at the University Hotel at excellent reduced rates ($135). The suites have two hotel style rooms and can accommodate two with one bathroom and kitchenette. They are available for May 24-27 after completing registration on a first come basis.
Other accommodation must be booked independently. Better hotels in the core and market area near the university (Novotel, Lord Elgin, Westin, Chateau Laurier, the Arc, Courtyard market, Andaz, Sheraton Ottawa, Delta, Hilton etc.) are available early but are expensive and will be fully booked closer to the conference date. For more modest budgets the following bed and breakfasts and less costly hotels are most within walking distance. The Swiss hotel B&B (Daly St), Benner B&B (Besserer St), Ambassador B&B, Day’s Inn, Econolodge (both on Rideau St) are in the Sandy Hill –university area. Business Inn , Cartier Place and Embassy Suite are between Elgin and the Canal and are reasonably priced. Another option for standard full service hotels (and for late bookings), is at the St Laurent LRT station (Holiday, Comfort and Welcome Inns) and Tremblay LRT ( Courtyard and Hampton Inns). The LRT will bring you into the campus station very near the conference in 10 min. Gatineau downtown hotels are also close. The old jail hostel is available for those who are adventurous and on a tight budget! Air B&B is a good option.
