Our hotel in Ottawa near the Rideau Canal is the perfect place to spend some time during your visit to Canada's capital city. One of the most iconic images of the city, the Rideau Canal is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is the oldest operating canal system in North America.
The Rideau Canal was originally constructed in the war of 1812 as a way to connect the St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario to bypass enemy fire along the St. Lawrence in New York, while also serving a commercial purpose to connect these two bodies of water.
Today, the Rideau Canal is most popular in the wintertime when the large channel becomes the Rideau Canal Skate way, drawing thousands of visitors to the area. Regarded as “The world’s largest skating rink”, a skate on the Rideau Canal is a must-do activity for guest’s visiting Ottawa in the winter. One of the main attractions during Ottawa’s annual Winterlude event, visitors can enjoy a glide along the canal, while stopping to enjoy tasty treats like Ottawa's signature Beavertail pastries along the way!
