AHILTON GARDEN INN opened in August just outside the Ottawa International Airport grounds. The 168-room (including bedrooms and suites) hotel, complete with restaurant and bar, is now the hotel closest to the airport.
THE HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS HOTEL & SUITES OTTAWA AIRPORT opened in December 2008 at the corner of Uplands and Hunt Club Road.
Other hotels in the works: A 191room MARRIOTT RESIDENCE INN in the Bank Street and Walkley Road neighbourhood (south of downtown), a 65-room DAYS INN at St. Joseph Boulevard and Tenth Line in Orléans (east Ottawa), a 115room hotel at Robertson Road and Moodie Drive in Bells Corners (west Ottawa), and a 74-room hotel in Kanata (west Ottawa). There’s also another hotel in the planning stages set for Orléans.
