This is our second stay at the Ottawa Marriott both during the winter festival called Winterlude. They serve a wonderful breakfast buffett with fresh fruit and fresh om, ets to our order. This gives a good and hearty start for a day in the cold weather. A short walk gets you to the confederation park to view the many ice sculptures. Real design and artistic technique talent and time are dedicated to this amazing art form. We arrived in time to see some of the artists at work on the projects on opening night January 31st.
Last year we also toured the lovely and interesting Parliament which is only a short walk away as well.
Agreat location and great helpful stafg.
The crowds and lines were very long on the weekend days. We peeked thru the official lines and then returned on Monday night and saw them all without any crowds. Stay for a weekday if you can to enjoy the art in peace.
Skating on the UNESCO Heritage Sight Rideau Canal is also within range. Over 7 kilometers of groomed jice for some of the best outdoor skating anywhere. There are skates to rent and places to rest as well as snack places. We used our own skates that we bought there.
The Ottawa Marriott discovered we had a terrible travel day and surprised use with a lovely note and coupons for the first days breskfast . A really thoughtful comforting gift obviously thanks to an attentive check in person.
Our luggage was lost in transit to add to the travel woes. They provided us with robes to help us out.
