Host Hotel: Alt Hotel Ottawa

We have negotiated a special rate of $139 CAD per night between September 16 and September 19 with Alt Hotel Ottawa at 185 Slater Street. Call them toll free at 844-258-6882 and ask for the special Veer North to the Capital rate.

This hotel is a very short walk to the Montgomery Legion where all of the dancing will take place and it is a short walk to most points of interest including the Bywad Market, the Rideau Shopping Centre and Parliament Hill.

Note: For those wishing to arrive early or stay extra days, the hotel has told us that they are willing to extend this special rate for up to two days before or two days after the fly-in but you must call to confirm when making your booking as rooms may be limited.

 

The Gilmour Inn:

Just a short drive away from our dance venue, The Gilmour Inn is a gay owned bed and breakfast and they would love to be your accommodation host for your stay in Ottawa. Visit their website for full details. www.thegilmourinn.com

Other accommodations will be announced soon.

Public Transit

Ottawa’s public transit system is called OC Transpo and to get to the host hotel from the airport, you can take the 97 bus that leaves the airport every 15 minutes. Ride this bus to Hurdman station where you will connect to the Confederation Line 1 LRT going westbound toward Tunney’s Pasture. Get off at Parliament station and it’s a two block walk south to Slater.

A one-way ride on OC Transpo will cost $3.60 and you should have exact change because drivers can’t make change and they don’t accept credit cards.

Note: Presto Pass holders (ex: from Toronto) can use their pass on our buses.
