Host Hotel: Courtyard Marriott Downtown Ottawa

We have negotiated a special rate of $139 CAD per night between September 16 and September 19, 2021 with Courtyard Marriott Downtown Ottawa at 350 Dalhousie Street. Call them toll free at 800-341-2210 and ask for the special Veer North to the Capital rate.

This hotel is located in the heart of the world famous Byward Market and is very close to all amenities including public transit, shopping, museums, bars and restaurants as well as Parliament Hill.

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.

Note: All dancing will take place at this hotel where the ballroom flooring is carpet. Special “dance socks” which go over your shoes will be available for purchase that make dancing on carpet just as fun and easy as dancing on hard flooring.

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 very short walk into the Byward market and to the host hotel.

A one-way ride on OC Transpo will cost $3.65 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.
