We have negotiated a special rate of $169 CAD per night between September 17 and September 19 with The Courtyard Marriott at 350 Dalhousie Street, Ottawa, Ontario in the Byward Market. Use the link below or call them directly at 613-241-1000 and ask for the special Veer North to the Capital rate.
This hotel is a very short walk to the Arts Court Theatre where all of the dancing will be taking place and it is right in the middle of one of the most trendy and active parts of the city.
Note: For those wishing to arrive early or stay extra days, the hotel has told us that they may be willing to extend this special rate 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

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 Rideau station and you will be about one block from the hotel.
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.
Here is a Google Map link to the trip from the airport to the host hotel (Courtyard Marriott Downtown).
