Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

A bright and modern upscale hotel that stays busy year-round

This bright and modern hotel stays busy year-round for many reasons. Its proximity to the Canadian Tire Centre and free shuttle to and from the arena makes it popular with hockey fans and concertgoers. Weddings and corporate meetings are big business here, as are golf getaways and spa weekends. Its amenities also make it a favorite staycation destination for many locals. As such, the registration lines, elevators, and bars/restaurants can be quite crowded at peak times. The spacious and airy lobby features two-story glass walls and amber wood paneling in curved patterns that create an upscale ambience. One attractive aspect of this large hotel is the ability to escape the crowds on the beautifully landscaped grounds.

Location

In a quiet setting adjacent to a golf course, about 25 minutes southwest of downtown Ottawa
