This year, as you’re planning your Canada 150 celebration in Ottawa, there’s now a new place to stay in town. The luxury boutique Andaz Hotel has made their way into the lively Byward Market offering a modern retreat within the centre of the city. What drew me first to the Andaz was the location set within steps of restaurants, museums and other Ottawa attractions. They currently have 200 rooms on 16 floors and an onsite restaurant, Feast + Revel. and Copper, the rooftop bar.But what made me want to stay was the rooms that boast some of the best aerial views of the city overlooking Byward Market, the National Gallery, Ottawa River and Gatineau Hills. The rooms are filled with complimentary Canadian-made snacks. Each room is furnished with luxury amenities with touches of Ottawa found throughout designed by Mason Studios creating a tranquil space of pale neutrals and soft copper finishes. The artwork found throughout the hotel and rooms are made by local Ottawa artists and illustrators. Straying from the traditional hotel model, the Andaz hotel is committed to supporting local artists and entrepreneurs with the soaps made locally from The Purple Urchin.
