Safe Travels: An Ottawa Getaway

21 September 2020

Rediscover Ottawa, at a few hours’ drive only from Montreal and Toronto! While tourism slowly resumes and regions are stormed by travellers, Arthur suggests you to visit the Federal Capital, which have changed a lot since your last end-of-school-year class trip.

Where to stay

Experience how the elegant oasis of a Le Germain Hotel blends effortlessly into the vitality of Ottawa. Savour the hotel’s artful design, spectacular views, and proximity to key attractions like the Parliament Buildings. The newly-renovated Prestige Suite is offered at a preferred rate, exclusively to Arthur Majordome members!

What to do

"Mommy" by Louise Bourgeois, in front of the National Gallery of Canada

Visit the National Gallery of Canada, amid one of the most iconic public buildings in Canada and one of the most respected art institutions of the international scene. Upon its creation in 1880, its collection boiled down to a unique 19th century landscape. Over 140 years later, the Museum is home to over 75,000 works of art, as well as the extensive library and archive collection, representing one of the finest collections of Canadian and Indigenous art in the world, as well as pieces of many other artistic traditions. The Museum’s collections allow everyone to appreciate artistic expression at its best: works of art that teach us about the past, celebrate the present and explore the future.
