Situated in the business district, Delta Ottawa City Centre is a seven min walk to Parliament Hill, where every summer morning at 10:00am, you can experience the Changing of the Guard. While on Parliament Hill, experience the “whispering wall.” If you have someone stand or sit at either end you can hear what the other person whispers.
My son who lives in Ottawa along with his girlfriend who was up visiting from Kingston took in the bilingual Sound and Light Show on Parliament Hill. The show takes place every night after dark between early July and early September. Huge images are projected onto the Parliament Buildings, using them as a giant screen.

On our recent trip to Ottawa we stayed at the Delta Ottawa City Centre in a mode-deluxe room situated on the eighth floor. One thing I should note if this is the first time staying at the hotel opt for valet parking. Valet Parking is available for $27.00 + tax, while self parking is available for $22.00 + tax. Self parking is a confusing hassle. We had to circle the block several times, before we could figure out how to get into the underground garage. Once in the garage we had to figure out where to park and how to get into the hotel.
Customer service seems to be very important to this hotel, which is very refreshing. From check in to check out staff insured that our stay was enjoyable. The concierge went so far as to give a brief history of the area and a map so we wouldn’t get lost.
Upon check-in our daughter received an age-specific “Kids’ Essentials” kit, which is given to all children from infant to age 7.
