Apart from AirBNB, there are several hotels and hostels near the conference venue in the Sandy Hill area of Ottawa. Below, we've listed some suggestions worth exploring. All had availability as of mid-August, but the word on the street is that Ottawa B&Bs are in higher than usual demand this fall owing to higher than average shoulder season tourism related to the Canadian sesquicentennial anniversary. Book early to avoid disappointment! Please note that rates and availability will change, so you’ll have to confirm details when you contact them. ClimaCON does not have special rates or room blocks with any of these spots.
