The Byward Market opened in 1826, and today is one of the largest and oldest public markets in the country. As Ottawa's top tourist attraction, the market sees about 50,000 visitors on summer weekends and is home to more than 500 businesses including restaurants, nightlife, designer boutiques, bookshops, beauty services, cultural establishments and this hotel in Ottawa. The market is steeped in history and boasts Ottawa's oldest tavern, the 1849 Chateau Lafayette, and Ottawa's oldest and largest church, the 1885 Notre Dame Basilica.
An entire day could be spent exploring the market, and after walking, shopping and eating one's way through the area, it might be time to sit back and relax. Retreat to the Courtyard Ottawa Downtown, just steps away, and take a load off in the flexible lobby, where The Bistro offers Starbucks® coffee beverages, beer and wine. Get some relief in the whirlpool, or take a load off in a comfortable bed, dressed with fluffy pillows, a cozy duvet and crisp linens.
