GranFondoOttawa is pleased to again be staging our 2017 event [Sixth Edition] on July 15th at the Richcraft Recreation Complex in Kanata North, 4101 Innovation Drive, off Terry Fox Dr and March Rd in the Kanata North Business Park.
This year is Canada 150 and with Ottawa as our Nation’s Capital, demand is very high for hotels thus hoteliers are not motivated to offer discounted rates nor block off rooms for events.
To further complicate matters, our hotel partner for the past 5-years – Brookstreet Hotel is hosting an International Horse Show/Event, thus they have limited rooms and are not able to accommodate us this year – as in the past with a large block of rooms at the $129.00 rate.
We have however been offered a rate of $189.00 with parking and WiFi however rooms are limited. If you wish to book with them, please do so on an ASAP basis to avoid disappointment.
Please use code GF2017
We have also approached every major hotel in the immediate Kanata area and none are offering discounted rates for the July 14/15/16 weekend given the number of events in the Reggio Capitale’ – Canada’s Capital.
We’ve also been told by Ottawa Tourism that downtown visitors are staying as far out as Kanata due to rooms being unavailable in the local Ottawa area.
In general, there are a very limited number of rooms available at the 4 Kanata based hotels and with Canada 150 in full swing, they will sell ALL out.
If Brookstreet or others cannot accommodate, we suggest using Trip Advisor or Expedia to best find hotel options for this year.
The Brookstreet Hotel is conveniently located in the Kanata Research Park less than 1K away from the Start/Finish at the Richcraft Recreation Complex, off March Rd and Terry Fox Dr on Innovation Rd.
