Travel Deal for August 21, 2012
Vincent van Gogh is wrapping up his summer of starry nights in Canada’s Capital Region and if you haven’t stopped by to see him, here’s the opportunity to do so for an incredibly low price.
Van Gogh: Up Close (National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa) and the IMAX film Van Gogh: Brush with Genius (Canadian Museum of Civilization in Gatineau, Quebec) conclude their respective runs on Labour Day, September 3.
Tourism Ottawa is offering an outstanding hotel deal that includes admission for two to both the National Gallery exhibit and the IMAX movie at the Canadian Museum of Civilization. Also, you will have the chance to choose from several Ottawa hotels for your holiday. If you stay for three nights, your third night is half price.
Vacay.ca Recommends This Hotel Deal
Book with Hotel Indigo, a boutique property five blocks south of Parliament Hill, and the three-night package rate with tickets to the Van Gogh exhibits at both museums costs just under $475 with taxes over the Labour Day weekend. (The price is based on search results conducted on August 20, 2012.)
Vacay.ca Managing Editor Adrian Brijbassi says Hotel Indigo “is a mid-priced boutique hotel affiliated with Holiday Inn that offers what a good hotel should: a marvellously comfortable bed and pleasant customer service. It’s also reasonably priced.” The hotel rooms feature hardwood floors, spacious bathrooms, plush beds, room-darkening curtains, flat-screen TVs and complimentary WiFi access. There are many other hotels to choose from with the Van Gogh Experience travel deal, but most are pricier than this option, which comes in at less than $160 per night for the package.
Wherever you decide to stay, you will enjoy a must-see exhibition at the National Gallery that delves into Van Gogh’s love of the natural world, including still life paintings and pastoral landscapes of France and Holland.
