Spring in the nation’s capital is splendid. The annual Tulip Festival blossoms with excitement, the NHL’s Ottawa Senators appear headed back to the playoffs, and museums of all sorts pack in art and activities for the family. There’s lots for visitors to see and with the Weekend Madness offer from Brookstreet Hotel, you can pack even more in because spending the night in Ottawa is amazingly affordable.
An outstanding hotel, with spa, dining and golf, the Brookstreet features a $99 nightly rate until May 20, 2013 on a limited number of rooms. A short drive from Scotiabank Place, home of the Senators, in suburban Kanata, Brookstreet gives you a spacious and accommodating place to call home during your weekend getaway.
With the Tulip Festival running from May 3-20 this year, taking advantage of this low rate while it lasts seems like a savvy move. The Weekend Madness hotel deal requires all bookings to be paid in full at the time of reservation and all payments are non-refundable.
Vacay.ca Spotlights the Tulip Festival
Vacay.ca Outdoors Columnist Tricia Edgar checked out the revamped Canadian Tulip Festival in 2012 and made it a point to stop to smell the buds blooming in the Capital Region.
Edgar writes: “There’s no need to tiptoe. In fact, you’ll want to leap, prance, and tango your way down the rows of tulips at this year’s Tulip Festival in Ottawa. The Canadian Tulip Festival is so well known that the tulip has become the image of Ottawa in the spring. In May, Major’s Hill Park, Commissioners Park, and even the Parliament buildings have a spread of blooms. The beauty of this tulip-strewn landscape draws photographers from all over the world. Whether the tulips are planted along a pathway at Dow’s Lake or in a box at the busy Byward Market, May in Ottawa means that waves of tulips cascade over the region, drawing visitors into a fairyland of colour.”
