Exceeding Expectations.  One Stay At A Time.

When you stay at our Ottawa hotel, you can anticipate extra-special delights that only an independent hotel run by a single family for more than half a century can provide.

We are totally committed to providing you with services for the way you live today. From a fully equipped pool and fitness centre to a 24-hour business centre with free WiFi, guest laundry facilities, valet service, airport shuttle, and Starbucks® coffee in our lobby, Southway sets our sights high and our standards even higher.

“My grandparents broke ground in 1958 and we’ve been welcoming guests ever since. It’s not just our business.
It’s our life’s work.”

Stephen Zlepnig, General Manager

We provide a full range of hotel guest services.

From the moment you pull up to our beautifully landscaped entrance in our free airport shuttle to the moment you bid farewell to our friendly staff, get ready to unchain your expectations.  We treat you like the valued guest you are.  More

We support green initiatives.

Southway believes that each of us must do our part to conserve our natural resources.  We take our role as steward of the environment very seriously and are committed to green practices and responsible tourism throughout our hotel.  More

Special features

Our attention to detail is evidenced even before you set foot in our hotel.  Meticulous landscaping accented with waterfalls and lily pods greets you from the start.  And our relaxing enclosed courtyard, with blooming flowers, sculpture, and seating areas, is a perfect place to relax or enjoy a quiet conversation after your meeting, day’s activities, or workout at our fitness centre.
