The Candus have partnered with Minto Properties to receive preferred rates at the Minto Suites Hotel when staying in Ottawa for swim meets and other events (all Candu families are welcome to use this until Decemeber 31, 2012). This definitely helps when the competitive team is travelling during peak tourist times in the Nation's Capital when room rates across the city are temporarily elevated - often times regional meets are held during Winterlude and the annual Tulip Festival!
Call the reservation line 1-800-267-3377 and ask for the 'Deep River Candu Swim Club' rate. The rate is the following: One bedroom suite with efficiency kitchen $169/night; One bedroom suite with full kitchen $179/night; two bedroom suite with full kitchen $199/night. Before doing this, check the website http://www.minto.com/find-a-hotel-in-ottawa/projects.html to see if the 'Best Available Rate' for online bookings is lower (sometimes during low travel times it is!).
Travelling with the team? Inquire around to share a two bedroom suite with another family - there's more than enough room to host you all comfortably!
