THe thing is that in Ottawa Gatineau aera you don't have much choice for venue.
1.Hampton Inn, dosen't want any other anime covention, I try that place; they never call me back.
2.Crowne Plaza, is a viable place, event with the staff problem, I just do think that the staff was ready for a con, or that the normal costumers of this hotel XD
This one is easy access a less. I prefer it at travel lodge.
3.Travel Lodge might be too small for the need of AC3, but that is a possible choice.
4.You have a Holiday in that might be a possibility downtown Ottawa.
At first glance travellodge seem to be better.
5.The Arc Hotel do not have space for Ac3.
6.Les Suite d'Ottawa have less then 10 000 square feets, so forget about it.
7.The embassy Hotel: http://www.embassyhotelottawa.com/
, not event to mention it
8.THe Radisson is to small and they go 3 room.
9.Same for the best western.
10.And much can be said about the other hotel in Ottawa.
I hope a did not forget one.
11.Congres Center of Ottawa is dead for a few years and it will cost a fortune.
But everything is more expensive in ottawa. I imagine a small room should be around 750 to 900$ per day.
12. The other place possible that will not happen for sur:
Hotel Place Cartier: In Alymers, I doubt that people we want to got there by bus during the week end. Anyway it is in Québec and out Ottawa. Also, that a mess to get room there, I was Calling in March and half the metting room where book for Feb 09...O o
13. Fourth point Sheraton: You have space to a certain degree, but you have the Palais connect to it. It is in Québec.
14. The Palais, it is in Québec, we are there, so event if that a great place they will not come.
I am ready to said that the venue will be number 2, 3 or 4 for Ac3, that just commun sense....
