TD place is nice, except the closest hotel is a 20ish minute walk.
I could drive this, so a maybe for me. I'll need to see where Skate America ends up first.
If you want to start looking into accommodations -AirBnb has some lodging options closer to the arena. I got one about a 10 minute walk from the TD Place Arena.
It doesn't look like Ottawa's subway system is as expansive as Montreal or even Toronto.
Incorrect! The subway system opened in September of this year. It however does not service the lansdown area yet, which is where the venue is.
