Ottawa’s Winterlude festival, taking place this year from February 2 to 20, attracts thousands of visitors who partake in a multitude of indoor and outdoor winter activities. McKellar Park Suites is pleased to offer accommodation specials during the event.

Online PR News – 03-February-2012 – – Everyone knows that staying in a downtown hotel for more than a few nights can be an expensive proposition, so apartment suites have become more popular and less expensive alternatives.

According to Allen Kerwin, General Manager of the McKellar Park Suites in Ottawa, ON, (www.mckellarpark.com) comfort is the main reason why apartment accommodation is preferred over all-suite hotels. Guests feel immediately at home at McKellar Park, which offers full-sized furnished rentals of either one or two bedrooms, with an eat-in kitchen, a four-piece bathroom, air-conditioning, free local calls and wireless high-speed Internet.

“We offer guests a complete home environment away from their homes,” Kerwin says. The family-owned business has been in operation at the same location since 1956. According to guest testimonials, the on-site manager and friendly staff ensure that guests have enjoyable and comfortable stays.

McKellar Park offers short-, medium-, or long-term stays to both families and corporate guests. Long-term apartment accommodations are popular options with families transferring in to the Ottawa area for the federal government or hi-tech companies, contract workers needing furnished apartments and people temporarily needing a place to live while they sell or buy a house. Kerwin says the average stay is three to five months, noting that McKellar Park Suites provides the conveniences of an Ottawa hotel in a residential setting.

The three buildings with a total of 33 apartment suites are located in quiet McKellar Park in Ottawa’s west end. Located only 10 minutes from the attractions of downtown Ottawa, the extended stay apartments offer guests two HD televisions, full cable and in-room movies, weekly maid service and free parking.
