Step out of the hotel and find yourself steps away from the ByWard Market, a buzzing hub of outdoor farmers’ market stalls and specialty food shops selling Canadian cheese and maple-infused chocolate. It is also known for its colorful street art and hip stores filled with crafts and clothes by local designers. Surrounding eateries serve shawarma and BeaverTails (sweet fried pastries in the shape of a beaver’s tail). Nightlife encompasses rustic taverns and stylish bars.
