    The official hotel of the 2016 CLA National Forum is the Delta Ottawa City Centre.

    A discounted group rate has been set up with the following:

    • $215 CAD per night, single / double occupancy
    • includes complimentary internet in guestroom
    • this rate applies to Mode Room / Mode Deluxe Room
    • check-in is 3:00 PM and check-out is 12:00 PM


    Book before Friday, April 29th to secure a room at our group rate!

    NOTE: The CLA would like to discourage the practice of holding reservations for delegates who may or may not attend the conference. Last-minute hotel cancellations can prevent other delegates from attending.

    To help keep rooms available, the Delta Ottawa will be processing a non-refundable deposit equal to $100.00 for the room(s) reserved with our event code; if multiple rooms are reserved, each room will require a deposit. This deposit will be charged by the hotel to the credit card on file.

    Cancellation of individual reservations made up to 4:00 PM on the day of arrival will be accepted, and the guarantees refunded less the $100 non-refundable deposit.

    Special Events happening in Ottawa May 28-29, 2016

    There are several events happening in Ottawa besides the CLA Conference such as the Ottawa Race Weekend happening May 28-29 which will impact availability in advance of conference. Should you wish to begin your stay early, note that the hotels in Ottawa have a “special event” policy in effect which requires a non-refundable deposit of $400. Should you wish to arrive in advance of the Forum start date you can contact for assistance in having the non-refundable deposit reduced to the Forum rate.  Please secure your room to avoid disappointment.

    Please Note: CLA does not solicit “special offer” lodging reservations via telephone, email or fax and does not contract lodging through any housing bureau.
