Back in October of last year I got a call from the General Hospital in Ottawa. At the age of 56, my father had been brought in after suffering from a heart attack and was going to be staying a few days for observation. It was scary to think something like this could take such a close family member, and mentor of mineą.and so unexpectedly!

This is one reason why I am very proud to say that this year the hotel is going to be lighting up red for the month of February in support of the Heart and Stroke Foundation and all the fantastic volunteers and donors they have. Where would we be without all of these people?

It is such a small part we are playing in directing peopleĘs attention to Heart Month. The real heroes are the oneĘs who have given their time, money and devotion to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. We are happy to be kicking-off Heart Month in Ottawa and taking the first step forward for another year of life-saving research.

We feel so lucky to be one of the two landmark locations in the city to be a part of Heart Month this year (the other is Residence Inn by Marriott) and want to invite everyone out to celebrate all the great volunteers and donors who have helped out the Heart and Stroke Foundation. February 3rd at 5pm we are lighting up the hotel redącome show your support for healthy hearts!
