Ottawa Hotels, Health Clubs, Restaurants, Retailers, and More, Recommended by Leading Healthy Travel Content Company

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 26, 2006) - Athletic-Minded Traveler LLC, a San Diego based media company that operates the largest healthy travel site on the web,, released its ranking of Ottawa's healthiest hotels. Seven accommodations (organized and reviewed by price category) received the company's recommendation after in-depth research and anonymous personal tours by the editorial staff.

In addition to healthy hotel recommendations, the travel portal also provides other Ottawa healthy lifestyle information, including: superior health clubs and gyms, healthy eating options, running routes, lap pools, athletic-minded retailers, and more. The site offers similar content for nearly 100 other North American destinations, including Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal (with Calgary and Edmonton soon to come).

"We are proud to expand our coverage into the cultural and government hub of Ottawa," said Jim Kaese, co-founder and Managing Member of Athletic-Minded Traveler LLC. "With healthcare costs skyrocketing and studies demonstrating that healthier employees produce more and cost less (e.g., people who exercise on business trips perform 61% better than non-exercisers), the site affords our corporate customers a simple method to distribute customized healthy lifestyle content to employees as part of wellness and work-life programs. These Ottawa establishments deserve special recognition for supporting and encouraging travelers' healthy and active lifestyles."

To arrive at its top picks, the editorial staff uses a model that rates location, room features, dining options, amenities and guest services, with extra weight given to on-site or nearby fitness facilities. To maintain the objectivity and integrity of its ratings, Athletic Minded Traveler LLC does not receive any financial compensation from recommended businesses.
