OTTAWA, April 7, 2021—Ottawa Tourism and RBC Bluesfest today announced that the Room Service Concert Series: An Ottawa Hotel Exclusive has been postponed to an as-yet-unknown future date. The event—featuring a series of exclusive musical and comedy performances on the hotels’ in-room televisions—was planned to run at 20 participating Ottawa hotels over 8 nights between April 9 and 30. 

People who booked at participating hotels are advised to contact the entity with whom they originally made their booking (the hotel itself, an online travel agency such as Expedia, etc.) to cancel for those April dates


"We wanted Ottawans to continue supporting local businesses and have the mental health benefits of planning a staycation, encouraging them to also consider a museum visit, a guided tour, ordering in food and drink, or dining on a patio, for example," says Michael Crockatt, President and CEO of Ottawa Tourism. “But with the move to stay-at-home through the month of April, it simply is not possible, nor is it consistent with the directions coming from Ottawa Public Health and other entities.” 

“We will announce our rescheduled plans as soon as we are able to,” says Mark Monahan, Executive Director of RBC Ottawa Bluesfest. “We’re speaking with the musicians and comedians and look forward to bringing this entertainment to the city as soon as we can.” 


This promotion aims to increase visitation to Ottawa-area hotels in a safe way, stimulating the local visitor economy, which continues to be hard hit by the pandemic. In 2019, Ottawa saw visitor spending of $2.2 billion but Ottawa Tourism estimates a reduction of more than $1.4 billion of that amount in 2020, and a further loss of more than $1 billion in 2021

  1. Our henna hair dyes were created & started with a vision to help people with sensitive skin & scalp, as most of the hair dyes found in major retail stores contain harsh chemicals that can cause lasting damage if used long term. PPDs, ammonia & SLS are few to mention, these substances are no friend to anyone & could send you to ER if you are not aware of your allergies. With that being said, these compounds are not only harmful to people with sensitive skin, when absorbed in, but they are also one of the major reasons that cause skin diseases and breast cancer in women. We feel like we are contributing to a cause by developing, promoting natural products & spreading awareness of harms that are caused by chemicals.
