Touch of Bohemia
A friend of mine recently bought tickets to an amazing concert in Vancouver, B.C... scheduled during the Olympics. So, she is at present without accommodation. Here's hoping that perhaps she will be able to find even a B&B something like this one – Auberge Des Arts – that is located here in Ottawa near the National Gallery. It's a quaint little place and there are some original decorating ideas (love the tile in the loo!). Plus, you definitely cannot bet the location: in the heart of Byward Market, mere blocks from the major attractions of the city including the Currency Museum, Notre Dame Cathedral Basilica, Alexandra Bridge, and Parliament, of course. You may want to inquire if you are planning an excursion this way any time soon as I'm certain they book up early.
