Ottawa, Ontario -- 140 Slater St.
Not opened until 1982, Ottawa's HoJo's was nonstandard and likely among the last to have been opened with a Howard Johnson's Restaurant. While its Restaurant was converted in the middle 1990s, the hotel retained the Howard Johnson name until the early 2000s. By 2005 the site had been transformed into a swank boutique hotel called ARC the Hotel.

Like its sister Howard Johnson's in Kingston, Ottawa featured a Whiskers Lounge and the same "CP" logo.

Note the inclusion of the Fire Safe Sprinkler Control symbol. Perhaps it was an "Ottawa thing."
