Re: PLaces to stay with a kitchen
I would suggest you google Ottawa Suite hotels; these will have kitchens and would suggest you stay in the downtown area; that will make the commute easier for your wife and mother.
Lots of Ottawa related things on my Ottawa and Gatineau pages:
"Ottawa - Canada's Capital" - Ottawa by GrumpyDiver
"Gatineau Quebec" - Gatineau by GrumpyDiver
I assume your children are fairly young, so a few things I haven't written up yet:
The Agriculture Museum at the Central Experimental Farm has heritage farm animals; ususally of interest to the youngers.
The Canadian Museum of Civilization has the Children's Museum, which is something my daughters loved when they were young.
Changing of the Guard starts at 10:00 every day through the end of August - certainly worth while watching if you are in town and links in nicely with a visit to the Parliament Buildings. There is a sound and light show on Parliament Hill at night as well.
There are also the Aviation Musuem, RCMP Stables, Museum of Science and Technology, National Gallery of Canada and War Museum, Currency Museum.
Lots of other things too for 3 or 4 days.
