Rated 4 out of 5 Great place to stay to celebrate Canada Day!
Stayed at the hotel for the Canada Day weekend. The location was fantastic as it was right there smack in the middle of everything - shop, stroll the Rideau Canal, go to Byward Market, participate in the July 1st celebrations and watch the fireworks! Just parked my car when I arrived and never had to take it out the whole weekend. There was only three minor things I didn't like. First was the hotel parking lot has a height restriction for cars max. 6'1, but my SUV is 6'3". Second, the long lineup to checkin. They had two people working the counters and sometimes just one. They would finish serving someone then asked if anyone in line was a platnium member and then would serve them first, even if others had been waiting longer. The third was the long wait for the elevators during the weekend because one elevator was not in service. It was a horrible weekend to have one elevator down. The night of July 1st, I waited 15 minutes for the elevator before it finally stopped on my floor. It was still a great stay so I would still stay there again.

Every staff member was incredibly friendly and helpful. They are accomodating and knowledgable - from the concierge to the elevator attendant to the banquet staff. I highly recommend The Westin for future corporate functions, or a personal stay.

My floor was under construction and the room was fine, but constant noise from workers through-out my stay. This floor should not be occupied while the construction was ongoing. I was very disappointed with the noise and cardboard on the floors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by oscar99 Elevator Problem Very Annoying
It was very slow getting from one's floor to any place in the hotel. That known inconvenience should have been provided with some sort of offset or tangible acknowledgement. Your rates are fairly high and some adjustment should have been made.

Hotel is centrally located, easy access to convention centre, shopping. The staff are exceptional - always friendly, willing to accommodate, cheerful and warm. Long wait for elevators under repair were forgiven due to great service by staff.

Sorted out a great room for me after I arrived without a booking.
Staff were friendly and attentive.
Details of booking went awry (they thought I was checking out a day early) but the confusion was easily resolved. Staff there are lovely.

Enjoyed a plesant weekend at the Ottawa Westin and was treated to an unexpected upgrade to a corner "Junior Suite". Melissa worked very hard to resolve a complicated "back-to-back" booking and final got permission to move me to the upgrade.

The staff & facilities at the Westin Ottawa were kind, considerate, patient, caring & above all else, professional. In addition to the top-notch service at this property is its excellent location to just "where you want to be" in Ottawa.

Rated 3 out of 5 Acoustics
This room had several types of noises all night. I am not a light sleeper but will awake to unusual sounds and the room had 2 intermittent mechanical patterns that held my attention periodically. Probably not the elevator, as we were as far away as possible from them, and the other rooms were boisterous but not at 3 or 4 in the morning. The sound was like the flaps being retracted on an airliner. one minute on, one minute off.
Although the hotel had facilities for a group as large as CREA were quite sufficient, the wait for elevators was long and irritating for a group that size. I can only imagine the frustration of your regular guests when the CREA group impacted them all at once. I applaud the best efforts made to compensate by opening up your service elevators. that is never ideal for guests or your long suffering staff and their ability to rapidly serve the entire hotel's clientele.
I can only hope that the new elevators are more swift than the previous ones, because the congestion at convention breaks has always been an issue at your property.

Many times the "make or break" factor in meetings is the staff at the site. Westin Ottawa is definitely all about great staff - always efficient, polite and willing to go the extra mile! And all iwth a smile on thier face! Wonderful!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Kitkat2121 Poor customer service
Just spent a week in Ottawa, and was shocked by the poor customer service we experienced at the Westin as well as just about every restaurant we attended. Will think twice before returning. Only good thing was the breakfast buffet.

We were met by a very helpful doorman. First impressions are always imperative. That immediately started our stay on a great note. We stayed only for one night but will definitely return to this location when we are back in town.

I was very happy with my stay. I always have a hard time sleeping in hotels and I still slept well. Bed was comfortable but pillows was a bit big for my neck giving me slight stiffness.

Hotel is in great location. However, rooms are in need of renovation. Carpet was worn and beds we lopsided. One day they ran out of wash clothes, had to wait till the next day. Otherwise hotel was good and close to everything.
