Rated 5 out of 5 by kajolu Above and Beyond Friendly and Helpful
I am no one of significance either in status or financial means and because of this was a little intimidated in showing up with 4 kids in tow and frazzled at the end of the day. I was greeted with much warmth and consideration by Brett at the front desk. He made me feel at home and comfortable. My children and I were thrilled with our room. I have been a cleaning lady at a hotel and know what a clean room should be like - yours was excellent!! All the staff that we interacted with made us feel pampered and what a treat at the end of a long day! Thank you especially to Brett for going out of his way to make our stay special:) My children and I HIGHLY recommend staying at the Westin!

The Westin Ottawa is a great hotel. It is presently struggling with its elevator renovations - it takes a long time to get an elevator. This reno is taking way to long.
The hotel does not really utilize its Platinum/Gold check in line.
I have been standing in line only to have them select someone else from the other line. They need to either do away with this line or use it correctly.

I always stay at this hotel when I am in Ottawa. The rooms are consistently clean and comfortable. The staff are always friendly and helpful. I would like to have access to a club room as Westins in other countries generally have club rooms. It very convenient/quick to grab a coffee and a light breakfast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by teddy21 Thank you for a great stay!
I enjoyed my experience at the Westin Ottawa thoroughly! I travelled for leisure on this occasion. Check-in was easy and fast. The Guest Service Agent was so pleasant and explained the difference between my current room type (Accessible King) vs. a standard King. Although I did not require the accessible, I did stick with the choice as she told me that it had wall to wall windows.. and she was RIGHT! It had a fantastic view of Parliament and the Rideau. The condition of the room was great, the TV channels were HD (unlike other hotels I have stayed at, with HD TV but not HD channels). The hotel was connected to the mall and that made it even better!
I really appreciated the politeness of everyone we encountered during our stay. Combined with an updated guestroom, easy parking, great location, you can't go wrong with this property! This is my new go-to hotel for Ottawa. Thank you Westin Ottawa!

During my stay, a gentleman named Raschid provided excellent service on two occasions in the restaurant. He was respectful, helpful and very pleasant. He exceeded my expectations in terms of table service.

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer 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.

Took consistently 25 minutes to get car from valet 3 times call plenty of time ahead
Elevators were under repair and line ups and time delays were extreme
I asked the store in the lobby for change on 20 to tip staff she replied only if I buy something
on morning of check out one person was working the front desk

Rated 5 out of 5 by maddy Classy and Accomodating!
Booked two nights here, however ended up doing them as separate reservations, when we checked in the front desk was more than accomodating to make our visit seamless ensuring we had the same room both nights at the prices I had booked for. Also, used the valet parking, and feeling a little embarrassed by the filthiness of my car, the Valet team took it upon themselves to return my car all washed! How is that for service! Also, our room was comfy and the bed was awesome! Hotel is attached to the Rideau Center, great shopping to boot, also the Market is right there..steps to amazing restaurants! I loved the Westin and Ottawa!

Love my bed and pillows....isn't that what everyone always says. that's what I say when I stay at the Westin!
Take advantage of not having room service for an exchange of $5.00 Breakfast voucher or 500 points! Come on, do you really use clean towels at home with every shower! Hang them up and re-use!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Carol52 This hotel is great for a lot of reasons, especially when you need access to the convention centre - being able to walk to Rideau Mall is a bonus.
Beautiful hotel and very convenient to shopping and conferences. Worked at the Ottawa Travel and Vacation show this pass weekent and really enjoyed staying at the Westin. However, i was very disappointed when I realized that my $40/day upgrade didn't give me anything extra. When I asked the front desk person she said it was for the view!!! Expensive view, but my co-worker also had the very same room with the same view and she didn't pay any extra.

Rated 5 out of 5 by zeek86 Great Stay
We stayed at the Westin last week and it was exceptional, it's the only place in Ottawa that we stay. We opted for a deluxe this time around and it was well worth the money. We had a fantastic view of Parliament, very spacious and the beds were very comfortable.
The staff was so friendly, always eager to help and there was not one moment when we weren't greeted with a smile or a hello. We also had the in-room breakfast for both our days there, it was delicious.
Keep up the great service, highly recommend.

Upgraded to a great "junior" suite. Spacious, interesting design & decor. Except for valet, who made no attempt to assist with luggage, excellent service. Very smooth check-in, check-out. Excellent location, easy walk to the market, Parliament and shopping complex connected to the Westin. Very slow elevators (under repair).
