Rated 5 out of 5 by bronbird Central Ottawa Happiness
Staying at the Ottawa Westin was a great decision for our family. The hotel is central to everything and an ideal location. The staff were very friendly and all our needs were met. We received a corner room which allowed us views down Sussex Drive and across to Parliament Hill. Couldn't ask for more. In addition, the easy access to the Rideau Centre allowed us to go shopping. The salt water pool provided another opportunity for relaxation after a day at the museums. If you want to get around without a car - this is definitely your destination.

Rated 2 out of 5 by NKD75 Cleanliness is lacking
Although the hotel has an ideal location and our rooms had fabulous views, the hotel really needs a facelift. The carpet in the corridor looks ancient and filthy as does the upholstery on the sofa and chairs in the rooms. So dirty that I didn't let anyone sit on them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by DLB18 Comfortable, great location. Elevators slow with volume
Comfortable room. Access to gym 24hr. Pool + hot tub 6:30-10pm.
With large numbers of guests, the computer assisted elevators were unable to determine how many would get on the elevator for a single floor as floors were not pressed but extra people got on. That was frustrating!
As the elevators filled up, i had to press and wait for 3 elevators more than once!!
Downtown location great for Ottawa sites and cycling on the canal.

Your hotel remains my go to hotel in Ottawa. It's consistently superior room comfort and hotel service (the front desk and the car valet in particular) add to its location being the most convenient in the city

Rated 5 out of 5 by Greg97 SPG Recognition at its Best
The SPG recognition experience starts the minute you arrive at the Westin Ottawa's front door and are greeted by the friendly and helpful bell staff, continues to the Front Desk services for check-in, and throughout your stay with excellent service and food at Daly's, or if you choose room service. The fitness center is one of the largest and best equipped and maintained that I have encountered in my travels. I am a Road Warrior, and the Westin Ottawa continues to make that road just a little more bearable

Rated 5 out of 5 by DaveAndLiz Our dream wedding at The Westin Ottawa
We had our wedding at the Westin in October 2014 and could not have imagined how incredible it would be. Tia was working with us from the very first day, and at times we felt like she may actually officiate the service just to ensure it was perfect. Every detail was looked after, things we'd never have thought to ask for were already in order before we realized we'd need them. Just over a hundred of our closest friends and family were waited on like they were royalty. The chef prepared an incredible menu, the servers were amazing, and our stay at the hotel was perfect. The only confusing part for our guests was working the elevators, but admittedly, they seem to work better than regular ones, once you figure out how they work. If you want a great escape for the weekend, or you'd like to spend a few days with your entire family getting married, the Westin Ottawa is a great place to do it, and Tia and her team are fantastic.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nbknbk I need my money back
I visited the shore club resturant for my birthday . I booked before 2 weeks ago via internet . When we arrived at 7 pm we waited 17 min to be seated, then we set on the worst table in resturant , i asked the manager to change the table , he said we cant do any thing this right now. If you like wait 30 min and i will move you some where else, that very bad and i really disappointed from this resturant how they deal with customers. I paid 165$ which is not bad but they should respect private ocations. I need my money back or i need speacial arrangment for next visit

Rated 1 out of 5 by UnsatisfactoryWestin Nickel & Dime Experience
This has been the worst Westin I have stayed in. I am a gold Member and expect some benefits - but even non-gold members should be disappointed with these problems.
- Local and 1-800 calls - Free? NO - $1.77 + $.22 tax = $1.99 per call
- Paper delivered to door? NO - twice in 5 mornings there was some by the elevator I had to go to the lobby to get a paper - when I asked about this at the Gold desk - I was told they stopped delivering to room doors awhile ago - but they could add this to my profile - the problem is my profile already had this listed.
Gold member late check out - I asked for late check out - calling from a Gold member floor - and was told I had to call back on the day of check out because they weren't sure of the availability - I reminded them I was a gold member - they apologized and gave me late check out - as I am guaranteed;
- in room Television - an ancient old Philips with crappy remote - took over an hour to get the remote delivered when the first one died and I had to call to remind them.
- Golf channel listed in Westin "Stay Well: Directory as ch 78 - it does not work - I called the front desk because this was Master's Week - the suggestion was "try the sports channel"!
- When my remote was not working I saw an ad on the initial channel about downloading an ap to control the tv - I did this but needed a code to activate the ap - I called the front desk and they had no idea what I was talking about - they called back and said this service was not offered in this Westin;
- a cordless phone in the room - the battery didn't hold a charge;
- a weight room - yes but down a grungy hallway and an even older tv that got fewer channels than the room and didn't even get the sports channel and with some odd music piped in that had no volume control to turn it off or even down.
- a business centre - yes, but you have to swipe a credit card and are charged $5.95 for maximum 15 minutes to even do a search then if you want to print a boarding pass - that's another $1.00 per page!! Unbelievable.
I normally love the Westin - I am coming back to Ottawa for 10 days in May and it won't be to the Ottawa Westin - I would recommend you try another hotel brand as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Flynner Great hôtel bad policy
My last stay march 22 to 24 was a bad experience .I am a long time client and preferred guest member at the westin.On that last trip to Ottawa I left my wallet on the kitchen table at home.I noticed the situation too late I was almost in Ottawa.After explaining my situation and giving the clerk my Amex card info in full I was refused the room under my name.I was given access only if a credit card was swipped.Wow for helping a valued customer feel good about is business choice for the last 15years.I know well you will understand my decision to stay somewhere else for my next business and family trips to Ottawa!!

Couple of things I would like to see changed.. I don't like paper cups in room,..... equally bad was the starbuck coffee!....
Also, you should make available the cable channel which has the largest viewing worldwide!....... Fox cable !!
Your staff were pleasant and helpful.
