Rated 5 out of 5 by 1Sillygirl This hotel has considerate staff
Being my birthday, we booked the corner room which was amazing. Incredible views!
We called and asked for more creamers for my coffee and received them promptly. My husband mentioned it was my birthday to the staff and she sent me a card and a small box of chocolates for my birthday! How considerate! Thank you Ms. Z. Williams for your thoughtfulness. We love staying in Ottawa at the Westin.

Katia at the front desk was awesome. The airline had lost my luggage, I had issues with the taxi cab but Katia was extremely friendly and provided me with extra bathroom items.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BrianCDecker turning good into great
escalators not working from lobby to 2nd floor compromised access to convention center
the bathroom in rm 1007 is well appointed, however it takes a contortionist to reach the toilet tissue; the slotted soap holder in the shower allowed my razor to slip between the metal rungs and break on the shower floor
one registration desk attendant asked me for $100 for a two hour late check out, while a second granted the request without fee
add ``convention center proximity`` to the list of reasons to recommend Westin

Rated 5 out of 5 by DawnandBoys Exceptional Service!!!
Booked at the Westin knowing it was an ideal location to show off our Nation's Capital to our Exchange Student from France. I requested a 'room with a view' to show off the canal / Parliament Buildings etc..The staff were able to accommodate my request and took it one step further by sending up a 'Welcome Package' with Perrier, chocolates, and a personal note welcoming our student to Canada! Impressive!!! ALL the staff were extremely pleasant. The 'extras' did not go unnoticed...(i.e. the umbrellas and the towel/water bottle upon return to the hotel after my son's 6:30 a.m. 5-k run with the friendly hotel guides!) 5-Star Service for sure!! Much appreciated...many thanks!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by PAAG This hotel was disappointing
On check in,I was not given the junior suite I had booked. Not all the guess had checked in, so my question is why did I have to wait until next morning to have a new room?
I have stayed at westin Ottawa several times in the past but now it seem that the client service is not as good as it was. The service at restaurant in paticular is poor.
Lastly, there is very limited clothes closet space in the junior suite; not acceptable.
Lots of dust under the bed. All in all, not a great experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jacquie31 Great location
Westin Ottawa is in a great location, just a few blocks from Parliament Hill, ByWard Market, the canal, shopping, restaurants... Rooms were nice - I would recommend the upgrade for a Parliament Hill view. Getting to the parking garage is a challenge, due to the limited amount of space at their front door. As coffee fanatics we found there was a very small amount of coffee available in our room. We called down to request more and it was always brought to our room within mere moments. Added bonus was that the concierge had sent us a welcome e-mail - we were able to use this to request additional coffee, to ask advice on hiring a taxi, and more. Service was always prompt and polite. My one suggestion is to make the SPG members feel a bit more special. The e-mail promos are great, but a few small treats during the stay would be fab. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by CanuckM Deluxe King Room With Problems-2116
The closet was half-size and far too small.for our coats--we kept them on the sofa. The thermostat was broken, so the room was either too hot or too cold as our choice was to either turn it on or off. This was reported after the first of a 3 night stay., after which the default was changed from too cold to too hot.
There were many TV channels, but neither BNN nor CNBC were present.
The room, itself, was bright and comfortable.
