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

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. :)

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!!

I was shocked at how stark a contrast there was between my stay this week and my stay only one week prior. For this stay, I was not given a room on an SPG floor (even though I was later told that these floors were wide open and unbooked). I paid $23 a day less for what I assumed was being ten floors lower in the hotel. On the second day I discovered that I had been put in the "green initiative" which denied me any service to my room not specifically requested, I immediately asked to be removed from said initiative. I had to ask to be removed from this program EVERY DAY.
SO, for $23 less per day I lost:
Turn down service (never received without asking)
Daily coffee in room
Towel and Linen refresh
Again, these are things I had to call and ask for every day.
I am not impressed, and will be going out of my way to avoid the Westin in Ottawa from now on.

The Weston Hotel is always a pleasure to stay at. The Front Desk Personnel are always pleasant and very professional. In their manner.
