Although we live in Ottawa, we reserve a room at the Westin every year just to be able to take in the festivities knowing that my family has a comfortable room to return to. Peace of mind at an affordable price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by hotell14 A very expensive stay
A very nice hotel with great comfort of course cost more than other. But not to include internet in the fee, even for members seems very strange. I really do not think the stay was worth the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by peter12 This hotel has a very good location
The location and the fitness center is very good, the room I had was a bit worn, need some refreshing. The elevators gave a lot of waiting. The breakfast was also a very good experience, Overall a good hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Leslie12 Ideally located, excellent hotel
The Westin Ottawa is ideally located, connected to shopping and minutes away from major attractions. Staff and service are absolutely exceptional. Recently renovated rooms are pristine, with splendid views.

Simple things go much farther than when one tries too hard. This is what you can expect from a stay at the westin, comfort, relaxed atmosphere, and little to worry about. I have always enjoyed my stay here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RROO33RE Great staff
I was greeted by both Andrew and Marc as soon as I walked into the lobby. As usual, a friendly and warm welcome. They always make eye contact with a smile to whomever is waiting in line to check in. It is very evident that they enjoy what they do. Dan also is great at what he does and was off that day.
I went to the Daly's returant for breakfast. Shannon greeted me with a big smile and asked how my morning was going, and what area I wanted to be seated at. I sat in Porrans secetion. I started drinking my coffee however it wasn't as hot as I normaly like. Without me saying anything, Porran came back and chnaged my coffee cup and said here is a fresh pot because I know how hot your like your coffee. I was really amazed by how thoughtful and quick she was. I proceeded to the hot buffet and saw Angelica (chef) who was making multiple dishes. Right away she acknowdge me and said would like the ususal. I said yes, and then notice she had already started my breakfast because she had seen me walk in. These wonderful people are the reason of why I always choose this hotel. As a platinum memeber I usually receive good service when I stay at SPG hotels, however, The Westin Ottawa is by far the best hotel I have ever stayed at. Thank you very much everyone for making me feel at home each time I am in your hotel!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JR1961 Restaurant staff excellent
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.

Your hotel should become a school to teach staff on how to threat customers. To a person, they all went out of the way to make our stay most enjoyable. Special thanks to Marissa (sp) in the Daley Express

Rated 5 out of 5 by GRAND2014 Interesting Experience
Overall my experience with this hotel has been nice. The hotel personnel, from the front desk staff to cleaners, have been extremely friendly. Also, the location of this hotel is amazing. You are minutes away from the parliament hill, some good vibrant local bars, and of course literally seconds away from a shopping mall.
Two things I wish would have been different: 1) the elevator design is out of this world strange - you are asked to select which floor you wish to go prior to boarding the elevator - what if you change your mind after you get on it? what if you don't feel safe/comfortable (you can't get out on any other floor except for the one you have selected)? 2) I understand it is a big hotel and there are at least 2 conferences going on when i was there, but i didn't think consistently waiting for 40 minutes for things (e.g. slippers) to get delivered to my room was a reasonable. Also, when I asked for my room to be cleaned at 5pm (i don't know why it wasn't cleaned during the day), it took them at least an hour to respond.
Despite these minor imperfections, I would still recommend this property to others.

Internet was horrible. Called front desk, they sent me to helpline. Tech support admitted that the system was over burdened. Lost two hours of work producticity one night. Had to move to a coffee shop.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cary416 Good Quality; Premium Price
Facility is very nice. Rooms were comfortable and reasonably quiet. Location is close to airport and convenient to many dining options. Premium price, but not outrageous.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Rocco65 The room
Was quite uncomforable. Given that, with gold status, and having booked months in advance, I would have expected that my room would not have been given away because of my late arrival. Disappointing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by PC11 quiet stay even with a hotel full of grad kids
I was somewhat anxious at check-in about the noise level in the hotel because kids from a graduation were staying at the hotel. The front desk put us away from the students and we had a great stay.

Another great stay. The hotel is installing a new elevator system, not sure if it will end up being more efficient or not, elevators seemed slow to respond. Other than that, the stay was great.
