This is my 3rd stay at this hotel. Its location is perfect, the rooms are very spacious, clean, and well decorated; truly 4 stars. The pool is very nice and kept clean; great for families! The breakfast buffet at the restaurant is really nice (although a bit expensive). The only "problem" (although minor) for this particular stay was that both... More

A great choice in downtown Ottawa. Just park your car and walk everywhere. First class workout equipment. Nice pool. Very kid friendly. We were there for the Easter Sunday brunch which was excellent. Lots of chocolate eggs for the kids. The rooms are spacious, clean,with lots of towels. Staff is friendly and helpful.

Great location linked with mall. Great gym, ok pool (could be upgraded). Comfy beds, nice rooms. Staff is great. Use the valet parking. Good coffee in room. Tv in room is great and high floors give good city views. Would recommend as a great option for ottawa.

The hotel is in a great downtown location and most of the cities attractions are a easy walk away. The hotel room was a typical Westin room and had no issues during my stay. The staff members provided professional and courtesy customer service at all times.

Have been to Ottawa a number of times for business but had never stayed at the Westin. The room was clean. Hotel is in a great location; close walking distance to Byward Market restaurants. Restaurant/bar in the hotel has a good selection a local beers and food was good. I plan to continue to stay there when in town.

We were here last week for a few nights. The location is ideal - right downtown, a block from Capital Hill. Easy to walk to many museums and galleries. Steps to lots of wonderful restaurants including Byward Market. The Rideau Centre Shopping Mall is attached to the hotel as well. The rooms were spacious and very well appointed. Really comfortable... More

Excellent stay, a busy central hotel, close to all downtown Ottawa has to offer. Great service with attentive staff. Rooms large and comfortable with supportive beds. I would recommend this hotel for those wanting to be in the heart of the action. Food quality was excellent as you would expect from a Westin

I've stayed here numerous occasions due to business in Ottawa and keep coming back. Clean, modern rooms and the very comfortable Westin Heavenly Bed. The parking valet staff are great and greet me by name. The gym is also excellent with lots of equipment and machines. As an SPG Platinum guest, I've also received numerous upgrades to their fabulous Junior... More

I stayed here recently while exhibiting at a trade show at the new Convention Centre, conveniently located next door and attached via a walkway. Check in was normal and efficient but I noticed an odour upon entering the room, as if an unwashed man had occupied it previously, or one who needed his clothes washed. As I was out for... More
