I regret I cannot remember the name of the young man (Front Desk guest rep) who assisted me in making additional reservation for a lengthy stay in July. My interaction with him was roughly 6pm on 22/June. Young man was very professional, friendly, went beyond the extra mile to accommodate my requests and make me feel valued. Because of the... More

The staff were amazing. Our room attendants made sure the room was spotless and the staff at the front desk and concierge were very helpful. We came to Ottawa for our 15th wedding anniversary and mentioned this to Valerie at the front desk. On returning to our room on the Friday we found a bottle of champagne, chocolate covered strawberries... More

I have been working in Ottawa for the past several months and have to say that the staff of the Westin Ottawa always makes it better with their personal touch at every level. First there is the Door Staff, led by Ivano, who always greets us with a smile and some friendly banter, paricularly during hockey season. Then there is... More

Val was so welcoming and friendly, letting me know about the Sunday late check out option and helping me find places to eat and see art. Also, when I checked out and asked for pro-rating of my wifi access fee for the last few hours, the person discounted the whole day's fee. Most everyone was super friendly and made me... More

I went for my birthday. I received a room upgrade, was on a SPG preferred floor, had a fantastic view of the city, and a free birthday dessert appeared in my room :) Also, the elevators were incredibly fast - a small thing, but it makes a difference! We loved swimming in the pool, too!

We had a 16th floor room. Amazing view of the parliment and Chateau. The room was really nice as well. Unfortunately the pool didn't live up the to standards of the rest of the hotel. Conveniently located.

Food options are great at the meetings, and the location of the hotel near the Bytown Market is excellent. Every time I have driven on for a conference, however, I have had a terrible time... More
