I'm here right now actually, and I have to say my family is very pleased. The front desk was very friendly upon arrival, the rooms are larger than we expected and very clean. We booked last minute and didn't know what to expect, especially since we stayed at the Fairmont chateau hotel last year ( this year we booked too... More

This hotel is very central, close to Parliament buildings and next to the Byward market where there are numerous restaurants and bars. Check-in was fast, staff friendly and the room was spacious and extremely clean. However, there were a number of things which disappointed me with this hotel. Free internet was only available in the Lobby but you had to... More

Great front of house staff. Very attentive and courteous to all details. Only complaint was the noise in the hallway in the morning. I don't mean doors closing but rather people just being too loud. Rooms were very clean. I would recommend for sure. Thanks

We took our grandson to Ottawa and stayed at the Westin to celebrate his 13th birthday. They gave us a free room upgrade, and it was a great space. They also surprised him with a hand made and personalized birthday card, along with a dessert delivered to our room. Nice touch! The pool is salt water, which we love. The... More

Overall it was okay, the location was good but everything else was average. The view was great since you could basically see all of the landmarks, but I was not a fan of the bathroom "doors." It was not an actual door it was a sliding thing which was hard to lock at some moments.
