Afternoon Tea
Reviewed 22 hours ago

Had made reservations for an afternoon tea in this historical place. However it cannot compare to the best service and ambience that we enjoyed in Fairmont Victoria. I still would suggest trying them for the experience.

Great luxury hotel

This is a perfect place to stay to make your visit memorable. My daughter loved the idea of staying at the castle 😊 Rooms are really nice, food is good quality and salt water pool is a rare find.
The location is ideal as it is 5 min walk to Parliament, restaurants and nice park.
As an idea for improvement, I would suggest to add more lounge chairs in pool area.

Great location and spacious room

I was in Ottawa for a conference and stayed at the Westin for 2 nights. My room was clean and spacious with a view of downtown. It's nice to have a good combination of pillows to choose from for a comfortable nights sleep. I had an early return flight and it would have been nice to self checkout via the TV - for whatever reason this was not working and I checked out at the front desk without an issue.

The Westin is centrally located and only a short walk to the parliament buildings, war memorial, rideau canal, shopping, etc. I didn't get a chance to try any of the food at the Westin, as my meals were arranged at other conference venues.

Do not drive here!

The hotel only offers valet parking now and it is a chaos to retrieve the car. We were told it will take 35 min to get the car and at the 35 min mark we checked again and was told it’s 4 cars away from ours! Now it’s been an hour and we are still waiting. Our number didn’t even appear on the system screen. This is a complete waste of time and as a pregnant mother with young child, this is not the kind of thing I am expecting!

Excellent. if you like luxury and service, Book the Gold floor. The staff are expecting you. There is always food, always help and twice per day room cleaning service. I am always in awe of the rich curtains in the room
