Excellent buffet breakfast that claimed to have the best bread in the city. They did! Modern rooms with very comfortable beds and perfect pillows. Parking lot is very confusing and you can easily scratch your car unless very careful. It is multi-level and the hotel entrance is down 3 and to the back right. It took me 3-stays to figure this out. Gym is small but gets the job done. Get an upper floor until the renovations are completed. It will be beautiful but is noisy at the moment.
staff were friendly. the room was clean. Wifi worked fine. there was renovation going on and lobby floor is confused but the room was quiet.
Cleanliness, staff, location was fine since I like to walk. The pool was nice. Parking price was not listed. Cost $23/day! No mention of that in the add. Also breakfast was a straight $19/person. Too much!
Close to convention center, shopping & Byswater (Bayswater?) restaurant area. Not far from Chateau Laurier or Capital Hill. Clean rooms. Friendly staff at front desk. Cool/funky little restaurant/cafe area on the first floor, which filled up at night. Common areas bright and nicely decorated, with lots of computers for general use. Room was small but functional and clean. Gym was a little disappointing, but had treadmills eliptical and some weight machines. It was fine for a short stay, but not much more. Nearby construction makes for some unattractive views, but it's not noisy or bothersome otherwise. Overall, I was happy with my selection for the price I paid.
Walking distance to Parliament Bldgs and Byward Market. Construction across the street and noise.
Good location for conferences - walking distance from convention center and shopping. Clean room and excellent staff. Room was directly above the garbage dumpsters, so very early every morning was rudely woken up by garbage trucks slamming dumpsters. I wouldn't normally mention this, but I specifically asked for a room in a quiet area. The dining option has a very limited menu and has a high cost compared to other options for the area.
Great lobby restaurant. Different twist on flavour with friendly staff
The hotel restaurant was excellent. The view from the room was depressing. The first one they offered looked upon a parking lot, the next one, which was the only other possibility, upon a construction site filled with debris. The reception desk personnel did not speak French. The bar decoration was not at all like the one posted on Kayak.
the clean up job daily is very good they are renovating...
The room was very spacious, with all the amenites I would have wanted. Would like to try the restaurant on my next stay. Staff was very friendly and efficient. Could not figure out how to get the mini-fridge turned on, but by the time I realized there was one, was sort of too late to come in handy. Oh yes, and the charge for in-room movie was outrageous, almost $16.00.
Pillows were terrible. Ice machine did not work. Booked a hotel with a pool and it was not available to be used.
This hotel is in a great location. And walking distance to most attractions. Great bar, Wifi would drop out every now and again.
Comfortable clean room. Friendly,helpful staff at Registration desk. Good ,prompt room food service. Friendly ,considerate room cleaning services.Clean air. Comfortable room temperature. Excellent food and service in both eating areas. Absolutely nothing. Beyond expectations.
Quality everything - un beatable location having to pay for internet
Beautiful hotel; comfortable room; excellent location. Will definitely return.
Classic beautiful Hotel. Friendly Staff, especially the health club receptionist, who was great! Too old. Need refurbishing. Stained carpets, cracked ceilings, too many extension cords. Position of coffee maker hard to get to which makes making that morning cup a great hassle. Toilet we had in our bathroom was so close to the wall and door is in the way.
Toured both museums, Went to ByWard market, hiked , watched changing of the guard, shopped, ate well.
Magnificent hotel and piece of Canadian history. Tremendous building Although an extremely expensive proposition, rooms/some older pieces within them need to be restored or refreshed. A little old looking.
Pay extra for deluxe corner room. Worth it.
Great location right in the heart of Downtown Ottawa, really close to a lot of the sites. Staff is informed and professional, and the facilities (especially the pool) are world class. Loved it here.
The location and history of this hotel left nothing to be desired. Luxurious hotel with friendly staff They charge you for everything - They wanted me to pay .$50 a minute for the business center! If you come to this hotel and need to do work, bring your own laptop and be prepared to pay for the internet.
awesome! clean and friendly. perfect location.
Not only was the lobby staff friendly and engaging, they were extra attentive. The room with the Parliament view was fantastic and no details were overlooked -- linens, towels, cleanliness. Could not have done better for reasonable price or for greater cost.
Helpful staff, clean room, very comfortable, good location but a little hard to reach due to current construction. Close to Byward market, which we loved for browsing, shopping and eating. Concierge was extremely helpful with directions for getting to and around Montreal, our next stop.
I had an amazing view on the 2 most historic sites in Ottawa, the parliament and the chateau laurier...that alone was worth the cost It is an average hotel and rather expensive, if I had a room facing the backyard it would have been very disapointing. No free internet which is really bad
They oversold the rooms. They did not have a room for me I had to sleep on a cot in a conference room!
Staff,location Kids running around hote,l screaming well after 1100pm ,older hotel,needs updated.
An excellent welcome, and room explanation etc. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Food excellent and good value. Not having beauty treatments available in situ-i.e. facials.
We had an excellent experience at the Westin Ottawa. Our room was on the 21st floor overlooking the Parliament buildings - it couldn't have been better. The room was spacious and well-designed. We would definitely return here.
Excellent bed, excellent location. It is walking distance to everything. Staff are very friendly and provide excellent service!
central position the filthy scum that surrounded the swimming and jakuzzi pools
The comfort very good
We loved everything!!! it was right in the center of everything, so walking was perfect. there was nothing we didn't like.
We went to the byward market and to the parliament buildings and walked along the canal.We also walked Sparks Street, shopped in the Rideau Center. Everything we did was within walking distance from the hotel.The staff were helpful. We were on the 22 floor, had amazing views.
on top of the events
Great location and the 2 been suite was the perfect size for us and the price we paid. Service was great. It was very busy but that showed the quality of the hotel, people were there for everything: family, sports teams, young friends. We were treated well and had a good stay! Some of our cups had lipstick stains on them and the hottub (part of the reason we decided on the hotel) was out of order but that's about it.
space and facilities,plus convenience to city centre
Les Suites is wonderful if you have young children. The bedroom suite allows you to put your children to bed and adults can continue to enjoy their evening. The fully equipped kitchen is fantastic, children can have their regular breakfast etc. which helps with routine. Very close to market, shopping and tourist attractions. This is our second stay at the hotel and have been very pleased both visits. Parking is a challenge. Very limited parking spots and if you drive a van or larger vehicle, may available spots are too small.
My family and I stayed at Les Suites for nine days and I loved that the suite was equipped with everything and there was lots of storage!!!!!! I could wash and dry our clothes, cook a meal when I felt like or bring home left overs and heat it up! The rooms are very spacious and were always clean and fresh, and the staff were very discreet, not invading your privacy. They were also very courteous when you met them in the hallways and elevators. The location of the hotel is ideal, walking distance to the mall and downtown Ottawa. I felt comfortable and at home. I would definitely be staying at Les Suites on my next visit to Canada.
It's location is perfect to access shopping and tourist attractions. Parking is a plus in this downtown location. Pool, workout area was quite small.
I liked the closeness to the attractions and to the market area.Having cooking facilities is a definite asset for extended stays The pet policy of this hotel where only the premium rooms are pet free is detremental to my staying there again. With alergies and not knowing beforehand the pets may have been in the room could cause serious health risks to you custtomers,
They had over booked, so we didn't get the premium sweet that we had paid for. They made an error when checking us in giving us a room that was already occupied, adding a good 30 minutes to our wait to get into a room. Usually you can chalk that up to a good story, but we had an ice cream cake that melted while we waited. We had hoped to use that time to decorate the room for a surprise party.
2 bathrooms, convenience of the kitchen, fitness room and pool, taxi available The dish washer did not do a very good job cleaning the dishes (room 1509)
Friendly staff, excellent bedrooms, goof overall quality
The front desk staff were friendly, courteous and helpful also with info about surrounding points of interest. Great overflow parking solution.
Very friendly staff, including suggestions for places to eat, help with parking and just overall making us feel welcome. Pool and gym had to be accessed via lobby. Made it a tad uncomfortable to walk to pool in bathing suit passing through common area.
Liked the Bistro. Great for breakfast. Bed and room very comfortable!
Very interesting & fun experience. Great location within easy walking distance to Parliament, museums, shopping, great restaurants. Eerily interesting, it feels like a jail, & the history is rather creepy, but great use for an awesome historic building. Staff was excellent, breakfast good, people from all over the world. I came for one night, stayed for two!
What a wonderful experience! Sleeping in a REAL JAIL for three days was something I won't ever forget! It was so amazing to see how prisoners lived prior to 1970 in the Canadian Penal system. Gosh, there isn't much you can say negativity about this place -- except, perhaps, it would have been nice to have two pillows instead of one -- but it's JAIL, remember!?! :-)
