Exceptional 10.0
Great stay
Great hotel location. Great view of parliament. Valet was good to offer directions to self-park lot but I used valet anyways. Staff was very friendly.
Greg, ca2 night trip
Good 6.0
Hotel was nice. Had a couple issues but staff tried to accommodate us for our troubles. Location is great, rooms are nice and clean. Only complaint was the pool was coolish and never warmed up enough to a consistently comfortable temperature. Other than that, lovely hotel.

Was charged again on my credit card by the hotel for the whole stay. They said it was an “authorized” payment.
ca2 night romance trip
Good 6.0
I booked a NYE stay at the Westin and paid for an upgraded “city view” room assuming that meant a West facing room, looking at downtown. I was offered a further room “upgrade” for a fee at check in. I declined. The “city view” was the back of the hotel with a view of the Byward Market. Parking was $30 in one of the Rideau Centre lots. It meant a lengthy tour through a maze of halls, the Rideau Centre and then finally to the Westin lobby. I was sweating by the time I arrived, lugging a heavy bag and wearing winter clothing. It seemed to be worse leaving as I had to ask for directions from reception who directed me to the unmoving escalator. Two flights of escalators plus countless other stairs and hallways and I found the parking garage. It was like an Escape Room. The room was attractive enough and bed quite comfortable however, the dirty and stained chair and shower/tub drain issue were off putting.

The rideau centre attached to the hotel is convenient. Starbucks, shoppers drug mart located within reach.

Beautiful hotel, very comfortable bed. Dust in the washroom, very dirty & stained chairs in the room. Did not even attempt to sit in them as they appeared to be so dirty! Very expensive valet.
