    The Westin Ottawa, Ottawa, Canada
    Westin Hotel
    The downtown Ottawa Westin hotel is always so nice to stay at. As usual, all of the staff were remarkable professional, efficient, kind and helpful. The hotel is up to date and very comfortable. Staying there is a real treat for us. The location can not be beat no matter what your reason for being in Ottawa is. To have a room facing the parliament is breathtaking. I rarely write reviews, but this is one I had to as the Westin is 5 stars and treats my husband and I as well as our teen daughters so well.
