    Beautiful views, graceless, awful service

    We worked with Allison to plan our wedding last fall for about 80 people. While the planning part went reasonably ok, although Allison and her team were not great about responding quickly, and the day itself was incredibly stressful for me as the bride. Nobody greeted me when I arrived, and our check-in took over an hour due to long lines and screw-ups with our reservations. The day of my wedding, I waited over an hour for someone to help me move my bags to the suite, and eventually ended up just doing it myself. There were no greeters downstairs, and the hotel was very crowded, and some guests waited over 20 minutes for an elevator and actually missed the ceremony. The actual wedding itself was fine, but I was incredibly stressed, and did not enjoy it as much I should have, given the significance of the day and how much was spent. My brother's wedding at the Westin Grand Cayman was a completely different experience, with a lot of attention to detail and care to make sure that everything was as stress-free as possible. At other weddings, I have seen an elevator actually reserved for the few minutes before the ceremony if there are crowds. Allison and her staff were always harried and made me feel like I was an extra thing on their list. I met with their manager Peer-Fritz to discuss my disappointment and concerns the next day, and other than repeating "feedback is a gift" like a mantra and promising to get back to me with what he was going to do better, nothing happened. Go anywhere else in Ottawa, unless you like being treated badly while paying for it. This is a shame because the renovations are beautiful, and the new 22 ballroom's views are spectacular.
