Sheraton Ottawa Hotel - Location

Downtown Ottawa is within easy reach of the Sheraton Ottawa Hotel. In May, the start and finish lines for the Ottawa Marathon races is 800 metres away.

In winter, it’s just a 10-minute walk to the Rideau Canal. What’s more, a multitude of restaurants are close by, and the Rideau Centre shopping mall is near.

Sheraton Ottawa Hotel - Registration

A bilingual agent was waiting for me at reception. She thanked me for my Platinum status and explained the benefits I had obtained during my stay.

The lounge for high-status Marriott Bonvoy Elite members is open all weekend. However, meals are best enjoyed in restaurants.

I received a coupon for free breakfast and a $10 credit at the restaurant or in the hotel mini-convenience store.

Sheraton Ottawa Hotel - Rooms

The Sheraton Ottawa Hotel has 18 floors and my room was on the 16th.

It had 1 very comfortable king-size bed, a desk, a TV, a mini-refrigerator and an armchair with footrest.

On the desk, there were USB sockets and a coffee maker. The safe was hidden in one of the 2 night tables.

The wardrobe at the entrance contained a robe.

In shades of beige and brown, the bathroom was functional.

Sheraton Ottawa Hotel - Restaurants

During my stay, the kitchen was being renovated. The two restaurants are on the first floor of the hotel and share mealtimes:

  • Carleton Grill: For buffet-style continental breakfast. Open from 06:30 to 10:30.
  • Salon Sasha: Its opening hours are from 4:30 pm to 10:00 pm, and its meal offer is limited due to the reconstruction of its kitchen. The menu consists of soup, a few salads, a panini and a sandwich, with dessert.

Sheraton Ottawa Hotel - Other services

Sheraton Ottawa Hotel - Pool

There is a saltwater pool, but it was closed for repairs during my stay.

Sheraton Ottawa Hotel - Lounge

The Sheraton Ottawa’s large lounge is on the 18th floor, on the same floor as the Penthouses. We have to take the elevator to the 17th floor and then, when the doors open, climb the stairs in front of us. The salon is open throughout the week, including weekends.

During the kitchen renovations, the food offering is basic in the living room. It consists of sweet and salty snacks. Hot and cold drinks are available on a self-service basis. The view and light from the atrium are superb.

Elite Platinum, Titanium and Ambassador members and their guests enjoy a complimentary buffet-style breakfast at the Carleton Grill restaurant.

Then, throughout the evening, hors d’oeuvres and light bites are available in Salon Sasha for Elite members (Platinum and above).

Sheraton Ottawa Hotel - Gym

The fitness room is small but offers a variety of machines and weights.

Sheraton Ottawa Hotel - My overall impression

The Sheraton Ottawa Hotel is a no-frills hotel that offers a good basic stay. Customer service is excellent and the location is perfect.

However, its ubiquitous tones of beige and brown, combined with installations from another era, give an overall sense of sadness. The hotel could do with a bit more atmosphere and hopefully, with the current renovations, a dose of contemporary decor.
