Ottawa Marriott Hotel
The Ottawa Marriott Hotel (formerly a Holiday Inn, then a Radisson Hotel) is a hotel located in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, on the north-west corner of the intersection of Queen Street and Kent Street. It was built by Campeau Corporation as part of the second phase of the Place de Ville complex. Upon its construction in 1971, it was the tallest building in Ottawa, but the title was short-lived when the neighboring Tower C was completed in 1972. As of 2013 it was the sixth tallest in Ottawa and eighth in the National Capital Region.
The Ottawa Marriott Hotel is located in downtown Ottawa and is walking distance from Parliament Hill, the Rideau Canal, the Shaw Centre and the National Gallery of Canada. The hotel comprises 489 guestrooms, 26,000 sq ft (2,400 m2) of meeting space, a fitness centre, indoor pool and children's activity area.
In 2010, the Ottawa Marriott underwent significant renovations to the main floor. Merlot Rooftop Grill closed and re-opened as Summit, a private event space. Summit remains the only revolving room in Ottawa, rotating at a rate of approximately one revolution per two hours. The main floor renovations included closing Cafe Toulouse, their street-level restaurant and re-opening as "spin" Kitchen & Bar.
