OTTAWA, ON -- (Marketwired) -- 05/30/14 -- The Ottawa Marriott Hotel, a luxurious hotel near downtown Ottawa, recently completed a multi-million dollar renovation that transformed it into a premier destination for both business and leisure travelers.
The renovations, which took place over three years, were completed in several phases, bringing major improvements to the hotel in downtown Ottawa.
The Great Room was renovated in 2010, and it's now an open, modern space that features comfortable seating, iMac workstations, and free wireless Internet access.
The hotel's stylish on-site restaurant, "spin" Kitchen & Bar, was completed in early 2011. Here, guests can enjoy wholesome comfort food and a drink at the bar while learning about the "spin" of the week, an edgy topic of conversation written by Canada's top journalists and political pundits.
The Ottawa Marriott Hotel has 25 meeting rooms and a total of 35,000 sq. ft. of modern meeting space in Ottawa, which was fully renovated in 2012. Host a memorable event in one of the newly renovated meeting rooms in Ottawa, like the elegant 6,365-square-foot Victoria Ballroom or Summit, a revolving room on the 29th floor with expansive views of downtown Ottawa.
The last phase of the renovations included a complete refurbishment to the 486 guest rooms, which were just completed this year. The spacious rooms and suites now feature stylish new carpets, window treatments, and lighting fixtures, as well as plush bedding, large work desks with ergonomic chairs, LCD TVs, coffee/tea service, complimentary standard Wi-Fi, and stunning views of downtown Ottawa and the Gatineau Hills. Concierge level guest rooms offer upgraded amenities, stylish contemporary décor, and access to a private concierge lounge, which was also recently updated.
Conveniently located near Parliament Hill, the Ottawa Marriott Hotel has a prime location just a short stroll from Rideau Canal, ByWard Market, Ottawa Convention Centre, and National Gallery of Canada. Guests can explore great museums like the Canadian Museum of Civilization and the Canadian Museum of Nature, learn about Canada's history at the Parliament of Canada, and ice skate on the Rideau Canal, the world's longest skating rink and a UNESCO World Heritage site.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
