Before Round 4 - sights from atop the Ottawa Marriott

To give you a flavour of the Ottawa environs, these pictures were taken a few short minutes shortly before Round 4. The vantage point is the Rotunda, the top floor of the Ottawa Marriott, which includes a revolving restaurant and is the site of the 2007 Canadian Open.

The Ottawa Marriott is a major sponsor of the Canadian Open, having provided a fantastic venue at a fantastic rate.

Looking east to the Parliament Buildings

Looking south at the Supreme Court of Canada. On the other side of the Ottawa River is Gatineau, Quebec.

Looking west to the brand new Canadian War Museum. The festival tents to the left make up the site of the Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest, underway in Ottawa. But most important is the tournament being held in this hotel, more to come shortly...
