Appointment at 9:30 in the morning me on H1 and my wife who is on H4 EAD went to consulate at 9:10 AM, it is not really cold but VISA tension made us really damn cold, this is not our  first stamping in Canada we been to Toronto in December 2012 and successfully got the passports back in 3 days, anyways coming back to present.  Once you enter the main door the lady who is before security check is very strict and talk very strongly and check everything I mean really everything including your status in Canada and Canadian VISA Stamping and your passports especially photos , back ground must be white not even lite of any color, fortunately my wife brought another set of photos which she accepted and I took a deep breath. Finally security check cleared ( Here another issue only transparent and plastic bags are allowed strictly no leather or dark colored bags at security and this checks also done. Finally entered in lions den where we seen 2 counters where 2 serious officers asking questions at the corner of the room before that there are 4 counters but only 2 opened counter no 6 and 7 where they check your documents and take your fingerprints put stickers on your passport, while giving the finger prints I hared the lady VISA Officer saying to Indian family sorry I can not approve your VISA and certainly you can apply again if your situation changes , they are requesting her please consider but she refused and stopped talking to them later, my heart beat goes like anything after this. After finger printing then asked me to wait in the line where is actual interview line and suddenly we seen there is nobody and of course we are the next directly walk to counters and that female officer looking at us very seriously but did not called us yet, but luckily , another officer walked in to the counter and called us first where I took another deep breath that I am not going to her , finally the interview started here it goes

Over all process took not even 30 minutes as we did not take any electronics, not even a watch but i think we have finished in 20 minutes from the minute we reach the embassy. And strictly no car parking near the embassy so always better take a motel near the consulate , we stayed at CAPITAL HILLS HOTEL and SUITES which is less than 7 minutes of walking from consulate. And the hotel we booked in Expedia for just $80 and car parking fee is $20/night . I believe like it is not too bad. 

Just reached back to motel and seen the status is  " administrative processing " which is usual for 1 day. 

If any doubts please ask me I do not have any problem to share my experiences in ottawa,
