This is our favorite hotel to stay in when in Windsor mainly because of the beautiful views of Detroit landscape and Detroit River. It is so close to the Casino and the beautiful Riverwalk. The king size room faced over the river and it was comfortable and clean and roomy. The wonderful full breakfast that is complimentary was delicious. The...

Liked my stay with BW. The staff were really friendly especially one in the bar. She was so funny and it would make you sit in the bar much longer than you originally planned. Free breakfast was decent, room was clean. Most rooms have wonderful view of the river, Ambassador bridge and Downtown Detroit. I will recommend it to anyone...

Stayed here on a Thursday night after a concert. Check in was friendly, fast and efficient. Parking in the garage behind the hotel across the street was convenient. We had a king bed room, which was very spacious, clean and well decorated. Our room view was downriver looking at the bridge, and possible to look as far east as Cobo....

Would never go back, the employees issued a key to my room and a random couple had access to my room for over 24 hours. Essentials could have been taken, security put at risk, safety was a massive concern. Sad, I do not recommend.

Room was perfect! All employees were friendly and helpful! Especially the awesome lady working at the bar! Gave me plenty of choices of what she thought I'd like cuz I'm such a picky drinker! The parking was a bit complicated at first and I didn't realize we'd have to pay for it, but that's the only flaw I've found. I...

We go to Windsor every year in may for a Golf and getaway weekend. In previous years the hotel had a Hot Tub and it used to be awesome. Since Best Western took over they cemented over the hot tub and made that area into another poolside area with lounge chairs like they have around the other sides of the...

Excellent Service. Employees are kind and cordial. Fairly decent breakfast and close to downtown and nice view from the room. I would highly recommend. I will always return if I am sent again by my company.

Stayed here and the place was as I had hoped. The room looked like this website showed it, even the view of the Detroit skyline! The room was clean and put together well. Beds were comfortable. The price was great. Booked straight from website and their prices matched all the value booking sites. We did notice that some nefarious previous...
