This hotel is right next to the Ferry to Toronto Island and by the harbour area. It's got the strangest entrance of any hotel I've been to (it's like a parking lot - entrance is up a bunch of stairs) but otherwise service is terrific. The pool and exercise room are outstanding with great views. The rooms are excellent with... More

Corner room with a stunning view of the harbour and the street below. Stayed in the north tower. Very clean and pleasantly decorated room, the only complaint was the loud airconditioner. Hotel is close to Yonge St therefore within walking distance to shopping and great restaurants. Bed was super comfortable!

Went there on a convention. I figured that a Westin, with positive evals in different forums should be a far choice. I was wrong. Reception is dated, it reminded me of a 80's Vegas hotel. Needs renovations. The staff was nice, but sometimes confusing specially bellboys. The room was large and had a great lake view. Again dated and needing... More

The hotel is located in a perfect location right on the harbour. Definitely get a room with a view overlooking the harbour. The hotel is huge as its part of a big conference centre so it is extremely busy. The staff are incredibly helpful and nice. Within walking distance to downtown and the cn tower. But the view is amazing... More

We visited this hotel 15 years ago and decided to use it again on this trip. We weren't disappointed. The room was very large and had a great view of Lake Ontario. If on holiday this view is a must. The bed was really "heavenly". The staff were great especially on concierge who sorted us out a ride to the... More

We booked a theatre/dinner/hotel package in Toronto, and chose to upgrade the room for $50. This landed us in a stunning suite on the top floor of the hotel. Excellent everything including a lake view where we could watch the ferries, sailboats, and airplanes!

We have stayed at The Westin Harbour Castle several times and been happy with our stay. We enjoyed the view from our hotel window watching over lake Ontario. We would recommend the Westin Harbour Castle to anyone going to a concert at the Air Canada Centre as it is really convenient and close by. Also close by are the The... More

Stayed at this hotel in August for 5 nights. Very nice hotel, very grand. Down side was the length of time to check in. Only 2 people on check in for the length of queue was very bad. After travelling 8 and a half hours then to wait for ever to be checked in, not a good start. Room was... More

The highlight of the hotel is the location and friendly staff. The lobby restaurant/bar was also quite good and convenient. This is a large convention style hotel and the rooms could use some updating, but my room was large with a nice lake view, so no serious complaints.

We spent a week at this hotel in the summer and our suite had breathtaking views of Lake Ontario and Centre Island. The hotel is located in a perfect spot for nice long leasurely walks along the lakeshore with lots of restaurants to choose from. The staff were very friendly too.

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
