Rated 3 stars and this is accurate, very clean, updated rooms, nice roomy modern bathrooms. Clean and quiet. The hotel staff were very helpful as well. The only knock is it is right on Ouellette, and there is no parking unless you park at the hotel. Parking is $15.00, plus HST. Very near Ceasars Windsor and Tunnel BBQ, in fact... More

My husband and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Downtown Windsor during the Senior games. We were very impressed with the service we received, the staff went above and beyond their requirements to accommodate our needs. The room was comfortable and quiet. Thank you .

I guess I have gotten spoiled staying up the street at the Casino for most of my visits to Windsor. Compared to the other hotels I have stayed at in the area I found this one to be overpriced with small rooms. When I arrived at the property to check in there were only three parking spots by the entrance.... More

Stayed at this hotel as I was in the City with another couple and my wife. I have stayed at this hotel before and liked my previous experience where this one was just average.

We went to Windsor to celebrate my birthday and the Holiday Inn is in the perfect location downtown. The room was clean and comfortable. We thought it would be noisy with all the 20 somethings having a party. We were put in the back corner with a view of the border crossing and Ouellette Ave. It was very quiet. The... More

We stayed only for one night, but we had a great time at this hotel. Our window was looking out the back of the hotel, so not right onto the street but what we figured was the exit of the Detroit Windsor Tunnel. We didn't find it noisy and the room itself was very comfortable, roomy and well-equipped. The service... More

The Holiday Inn has an ideal location for Windsor. It's close to restaurants, the casino, and boarder. The service was good as well. The rooms are ok, but a little dated and could be a bit cleaner. The connecting restaurant serves a decent breakfast, but isn't included. Parking is $12 on the roof of the hotel.

I stayed here for 4 nights while attending a confrence at the Cesars palace casino. The hotel was in a great spot (7 min walk to the casino) with clean rooms and friendly staff. What else could you ask for?

This hotel was excellent in every way, especially the staff, very friendly and helpful. The bathrooms a bit small, easy access from the tunnel, the waterfront is beautiful and the shopping was great. A nice weekend getaway! We will be back!

Lobby was nice. Front desk was very helpful and efficient. Great location and easy to get to.
