Great views and location! The Pedway entrance from the parking lot entrance is a little sketchy. Enjoyed a walk along the water and the easy access to entertainment and restaurants. The rooms are very well appointed and clean. No hot tub, this is a feature that should be considered at some point. The breakfast area is very spacious and a... More

I stayed here for one night last year when this was known as the Waterfront Hotel. As the name states, it is right on Riverside drive with great views of the river and the Detroit Skyline. The location was great for my purposes, and my room was clean and the newer bed and bedding was comfortable, though the other furnishings... More

The Waterfront is very convenient for a wedding or event at the Centre of the Arts connected to the hotel. No need to even check a coat. The view is outstandingt of Detroit River, Detroit skyline, Belle Isle and the riverfront. Staff is helpful with kind words and smiles. Breakfast buffet was substantial so you won't leave hungry.

Hotel is in a nice location with a good view. The room was clean and the furnishing comfortable. The location is close (800m) from the Windsor Casino and there are good restaurants close by. I will definitely stay here again on my next business trip to Windsor

Overpriced for this hotel given the overall quality of the interior, the "full" breakfast (which was an overstatement) plus paid parking as an extra. Access for registration not that easy what with a non-operating front door and barely room for two cars up-front.

The hotel is close to numerous bars and restaurants and only a couple blocks to the casino. The rooms are large and spacious. My room had a king size bed and faced the river. The rooms were clean and the free breakfest buffet was an added bonus. Interaction with the staff was limited but everyone seemed happy and helpful. I... More

The Best Western Plus Waterfront is situated in downtown Windsor, close to several restaurants and a liquor store. My room (King bed, single) offered good, relaxing views of the river and the Detroit skyline. The room was well-appointed and modern and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel's front desk staff were responsive and courteous. The complementary breakfast was good... More

Excellent riverfront view, comfortable rooms, activities within walking distance, friendly and helpful staff. Excellent restaurants nearby ( the Keg Steakhouse and Bar , one short block away, had excellent food and atmosphere). Casino Windsor and its entertainment venue, The Coliseum, is approximately a short 5 blocks away. Other, top notch, local acts in the casino.

Good hotel. Good service. Great view of Detroit and the river on the waterfront side. Closely located to the COBO centre, bus station and several great restaurants. Comfortable beds. However what doesn't make this a GREAT hotel: 1- Bad cable connection. Please switch to satellite TV with numerous channels where movies can also be ordered. Basically, join the 21st century....

Hotel was very clean, staff was excellent,, only disappointment was that there wasn't an actual restaurant at the hotel. They did have a continental breakfast that was your typical breakfast, I am not a huge fan of these breakfasts
