My three girlfriends and I from Toronto stayed here over memorial day weekend for the Movement festival. We scored an amazing deal on Hotwire. For four nights, we had a spacious room for four girls with two very comfy beds, a couch, flat screen, high ceilings, two HUGE windows with an amazing view of the riverfront. Room 417 was the...

I stayed at this hotel at the recommendation of a business colleague, against the advice of other travelers, and quickly regretted this decision. Roberts Riverwalk barely meets the minimum functions of a hotel--the front desk was not able to manage the reservation and we had trouble finding someone to assist us in getting to the room. When we went to... More

Beautiful hotel in a great location. Customer service was hit and miss as well as availability of the the shuttle. I forgot tooth paste and they didn't have any there which was odd to me for the price of the room, and the A/C wasn't running at the time. They seem to be understaffed or there is a lack of... More

Got a deal or so we thought via Hotwire. The pictures are misleading. Where do I start.The hotel does not have a traditional lobby, upon entry there were no signs directing us where to park. In addition no designated Handicap parking (which we needed), We arrived at 3pm and our room was not ready.The hotel seems understaffed - long wait... More

Roberts is an unusual property. It is not a normal hotel - the location is somewhat isolated although perfect for our purpose which was a nearby business meeting. The hotel is elegant in ways - but seems worn and dated also. The rooms are big but on the verge of needing remodeled. The hotel seems understaffed - long wait to... More

Some recent reviews of this hotel are somewhat harsh and will certainly not help draw future customers. And yet, I can understand the concerns. Here's my good, bad and ugly of the Roberts Riverwalk. The good - the location is really outstanding just north of downtown and right on the river with a view of Canada across the way. The... More

I've read many bad reviews about this hotel. I stayed here in late March for a weekend event. The building is old so you get some of the twirks with that but it also has a lot of character. The hotel is right on the riverfront so you get beautiful views. The lobby and ground floor are stunning. The rooms... More

Currently my husband and I are staying in this hotel.. We would have left tonight, if our money was at all refundable. I will try to list the HORRID events we have experienced in chronological order, so that you may see why we have arrived at the rating of one star. First of all, we chose to stay at this... More

It's a shame that a nice looking hotel in a great location is ruined by bad management. I was downtown for the night with a buddy. Our plan was to go to the Tiger game, spend some time downtown and then find a place to sleep for the night. We had no plans to spend much time in the hotel,... More
