Is this news article what you posted? No reason at all for it to be removed. I don't think the Hilton is closing, just going to be renovated. The new owners say:

>>Farhi, whose company is based out of London, said in a phone interview Wednesday that he and Vranich will be spending “considerable” money renovating the 305 rooms at the Hilton. He said it will remain a hotel<<

The link to the full article about the Riverside becoming student housing and the Hilton being renovated is here:

…windsorstar.com/2013/…

SS, if I've got this info and link right, you might like to remove your own OP because the title statement would not be correct.

The news article from Windsor stated that unless Farhi got extensive concessions from the union (a 20 per cent pay cut) he would be converting the hotel into Condos. So, although it does not state that they are going to close the Hilton, it looks like a long struggle ahead for the property.

It might be better if the title to this thread was more about "Windsor Hilton Hotel changes to be aware of" or similar.

It was also said that it would be converted to a Best Western Hotel.

Yes, the first story was back in May, now just last week, all 60 staff workers at the Hilton got layoff notices. The new hotel owners want a 20% pay cut and ARE getting rid of the Hilton brand name by the end of this year. Best Western hotels are just a 3 star hotel and offer no valet parking and other 4 star perks.

That is big news if your making plans for New Year Eve. Priceline/Hotwire, etc are not telling you yet that the Hilton will not be a Hilton by 2014.

Just cause the building might still be a hotel net year doesn't please most Hilton guests, they want all the 4 star perks Hilton offers--plus your reward points are not longer good and you don't earning Hilton points while staying at a B.W.
