5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

What a wonderful experience!!! If you prefer quality over modern, surface trappings, this is the place to stay. As another guest stated, "It is a five star hotel masquerading as a two star."
This hotel is clean beyond any expectations, it is quiet, the beds are excellent, the service is superb, the breakfast is excellent, and there is a delightful small restaurant on site that is open for breakfast and lunch with an exceptional menu and delightful staff.
We look forward to staying there again. WHAT A TREAT!!!

The rooms are outdated , and need a face lift !!!
Bagels at breakfast were old and stale , poor selection .
This breakfast menu was a direct reflection of a lazy or unhappy person . it is amazing when you get a professional help or advise how the same kind of breakfast can look (I am in sales and travel all over Ontario).

Hello Mr. Avshalom,

I am sorry you were not pleased with the quality of your accommodations at our hotel. However, I would invite you to try our Superior guest rooms the next time you are in Windsor. Our Superior guest rooms are more recently renovated, have more amenities, and are larger in size. The guest room you stayed in, I believe, was a Standard room. We are undertaking a phased renovation and will eventually get around to our Standard rooms, but we are currently focusing on our Superior rooms.

As for the breakfast, I believe you were referring to our complimentary continental breakfast. We do have a restaurant on-site that offers a greater selection of breakfast options, including hot breakfast items such as eggs, omelettes, bacon, ham, pancakes, and french toast. I would also invite you to try our restaurant the next time you are in Windsor.

Thank you for your comment and we look forward to welcoming you back to our hotel in the near future.

Regards,
George Chifor, General Manager

I stayed at this Hotel last saturday, I had checked in around 6 and had no problem with getting my room; although the hotel is old the renovated room was worth it. A young lady at the front desk was very helpful she helped us choose a nice restaurant to dine and was very polite and welcoming. The room was great; you get what you paid for! We had a good time. The young lady also took time searching for activities to do around the city as well as great restaurants; even as we were on our way to the hotel we phoned and it was the same girl that was very patient and directed us to the hotel. The customer service was amazing. The breakfast was limited but great and the cookies were just delicious!

Room Tip: For the extra $10 (i think) the upgraded room is sure worth it!
