On the night of the joint Windsor-Detroit annual fireworks, husband and I stayed at this Radisson. Great view for fireworks - either from hotel room or park across the street. The Windsor side seems to accommodate more spectators than the Detroit side of the river, as there is a long riverwalk/parkway where people can gather.
Our room was relatively small, but had a very comfortable Sleep Number bed. The parkway along the river (there is one on the Detroit side as well) is wonderful. There are beautiful plantings - small gardens really - along the river walk and room for walkers, bikers and skaters. River view rooms face directly on the river, with only one street and the parkway between hotel and river. Barges, sailboats, freighters move along the river - fun to watch. The Detroit skyline is the better view when compared to the Windsor skyline - the city alight at night affords quite a nice view. Hotel staff were polite and efficient. We didn't really need anything from them. One thing we did not like is that there is an 80 cent charge on each local call -- use your own cellphone.
