“Relaxing,Comfortable,Romantic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Took my wife away for some much needed us time. The Romance package was a nice added bonus to the clean, comfortable room we stayed in. Hotel staff catered to any need without complaint an overall good experience. We will be staying here again in the future.

Room Tip: River view rooms are a nice touch for a romantic night away

Stayed one night;booked the breakfast package. Breakfast was good, friendly staff. The restaurant was located on the second floor overlooking the river, nice view. The room was ok with some upgrade, but there were still signs of an old hotel. Paid $12 plus tax for self parking. The walk from packing to hotel was long, a bridge to the convention center first, walked through the hallway, took an elevator down, passed 2 other hotels, then to Hilton. The dirty carpet and the smell on the way was unpleasant. A renovation would definitely help.

The area around this hotel is not the greatest, but the hotel itself feels safe and secure. Rooms were nice and clean. Beds comfortable. Had a view of the river which was very nice. Would definitely stay here again.

The first think I noticed is that the hotel is positioned perpendicular to the Detroit River with a room on each side of a central hallway so that every room has a view of the river. Our room faced east overlooking the Windsor waterfront park system. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The buffet breakfast was outstanding and reasonably priced, you have the option of ordering a la carte. The breakfast staff was very friendly and the room itself comfortable and offers a view of the river waterfront.

Room Tip: The higher the floor the better the river view.

Overnight stay at the hotel for a business trip and was given a room facing the river which is always my preference and should be yours too. :)

The hotel is about a $10 cab ride (tip incl) from the train station and while not as close to the office I had to visit, it's a nice respite given the view when you get home.

I'm hoping for a return visit so I can explore a bit more.

We were recently at Hilton Windsor for a friend's wedding and it was so convenient to walk without a coat/sweater from the Hilton to the wedding & reception in the St Clair Centre. Beds & Pillows were wonderful and bedding was very soft. Definitely would recommend this Hotel for anyone.

Room Tip: We had a river view room and the skyline in Detroit was lit up at night and spectacular!

My husband and I spent a night at the Hilton. We were well received at the front desk, more than helpful getting us a room with a spectacular view. Parking attendents were very pleasant, genuinely nice... and again very helpful in providing directions for us that we inquired about. Room was clean, comfy bed, all in all a great place and super location! We will be back!

Room Tip: We had a great view from 1308...no noise, 2 queens!
