We made a trip to Windsor over the Labour Day weekend and we’ve been quite satisfied with this hotel.
We had a king suite (suite as in a very large room), with river view (and an unexpected fireworks show Saturday night).
The hotel is “downtown”, this makes the parking less convenient (details in previous reviews; just a quick walk if you don’t mind going outdoors) and the non-river views less spectacular (many closed/abandoned shops in walking distance).
The buffet breakfast is OK, one day it was understaffed though (and, sadly, the restaurant on evenings looked overstaffed). The restaurant is closed Sun-Mon evenings but there is a bar menu with enough selections to enjoy a dinner there.
Overall this still is a very good hotel, but the city is in an economic slump and the revival is probably dependent on Detroit’s fortune (even the Windsor casino complex - maybe 600 metres away from Hilton - is operating now with 3,200 employees from 5,000 at its top).
I wish them well but it won’t be easy.
