Booked a room at Caesars Windsor on a whim ... we were flying into the Detroit airport after a week in Florida and not landing until midnight. Booked a special rate online the day before our stay -- room was $84 for the night, I figured for the area and what I was getting that couldn't be beat.
We arrived just after 1 a.m. Our GPS took us over the border through the tunnel instead of the bridge. Took the advice of other reviewers and decided not to self-park our car because of the long walk from the parking garage to the front desk, used the free valet instead (with tip of course). Had to go around the block to find the valet, it was a bit tricky. Hotel was very quiet (very early on a Wednesday morning) and check in was quick. The woman said we were being upgraded to a deluxe suite from our standard room, which was a nice surprise after a week of staying at budget hotels in cramped rooms or on a less-than-desirable airbed.
Was a bit of a walk through the casino to the elevator for the Forum tower (the older tower of the two) which I admit wasn't pleasant after a long night of travel, made worse by the fact we were dragging some pretty large suitcases. Took a glass-sided elevator to the 19th floor, quite a view going up! Opened the door to our room and wow! A large living room with a sectional couch and half bath, flatscreen TV, office area, bar with mini-fridge and a beautiful view of the Detroit River. Separate bedroom with a king size bed, full sitting area, another TV, dressing area, a bath with a lovely stand-up shower, jetted tub, lighted make-up mirrors, infrared heat bulbs in the ceiling to keep you warm out of the shower. Even two bathrobes in the closet for good measure. Did I mention the bedroom had the same lovely view of the river? It did!
Needless to say, after paying $80-something, we were BLOWN away. It was just lovely, and we were sad we got in so late and didn't get to enjoy it all!
We did head downstairs to grab something to eat as room service wasn't available (not a great thing but I'll live), a sports bar was all that was open. We were seated at 1:55 a.m. and ordered a drink but were told the bar was closed. This was a little disappointing ... we really wanted a drink and weren't able to find one, despite the poshness of the room it did not have a mini-bar, just an empty fridge. We ended up splitting a wrap and fries which was surprisingly tasty considering it was pub fare.
We checked out via the TV the next morning and left. Didn't even spend a cent at the slots. But we have decided to come back and stay for the night and enjoy the casino. It was smart of them to upgrade us on a slow night as it has definitely made us want to come back!
The property itself is clean and smells fresh, no smoking inside which is nice. It is a well-maintained property. Again, our room was lovely, I will note a few little things which were NOT an issue to us at all (considering what we paid!) but what some people might be bothered by in a suite -- there was a small strip of wallpaper peeling in the bathroom and the vanity in the bathroom was also a little dinged up along the bottom shelf. Laughable things to even note in my opinion.
