We stayed recently at the Macdonald Windsor Hotel. The hotel is a converted department store that was newly renovated in the last few years.
If you are going to Windsor Castle and also want to do some shopping the location couldn't be better.
They did a first rate job in renovating the rooms, though don't expect any views. You are likely to be looking across to another room or local building. Otherwise the rooms are very nice, and though not large they are reasonable in size and the use of space was well designed.
When we checked in the hotel was packed with a luncheon event, but we nevertheless experienced friendly and helpful service.
About the only negative to the hotel is the parking. If you park in the hotel parking lot (limited space) it is 25 bps per night and the alternative they offer is some distance away and is slightly less at 20 bps per night. Also, you need to plan ahead to figure out where to best unload/load your car. Don't try the front of the hotel. There isn't any real space, the street is busy and the sidewalks can be packed. Instead, use the back entrance. It is a little convoluted finding it, and also has limted space, but you won't be as rushed.
