We chose this hotel since it was close to the ferry ride to Tortola. It was only a 1-night stay and the rate per night was a reasonable for the area. The hotel is run-down. The rooms are actually less dated than the exterior. Free wi-fi was a nice plus. Pool in the center courtyard with no spa. Golf putting...

This is a clean, convenient place to stay when needing just a one or two night location. There are not a lot of choices in the area for non-resort lodging. The price is fair considering you are on St. Thomas. very convenient to easily walk to the center of the shopping area & great restaurants. The Green Iguana Restaurant is...

Our flight arrived St Thomas too late to get the last ferry to the British Virgin Islands. The ferry dock is across the street from the Windward Passage hotel. That make this a convenient stop for connecting to the ferry. The free WIFI in the room worked well. You have to be careful of the taxi drivers who try to...

Very good location, across from ferry, we stayed here one night before catching the ferry & of course knew it was not a "5 star" hotel but just for the convenience it was very good. The front desk clerks both on check in and out were nice and helpful, the room was clean, sheets clean and bed comfortable. It was...

A very curt and dismissive front desk daytime clerk when I tried to check in 30 minutes early; no comp upgrade even though the hotel was nearly empty. Casino was not very good. Doorman tried to give away my cab in the rain, though I had booked it 4 hours earlier; very argumentative and unpleasant. Don't eat here. Only bright...

Based on descriptions there must be a big difference between renovated and not renovated rooms. We stayed here 10 years ago, chose it again this time for the convenience to the BVI ferry dock which is just about across the street. It seems to be a place for business travelers and the military, we saw several of each. Our room...

I'll second many of the recent reviews...yellow-brown water when turning on the shower, uninterested front desk staff and a very old hotel. The pictures are quite generous (even for the renovated rooms). It's fine for one night but don't stay any longer...you'll be disappointed. Don't eat here...the morning wait staff are even less interested than the front desk and we...

My coworker and I returned to this hotel but inconsistencies continue. Arriving at 5pm, we still waited for a clean room at check-in over 20 minutes. The restaurant(not part of the hotel) remains the better part of Windward. The service is very friendly, unlike the front desk staff, who seek to find a way to get you away from them...

This hotel is located right in Charlotte Amalie, so you can walk the down town shops, eat at the local restaurants and keep away from the cruise ship area, this is the hotel's most important feature. Only the front facing rooms have a view the side and back rooms don't have much to look at. Rooms seem to have been...

I met a couple from Texas when I was in St. John (Trunk Bay is beautiful) last year, and this is where they stayed. They assured me it's decent, and it is. Pool is never crowded. It's a shame there is only one restaurant on site, and it's expensive. Luckily, this location is walking distance to many other restaurants and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Windward Passage Hotel is truly your bargain in paradise. We are perfect for business travelers and the ideal choice for short stays and shopping trips. Centrally located, overlooking the picturesque Charlotte Amalie harbor, we are within walking distance of the major downtown shopping district and an even shorter walk away from the ferry and seaplane docks for transit to nearby islands. Transfer to the beaches is convenient for all our guests, so they miss out on nothing on our tropical island. Our Ocean View Rooms boast a breath-taking view of the harbor and our staff is courteous and friendly. We are constantly updating and improving our facilities to serve you better. You are welcome to stop by and pay us a visit. ... more   less
