I had an excellent experience at the Westin last weekend. They were very accommodating and made me and boyfriend feel like celebrities. We didn't have to wait at all while checking in as there was enough staff on hand, in addition the wonderful girl who checked us in offered to send us up a piece of cake when she found...

The Westin Harbour Castle Hotel at 1 Harbour Square, Toronto, ON M5J 1A6, Canada was an excellent stay for our meetings this week! Everything about this particular hotel was just great. Location, location, location. First and foremost this hotel is smack dab in the middle of downtown. Just a short walk away from dozens of restaurants, bars, grocery stores, the...

The Westin is located right next to the waterfront in Toronto. There is a lot to do around here in the summertime, with fun activities a little further down the street. A new BeaverTails opened up just a 5-minute walk away. There is a light rail station that connects to Union Station on the kitty corner. The rooms are a...

So as it details in my title, this has been my first solo trip. I was a bit skeptical at first choosing The Westin Harbour Castle - boy was I wrong. I don't know why there are negative views. I have never felt so welcomed before at a hotel. When I was checked in, I was greeted with a warm...

I stayed for a night at The Harbour Castle so I could make the most of a conference there, right here in my own city. I arrived by public transportation which dropped me off right across from the hotel. When you are by the lake you go through a bit of a transformation that whisks you away from the busy...

The Westin Harbour Castle has a great location on the Toronto harbour. This area is currently being renovated & renewed, and the Westin is no exception. The rooms have been refreshed and were very clean & comfortable. The view of the harbour was beautiful.

Choose to return to this hotel for a second stay due primarily to location and lake view. Hotel was finally being refurbished (long overdue) and I was being upgraded to full lake view room at no extra cost. Also the world junior hockey tournament was being hosted by Canada, so you can imagine the atmosphere in the hotel and Toronto;...

Aside from the one room I had where water from the cold faucet would drip a bit whenever I turned on the hot sink faucet, the room had decent accommodation and spacious design. The Lakeview was absolutely lovely to witness, especially at sundown. Indoor heated pool could've used more heat overall in the later evening, especially when the families and...

I had the pleasure of staying at the Westin Harbour Castle for a business trip. What a delightful hotel! I had a beautiful view of the Lake Ontario Harbour from my window. The hotel was incredibly welcoming--the desk clerk was engaging, interested in my needs, and actually came out from behind the desk to hand me my key and direct...

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.

“Hard to go wrong. I like a high floor with a view of the lake, the ferries and the planes landing at Billy Bishop Airport across the harbour. But a vie wof the city lit up at night is also pretty special.”
