4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Spent a week for hockey WC. Perfectly located hotel for sports and close for down town shopping. Beautiful scene to Lake Ontario and ferries to island departures just behind the hotel. Rooms are ok - nothing fancy. Breakfast fine, but rather expensive. Sauna + gym and Wi-Fi included, at least we had that in the package. Could come back.

Was on business with my company and happily surprised by the warmth and caring of this very large hotel. People were incredibly helpful. Housekeeper was charming and food was great. The location was enjoyable - took ferry to island just a short ride and felt like a whole different city

We were surprised to find the disgraceful entrance to this supposedly up-market hotel with hot dog stands and very dirty pavement immediately outside. This really needs to be addressed by the city and hotel management as it lowers the tone of the place and when combined with the very shabby walk up to the main lobby off the street it... More

Had a wonderful time at this hotel. Could not find anything wrong with it. It is in a great location right on Lake Ontario. The staff were very friendly and provided as much help as we needed. We wanted extra coffee in the room and someone came up within 5 minutes. Would have no hesitation recommending this hotel to anyone.

Hotel location is great and offers beautiful views of the lake. Found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. It appears renovations are in-progress, which are needed as the rooms are quite worn. They charge for wifi, which is disappointing especially as I stayed at a different Westin the night before and it was free.

I'm a luxury traveller; therefore, I have high standards and expectations. I stayed at the Harbour Castle in the Winter and as an SPG top level member and they were nice to upgrade my room to a corner room with a nice view. Room: Clean. Gym: Too small. Food: I didn't try. Overall: Nice hotel if you're staying in downtown... More

A short walk from Union Station (which would have been shorter if I didn't get lost) and right next to the ferry terminal to Toronto Island. The staff was friendly and the amenities were what you'd expect from a Westin property. Easy walking distance to all the downtown shops and restaurants and sporting venues.

Great location near lots of food outlets at the Harbour front. Right in front of the Ferry Terminals. Room is very comfortable but does not supply a Refrigerator. The room service leaves a bit to be desired such as no Tea Bags, no spare Toilet Rolls which we had to ask for and they eventually came. It's location is the... More

Fantastic hotel, excellent staff, excellent facilities, fantastic views from the top floor restaurant..... only negative was the cost of breakfast. Lobby is well decorated and an ideal place for a coffee or a cocktail.

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.
