Clean hotel but decorating is odd. Looks like someone couldn't make up their mind about what decorating style they were going to go with or else got furniture at garage or going out of business sales. Furniture is heavy, marble topped and nothing matches. Room was decent size but furniture is oddly placed and a bit awkward. Bathroom is very dated, very small and has leaky, slow plumbing. Exterior doors are propped open with garbage cans which is not ideal, security wise. Staff was courteous but not willing to do much to be helpful. Rise and Dine breakfast included which is absolutely minimal and almost reluctantly offered. On site restaurant called Marquis is open for breakfast and lunch and prices are excellent, food is terrific and service above reproach. Much like the hotel it is a little odd in its configuration but don't let that stop you. This hotel needs to be seriously upgraded and brought to current styles. Free parking and lots of it was a bonus. I heard that some rooms are really nice, ours which was on the first floor was definitely not one of them.

George C, General Manager at Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel Windsor, responded to this review, October 5, 2013
Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review. I am glad that you were pleased with the service provided by our staff and the food at our restaurant. Based on your other comments, I believe you might have stayed in one of our Standard rooms. I am sorry you found your accommodations to be less than satisfactory. We have undertaken renovations at our hotel, but our efforts have been focused on our Superior rooms for the time being. If you do return to Windsor and decide to stay at our hotel again, I would encourage to try our Superior rooms. At an additional cost of only $10 + tax/night, our Superior rooms are more spacious, have more amenities, and are more recently-renovated. Again, thank you for your review and we look forward to seeing you again at our hotel.
