Always great rooms and facility! Best place in Thunder Bay to have a staycation. I have been going to the Nor'Westor since I was young to use the pool, hot tub and steam room. Was great then and still is. Also the best place to have a wedding. I have attended quite a few at this location and am always...

The room was located right beside the outside entrance and there was a party coming through the walls. So I'll say my stay was less delightful than one would like. However, great hotel. Only thing else about the pet friendly, it's pretty much the only best western I've stayed in to have you sign your life away if dog hair...

As always the staff made the difference. From the moment I checked in to when I left. Meals at the restaurant nice I recommend the eggs benidict. The accommodation was very nice and clean as always. And the lounge a nice place to unwind after a long day.

The staff at the Norwester are very friendly and helpful. I left my headphones there and they kindly mailed them back to me. The hotel has everything you need on site and a finely equipped fitness facility. My only complaint is that the service at breakfast was slow one morning and I received less than stellar service and lukewarm oatmeal.

One of the nicest hotels I have stayed in. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The location is a little out of town, but well worth the extra drive. My only regret is that I didn't have more time to stay!

Love the staff they are all very accommodating and friendly! Disappointed that the fee for pets is now per night. It is now making it out if our price range as other properties charge a one time fee per stay. We have a four pound dog that does not bark at all. The pool is kept warm so it is...

I'm a student and travelled from Saskatchewan to Ontario to return to my studies after the holidays. I received this great room upgrade on my check-in and was more than comfortable in this beautiful room. Breakfast is off the menu so not your typical complimentary meal. It was all luxury to me and not the first time I stayed here...
