A winter visit to visit to Windsor could have been bad. And yet the staff at this hotel made it feel like home. Nice big rooms, a responsive and friendly staff, a wonderful restaurant in the lobby and close to everything in Windsor. (Tim Hortons!) It's really a great place. The gym is small for those who want to workout... More

The Holiday Inn Downtown Windsor was very clean and modern and the staff were all friendly. The room was recently upgraded and bathroom was tidy, spic and span. Breakfast was good at on-site restaurant. Very inexpensive and waitress was attentive and funny. Hotel was in heart of downtown near lots of attractions, restaurants and bars.
