Every room has a water view thanks to the smart design of this hotel. All went well just the parking lot was separate from the hotel (at the back, cross the street). Excellent place to stay if you go in May during the fishing frenzy!

I had to travel to Windsor for a conference and stayed here. The location was fantastic! And the view from my room was fantastic! My room overlooked the river and I could see the skyline for Detroit. Very pretty. I found the staff amazing! Everyone was friendly and very customer service oriented. Great Experience! I would definitely stay here again...

This used to be the Hilton on Riverside. The rooms are clean. A nice sized buffet breakfast is complimentary. There is a little snack corner off reception stocked with pop, juice, chips, candy. There is no room service. It is not a far walk to the Kev if you would like a steak dinner. Rooms are basic and amenities are...

This hotel was so beautiful.. I was sad to leave! We stayed here for a wedding and were given the most amazing room with the most beautiful view of the water. This hotel was clean and very accommodating! The 24 hour snack shop is a great idea for after a night out! I will definitely return to this hotel!!

This was by far the best Best Western that I have ever stayed at. And I would rank it in general as one of the best hotels that I have stayed at. They had an awesome breakfast and the hotel is located in a great location on the river. The view was awesome. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We stayed there in the middle of May. Beautiful view from the room to the Detroit river and Detroit skyline. Amazing! The room was clean, it was quiet, and really no complaints. Breakfast was excellent. Staff were professional, and very efficient. We would definitely stay there again!!!

We booked two rooms at the Best Western Plus. One room had a beautiful view of Ambassador Bridge and the river. The other had an obstructed view but was fine. Both rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfasts are included and there is an above average selection of food offered. Parking is at a parking garage off Pitt Street behind the...

The rooms might be a little dated but the level of customer service and the breakfast more than make up for it. Not a single issue staying at this hotel and the view of Detroit is spectacular. Walking distance to everything you need.
