We booked two rooms for one night - both rooms were clean and tidy. Both rooms also had a stunning view of the Detroit river. In-room fridge. Comfortable beds. Highly recommend this hotel for anyone planning a trip to Windsor. Centrally located downtown, next to the river.

We really enjoyed our stay at the BWP. Apon arriving there was construction out front (we were not aware of this) but we simply pulled up in front of the building beside and went and checked in. Lady at front desk was great..gave us the 20th floor and the two queen beds we requested. She said 1 bed rooms had...

Front of the building was under construction, work out rooms were unavailable, water pressure in the basin was nearly non- existent and we had no idea at the time of booking on-line that parking was $12 extra which would have been the cost to stay at the casino where parking was free and that was the main reason for our...

Booked a panorama view room for the Ford Fireworks Show for July 4th. Although the hotel was going through some renovations at the time, having a front row seat to watch the fireworks from my room (actually from the bed) was well worth it. The night weather was beautiful but I opted to watch from my room vs. going outside...

Pleasantly surprised with the view of the water! The building is built so all rooms face the water- which is amazing! The bed were comfy an room clean. We only stayed for the one night to see a concert at the casino (which is walking distance). The breakfast was nothing special but it's free.. We will more than likely be...

Our room was pleasant and roomy enough for a 2 night stay. We did not notice any noise from neighbours or the hallway despite being almost sold out. Our view of the river was also very pleasant. The dining area is roomy and breakfast was pretty standard as far as what you would expect from hotels offering breakfast as part...

Nice comfortable place to stay. Plenty of food for breakfast and with walking distance of downtown. Room was clean and view of the Ambassador Bridge was very nice. However the air conditioning was a bit noisy but nothing that would Keep you awake.

What was initially built as a Hilton Hotel in the 80's, this hotel has nicely renovated rooms from past Hotelier with much needed and updated Lobby area. Don't expect a lot of frills but all rooms are a decent size with incredible views. The breakfast included is nothing to write about but good for a quick nibble before you head...

We stayed here for 2 nights for a family getaway and we had 2 rooms with outstanding views, ample and generous space, and we will visit again. I was very satisfied with the customer service and the breakfast was thoroughly enjoyed by my family.

Needs a lot of improvement. Staff needs to be well trained about hotel's reward promotion. The breakfast is EXTREMELY disappointing. Although there were good things like comfortable beds and pillows, the hotel lacks many of the 'Plusses' it tries to sell to consumers. But Windsor doesn't have a lot of hotel options, some other chains are building new properties. Perhaps...
