A Pleasant Experince
The staff at this hotel made our stay very pleasant. Everyone we came in contact with was friendly and very helpful.
The views from our room were spectacular. The rooms were very clean but in need of some updating. The staff more than made up for this however.
Your in Canada now
Stayed here over the summer, the hotel seemed fine. It regards to the previous comments - the hotel may not be the best Hilton, but when the city is plagued by American teenagers excited they can have a drink a few years early, what do you expect? I did get valet parking when I was there and it was $21..canadian, not US. When you come to Canada, everything is in Canadian prices! What a shocker!!
I would definitely spend the extra bit of money for a full view room though. The hotel has an outstanding view. The restaurant was also great, excellent food.
Not what I expected from a Hilton!
Stayed at the Windsor Hilton July 3 and July 4, 2004. I must say that the hotel has a wonderful location but can't say too much else positive about the experience. The room was small, dark, and dingy. There was no coffee or coffee cups in the room upon arrival, however, requested these items and they were delivered. I think the single most disturbing issue was that when our room we supposedly cleaned on Sunday that the ONLY thing that happened was that our beds were made. Dirty coffee cups, dirty ashtrays, garabage cans not even touched. Needless to say we once again had to request "supplies", ie: clean coffee cups, coffee, fresh towels, etc. I have paid much less and have received MUCH better service elsewhere. The only other problem is that self-parking is behind the hotel that is not convenient and valet service is billed at $21.00 USD. Oh well, I guess in this case we didn't get what we paid for. Don't think I would stay there again.
Stayed here for a convention. Asked for a room with a view of Detroit, was provided one at no extra charge. Washroom is small, had the fragile towel rack fall on my foot, leaving a permanent scar. Bed was fine. Restaurant in hotel has a great supper buffet, chef visited our table to inquire if food was fine. It is a Hilton, but an average one at best, compared to other Hilton locations.
Nice enough hotel
We booked approx. 20 rooms for a wedding at the Windsor Hilton right on riverside drive. We had some suites facing the river and the view of the detroit skyline is gorgeous. Especially the sunsets.
Most of the staff is friendly, however the reception checkin staff were most unfriendly. The restaurant (river terrace) has excellent food and very nice and friendly staff. Some of our rooms had a very "musty mildewy" smell. Housekeeping would not clean the coffee pot or garbage cans everyday. Weird if you ask me.
Overall a decent hotel - but the really need to do something about the friendliness of the front desk and also the cleanliness of their rooms.
Nice Enough Place
I've stayed at the Hilton twice....only because rooms weren't available at Casino Windsor. This is a decent hotel. Nothing really special about it. We had corner-type rooms both times we were there which was nice, as they were a bit bigger in size. The view of the river was nice. The bathrooms are clean, but nothing compared to Casino Windsor. We had no problems with an unclean room or anything, but unless I absolutely had to, I probably wouldn't choose to stay here again. Casino Windsor is MUCH better by comparison.
Panoramic view/Romantic package
The windsor Hilton was terriffic. Been twice, will be going back again next month. I recomend a room with a panoramic view. (It's a spectacular view) Add to that the "romance package", and you'll have a GREAT stay. Awesome way to rekindle a romantic relationship. $200 canadian, but well worth the price.
Hilton was OK
I can't say there was anything wrong with the Hilton. It was comfortable, had a good location, and the staff was neither especially friendly nor nasty. It was priced fairly. Yet it was not especially memorable either. The room had a beautiful view of the suprisingly green Detroit river, but did not even have a mini bar.
Hilton Windsor gives Hilton Hotels an Awful name
Unpon deciding to stay at the Hilton in Windor, I thought that i had nothing to worry about, as it was a Hilton, and all the Hilton Hotels I had stayed in prior were wonderful. Not this one. They lost our reservations, did not tell me that my boss had reserved a full dinner for me (for my birthday) and gave us the very dirtiest room I had ever seen. There were cigarette burns on the carpeting, the bathroom was filthy, the garbage was not emptied. The one night at this hotel has stopped me from visiting any other Hilton Hotel. It was the worst experience I have ever had at any hotel. It would be better to stay next door at the Radisson for less money.
Look somewhere else
I stayed in this place on the 23 of Feb 2002. It was a complete mess. Its supposed to be a 4 star Hotel Maybe metric stars. its about 1/2 a star it is dirty, takes way to long to check in even though we booked weeks in advance. the pool was nice. The room a suite again must be metric stay at the radisson

When I went away travelling on my own before, I started my travels in Toronto, returning to the city later in my travels too, spending a couple of weeks there in total. So when we arrived in Toronto after leaving Niagara Falls much seemed familiar, but some things had changed too.
I wouldn't recommend people visit Toronto on holiday for …

In fact looking from the 72nd floor of the GM tower it surprises us both how green Detroit is...this is no concrete city and has only around a dozen high rise buildings. From this viewpoint we can also look across the river to see Canada. Having said that Detroit is trying to turn itself around, the News channels ...
We ended up forgetting a few things that were noticed at the Sam's Club we were stocking up at, so we had another departure around 6 pm est. We drove until early evening, stopping often at Cracker Barrel (wasn't open) and White Castle. As we got sleepy, we then stopped near Indianapolis at a Flying j to sleep among the semi ...

On the way, we did get a quick glimpse of Frank Lloyd Wright's famous Robie House, but sadly there was no place to park, and it was raining somewhat, so we will leave that for another time.
Now after having had a delicious lunch at the Cracker Barrel (one of my favourite stops ...
