Beautiful hotel

We had some problems at check in but the staff was very friendly and accommodated us at a different hotel for free for one night. Would definitely stay at this hotel again!

Great value

Great location; took the ferry to the island; best way to spend a Friday afternoon; avoid weekends when the ferry is too busy. close enough to the convention center. careful when you dine in the penthouse restaurant; they offered us a special that was not listed, and it was a rip off

Great Hotel with an excellent Lake view

This hotel was centrally located to everything we wanted to do. Close to the subway system, buses and trolleys. The Harbourfront was walking distance away. Close to the CN Tower, Rogers centre and Hockey hall of fame. Easy access to the Ferry's to Centerville Toronto Island. Great hotel for families vacationing. I will choose Westin for any trip I take from hence forth.

Great hotel, perfect location

We were in Toronto for 6 days for the film festival. The Westin, while not smack in the middle of downtown, is a pleasant 15-minute walk to the Elgin/Winter Garden theaters. We stayed there last year as well. We decided not to rent a car because the cost of parking at the hotel (around $40 per day) is prohibitive. We figured out that we could walk to most locations and could take a cab or subway for greater distances. The hotel provides an infrequent free shuttle to the Eaton Centre, which is right near the Elgin Theatre and the subway. By infrequent, I mean 4 or 5 times a day, the first trip at 12:30. It would be so much more useful if they had a much earlier trip into downtown - 8 or 9 a.m. The lobby bar is very nice, and as we got in quite late some nights, it was great that we could relax there and order drinks and light food until 1 a.m. Very convenient and a pleasant way to end the day. I have to mention that the bedding is among the most comfortable I have experienced in a hotel.

Walk to the left about a block upon leaving the hotel and you will find the Cocoberry Cafe. Wonderful breakfasts at about half the price of those in the hotel. Great Eggs Benedict and Belgian waffles.

$40 day parking $15pd Internet RIPOFF

If you book on here you get the [*] room, and then to top it off the hotel is a total rip off as far as prices, you have to pay $40 per ay for parking, $15 per day for internet, and $5 for a can of coke... they automatically add 18% to any food order and a $2 surcharge... this place is not worth the money...
