Comfortable and attractive hotel

It was ideally located for our day trip to Olympic Island to see the amazing band Pavement. We had a nice walk to the market and got to eat at some very satisfying restaurants. I hope to visit again.

Very Nice!

I was in Toronto to see the band Rush, who were playing at the Air Canada Centre. The ACC was a convenient five-minute walk from the Westin. Also within walking distance was the CN Tower, which is a must-see while in Toronto. The hotel staff was very friendly and very knowledgeable of the local area. There are a variety of restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. For people who are flying into Pearson International Airport, Airport Express bus service has a scheduled stop right in front of the hotel. Plus, there is a subway station right across the street. The Westin is the perfect location for a Toronto visit.

Two thumbs up!

A room with a harbor view allows calm, quiet relaxation while still being in the energy of downtown. We didn't rent a car. An Airport bus ($40 round trip) stops at the front door of the Westin. A nearby Trolley gets you anywhere, and/or it's just few blocks to the subway system. More to do than can fit in any itinerary! Recommend dining at Archeo in the Distillery District. Plenty of shows & shopping, fine dining, coffee shops & cozy pubs, interesting history, great art & great people.

Downtown Toronto

As with Westin hotels, great relaxing beds. The gym was also nice at hotels go and also had a heated pool. Close walk to streetcar/subway system. Restaurants are about a 10-15 minute walk which can seem a bit far, the hotel restaurant breakfast buffet was worth it though.

Super location, friendly service

We would certainly recommend this hotel on our experience. It was well located on the harbour with easy access to the city's playpark of Centre Island which was only a short ferry trip away. It was near the famous CN Tower, Roger's Centre, and the Eaton Shopping Area. Union station was only a few blocks away. The area felt very safe. The rooms had lovely views of the harbour and Centre Islands.

Dining tip: Not Applicable

In general we were used to Irish service at home where the customer is always first and the tip is an appreciation. The impression we were given in Toronto itself was of tip hungry waiters. Are they even paying these guys and gals? Relax, nobody's going to run away without giving a tip.

Beautiful View

We were in town just for a couple of days for a funeral. We were tired and hungry when we arrived, check-in went very smoothly, and we were able to order room-service which was delicious. The room was small, but had a beautiful view and was decorated very tastefully. It wasn't as clean as I would have liked, specifically, there were other people's hair in the tub that really grossed me out, and the bathroom could have been much cleaner.
