Lake front views, elegance, convenience

Airport Express picks up and drops off right in front, so access to Pearson is excellent. Access to trams/streetcars and the subway is also quite good -- a tram runs out front and the Union subway station is a good 4, 5 blocks walking distance. You can print out your boarding pass in the lobby, buy and mail a postcard from the hotel, have a drink up high, and relax in your Heavenly Bed. A top notch hotel.

There's a park right next to the hotel with paths leading down to a waterfront walkway. Makes for a nice morning or evening walk.

Scenic Wonder!

The staff person at check-in was very friendly, efficient and helpful. When my associate arrived for our meeting, we had a quiet place to discuss our business concerns and the view made the atmosphere relaxed and easy to focus on our work. We enjoyed the rest of our time catching up with each other's summer adventures and went for an early dinner at the Terminal, just a few steps away. The location is great, with easy access to Harbour Front locations and to public transportation. The only thing that was annoying was the charge for internet access, which for a full service hotel of this calabre I found surprising. Nevertheless, it was a first class experience overall and I would stay there again any time.

For a light, casual meal, the Queen's Quay Terminal has many dining options, as well as being an interesting historical site, with shopping, entertainment and recreational activities suitable for couples, out-of-town guests and families.

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.

Unbeatable location for the price

A fantastic hotel with a great location.You had the best of both worlds, Toronto island with all it's quiet beaches and spectacular views in front of you and the city right behind you. We were given a complimentary upgrade to a lake view.We could lay in bed and watch the boats on the lake very relaxing. The bed was the best I have ever slept in.The hotel pool was open untill 11pm which was great. Toronto is an easy city to get around using public transport, you feel safe and it is very good value. Toronto is full of friendly people and there is so much to do and see. I'd love to go again and stay at the Westin Harbour Castle.

If you book a meal at the 360 degrees resturant at the top of CN Tower you do not have to pay travel in the lift.It's a must see, the views from the top of the tower are fantastic.

Great Experience

I stayed at the Westin in Toronto because I had a job interview nearby. I didn't explore all of the amenities (pool, gym, business center) because I was basically in and out. My room had a king size bed, a couch, a huge full size mirror, flat screen. The bathroom had a huge mirror too. I could almost see my whole body (except my shin and below) and had the "natural sunlight" lighting around the perimeter. There was a handheld mirror that was pretty gigantic (very nice). They included hair dryer and of course soap, shampoo, & conditioner which is their own brand in the fragrance called "White Tea Aloe." Smells pretty good. Some towels were still soft, some towels were a little rough, but that's really not an issue for me. The staff were extremely friendly and made you feel comfortable enough to ask questions, and whatever else you needed. I didn't try their food though, but the choices do sound delicious. Of course they are expensive, so don't expect any less. When you check in, however, if you choose the "green option," the cleaning staff will not clean your room until you leave in order to conserve energy, and you either get $5 meal voucher or 500 points if you are a member of their club.

Basically right across the street is a deli, a market place, and a sushi restaurant. I've eaten something from those three places and all taste good. If you're looking for healthy, Vita's marketplace is the better choice than the deli. Sushi isn't cheap, but it's not bad and it tastes really good.
