Fine stay

Our stay was good. We were with a large group as those that booked through This site were all placed on fifth floor. My room backed up to fitness center/pool/spa, and was kind of oddly shaped and much larger than other ones I saw. Room was clean, thermostat worked fine. Bedding was extremely nice/comfortable.0

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 but expensive

Staff was great, room was very clean with the great view of the lake, but prices are at NYC level - 40CAD for valet parking and it is now when USD is less then CAD...very pricey trip it turned out to be. I didn't check the restaurants in te hotel, but dining around was also quite expensive.

45th Wedding Anniversary - Westin Harbour Castle

Spent our 45thWedding Anniversary (June 2nd/3rd) at the Westin - lovely hotel. Great pool, Tennis, Fitness, Lobby but no Valet parking as it was Full :( Checkin was fabulous - great service and the room was immaculate. Would not recommend the “Fine” Italian restaurant on the 38th floor (Tuhla). However. the views from the restaurant were amazing but the food was just OK.

First time in Toronto

This was a very nice hotel, especially for the price of the room. A surprise was the cost of parking, that is probably because I'm not used to it but $80 for the weekend seemed a bit much. Even a block away was 60 for the weekend so we just went for valet. The hotel is in a good location, but a bit of a hike from the downtown life. The hotel itself was very nice, and we were very pleased. One of the concierge was very snooty and unhelpful. As for the rest of the staff, they were great. I would definitely reccommend it!

Second Time Guests

I almost forgot how special we were treated the first time around, but was wonderfully reminded when we arrived. I love the staff and their attention to making you feel wanted, everyone goes out of their way. I will definitely be back a third time at some point in the future. :)

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.
