Center of the Hockey Universe

I stayed in a junior suite overlooking the lake. Very comfortable room and a wonderful view. The hotel is just a couple blocks from the Air Canada Center, and within walking distance for other landmarks like the Hockey Hall of Fame and St. Lawrence Market.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

Parking is pricey throughout Toronto, and that is no different at the hotel. I believe overnight valet parking was $45... I think nearby offsite parking was $35 a night.

Good, but not great

OK hotel, but rooms feel small, and are not well utilized.

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.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

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.

Need a great place for R & R?

The location on the lakefront provided a serene, restful atmosphere in this large hotel. Ideal location to be in the middle of the action without disturbing ur serenity. I`ll certainly stay there again.

Unbreatable price!!!

I have stayed at the Westin Harbour Castle in Toronto many times; it is my hotel of choice when traveling to Toronto. The USD 105 per night was an exceptional price!!!

When looking for a great place to dine, head over to Eden Trattoria. It is located on 58 Marine Parade Drive...just off of Lakeshore & Humber Bay (close to the Expo).

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.
