Rated 2 out of 5 by Pat7 Decent hotel but staff ruin it
Good clean hotel, good area and relatively clean. Staff however leave a lot to be desired. Front desk was disorganized and un helpful in resolving problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Revepw This hotel is inviting
The first impression is inviting and welcoming. From the front desk staff, to the restaurant staff the spirit of hospitality prevails. Coupled with the warm, enveloping design details, the stay was a treat worth repeating.

Nice hotel. For the type of food that was served, I feel food was over priced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PLAKTYK Home away from Home
I'm from the Maritimes and don't really enjoy being in Toronto but have had to be in the city a lot for work. Unfortunately now I have to move to Toronto (which I'm not that happy about) from Halifax (which I adore) because it's more cost effective even with the hike in the cost of living. The only thing that is allowing me to get a bit excited about this move is The Westin Prince. Knowing that this beautiful hotel, with its amazing staff, is a short train ride out of the city is enough to allow me to exhale.
Whenever I come to Toronto now I always stay at The Westin Prince. The turnover is quite minimal so I've been dealing with some of the the staff for coming on 4 years which, as a maritimer and a frequent traveler, makes a potentialy volatile and erratic experience more like coming to visit friends you don't get to see every day.
The Westin Prince and its staff will always hold a special place in my heart. As someone who really only stays at Westins when travelling all over the world that's saying something.

Our stay at the Westin Prince was excellent and we want to thank everyone, especially Joseph at check-in, for making our stay so comfortable. In spite of having 200 people check in and out at the same time, your staff were all very friendly and accommodating. We will definitely recommend your hotel!

Clean room, attentive and professional staff. Only shortcomgs were: Breakfast couldn't be delivered as early as I'd like and housekeeping didn't replenish the toiletries making my morning shower a challenge

My room had flies. One night a fly was on my bed, and on a daily basis several flies were on the sliding door. I did not expect this at a Westin hotel! The hallway had a hole in the wall with wallpaper coming down. My room was room number 1112. The food was excellent at the hotel, and doormen are excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by favre poor service
Was very disappointed with staff attitude. we had checked in with 2 rooms after a accident at our home made us leave our home. we were awoken at 10 pm with a fire alarm which went on for 1 hour. my 2 children were exhausted the next day for school. when i went to the front desk the next day. The gentleman just shrugged and said it was unfortunate. I would think a hotel with good service would have at least offered a free night or some other compensation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SalvelinusN good over all
All in all my stay was fine. The desk staff was freindy courteous and eager to please. Food and servie in the lounge was also above average for lounge food. I think though it is abslolutely rediculous to provide a 50" TV without HD feed. it is a contradicio in terms. Whyu woukd you wnt to see a huge depicitionn of a poor quelity image? IIf yo don't want to spring for HD don't provide a large flat screen TV. its silly

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ace13 Late Friday night fire alarm...
Our first night of 3 had us up with fire alarms for over 1 hour - very loud in the guest rooms. The hotel was never evacuated. Fire department came and made mostly unintelligible announcements telling us to stay in our rooms.
I thought that this very annoying event might cause the Westin Prince to cut us a break on the cost of our stay, but no, in addition to charging for every little thing they can, this was a valid fire alarm in their view and did not warrant any break in the price of the room for that eventful evening.
It is definitely a nice-enough place to stay. But not being able to sleep needs to cost the hotel something in my mind. Not happy that they don't believe the same thing.
We stayed at the Westin Prince because the wedding party chose it for the location. I'll probably stay elsewhere next time I'm in Toronto.

From the moment I drove in the lane, I knew I would enjoy my stay, The building and grounds are well maintained and my room was sooo comfy .... but I had to go to my conference! Great facilities - awesome food!!! Just want to know how you managed to have the 3 deer wander through the garden as a welcome distraction during the boring part of my course!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Arrowmaker Nice Property, but the Kitchen does not meet the Starwood standard
Stayed at here for the first time in 15 years a few days ago. Very impressed with the updates and, of course, always impressed with the 'Heavenly Bed'. Unfortunately, the kitchen is not up tot the Starwood standard. We went to the dining room about 8:30 pm on Sunday evening for a small bite after a day on the road. The warm Camembert I ordered was certainly not warm and essentially tasteless. The next morning, the kitchen could not correctly produce soft-boiled eggs; poached and hard-boiled were offered before we finally gave up. The wait staff were attentive, diligent, professional and truly apologetic. The deficiency was in the kitchen.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Rmac66 Bedding not changed from previous guest
I had the disturbing experience to crawl into my bed last night only to have sheets and a comforter with the strong smell of a previous guest cologne. It was unsettling to know the bedding had not been changed.
I raised it to the front desk and the manager and have had no reply and still waiting a day after. I did finally request a different room after I was given a different comforter without a cover and no new sheets (and the expectation I would make the bed myself)
I love SPG and their hotels but this is not the first problem at this property. Be cautious!

Rated 5 out of 5 by webber1177 Staff is excellent
This is our 10th stay at the Prince and Lidja normally takes care of us. Clara more than filled her shoes and the entire front desk staff was beyond excellent. Leroy, Ernie and Steve were their congenial best.
Only the menu and food at the coffee shop still needs improvement.
We will certainly stay with you on our next trip to Toronto..

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kat67 This hotel has great service
My son and I stayed at this hotel so that we could visit the Ontario Science Centre and the Toronto Zoo. We previously have stayed at Westin Hotels and have had good experience.
Staff were great...friendly and very helpful.
Anything we requested, they accommodated. First time we used valet parking and bellboys were great. I would highly recommend this service. It was so much easier with my 4 year old to have our car ready at the door when we were heading out. Our room was pretty basic and it was sufficient for what we needed for a couple of nights. We did request a microwave and a bigger fridge which we did end up getting however I feel that all rooms should come with these small amenities esp. for those who travel with small children. Hotel was conveniently located just minutes from Science Centre but also from drugstore, bank and grocery store. I thought that was nice and handy. Hotel only has an outdoor pool which was nice because it was August but I probably wouldn't stay in the winter because there isn't an indoor one. I also didn't find much of a games room or anything to do in the hotel with a young child...again not an issue for us because we were there to see the Zoo and Science Ctre anyways. Overall, hotel was clean, friendly staff and very accomodating.

Rated 1 out of 5 by paball Mistakes made
What looks to be a beautiful property, just did not live up to our needs. It was our 20th anniversary and sadly our room did not work out.
Everything was fine until the first of two nights. The room temp said it was going down to 60, but it was very warm and we could not sleep. I informed the staff and had a card in the room that said they fixed the problem. The 2nd night was worse. Very warm and had a very hard time sleeping. After the first day our room was never cleaned. I asked a maid in the hall and she said that her shift was over. We went out to dinner and when we got back the room was half cleaned. No towels. I called for towels and they never arrived. I called the next morning and it took 30+ minutes.
For a hotel of this caliber, these mistakes and problems should not occur. Pretty sure our 40th will not be there.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Missbean This Hotel has the great views
The Westin Prince Toronto, located in north east side of Toronto, is quite easy to access to Downtown or whereever in Toronto. With the great views, the hotel was quite and clean. One thing what I was not satisfied is the housekeeping service with a slow and a lack of communications.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ok007 Not as good as previous stays
We've stayed at this hotel quite a few times but the last 2 stays have been disappointing. The lobby is nice but the rooms are just average. | was expecting more from a "deluxe" room. My husband woke up with a sore neck from the pillows. There was plenty of parking. Some of the staff were excellent and some others seemed distracted.

We were satisfied during our short stay at Westin Prince Toronto, as the environment within and without the hotel was beautiful and very nicely maintained, the room was clean and pleasant, and the personnel at the front desk and for the service was kind and very helpful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by garrett1 Relaxing Property
We were very happy with our stay. The room was a bit dated (wallpaper) but the bed was excellent and the room had modern amenities. The property is gorgeous and relaxing. A great place to relax and feel you got away from it all in the midst of Toronto. You are literally 20 minutes from downtown.
The main restaurant looked great as does the lobby. Parking is pay here both self and valet. Concerns here are with the the pool. You have a major Carpenter Ant problem. You also have a signage problem getting to the pool that needs to be corrected. The room service at the pool is also a problem. I gave up on my drink order on Saturday.

I recently had to travel on business on the day of my birthday. I was pleasantly surprised to find in my room, a bottle of chilled white wine, a fruit tray and lovely card signed by the Front Desk Staff, wishing me happy birthday. What a lovely and very thoughtful thing to do. Even though I had to be away from home, it was touching to have my birthday recognized by the staff at the Prince. Thank you so very much.

Rated 3 out of 5 by J5542 Uncomfortable temperature
This hotel was uncomfortable in all the common areas. The temperature was stifling.
The bar, the restaurant, the meeting rooms where all very hot. The bar was so hot I was sweating. So I just left. The picture quality on the TV is a joke, it was like they where using rabbit ears for the signal. Most unpleasant stay due to lack of air conditioning.
