Rated 5 out of 5 by Pedroboy Lovely setting
A great hotel in a lovely green setting - hard to believe that you are in the middle of a metropolitan city! We even saw a deer from the restaurant window! Only drawback is that you need a car to get to anything you may want to visit, but it is certainly a more restful environment than downtown TO. Very close to the 401 and the Don Valley Parkway which can be a great asset depending on your reasons for being in Toronto.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ben79 Stunning Lobby, but thats where it stops.
The hotel is appealing when the lobby is considered. But once you enter the rooms that is where everything stops.
The room that we stayed in at this hotel is in dire need of either a renovation or lots of touch ups.
Paint peeling in the washroom, grimmy feeling carpets, "balcony" that you can not go on to littered with bird droppings and cigarette butts.
Overall not pleased with the room when compared to the price.

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 5 out of 5 by Tazzy32 Birthday away from Home
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 2 out of 5 by JaneH needs improvement
Upon check-in, there were 3 people behind the counter and 2 guest including myself in front. Yet I was made to wait 10 minutes without acknowledgment while 2 'service' people talked to themselves and the other was serving a guest but disappeared without a word.
In the room the drain hole was unscrewed which made taking a bath a challenge and afterwards the faucet leaked and made dripping noises all night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Debi57 Overall comfort good
The location, rooms, food, bar, gift shop for snacks was all great. The hotel lobby is very pleasant and the staff was great. The only issue I had was having to pay for Wifi. We drove from St. Louis to Toronto and back stopping at hotels in Niagara Falls, Indianapolis (2 different hotel chains) and Cleveland and they ALL had free Wifi...seems like nickel and diming guests for $10 a day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Travelbug8 Best hotel staff in North America
The staff at the Westin Prince are the gold standard for all other hotels (including some Starwood Properties) to achieve. Service is prompt, friendly and, personable. When you are away from home, to have a hotel staff member remember you from 2+ years ago, goes a long way to providing "comfort". Keep up the great work.
Only suggestion I would make is that the lighting in the rooms is not bright enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sam7437 room
Lone female traveller and you put me at the end of a hallway near a set of stairs. The security lock on the door was broken and therefore wouldn't work.
Door to balcony wouldn't open wide enough to access the balcony.
Received the corporate rate for the room and wouldn't pay the full price for it. Unfortunately, I expected a lot more from the name, perhaps this was unrealistic.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Roger Beautiful hotel but Internet fees are a thing of the past.
Overall I like this hotel and gave stayed a few times in the past. I was surprised that there was a few for Internet use in a time where wifi is accessible almost everywhere. Then I heard from a colleague that if you are a SPG member there are no fees. If this is true, it was not mentioned to me. In fact when I asked one colleague if she was told about an Internet fee, she said she wasn't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BillieC Outstanding in Accommodating Customer Needs
I love EVERYTHING about The Westin Prince. The environment both inside and outside the hotel is beautiful and very pleasant to just walk around. What impresses me the most is the helpfulness & friendliness of ALL the front desk staff. You never see them without a smile.
The Westin Prince is excellent in accommodating customer needs. When I called front desk and requested a bed board for my back problem, Joseph told me that the hotel doesn't have one currently but he would definitely find one for me. And surely he did. And it was all set up well before I checked in. The 2 nights stay at Westin Prince was one of the best travelling experiences I have ever had. Thanks to the bed board, which Joseph made an extra effort to obtain it for me, I had 2 pain free nights so I was able to go on doing my business normally during the day and accomplished everything I had planned. Thank you Joseph so very much.

Rated 2 out of 5 by wongjc82 This Hotel
When I checked in with my boyfriend, the concierge didn't ask for my id and he spelled my last name wrong. I didn't find out until I had to get a new room card which wasn't working. I provided my id which did not match the name on their computer system. I spoke to 2 staff before there was a security who escorted me to my room to confirm my belongings and id. I felt like a criminal!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mrjoy Wifi is TERRIBLE for the price
The title says it all. I've stayed here four times traveling for business. While the gym is great ans the staff is friendly the wifi Internet access is completely awful. Paying nearly $6 per hour oe $9 per day it's unacceptable that the connection drops depending on where you move in the room. It makes it nearly impossible to do any work from your room. I hope that you can fix this

Rated 5 out of 5 by busytraveller Best Starwood property in Toronto
I am a frequent traveler and have been gold or platinum with starwood for the last 15 years. I have seen lots of good and bad service at hotels over the years. The Prince stands out as one of the best, your team exceeded my expectations and really enhanced and personalized our stay.
The Prince is without a doubt the best Starwood property in Toronto and possibly in all of Canada.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Max192 No Free Wi Fi
I have stayedat this hotel more than 10 times in the past. In the past there was free access to WiFi to check e-mails in the lobby. I was most disappointed to discover that this amenity is no longer offered. It is a small convenience for a guest who does not need to get internet access for a full day. In future I may stay elsewhere, That is a pity and a poor management decision.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RickD5 Westin takes care of its customers
I found your staff to be most accomodating and helpful during my recent stay. I had some personal issues on arrival that would not let me check in, but Jennifer helped me find a remedy and put my mind at ease.
The rooms are very nice and also clean and comfortable. The greenery around your facility makes it more inviting than the hotels in downtown Toronto. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Denyb AWSOME SHOWER!!
Very clean with excellent staffing. And for all of you travelers who know just how much a good shower is needed to start the morning, this was, without a doubt, the absolute BEST shower I have EVER had in my years of travel. I didn't want to come out.
I was not able to partake in the lounge\dining area this visit but will be sure to do so on my next visit.
A 10+ on my scale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by marmar Beautiful hotel and exceptional staff
We stayed at the Westin Prince while my father was recovering from surgery at a nearby hospital. It was our home away from home, and the staff could not have impressed me more. The only thing that could have made our stay better would be an indoor pool. Jennifer at the front desk and George in the dining room deserve a special mention for outstanding service. Thanks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Plymouth Quiet Oasis in North York
The Prince offers quiet and very comfortable accomodations if you need to be in North York for business or pleasure. Rooms are recently refurbished and provide spacious, comfortable accomodations. Workout facilities are very good. Hotel restaurant is fairly priced, offering a nice breakfast buffet selection. Parking is steep at $12 for a suburban location.

I love the Starwood Group hotels. I was thrilled when there was a Westin near the locations for my most recent business trip. From Check-in to dining to the heavenly beds, everything was wonderful. I loved the decor and the cleanliness. I will definitely stay here again on future trips.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Grannie70 Good begiinnings
It's a fine idea to issue a $5 gift card for agreeing to no housekeeping for a day. I would prefer to have the room tidied, with the same sheets being used. Even that should save the hotel at least $5.
The printed cards are a discreet ecological green, but are hard to read. A deeper ink is needed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shaggy Fine hotel except for dining room
Very friendly hotel with good rooms. The dining room is mediocre at best. The menu states that you should let the staff know if you would like a different preparation. Wow! You can't even get hash brown potatoes at breakfast if you request them. The dining menu tries to be elegant and up to date, but doesn't even meet good normal food standards.

We were very happy with our stay. The hotel is very nice, clean and comfortable. It is close to everywhere with ample parking space.
The staff are very friendly and always there to help ( thank you Joseph).
Some say the hotel is a bit far from Downtown, it's really not. The hotel is centrally located close to everywhere.

Rated 3 out of 5 by gem55 sliding door
I have alerted front desk about the "defective" lock of the sliding on the day my wife & I checked in.
While, it was addressed immediately, however, the sliding glass door became permanently locked, depraving the "walk out" feature of the sliding door.
Other than the above, everything is good...courteous/efficient staff.

I was so disapponted with our return to the Prince Hotel. We were given room 508, a very dark room with little natural light. I noticed dishes in the corridor on Saturday am. They were still there on Sunday. Our room was never made up, we asked gor mire coffee creams and they were literally tossed in our room. I could tell you more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Hoosier1 Westin Toronto
The staff at the front desk were overwhelmed at checkin and I needed to run 3 different crredit cards before they could figure out how to get one to work. After calling my credit card company i found out it was the folks at the front desk that had the problem not my card. Then it was a big struggle to change the bill to my corporate card.

Loved our stay at the Westin Prince and we will definitely be back again soon! The staff were lovely, very polite and extremely accommodating. Our agent Joseph provided us with a corner room overlooking the city and CN Tower. The staff went above and beyond and created a positive memorable customer experience! Thank you Westin Prince :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Keepongoing Excellent long term stay
With our house under repair , we spent almost 4 weeks at the Westin Prince. It felt like a "home from home" with a comfortable room and excellent service. All staff were exceedingly pleasant and helpful. This hotel has been part of our lives for over 30 years and we will continue to enjoy the facilities, specially on family occasions.

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.
