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 rk19 This hotel is a family favorite due to its convenient location in Toronto and high standards.
Excellent as usual.
One issue with our July 2014 stay, for a period, there was a distinct smell of cigarette smoke near the door / joining room door. The smell dissipated after an hour. I would have informed the front desk if it had continued.

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 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 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 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 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 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.

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 4 out of 5 by mvcboy nothing too surprised
The hotel is older than average westin hotels to some points, the noise from the fan is huge. The staff forgot to offer me enhanced room at the first time, then I have to come back for asking, so I eventually got a higher floor room without great view though.
The coffee in the restaurant is not as good as it is supposed to be.

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.

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 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.

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.

The entire staff from the front door to the front desk to the room were are so sincerely happy and helpful and friendly! The hotel is in a beautiful pocket of nature in a big city! There are lovely restaurants and shopping close by, so it's convenient for business and a break! Its a joy to stay there and be so well taken care of!

Rated 2 out of 5 Tired hotel
This hotel needs a major exhaustive renovations. Rooms are tired, facilities (outside of the nice lobby) all need a refurbishment, hallways are worn out - very disappointing that it even bears the Westin name. Location is mediocre too. Other Toronto options exist if you care for SPG points and will be far superior to this hotel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by pc8488 Average rooms
The lobby area is very nice but once you get to your room this hotel is average at best. This was the third Westiin I had stayed at this week and it was my least favorite. As a Platinum member, I would have expected to be upgraded.
The desk area in the room is very large but the bathroom is very small, especially the shower.

I have had the pleasure of staying at the Westin Prince for over a year nearly every week for business. My most significant impression is the quality of their people and the level of service that they offer their guests.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PJ14 Good Experience!
My wife and I stayed at the Westin Prince at the end of June 2014. We were immediately impressed when the hotel gave us a free upgrade to a bigger room even though we were not SPG members. This was very classy. Our request for a nice view was also taken care of as we could see the skyline well. The hotel borders acres of parklands so it is nice to see so many trees in an 'urban' area. There are several restaurants right across the street or around the corner. Parking was reasonable. The breakfast buffet at the main restaurant in the hotel (1 of 3) was impressive and pretty healthy. My only criticisms are that either one of our walls (or the ceiling) was a little thin in terms of noise, but the occupants on one side had a baby and we could hardly hear them. We were on one of the top floors and there was some kind of noise from the wind on the building. Also, there is a cost ($10) for internet (24h). However, we would come back again. Very close access to 401 expressway as well as a local hospital and several restaurants. Even has a hot tube, and also a Starbucks is within 2 blocks. Within 10 minutes of Toronto Centre for the Arts & other attractions on Yonge Street. Very good experience.
