Hotel Review: The Westin Prince Toronto

Another quick one day trip to Toronto had me staying one night, well really about 8 or so hours at the Westin Prince Hotel.

With an arrival at the hotel at 11 pm check in was quick and easy through the SPG Elite line with the agent letting me know I had been upgraded to a deluxe corner room. The suite was on the 20th floor of the main building. The lobby of the hotel was quite nice, you can tell it must have been updated recently. The 20th floor and the room, well that's a different story.

The deluxe corner that I received was spacious and afforded some nice views the surrounding area and of downtown Toronto in the distance. Of course having a Westin Heavenly bed in place, the bed was awesome like usual with Westin hotel's however the rest of the room was definitely dated and in need of an update. I liked that it was clean despite feeling like I was staying in the 1980's or early 90's hotel. The room showed quite a bit of wear and tear with big chips out of some of the furniture and the green marble bathroom counter tops in the bathroom really dated it. Probably the biggest giveaway of the age of the room (and the hotel) was the lack of plugs to power electrical devices. As you'll see in one of the photos,  the hotel has to utilize extension cords to be able to offer extra plugs. The hallways also had that dark, older feeling along with not being very clean.

Would I stay at this hotel again? Seeing that I had a meeting with a client a few minutes away I more than likely would since there are only a couple other options right in that area and based on web reviews they don't seem any better.

How about you? Have you stayed at the Westin Prince Toronto? What are your thoughts of the hotel?
