Windsor Attractions & Events


BEST WESTERN lus Waterfront Hotel is centrally located on the shores of the Detroit River, in the heart of Windsor’s downtown riverfront neighbourhood.

The city’s best dining, nightlife and scenic waterfront parks are just moments from our doorstep, and we’re very near Caesars Windsor Casino, too – it’s only a 5-minute stroll along the beautiful waterfront trail. Our property is also directly interconnected to the St. Clair College Centre for the Arts and steps from the Adventure Bay Family Waterpark!

Looking for a change of scenery? Head over the river to Detroit, Michigan, and catch a Lions game at Ford Field, the Tigers at Comerica Park or learn about automobile history at the Henry Ford Museum. Be sure to stop by the Detroit Institute of Arts, home to one of the largest art collections in the United States. Guests can quickly cross the border via the Ambassador Bridge or Detroit Windsor Tunnel, both less than 5 kilometers away.

Whether you prefer to wander through Rose Gardens on the riverfront, soak up local culture at The Art Gallery of Windsor or explore Black History at the North American Black Historical Museum, it’s all at your fingertips when you stay at BEST WESTERN Plus Waterfront Hotel.
