WINDSOR, ONT. — The former Waterfront Hotel Downtown Windsor officially rebranded as Best Western Plus Waterfont Hotel at a gala reception held earlier this month and attended by prominent city leaders, senior executives from the Windsor area and travel influencers from local sporting, travel and event planning companies.
“We are pleased to have completed significant hotel upgrades to guestrooms and public areas and to welcome Best Western Plus, a new brand to Vrancor Group’s portfolio,” said Darko Vranich, CEO and president, Vrancor Group, and co-owner of Best Western Plus Waterfront Hotel.
Best Western Plus Waterfront provides views of the Detroit River and skyline from each of 305 guestrooms, and is the anchor hotel to St. Clair College Centre for the Arts, with combined banquet and meeting space of more than 30,000 square feet, plus the 1,200-seat Chrysler Theatre. In addition, the two organizations have joined forces to market their facilities under one roof, providing an enhanced option to host meetings, conventions and events.
“With an unparalleled location on the Windsor waterfront, close to top restaurants, attractions and both Tunnels and the Ambassador bridge to Detroit, the hotel is a perfect choice for guests who are happy to spend more on an enhanced stary, but who still expect an appealing price point from a brand they have always counted on to deliver exceptional value,” said Ron Pohl, senior vice-president of brand management, Best Western Hotels and Resorts.
Extensive property-wide renovations have modernized guestrooms and public areas, including the lobby, which now features a contemporary look, completed with fireplace and lounge-style seating areas that overlook Dieppe Gardens and waterfront walking trails.
Guestrooms feature mini-refrigerators, 42-inch LCD flat-screen TVs, work desks and pod coffee and tea makers. A full hot breakfast buffet is included with every stay. Other amenities include fitness centre, large pool, laundry services, complimentary upgraded WiFi throughout and a new business centre.
With the addition of Best Western Plus, visitors to Windsor can now collect Best Western Rewards.
