Choosing A Hotel in Windsor
Quick Summary of Most Popular Areas
Downtown Windsor: home to the Windsor Casino, there really isn't anywhere else in Windsor you'd want to stay
Windsor Casino: in the heart of the city's core and overlooks downtown Detroit
Windsor Airport: slightly removed from the downtown area, only stay in these hotels if you absolutely need to be close to the airport, otherwise downtown is a better option
What Windsor is all about
Being the southern most city and closest spot to the equator in Canada, Windsor is a tropical paradise full of white sandy beaches and Caribbean fun...NOT. Windsor is not a typical tourist destination unless you are passing through on your way to the US or you're on a business trip or visiting family. And that's okay, Windsor, not all cities have to be bustling tourist hot spots, so don't have a cow. If you are in Windsor and need to overnight I would recommend staying downtown. The majority of the conveniences associated with a city are found in the core. In addition you will be close to the Windsor Casino, which overlooks downtown Detroit across the water (Detroit across the water at night can be quite scenic...Detroit and scenic mentioned in the same sentence, I know eh...).
Where to stay besides downtown
If you want to save a bit of money and need to fly in and out of the city you have a few hotel options near Windsor Airport. These hotels are a bit out of the way from the downtown core (about a 20 minute drive), however they serve a purpose of convenience especially for travellers only looking to overnight.
