Best Western Introduces Waterfront Hotel

The former Waterfront Hotel Downtown Windsor officially joined Best Western. Rebranded as Best Western PLUS Waterfront Hotel, the property now offers a new branded identity, upgraded amenities, and a brand new look.

“We are pleased to have completed significant hotel upgrades to guestrooms and all 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. “It’s exciting to become part of the biggest hotel family in the world, with more than 4,100 hotels in more than 100 countries worldwide.”

The southernmost city in Canada, Windsor, Ontario, has a population of 211,000 and is home to Windsor International Airport. With one of Canada’s largest casinos, a well established wine region in nearby Essex County, the new Windsor International Aquatic and Training Centre, and Detroit, Michigan, U.S.A. a short drive away, Windsor is a tourist hub with plenty of activities, shopping, and fine dining.
