Destination of the Day: Caesars Windsor Hotel & Casino, Windsor, ON

Destination 3 in the series "Mint on the Pillow"

One of five casinos in the Detroit and Windsor metro areas, this temple of gambling stands in stark contrast to the many poorly configured attempts elsewhere in the Great Lakes region.  It helps that it is land-based and, unlike others, is not completely isolated from its surroundings.  Many of the rooms enjoy skyline views of Detroit and the Detroit River.  Unfortunately Windsor has not be able to completely capitalize on the influx of visitors and some of the attractions are subpar when compared to like-sized cities.  Windsor-side attractions include the Chrysler Theatre, Canadian Club Brand Center, and the Art Gallery of Windsor.    A bus company does offer transportation between Windsor and Detroit.
