6/10 Good

Great staff but the pool is tiny!!
The pool is the size of a bathtub. Having stayed at Fairmont for 4 nights then moving to Windsor California was a shock to the system and understandably so. Staff were friendly and great, however the hotel itself is just not the same.

10/10 Exceptional

We loved our stay at the windsor california. It was located in a very safe area, and had great access links to all of the tourist hotspots. The staff were amazing and very friendly, especially Jonaton and Leonard. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Breakfast was delicious. Rooms were very clean. Rooftop pool/view was amazing.

8/10 Very good

Excellent property, service, & view. However, there was a deposit of $180 usd when we arrived, guests aren’t allowed up, and breakfast wasn’t included. The staff was very friendly & professional.
