So the view from my room is outstanding amazing spectacular wow!!! They are renovating and from What I can tell the changes are great! The price point is great! The only down fall is the parking situation. It is a parking garage one street behind the hotel. The parking garage is shady and a little scary after dark specifically. Once... More

Stayed at this hotel for one night for my daughter's gymnastics competition. They did not have the double bed room that we booked since we checked in quite late. Therefore, my daughter ended up with her own queen bed room, which she was thrilled about. The view out of the rooms is very nice. The bed was very comfortable. I... More

We stayed in this hotel on April 10/15. We booked a" panoramic view"room. We arrived and the lobby was a bit of a mess because of renovations but usable.

This is the 2nd time in the last year I stayed at this hotel. Rooms are clean and quite dated. Beds are comfortable to sleep in. View of Detroit is 1st class. It is a nice property but requires and deservees an update.

Although the Hotel is under construction, giving it a much needed face lift, it did not take away from the comfort of my stay. My Business Partner and I booked two Rooms with King beds. The beds were very comfortable, which was very welcomed at the end of a very busy day. Housecleaning was very accommodating and friendly. The desk... More

This hotel is situated along the Detroit River and has outstanding views of Detroit's skyline. It also has a boardwalk that is just across the street. It's a great way to get out and get some air whether you want to walk, run, or just hang-out. The proximity to restaurants, bars, pubs, and the casino make it a place where... More

We stayed at the Waterfront Hotel for our trip to Windsor in February. The location is conveniently downtown and close to most of the major restaurants. Our room was clean, spacious and recently updated. Parking is available but is slightly inconvenient as it is located a block away. The best thing about the Waterfront Hotel is the view!
