This hotel is very nice, wonderful location and beautifully decorated for the holiday. The ladies at the front desk were very helpful. While standing at the front desk I noticed they had taken the time to print out weeks/monthly events of the city as well as local eateries. Across the street from the Renaissance center. The people mover is across... More

We spent two nights here and everything was perfect! From the moment we arrived through our departure! We were on the 17th floor and had a great view of Belle Isle, the Detroit River and the city. The room was spotless, the staff helpful and friendly. We had a late dinner in the hotel restaurant and it was very good.... More

Definitely did not represent the brand from an aesthetic perspective but we had a great stay overall. Cleanliness and upkeep was a problem evident in all areas of the property. I am sick today I am sure from the very cool temp in pool area with evident air leaks. The property was secure, the staff very attentive special kudos to... More

We were in room 1621 one night, Nov. 23, 2014. I paid $217.35. MY DAUGHTER GOT BED BUG BITES! See photo enclosed. I hope that room is THOROUGHLY fumigated. DISGUSTING! We were really really disapointed in the standard of cleanliness at this Courtyard.

Given the Detroit International Marathon I'd expected a bit of chaos only to be met with none. The location was perfect. I wish I could remember the name of the young lady at the front desk who serviced me. I asked for a nice room with a view (if available) and she came thru wonderfully. The view from my window...

We stayed in the hotel from Thursday night until Sunday morning, and the staff were nothing but accommodating and polite! There was one employee in particular that helped us out so much when we were checking out during the rush, and even with our checkout at noon, with his help, all of our stuff was in bagge check-in and in...

The only positive thing about this hotel is the great view. They are overpriced compared to the surrounding hotels. Their dine in restaurant is what sent me over to write this review. Not only was the food terrible but my friend found a dead bug in his soda and I found hair in my sandwhich. Please if you value your... More

Nice location,in the Ren Cen (as the locals call it) nice people, and convenient to the people mover. The rooms are tired , but clean. The bar was quite active (loud too) and self parking was quite easy too. Not nearly as upscale as I expected for the price.

Our hotel is located in the Millender Center directly across the street from the Renaissance Center, but we are attached by a pedestrian walkway over Jefferson Avenue. We are also conveniently located on the People Mover route,... More

This was a very comfortable stay for a long 10-day meeting. There is ample space to move around the room, a decent closet, and large and comfortable bathroom. The breakfast is good, although I usually saved money and bought snacks (yogurt, cheese, granola bars, bananas) at the convenience/liquor store downstairs just outside the hotel. The hotel is easy walking distance... More

Wow! I haven't been in a downtown hotel room this big in years! Really appreciated the large bathroom with extra-long counter. We stayed in a queen double and had tons of room to spread out. Front desk staff was very pleasant and helpful. Room was clean and quiet. I would definitely stay again.

Dear Mary, I’m glad you enjoyed the accommodations. We really appreciate reviews mentioning our large guest rooms and extra-long bathroom counters. To your point, the size of our guest rooms allows us to provide two Queen beds versus the standard two Doubles. Regards! Jon C – General Manager More
