They truly do have great amenities here. It is very nice to get to a hotel and not have to ask for anything as it is already there. The location is perfect for downtown. The room is perfect. Having a fridge is such a perfect bonus. Good hotel front staff. But, might I throw in a suggestion, checking In at... More

Long weekend stay was great. King Suite was super clean and comfortable and the staff were very helpful. Most attractions are accessible via the people mover or a short cab ride.

First off, let me say this hotel is location is perfect for any venues at the Joe Louis Arena. My boyfriend and I stayed at the Courtyard Marriot on December 9, 2014 while we attended the Wings vs Leafs game. The PeopleMover is located right on the hotel grounds and is very convient and easy to use to get to... More

This hotel has terrible customer service. I pulled up to the front door and asked about parking. The valet driver stated there were 2 options, to valet park or just park around the corner and walk the skyway to the hotel. I chose to self-park. BAD IDEA! The ramp was huge and I could not find the skyway. I ended... More

Dear Katie, I am sorry we caused such a difficult arrival for you. It appears we did not explain the parking options very well, and our service recovery was obviously off. Your feedback will be included in our next training session for both valet and front desk associates. There is so much more we could have done to assist in... More

I booked my wife and her friends a room here so they could enjoy their night on the town while not having to worry about driving home afterwards. Their stay was excellent and the room was incredible. The staff accommodated their needs and exceeded expectation exceedingly and beyond. They acknowledged that it was a bachelorette celebration but most of all... More

Stayed for a weekend play performance. Front end staff were excellent, helpful and very much aware of the downtown area. Some initial safety concerns about downtown Detroit were quickly erased. Easy transportation around the downtown core with the people mover. One of the stops was in the hotel and for 75 cents you can't beat it. Work out area was... More

Dear Joe, We appreciate your great review, and all the details provided. Downtown Detroit has a lot to offer and it changes weekly, so it’s nice to hear we’re on our game. Besides the reasonable PeopleMover price to move around downtown, it’s hard to beat a station located in our building. It’s great for our guests and the many theaters,... More

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

Our standard is to clean the brew basket during daily housekeeping service and leave it on top the coffee maker. I will share your positive feedback with our guest service staff, especially the ladies that work the front desk. Thank you... 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.

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...

Dear CF, Thank you for recognizing our hotel’s organization during an annual event as popular as the Free Press Marathon.

Of course you don’t have to run a marathon to receive this special treatment, so we hope to see... More
