I spent two nights for business, the room was decent, there were just a couple of issues. I realize as I write this that I should have contacted the front desk in regards to the issues, so they would have an opportunity to correct them, so take this for whatever it's worth to you. The thermostat in the room did... More

Great stay. You definitely won't waste your money here. One of my favorite hotels to stay when I'm in town. Clean rooms, clean lobby, nice staff, but parking could be better. My room was up to standard & my bed was really soft. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends

A small group of us stayed here for business the first week of April. For most of us, it was the first visit to Detroit. Though it was packed with business and we didn't have any free time, I enjoyed the visit. Every staff member I encountered was fabulous...very friendly, accommodating and engaged. Best shoe shine I have ever had!... More

Lcation location, location. My goodness, what a difference a couple of blocks makes in location. This hotel is located in downtown Detroit, however, it is located on Lafayette about two blocks from anything happening and it feels desolate and alone hanging out here. The upside is that is only a block and a bit from the People Mover which, for... More

the people were excellent. After a long stay for work they were always welcoming and helpful. Hotel is a remodeled older building two blocks from the Convention Center. Rooms are big and well appointed. They need a little more care as furniture was getting a little beat up. I would recommend it very business travelers for sure.

Great value hotel if visiting COBO centre three blocks away. Room furnishings a little dated, though rooms ARE spacious suites, very comfortable and certainly clean. Buffet breakfast is ample and staff attentive without being intrusive. I would definitely stay again.

I recommend this hotel for anyone who wants to stay in Detroit. The rooms are large and roomy. The rooms are very clean and quiet. I never heard any noise coming from another room or from the hallway. This hotel is now my first choice to stay at while in Detroit. The staff was very friendly.

My boyfriend and I stayed and the hotel itself was very nice, but the service overall was BAD. The in room movie service did not work. We called the front desk but it wasn't able to be fixed. One of the telephones did not work. We also did not have our room cleaned during the stay. Worst -was the valet-it... More

I've stayed at DoubleTree hotels numerous times so I am familiar with the layout of the rooms...or so I thought. My guests and I were in complete awe of the rooms size and layout. We had a great stay and are returning in 3 weeks and staying in the same hotel.

We stayed at this hotel with a group of friends and we all had an excellent stay! The rooms were bright and clean. The beds were comfortable. The front desk staff were very nice and friendly as well. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back the next time we are in Detroit!
