We stayed in this hotel for two nights and it was wonderful. We had a suite so we could fit 6 people comfortably. We walked from here to dinner and to a concert and never felt unsafe. I will stay here again! Perfect location!

I went there with normal expectations for Detroit. The hotel is ok but nothing overwhelming. Location is fine, 5 minutes away from the main area downtown. Surrounded by many parking spot and the convention center. But those parking spots were not clear if had any attendants so we had to use the valet for 27$ per day. And they were... More

Stayed for one night to attend a concert at Ford Field. Got off to a good start with a room upgrade to a great corner suite with a view of the Detroit river and bridge to Canada. (Thanks Larry!) Hotel is within walking distance of Ford Field, took about 15 minutes to walk. Upgraded suite was great, just wish we... More

I stayed here for six nights for a convention. The hotel is fairly new in a historic old building. The suites have a door that separates the living room and bedroom, so there are two TVs and a nice sofa with pull-out couch. The hotel shuttle is a huge benefit, but it's not too far to walk anywhere downtown. I... More

The suite we booked for the night had plenty of room for us during our stay in Detroit. The two televisions were a nice touch, as my wife was putting my daughter to sleep I could still watch SportsCenter. We had breakfast sent up to the room in the morning, and although it was a little pricey, it wasn't too... More

A group of 6 women stayed here for a girls night out. We had a suite with 2 beds and a pull out. The pullout was surprisingly comfortable. Even with 2 people in it!

We were passing through town just to go a Tigers game. This place was perfect, with a free shuttle to and from the game (you could walk), a spacious corner room with king bed, and friendly service at the front desk. The interior of the place is very nice as well, with a Starbucks in the lobby, which was perfect... More

From check-in, service was great. We got a rate that included free valet & free buffet breakfast. A great deal. The hotel was close to the people mover and a really cool used & rare bookstore.
