I usually stay at Hilton locations but was not impressed with the Detroit Doubletree. We got the Romance package and had to call three times to get our bottle of wine. When calling the front desk, I had to call four to five times and let it ring forever to get someone to answer it. Also, there were hairs all... More

We stayed for a local event and were very pleased with the service we received. Valet took care of the car and helped with our bags. Check in was seamless and our room was larger and more than I expected. Every one (staff) we encountered were pleasant and accommodating. If we go back to Detroit, this is where we'll stay!... More

The Double Tree in Detroit is easy to get to and is within easy access to all the major venues in the city. The staff members are friendly and professional, the rooms are immaculate and comfortable and our experience was delightful. They provided the retreat we needed.

We traveled to Detroit to participate in a 5k. The suites were great as there were 6 of us and we could visit in the living room space and everything was very spacious and clean. The shuttle took us to dinner and was very prompt in picking us up for our return. All staff were very pleasant.

The hotel was very nice and a perfect location to participate in the Cocoa Classic race. I was not aware until I arrived that your only parking options was were park at your own risk in nearby parking garages or pay the $25 for valet parking. I chose the valet parking and while I was sitting in the bar that... More

This is a very nice hotel with helpful and friendly people. The rooms are spacious and well taken care of. Mine was a two room Suite that is perfect for business travel.

Everything was about as good as it could be from the courteous helpful check-in to the large suite, breakfast and valet parking. Had dinner in the sports bar one night and the restaurant one night. Same menu but much quieter in the restaurant. Very busy with Tigers opening day and hockey games. This made the valet parking a little slow... More

This hotel is good value for money, with nice and well equipped rooms and friendly staff. But for me best of all is that the hotel is located at the former Fort Shelby Hotel, which has been abandoned for years (like many Detroit buildings) but instead of being demolished has been carefully restorated. It just adds that intangible extra of... More

I am very disappointed with this hotel and the Hilton Brand. We walked into the hotel after driving 3+ hours from our home in Ohio to a room with a dirty bathroom (toilet that looked like someone who was very sick had just used it), a half drank bottle of water in the refrigerator, and a stain on the bed...

We came to Detroit for our annual April in the D. Red Wings and Tigers. We have stayed at various hotels, but this is the first time at DoubleTree. Had reservations at another hotel, but looked around and found this one was $100 less for our 2-night stay. Very happy with this choice! Close to the People Mover, valet parking,... More
