Friendly and helpful front desk. Rooms are beautifully decorated and clean. Especially liked the coffee maker in the morning-easy to use and the coffee was excellent with real cream provided. 10-15 minute walk to centre of downtown.

I've stayed here for work for the past two days. Everyone is right on the rooms - the suites are huge! A very nice living room, comfortable bed, and a great shower. Wi-Fi seemed to work well in all areas of the hotel. Staff were very friendly, and the rooms/common areas were very clean. The fitness center does have dumbbells,... More

Stayed here while my daughter went to a concert at Ford Field. We were close enough that they walked back to the hotel. Felt safe enough that the girls (17 yrs old) could meet us about 1/2 way (Greektown). Really nice service at front desk. Wish I could remember the gentleman's name. Our room was very spacious and a good... More

This hotel is a very nice property with very clean, large suites and friendly service. We also liked the location, close to the Detroit people mover. Unfortunately, our visit was marred by two odd experiences. When we checked in, our room safe would not open. The Friday night engineer could not open it and his boss had to open it... More

All my guest enjoyed their stay accept the morning we were leaving. After a late evening all 4 of our rooms had a knock on the door at 9:am the next morning asking when we were checking out. We found this uncalled for as some were still sleeping. Checkout is not at 9:00am. We payed for a relaxing stay not... More

The staff were all very friendly & helpful, and the rooms were very nice. Didn't hear a peep out of anyone else on our floor, so very quiet but we were on the top floor so no one above us. The beds were very comfortable, and the towels were large & fluffy. One issue with our bill was resolved very... More

We were in Detroit on a Saturday night for the One Direction Concert. There was also a Tiger's home game that night. The Hotel was sold out. The staff was very courteous and helpful. When checking in, our rooms were not ready. They were turning them over as quickly as possible. We had booked two double queen suites. We were... More

My room was great, the bar was good, breakfast was pretty good. The area around the hotel is a bit rundown. If the downtown wasn't so empty I would have given it another star. I hope Detroit comes back because this hotel needs to be in a better neighborhood.

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The wait staff was very friendly and professional, the shuttle drivers were helpful and polite, the valet staff was quick and also friendly. My room was clean and always well stocked. The buttons on the remotes to the TV was difficult to change channels, but this is a small matter.
