This hotel is clean and the rooms are big, however, there is no bar fridge and the choices for breakfast is limited. There is no microwave and parking is not included. We had to pay extra for breakfast for our children and again the choices were limited.

Booked two suites for a business convention 3 months in advance and then two months later they emailed me saying that they basically 'screwed up the reservations and cancelled both rooms, thanks!' At this point all other hotels downtown are full up and we're not sure how we're going to be able to attend the convention. I was supposed to... More

Compared to other hotels in the area the price was right and the room was very large and clean. Loved the mini fridge. The cookies were fantastic. Loved the large fitness center and also the noon check out time.

My overnight stay at the Hilton Doubletree in Detroit was excellent. Prompt check in and check out and the room was fantastic. The location was perfect for getting around the city with the tram just a block away.

This hotel and staff provided an excellent experience during my 3 day stay. I am eager to return to Detroit and to this hotel! The rooms were attractive, very roomy and comfortable. We spent two relaxing evenings enjoying the fitness center and the hot tub and take out food from the bar. This was an excellent location for the conference... More

I booked 3 rooms for my annual boys weekend trip. This year we decided to do Detroit (4.5 hours away, this come in handy later in my review). Had a grey time. 2 of the 3 rooms were ready when we checked in and I was told to come and get the keys to the 3rd room later. Fast forward... More

I'm not sure I could afford somewhere like the Doubletree in any other city, but this was a very good hotel by any standards. The room was very big, with a nice double bed, separate bathroom and separate 'lounge' area. The room was also very quiet, which is perhaps the most important aspect for me when travelling. It is situated... More

I was part of a group of about 150 people that pretty much took over the hotel for a conference. We had all of the meeting rooms on the second floor, including the smallish but very nice and historic looking banquet room. The food was excellent and varied and their banquet services people were helpful and friendly. There were plenty... More

I think this is the first time that a hotel room has looked even better than the website photos! We were very pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and comfort of our room. Our 3 night stay experience was great...excellent value, too.
