The Valet parking was great. We got a suite and that was great. They had a shuttle to our event for free….also great. This would have been a 5 star stay except for their rotten restaurant. It was busy, but not packed. My friend and I sat at the bar and it took 20 min for them to clear the... More

I have travelled my entire life for various reasons and had always stayed in the cheapest hotel I could find. Now that I am graduated and have a steady job I decided that while in town for a concert I would spring for a nice hotel. I was very impressed and after my stay did not feel guilty about spending...

we went to see the red wings play. The Joe Louis was just a walk away but they still gave the option of being shuttled to the game. The round bar was nice. The rooms were spectacular for the price of the room. We have already recommended this hotel to several people that frequent detroit from our city oof Sault... More

We got in late so I didn't have time to check out the entire room. The next morning I saw the lint, food, strings, dirt and stains throughout the rooms carpeting. We just slept in this room! When we checked out I told the front desk about the problem. Their response? 'I'll have to tell housekeeping about that.' Not 'Sorry... More

Detroit continues to be a city with a number of challenges as it navigates it's revitalization. I had a great time in the city and at this property. I had the unfortunate incident of my car being broken into while exploring the city. The staff at the hotel were kind enough to offer me cardboard boxes and tape when I... More

We were there for an NHL game with the kids. Great location and short walk. Unfortunately our room was not very clean. Gross in some respects. Stains on the carpet and the dried liquids splashed on the dressers etc. There was make-up on the mirror in the bathroom and the Hair Dryer was covered in Make-up. Other aspects of the... More

I cannot say one bad thing about this hotel. We went to the circle bar and the kitchen restaurant. Both were excellent. Our room was clean and very comfortable. Loved the fact that they had a shuttle van that we could take to and from events.

Stayed at this hotel over Valentine's Day in the 2 bedroom king suite - very spacious, clean and comfortable. The complimentary shuttle to Joe Louis Arena was great for catching the Red Wings game and a few people stayed on the shuttle to go to the casino. Overall, a great stay!

This was a repeat stay at the Doubletree Fort Shelby. The location is ideal for all events and locations in the downtown area. The staff is professional and polite. The rooms clean and surprisingly quiet. An great value and a great experience.
