We stayed here for the Eminem concert at Comerica park. The location was perfect. Plenty close enough to walk and feel safe. The check in was fast and easy and the staff was friendly. They have a complimentary shuttle that took us to the Detroit Art Institute and picked us up. Check out Green Dot Stables and Lafayette Coney Island... More

Stayed here for a conference. The hotel is smack down town Detroit across from Channel 4 local TV. The staff was excellent very accomodating, the hotel was updated and clean and the work out facility was better than most. Hotel offered a free hotel shuttle within a 5 mile radius of the hotel. I'd recommend staying here and I'd recommned... More

Had great time here, albeit for one night. The front desk was very accommodating to us, and the room was large, and had nice view. Was short walk to Comerica, so location was good, too. Staff was great in brining up extra towels and such. Only negative is I wish they had pool, and were closer to Greektown. Outside of... More

Hotel is very nice. Lobby very comfortable, inviting, and clean. Small juice bar in lobby and real bar/restaurant also. All employees that we dealt with were excellent and provided outstanding customer service. Front desk staff was very accommodating and answered our questions, even gave tips on ways to get around and best options to the ball game. Housekeeping quickly brought... More

This hotel was clean, comfortable, conveniently located, with a very courteous staff! Housekeeping quickly brought us extra towels when we asked. The valet service was very good. Never had to wait for our car provided we called ahead at least 10 minutes. Hotel rooms were also very quiet. We were there the night of a big concert in town and... More

Regardless of my requests; from shuttle service, local dining facilities, valet service or local directions, the staff were quickly willing to provide me the answers and assistance without acting like it was a burden to them. I appreciate the ease in which they responded and made my stay most comfortable. They have well trained and caring individuals available and willing... More

Went to Detroit to see One Direction concert. Stay was great. Rate of room went up because of this special event (as rates usually do). Base price went from $189 to $259 after taxes, fees and valet parking were all added to the cost. The hotel does not offer a restaurant. There is a small "to go" area that is... More

Not many people go to downtown Detroit and would expect a luxury hotel at a reasonable cost. The staff was wonderful. The valets were friendly. Access to Comerica Park was perfect. Walking distance to some really neat places and restaurants.

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.
