Stayed here to take in a Red Wings game. Hotel has a nice location near Cobo and the Joe and around the corner from the People Mover. Several bars nearby with the American and Lafayette Coney Island restaurants a short walk away. My room (# 827)was clean, updated and really big. The pizza I ordered from room service was standard...

The hotel's interior is clean and upscale. Some of it's guests are highly questionable. There was a fight in the parking lot, puke in front of the building, the family with 4 kids sneaking out at 2am with the comforters. Finally, there was a hooker being escorted in by two fellas.

Stayed at hotel suite and shared with my daughter's small family along with myself and husband. They both ran in the marathon which was basically footsteps away from our location! It was a nice hotel with a bar and restaurant on site and within walking distance to all the sites downtown. It was centrally located which is helpful since I... More

I deciced to stay here agian with my husband because he is a Hilton Honors Gold member and we had some extra point to use. We flew in on Tuesday night and checked in at about 1:30 am. I had reserved a king size bed but I think due to the late check in we were given a double room.... More

I booked this room for a special night as a couples getaway and they definitely did not disappoint! The room was VERY clean, there was ample space, the two tvs (one in the living room area and the other in the bedroom) were wonderful. The staff was very friendly, digital check-in was seamless, and the cookies upon arrival were delicious!... More

Was surprised at the size of our rooms. We had plenty of space to spread out and not feel claustrophobic. The rooms are also very well appointed. They are very sound-proof, as we could not here any other noise while in our room and we were near the ice machine. The staff is super friendly and helpful. This is our... More

Stayed here for the week. Breakfast was very good. The restaurant had a nice selection for the evenings. This is a business area, so a lot of the local restaurants close early. Excellent fitness room - a very good selection of equipment. Room was spacious and nicely arranged. Would most definitely stay here again if going to this area. Only... More

I had never before used the online feature where you can select the room you would like and the floor in advance. I asked for and was given a huge suite on the top floor. The people were friendly and helpful. Took taxis though when it seemed the shuttle might not be timely. And $27 for valet parking did not... More

The event started good with the dinner and staff at the hotel and went down from there. The driver that took us to Noel Nights was rude and drove crazy. When we called the hotel to pick us up it took over an hour to get 2 miles away. Our Room had one wash cloth and when we asked for... More

Decent hotel - exactly the room you would expect from a doubletree. Room is pretty clean (coffee stains on one of the toiletries and goop stain on floor) but overall okay. Room service was lacking. They didn't pick up my breakfast order on the door which luckily I discovered when I checked at the end of expected delivery time. I... More
