Although my stay was short, I was very happy with my experience. I couldn't have been happier with my accommodations. The room was ENORMOUS, clean and very comfortable. I had an end unit with windows on the side and along the entire length of my room - so nice!! The girl who handled my check-in was very friendly and the... More

Everything is top notch at this hotel. Clean rooms, clean bathroom, and staff is really friendly. I really enjoyed the restaurant as well (had the blackened salmon every night I was there). No complaints at all!

Typically the Doubletree brand is excellent. This is why I chose to bring my family to this hotel for the Detroit Autoshow. This hotel room was filthy, stained floor, dusty/dirty surfaces, pull-out bed was falling apart, stained, and not made up. I felt dirty after touching any surface in this room. Bedding in bedroom leaked feathers all over the room... More

We were in town for a Red Wings game and booked at the Doubletree due to its proximity to the arena. I'm generally a Starwood hotels person but I was fairly impressed with the Doubletree. The staff really made this experience what it was. The room was a two room suite but nothing special (the King suite and it was... More

Room type was not correct for day 1. For day 2 room was changed promptly and was satisfactory. The Bar/Restaurant service was very slow!!! I had to wait seems like forever for service. The bar maid was very slow and never around regardless if busy or not. BTW, the Sushi was great!!!! Tasty and inexpensive!

Plus : very central, big rooms, clean, excellent beds Minus : poor to very poor service (30 minutes of fight for a bottle a water!). A mess at check-in. No efficient help for food, shuttle or anything needed.

We stayed for 1 night at this hotel, we chose it because we were in town for a concert and it was close to the venue (Joe Louis Arena). Here’s the summary: Check-in was very easy. We pulled up to the hotel and the valet parked the car. The front desk clerk gave us all cookies (nice touch but beware... More

We had a Very pleasant stay here. The hotel was Very quiet at night and the staff went above and beyond to make our experience special. Also, the local shuttle service was a nice bonus as we were unfamiliar with the area.

This is one of the cleanest hotels I've ever stayed in. The rooms are huge and the staff is very accommodating! The lobby is gorgeous. The shuttle can take you anywhere you need to go. I will definitely be back!
