We stayed at this hotel to attend a wedding. The location is nice because of the river walk and view, but is not near anything in Detroit of interest. The hotel claims to have free wifi. We could never find the network. They claim to have a restaurant, but it is not open all the time. There is no valet,... More

This is one of the best places to stay in Detroit if you are looking for a clean, comfortable room and a central, secure location. If you are looking for trashy hype, blowhard casino culture and New York prices then this is not for you. The place is a little threadbare. Interior was badly decorated in the first place (dark,...

My partner and I were attending a concert at the Joe Louis arena (a 40 minute walk from the hotel) on June 14th. The staff were very friendly while checking us in and out (we didn’t call upon them otherwise). The view of a river was fabulous from our room and we really enjoyed spending some time walking along the... More

I wanted to like this place - the staff were very nice and the waterfront location is lovely and convenient to much of the city, with a few nice bars/restaurants within walking distance. However, the management clearly doesn't have its act together, a fact made laughably ironic by the placement of the owner's vanity autobiography for sale at the front... More

We were of a mind to love this place, the location and the staff were incredible. However the rooms were in serious need of repair and we could not understand how it made sense to cover a king size hotel bed with a thin blanket. No comforter, minimum pillows. Yeah, we just didn't get it. We stayed in the summer... More

While looking for a “Get-Away” to clear my mind of stress and concerns I decided to take a Winter Break in Detroit. When making my reservations on line for my favorite summer spot “Roberts Riverwalk Hotel”, I found the hotel did not have rooms available for certain days of my choice. One simple e-mail on their “contact information” on line... More

The beautiful view, historic finishes, and wonderfully helpful staff made my trip great. The food was good and the lounge team very accommodating. I can't wait to come back with my husband for a weekend getaway. He'll fall in love with it too, I'm sure.

I was there with a large group of people, for the second year. The staff was gracious, accommodating, attentive. When I needed a bit of repair in bathroom, it was done promptly and well. I had a large room, comfortably king bed, excellent view over the Detroit River to Canada. The space as a whole is very attractive, from the... More

I enjoyed my stay at Riverwalk. Everyone was really friendly and helpful. The room was enormous and very comfortable and clean. I made use of the small gym which is very new and nice. I would have loved a way to make hot water for tea in the room.

A classic building with beautiful old fashioned rooms. This is not your ultra modern cookie cutter hotel Rather a location with character, nicely priced. if you are looking for s quiet elegant place to sleep with quality service and good uncomplicated food this is the place for you.
