With the exception of the young lady working Security (sorry I didn't get your name) and the "VOLT" Bar & Lounge staff, I second JPliszczak's review: “The worst Marriott experience I have ever had.” It sounds as though we were both there the same weekend. My wife, my sister, 5 year old nephew and I drove (well, my 5 year... More

I travel to Detroit yearly for business and always try to stay at the Detroit Marriott. The staff is very efficient and helpful, the rooms clean, quiet and comfortable and the concierge lounge provides a nice breakfast and pre-dinner snack (if you have access). Views from the room across the river to Windsor can be breath taking if you get... More

I have stayed at this hotel before I enjoy the location by the Riverwalk but the room is showing its age it is time to update them . The service was good and the bar area / lounge area was fine. I would stay here again but this would not be my first choice in the D. Come on Renaissance... More

I'm a Marriott Platinum member and have stayed at a number of Marriott properties over the years, and this is, by far, the worst Marriott experience I have had. I stayed at the Detroit Marriott last weekend for a convention. The service was horrible right from the start! It took over 45 minutes for our bags to be delivered to... More

I was in Detroit attending a conference and the Marriott was close to the convention center. Check in was easy as I used the mobile app on my phone. The room was ready and we had a nice view of the river. I was disappointed in the service staff cleaning the rooms. They never came the first day until I... More

Stayed here for a business trip. On the outside the place looks great. The hotel is touting their renovation in progress. We got stuck in one of the old rooms, desperately in need of an upgrade. Since the hotel tower is circular, you can hear the ice machine throughout the floor. We had the room close to the machine, which... More

Great Staff but Management needs to be fired! Before we arrived we asked for a fridge and a microwave as we have a 1 year old and a 3 year old. We were told both by central reservations and the front desk that it should not be a problem. I do understand that they cannot guarantee these items. When we... More

The hotel was very nice and comfortable and all of the staff that I encountered (valet parking attendants, front desk, housekeeping & maintenance) were friendly and acknowledged you with a smile.

In Detroit for a national professional conference. It all started with our reserved king room not being available at check in. Safe in room broken and no one available at concierge for 5 days. But the "icing on the cake" was the lack of clean towels for most of our stay! I know Detroit is trying to improve their image,... More

If a public space is designed to convey a feeling to its participants, this hotel makes its guests feel like a rat in a maze. It is designed as a cylinder with huge open space and floors are concentric rings around a central core. The result is you can see where you want to go, but cant figure out how... More
