We stayed here for one night while in town for the Garth brooks concert. It was nice and cozy. Expensive, but it included breakfast and the beds were quite comfortable. Definitely enjoyed my stay and will stay here again for a slightly lower price :)

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in downtown Detroit on a Saturday night. We were in town to attend an event at the Joe Louis Arena. The hotel was a two minute walk to the people mover which picked us up and dropped us off steps from the entrance of the venue for only .75 cents. The hotel was... More

Stayed Friday 2/27/15, in Detroit for the Garth Brooks concert. Didn't know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. Hotel is right downtown - but I'm not sure about walking to all the attractions. (Plus it was just another frozen Michigan day/night). Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Recognized as a rewards member and upgraded upon request. Corner room was... More

We stayed in Detroit for a concert. We usually stay at the Double Tree for about the same cost but decided to try something different. This hotel is close to the people mover. The room was small, but pretty clean. Our biggest complaint was that it was SO loud! You could hear everything! I understand that we are in the... More

Upon arrival, we realized there was no parking available besides valet. It took 15 minutes to get through the valet line and then we had to stand in a line that snaked literally out the lobby doors and onto the sidewalk just to check in; keep in mind, Detroit was experiencing sub zero temperatures. Everyone around us was pretty disgruntled... More

Our room itself was average, showed some damage that had been done in a door and wall. My complaint with it was how disorganized it felt. Breakfast was shoved in a corner with too many people in too small a space. The valets took over an hour, only for us to discover they took our ticket and never got the... More

Pluses: incredibly friendly and helpful staff; full hot (not just continental as advertised) breakfast included with room rates; really good location within walking distance of Cobo, restaurants, people mover. The only minuses: rooms are somewhat dated and a little worn. Seemed that everything that ran was noisy including the heat/air unit, the fridge (but having a microwave, mini-fridge and coffee...

We stayed at this hotel because it was a 7 minute walk to the Fillmore but its centrally located for sports arenas and the downtown core. There is also a late nigh famous hot-dog place (Lafeyette Coney Island) two minutes away. The rooms were great; large TV, big mini-fridge, free WiFi and two very comfortable queen beds. Downsides - were... More
