I was very impressed with this hotel. I was unable to book a hotel at my preferred hotel in Windsor as they were sold out. However, I was very pleased with this selection. The hotel is in excellent condition. The rooms are very nice and comfortable. They are also rather large for a downtown hotel. Would certainly visit this hotel... More

We stayed at the Downtown Detroit Holiday Inn Express on Sunday, March 30th and Monday, March 31st. Monday was Opening Day for the Detroit Tigers, which is a very huge deal in Motown. We reserved a king suite (has a kitchen). Specifically, our room was 730, which is at the end of the hallway and looks down upon the front... More

We spent Sunday March 30-Tuesday April 1, 2014 at Holiday Inn Express Detroit. We were there for the Detroit Tiger home opener.

I was just here a few weeks ago, we had a cheer competition at the COBO and it was a great walking distance,. also loved that we could walk downtown to close dining areas.

Rooms are clean. Wireless is terrible - could not connect to watch Netflix. Breakfast was as expected - nothing special but the bananas were green, some of the scrambled eggs were crusty. Staff were friendly. Valet parking fast and efficient. We walked to Joe Louis and back no problem.

My son and I attended a Detroit Red Wings game last night and stayed here. The location was great; the service was fine, the room was clean, large, well appointed with a microwave oven, refrigerator, and a king-size bed. There was also a nice pool on the 17th floor. The complementary breakfast consisted bacon, sausage, pancakes, cereal, rolls, bagels fruit,... More

I enjoyed my stay here. I found a pleasant check in with the General Manager working the desk and giving a warm welcome on a cold January night. Energetic car runners made the Valet parking easy and convenient. I didn't try the People Mover nor the hotel shuttle bus. Cobo Hall is 3 blocks away, an easy walk, reasonably safe... More
