Overall the hotel was clean and we had a nice one night stay. The walls are thin. From our room we could hear doors slamming and people talking in the hallway, as well as a man snoring loudly. Also, the bathroom in our room had a completely see-through glass door and there was no privacy (seriously, you can see everything).... More

Me and two other friends stayed at this hotel for a Saturday night for the 2015 auto show. Some points I would like to mention. Pro - 2 minutes walk to Cobo Centre - easy valet parking. Enter off Larned Street - have a lot of charging areas: two on top of the desk, another two beside the bed side... More

I chose to surprise my husband with an out-of-town, overnight getaway by attending the 2015 International North American Auto Show, and I chose this hotel for its chain's reputation and the convenient closeness to the event site. Check in starts at 3:00pm, and we got there around 4:45pm. We arrived to a lobby full of about 40 guests, and we... More

I left my camera charger in my room while staying at the crowne plaza riverfront in Detroit in November. We checked out of our room on November 28th and 2 hours into our drive I realized I had left my camera battery charger plugged into the wall in the room. I called house keeping and spoke to Yvette who assured... More

stayed here for the Detroit motor show..very convenient..literally 30 secs away if that... we didn't eat at the hotel as its simply overpriced..few options around the hotels within walking distance..you can order pizza from outside though.. I requested a room with the river view..very beautiful but the windows were covered with some huge poster which made the view unclear...not all... More

There were hits and misses with this hotel. The hits the lady who checked us in was great, I think her name was Donna. The valets were all exceptional. The rooms were fair, they were clean but not spotless. The misses were big. The restaurant at the hotel looked nice, took forever to get seated, and it was even close... More

I've never been more impressed by a hotel before! Beautiful lobby with everything we needed (Starbucks was a plus), great room with a great view (car ad was covering our room, though), and great amenities as well (great pool, fitness center, and JACUZZI? Yasss.) Oddly enough, the pool was close to the valet/ back door, which made for an uncomfortable... More

Other than the location, this hotel is just OK. Small rooms, and very very small bathroom, the shower was small, no tub, and no counter space what so ever. The restaurant buffet breakfast was OK, they run out of plates and took awhile to get some more, the service at restaurant was poor and we froze due to the fact... More

My husband and I flew down for the Detroit Auto Show this past weekend. I think for the most part if you are doing business or visiting the COBO center and Location is primarily what you are looking for then this hotel is IT. It is literally across the street from the COBO. We were able to get a "side... More
