We played at the casino for one hour and got a free room for one night. I think the promo free rooms are mostly available mon-thursday. Our room was on the 8th floor and it seems rooms 7 and higher will have the best view of the city. One of the best rooms we have ever had at a casino.... More

I was in Detroit attending a concert at this hotel on September 11, 2014. The concert was amazing (Joss Stone), but the hotel was also very nice...better than I was expecting honestly. This hotel looks very nice; the inside is clean, but the rooms really shine. I compare this hotel to the 4 star hotel in Vegas. The Motor City... More

My husband and I stayed and played at this hotel for the purpose of attending a black tie event being held there. The event was lovely and the service and food were superb! This was our only experience dining there but perhaps it speaks for the food and service throughout the hotel. We stayed in a King deluxe room (#532)... More

Very classy hotel. Everything was top notch. Well worth the stay. The room was very comfortable. The only complaint is the food we ordered. Chicken soaked in cooking oil. The complimentary breakfast was coffee and muffins with some donuts. We drove to IHOP (about 10 minutes away) and had a real breakfast. The hotel itself and the staff were first... More

Finding the hotel was easy. I was allowed an early check-in which was great because I wanted to decorate my room before my husband got there. No other guests were in the lobby when I arrived but the lady at the front desk wouldn't end her conversation with another worker so that she could help me. After a couple of... More

Our room was just beautiful! We had a handicap room and everything was very accessible for my Aunt. The view from our room was amazing. At night the Ambassador Bridge is all lit up and it is awesome to look at! Everyone there was very nice.

We stayed at the hotel for the Eminem concert. To get a late checkout they wanted $50. I have never been charged anywhere and that amount is insane. Room was ok. Beds were very small... Bathroom was the nicest part. Hotel had numerous security checkpoints, which was nice, but also a bit scary. Only two restaurants were open. Will say... More

Lmk134, Thanks for staying with us. Fortunately, we’re nearly 100% full every night. Unfortunately, that means late check-outs become a huge problem when trying to get 400 rooms ready for the people who are checking in that night. We happily offer late check-outs when occupancy rates are low! We hope you understand and we thank you for your feedback! The... More

From beginning to end my stay was fantastic. It took a while to check in but, not a big deal whatsoever. I think the rooms are absolutely gorgeous and very cozy. The front desk staff, security and housekeeping staff were pleasant, helpful and friendly. There seem to be a lot of rules in regards to the safety and security of... More

My room and stay at the hotel was nice. The room was clean, it has an awesome view, and the floor we stayed on was quiet. However, the customer service for the overall establishment is the reason for this review. My boyfriend and I went to Detroit for the holiday to have some fun and hopefully get lucky at the... More

WshingtonNataisha, We’re glad you enjoyed your room! Our dress code was recently developed to ensure a comfortable environment for all guests, with signs describing it at each entrance. Unfortunately it doesn’t sound like we enforced it in the same way across the property. We’ve sent your note to all departments to make sure everyone’s on the same page! The Review... More

I stayed here in March with friends for a Tigers game. We did have to wait in line for a little while to check in, but once we did it was easy. For a 4 Diamond hotel the lobby could've been a lot bigger and a little fancier. The Front desk staff were very friendly. The room were very nice... More
