Love the beds. The room was clean and spacious with a great view. Check in and out was a breeze. Staff was nice. We did call front desk and asked to remove items from the wet bar to put fresh fruit and vegs, was put on hold, then told meds can go in the door but to remove items that... More

I stayed here for a formal event held in the ballroom. The hotel rooms are very spacious with huge bathrooms. The room had nice mood lighting above the cabinets. The built in cabinets were also nice with motion censor lighting. The hotel offers loads of eating options and is a great event facility. Although a non-smoking hotel, the prior guests... More

This is probably the best sleeps i have had at a hotel, beautiful beds. Clean nicely appointed king rooms. Staff were very friendly and helpful, went out of their way to make sure you enjoyed your stay. The staff to engage the clients, the fellow vacuuming the carpets right to the valets made you feel like you were coming home... More

We stayed overnight at the MotorCity Casino Hotel when in town for a play. The hotel far exceeded my expectations. We had a room on the 13th floor. You had to scan your room card in the elevator to access the floor, so the traffic was minimal. The hotel floor was very quiet, which is unusual for a Saturday night.... More

Overall, I liked this hotel, although a few things are keeping me from giving a whole-hearted positive. The location is a little far from downtown, but close to Slow's BBQ. The good: The rooms are very nice, and have great views of the downtown. The bathroom was impressive and really well done. Having the larger casino amenities was also convenient.... More

I really like the design of this casino/hotel. You can easily partake of the casino as it is down a curved corridor yet if you don't want to it is not "in your face off the lobby". The hotel is elegant and tasteful. It is also very organized in its layout. I loved the art work. The rooms were very... More

I will preface this review by saying I read all of the reviews, both of the hotel and the casino before I booked. I booked this hotel because the hotel rooms received so many consistent positive reviews - I did not book it for the casino, spa or restaurant reviews. I was in Detroit for an event, and generally wanted... More

35 years old and realized I forgot id when checked by security staff and we were not allowed on casino floor. That would be ok. It was my mistake to forget. Then while looking for it 4 brothers in my age group don't have to show id, but just open their coats to show they don't have any guns. Housekeeping... More

We were quite surprised at how nice the hotel and casino really was. The rooms were very clean, the staff was pleasant, and the layout good. Even though there were about 30 people waiting to check in, the two young ladies working the desk were quick and efficient. I was really surprised that it took less than 10 minutes. The... More
