The room and its bathroom were both spacious and clean. The hotel is a good 10-15 minute drive (on the expressway) north of Downtown -- so not within walking distance of anything. But, the parking and wifi were free; and we had a very quiet sleep, on a fine bed. We liked that the little card containing the door keys... More

Stayed at the MotorCity hotel for a company meeting. The service staff were helpful, the rooms were clean and spacious. The casino itself was nice as well. Definitely not Vegas, but a nice getaway for a Detroit casino.

We booked the hotel to attend a benefit at the Hard Rock Cafe, which wasn't nearby, but only a 10$ dollar cab fare away. The check in was quick and friendly and we were pleased to be offered an upgrade to a room on a higher floor. The room was clean, modern and well appointed. We had drinks in the... More

Where do I start? Disaster from beginning to end. First off, my husband and I stayed last night in room 1123. Should have known off the get go when we arrived in our room, and the garages were full from the previous guests. Oh well, it happens, no biggie I said. Then.....we relaxed for a while before heading to the... More

My first trip to Detroit-two couples travelling together for a Lions game. We were looking for something close to Ford Field as well as the highway. Motor City seemed like the perfect choice. It really is an interesting focal point being massive and completely illuminated in rainbow colours smack dab in the middle of the run down abandoned streets of... More

First time ever staying in Detroit. Stayed there a few nights for the Jon Secada Concert and the venue was excellent. Now back to the hotel: My Wife and I booked a room with a king size bed and upon check in they said there were none available. Bummer- so we checked out the double bed room and the single... More

To be fair, I can't give any review of the hotel. I can give a review of how difficult it is to cancel a reservation. I reserved a room in July for a booking in November. My husband tried to cancel it 5 days in advance due to work obligations. My confirmation email said "Cancellations must be made at least... More

Nice large room. Bathroom was large and very modern. The hotel check in was ok. You can tell later in the evening the line got long. There is not much around the hotel. You are close to MGM, Ford Field, and Comerica Park. Would recommend staying here for a night or two,
