I stayed with some friends for a concert downtown - the shuttle service was great and the staff extremely helpful. The rooms were very clean but maybe a bit dated. The rooms were VERY big and if you are headed to town with a group ideal. Our room would have slept 6 easily and was very spacious for just the... More

Stayed down here with my health professional discount. got a free room upgrade. great room, great service. THE BAD the mini fridge is sensitive, take note of this if you brought any of your own drinks to cool off in there, as the sensor will add an extra chage to your account upon removal of your own beverages

Absolutely perfect place to stay for a game. Rooms were huge and the staff is outstanding. Great 5 block stroll to a Tiger's or Lion's game. The hotel is right around the corner from a great block of bars and eateries. The hotel has a huge open lobby , great look for an urban hotel

The location is perfect for Greektown, Stadiums or Renaissance Center. The hotel is all suites meaning that it has a sitting room with TV and couch in addition to the bedroom with king bed and TV. Wifi is free with good reception. The strangest part of the room is the huge round support pillar in the middle of the bedroom... More

We stayed at this hotel as part of a very large convention and while the staff was very friendly and the rooms are very large, this hotel left much to be desired. First, their wireless internet is very slow and would not stay connected. We had 4 rooms in our group and everyone had the same issue. When this was... More

Our primary reason for staying in Detroit was to go to a Tigers game. I wanted a safe hotel within walking distance, and this fit the bill. Traveling as a family of four with two teens, we find that more space equals better vacations, so the huge suite was a welcome sight. The hotel is located in a great location... More

The Atheneum Suites is an all-suite hotel, and I recently stayed there after booking a "hot-rate" room on Hotwire for a short, business-related stay in Detroit. Due to early arrival, I was unable to check-in prior to the day's meetings, but the staff was considerate and checked my bags until I could return for check-in. The room was an enormous... More

Regardless of where I have business in Detroit, I will always stay in this Greektown gem. In a beautiful older building, the rooms are split-level with giant tubs, windowed brick in the bathrooms and very high ceilings. The beds are also some of the best I've slept on and contrary to other reviews, I have always found it to be... More

Stayed here for one night in July 2015. The hotel has several things going for it - a great location, with easy access to Greek Town and the various sporting stadia; very helpful and willing staff and huge rooms. However, it is difficult to escape from the fact that the hotel is in major need of major refurbishment: the bathroom... More

I picked this hotel because of it's proximity to restaurants and other amenities. I found out that is only one of it's best features. Being right in Greektown means there are numerous restaurants, bars, bakery, convenience store, not to mention a casino. So there is always something safe and easy to get to. My traveling partner was going to an... More
