I was traveling with my husband and 3 other coworkers for a business trip in Detroit. The first night there my husband and I went for a short walk. On the return to the hotel, 2 guys got on the elevator with us. Since I was on the side with the elevator controls, I asked what floor, they said 7.... More

I recently stayed at the Atheneum hotel in downtown Detroit, MI and was very impressed with the hotel and level of service. The room was very large, clean and well maintained. The hotel is located right in the heart of Greektown, and right next to the Greektown Casino. The hotel has a shuttle to take you anywhere downtown. The only... More

Stayed here for 3 day business trip. The extra large corner room with king bed was like a small apartment. Quiet, roomy and easy indoor walk (except outside to cross street) to Greektown casino. Good alternative to more well known hotels in the area for the price.

This was my first trip to Detroit, the same for all four of us. We booked two rooms at a good price hoping it was a good idea. From the time we arrived to the time we left we met many staff members from the front desk to the cleaning people. All were very friendly and accommodating. I would recommend... More

I was here for business and found the staff very friendly and helpful; The rooms were clean and spacious and well appointed. I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the room. The banquet facilities were very nice as was the food. I would definitely stay here again

I would stay here again, as I liked most everything here, but there were a couple of things. I have stayed here several times, and each time the business center printer does not print. They send over the engineering guy who tried but could not fix, (this on 2 visits!). So they need to look into that. I can get... More

Found the hotel when looking for a place to stay while attending a concert at Joe Louis. Every worker at the hotel was extremely friendly and accommodating. They were very helpful and wanted to make the stay great. The shuttle is a wonderful bonus. We used it to go to dinner one evening and breakfast the next morning. The driver... More

Stayed two nights for our annual "girl's weekend". The staff was top notch, the location was perfect, convenient to several places we wanted to try. It's attached to Fishbones restaurant and you can get room service 24 hours. Valet parking quick and efficient. The best part? The room! Spacious, beautiful, divided into areas so you can stay up watching tv... More

I was here recently for a work trip. I must say, the staff was the best part of the stay. Very friendly and helpful. In particular, one of the shuttle drivers was great (the other one, not so much). Rooms were a unique suite layout which I enjoyed. The free wifi, shuttle service and later checkout were very helpful for... More

I could not have been happier with my experience at The Atheneum from the second we arrived to the location to the second we departed. Everyone went above and beyond to ensure our visit was perfect. The hotel is absolutely beautiful from head to toe. The rooms are extremely spacious and the location could not be any better. I'll never... More
