The Atheneum hotel and suites in Downtown Detroit is a great place to spend a night or two. I usually always stay at this hotel when going to Lions or Tigers games. Only a few blocks from either venue provides you with a safe and easy travel to check out some sporting events. The hotel has big spacious suites and... More

The Atheneum has everything that you need… plus many things that you want (jacuzzi tub, large room for a hotel, comfy bed, in-hotel bar, fine restaurant)… at the best price available in d'town Detroit. Been there twice & shall return again with Barbara (who also wrote a very favorable review of The Atheneum earlier.)

Overall we had a good experience at the Atheneum. I had a large suite which is a fairly narrow but long room. It was nice having a separate sitting and work area away from the TV and bedroom. The bathroom is in between the two spaces. The room was clean and appeared to be well maintained. There is a bar... More

Beautiful hotel! Stayed there many years ago, and was impressed with the uniqueness of the rooms, and professionalism of the staff. This time I can not say anything less. The newly renovated hotel is absolutely top notch. You hear nothing, when in your room. Walking distance to just about anywhere. Will definitely stay again.

The hotel stay was wonderful. The room was clean and we were close to all the restaurants and casinos downtown greektown. My mom was very happy with her birthday experience. The staff was very helpful and answered all of our questions.

This grand dame in Detroit is a little frayed around the edges but still delivers a luxury experience. Our one night stay was comfortable and convenient to the downtown area. Reception was pleasant and accomodating when asked to switch us from a double to a king room. The suite includes two areas, with the bedroom a couple steps down from... More

My business partner and I stayed at The Atheneum Suite Hotel for a four day work conference. It is conveniently located in downtown Detroit a few blocks from the GM Headquarters/Renaissance Center and connected to the International Conference Center. The front desk staff is very friendly and helpful. The cleaning staff is quiet and discreet. The suites are spacious, well... More

My stay at the Atheneum was amazing. My room was beautiful, large, and very clean. But what made my stay so wonderful was the staff. Everyone from the front desk associates, valet, bell hops, door men, and event planning group and servers were so kind and accommodating. This crew gave me a whole new perspective on Detroit. I highly recommend... More

I stayed at the Atheneum for a business event because we were given a certain rate for the event. I have no complaints. Valet was very friendly and helpful, rooms were really neat-- the bed is on a different level than the sitting area and the bathroom had a beautiful glass block wall. I was told by a colleague that... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The service was excellent. The room was spacious, clean and quiet. This is our second stay and will definitely return again on our next trip.
