Stayed here recently while having fun in Greektown Detroit on a recommendation of a friend. Great little find of a hotel that I will definitely be back to when I return. Loved the location. Stafff was friendly. Rate was fair for a hotel in the area. No complaints.

This was a great hotel for the money. I read the reviews ahead of time and they were helpful. The room was clean, and arranged in an interesting layout. Staff was friendly. Within walking distance to many things I wanted, such as Greektown bakery. Hotel arranged a complimentary shuttle to a Red Wings game that a several guests were attending.

First of all, the staff is spectacular!! The shuttle was a great addition to our stay since we parked out vehicle at the casino to avoid the $25th valet charge. The room was absolutely beautiful and they even upgraded our suite because they were overbooked. Our room had a jacuzzi tub so we called down to see if we could... More

We stayed for the second time at the Atheneum while doing Red Wings Hockey games. The staff are strikingly friendly and engaged with you from arrival through the front door throughout the stay. They provide a shuttle that will take guests to sites within 10 miles of the hotel. They took us to the Joe Lewis Arena, Hockeytown Cafe, Detroit... More

I really want to love this hotel. It's in a great area with things to do and rooms are very spacious with some nice amenities. The hotel was fairly priced for the night we stayed as well. There a few really big kickers: Noise. It truly is an issue. We stayed in room very close to the elevator so we... More

Staying here for the first time to see a Wings game. This hotel is situated perfectly for many activities. Service has been excellent. Rooms are gorgeous for the price. It definitely caters to a younger party crowd and was a bit noisy. But then we weren't the loudest group for a change. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat!

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
