There are a couple of reasons to choose this hotel if your looking for Detroit accommodations. In terms of location, its right in Greektown, so it's centrally located. Its directly across from the Greektown Casino, and a short distance from the others. The immediate area is not so bad, but I really would not venture too far out on your... More

When we arrived to the hotel 15 minutes after check in time, we were told our room was not yet ready. This was not the hotel's fault as the football game was moved to a later time, affecting check out times which put housekeeping behind. The hotel took care of our valet parking for the inconvenience as we couldn't check... More

Not the best hotel experience but not the worst. We went for the 2015 Detroit auto show weekend. When we arrived into our suite, very large nice looking 2 room suites with large bathrooms. Our room was only partially cleaned. When we called housekeeping they immediately came up and said the room was not acceptable so they moved us to... More

Convenient location, helpful and friendly staff, spacious and unique rooms, clean property. This property has many positive attributes: numerous food options available within a quick walk (and many do not require you to exit the building); PeopleMover stop just across the street gives you quick and cheap transportation to some other downtown areas; free shuttle within a 5 mile radius;...

I'd heard of the Atheneum and always thought it was top-notch. I had a client book me in for two nights, and I'm surprised. The lobby seemed un-heated. On a day of 10* highs, being greeted by staff wearing coats and the lobby being simply COLD, one must wonder. I got to my room, and spent 10 minutes tracing the... More

We stayed at the Atheneum last weekend and I would say was not the best experience. First off the hotel itself is very nice and is in an awesome location. Right next to Greektown Casino and lots of restaurants and shops nearby which make it a very desirable hotel to stay at. My first problem was that we book the... More

This was probably our fourth or fifth stay at The Atheneum, I first chose this hotel because of it's location close to Greektown. There is so much to do in this part of downtown Detroit, yet it is still close enough to everything else. The service you receive here is top notch, always very friendly people working here, and what... More

I was in Detroit for work and my boss loves this place. The rooms are spacious and while a tad bit dated in the overall vibe of the place, for under $150 you get a big suite with a mostly comfy bed. The location is right in the mix of D so it's a great base for food and bars... More
