I would recommend this hotel and for sure book another stay. We stayed on a Friday night for a Tiger’s Game and it’s truly the perfect location in walking distance to everything. There is a parking garage across the street where you can park yourself for $21 or valet park for $30 I believe. The hotel rooms are very nice... More

I read the reviews for this hotel and they were all over the place. Noisy, sometimey service, etc. I spent a few nights there recently and it was great. This is an all suite hotel. Step down bedroom, 2 flat screens, huge tub in bathroom, and attentive service. You are made to feel comfortable the minute you arrive. This appears... More

The style of this place is opulent almost to the point of crassness, but it wins me over. In many many ways the place is tastefully done, but it has a touch of Vegas if you know what I mean. The staff are friendly and accommodating. I stayed on the 8th floor. My only complaint is that the building air... More

The dust on the plastic flowers in the lobby welcomes you to the filthy stained carpets and the never ending noise. This hotel might have large rooms but large does not mean grand. We had filthy, sweat soaked cheap foam pillows along with old, tiny towels from what looked to be the 1990's. The bathroom light fixture is pre 1990... More

Recently stayed at The Atheneum for two days due to a family wedding. Everything about this establishment is first-class - from check-in to the departure. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. In particular: The room were big and very, very comfortable and, importantly, clean. Moreover, the bedding and linen were great. Free WiFi and $10 a day valet, in-out parking,... More

My sister and I stayed here for a weekend and would definitely return. The staff were personable and efficient from the moment we arrived. The room was clean and spacious with a separate sitting area and bedroom, and a huge bathroom. Only slightly strange thing was the glass cube wall in the bathroom; Very 80's and could be awkward depending... More

I left my mothers heirloom turquoise conch belt in the safe realizing it 2 days later. Called hotel. directed to security. Although first two calls were responsive, it was the... More

Front desk is always friendly and attentive. I love the location in the heart of "Greektown" lots of action and many excellent restaurants. You can walk to Comerica Park,... More

If you don't want to eat, sleep, shower or watch tv, then this is the place for you. I spent a week there one night. They were nice and let me check in early which was great because I needed to take a nap. I was there for an event at the hotel that evening. The room I had was... More

I work in the hotel industry and have never experienced such friendly and helpful staff- everyone from the valet, to the room service is more than pleasant and genuinely cares about the guests in their hotel. I love the Atheneum and return yearly! They even remembered where we were from and made small talk upon arrival. Best hotel !
