I stayed at the Atheneum for a Friday and Saturday night in July 2010. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I stayed in a deluxe suite. I won the room on Skyauction.com for $270 for two nights, taxes included. The room was HUGE! A seating area with a large screen TV, and bathroom, and then the sleeping area with... More

I love this hotel! Everyone from the front desk staff to housekeeping, to bellmen, to valet staff, to wait staff etc., etc., are cheeful, friendly, kind and professional! The rooms are incredibly large and comfortable and the location in Greektown can't be beat. This is my fifth or sixth stay at the Atheneum and I honestly can't imagine staying anywhere... More

We stayed here last year for a convention at the Marriott. We don't stay in Marriotts any longer since they stopped offering smoking rooms. Honestly I can't see paying money to have to stand outside in the freezing cold so I only stay in hotels with smoking rooms. When we stayed here last year were so impressed with the size... More

We really loved the Anthenum suites. It was a nice, clean hotel, and all the staff were friendly. I felt that we got excellent value for money and I couldn’t wish for a better place to stay!

First let me preface by saying that I am from Detroit and have stayed all over the city and experienced the same kind of service. It seems Detroit hotel staff is simply unwilling to provide guests with the courtesy of being remotely friendly either on the phone or in person. Being as though The Atheneum is among the pricier of... More

I hate to give the hotel such a low rating considering the room was great, but there were several things not mentioned before booking that nearly cost us 80 bucks in beer/liquor. the deluxe room is large, the beds are comfortable, they will bring you a fridge for free, and the bathroom is huge. the only negatives about the room...

The hotel was good in every aspect except that there is a strip club across the street that starts playing incredibly loud music from 9 pm to 2 am. I didn't feel like changing rooms since I had everything already unpacked. So, I slept with a pillow over my head. Yes, it is really that loud. If it wasn't for... More

Number one - I booked direct on the hotel website and took the early bird non-refundable rate and it is phenomenal! $125 including taxes - which are $26 of the total. Excellent friendly staff - I haven't stayed there in about 10 years, but the rooms are lovely after the recent remodeling. Huge, deep comfortable tubs and lovely soothing decor... More
