I highly recommend the Atheneum Hotel in Detroit given it's great location, large and clean rooms, and friendly staff. My fiancee and I were looking for a romantic getaway weekend, so we decided to visit Detroit! We stayed at The Atheneum, and chose the hotel given its positive rating, and location. We were delighted with the hotel! The location was... More

We love staying at the Atheneum. Three rooms in a suite, a sitting room with couch, bar and TV, a few steps down to a nice size bedroom, and a large bathroom. With our family of 4 and two queen beds, the extra room allows some to be up later in the evening or earlier in the morning without it... More

This hotel exceeded our expectations. The location is perfect for all tourist destinations in Detroit. The room was huge, separate living quarters and bedroom. The staff was excellent and provides a free shuttle to take you to where you want to go, and pick you up when you are ready. This is a must stay in Detroit!

Check in went very smooth and folks were more than happy to help you with bags, parking, shuttle bus etc... Rooms were a suite and had of room to stretch out and relax. Two flat screen TV's. couch...

You are in downtown Detroit (Greektown) the neighborhood isn't what you will expect compared to other downtowns like NYC, SF, Chicago, etc. Some areas need some renovation. The hotel was very clean and inviting. Doorman, valet, concierge were very friendly and helpful with directions and other city information. The housekeeping staff...I would have to visit again to actually rate them;... More

We booked our room and it was supposed to be a suite. What we received was a room that was intended to be an extra bedroom for an adjoining room. It had it's own hallway for the room next door. It was not only loud because it was not a room in itself, it only had a bed and a... More

My husband and I came to Detroit for a wedding and the couple had set up a block of room at this hotel. I was excited to stay at the hotel because the website made it look beautiful. It was a little on the expensive side though. Upon checking in, the hotel was great...nice location, beautiful lobby, very clean and... More

My husband were in town for a wedding and visiting my family, and it happened to be our wedding anniversary too, so we decided to celebrate downtown. The architecture and design of the Atheneum is super cool. The rooms are really amazing and spacious. You have a living area with a TV and couch, and then there are steps leading... More

Classy hotel within walking distance to everything. Great staff, shuttle driver was very helpful. I have back problems and the tub/shower was difficult to get into, one in it was a good shower. I was in room 923, the sitting area remained HOT even with the air set to 60, the lower sleeping level was cooler but no where near... More

Nice hotel, clean. But they have no security anyone can rent a room and have 100 people show up for a party. I'm serious, no one stops you. VERY loud. Door's slamming all hours of the night. We had to put a chair next to our door so it wouldn't rattle when other doors around us got slammed. Then the... More
