I'm from the Detroit area but have not stayed in a hotel downtown. I had a speaking engagement at Cobo Hall and was put up at this hotel. We arrived after midnight and was greeted with a two hot cookies. (350 calories btw but incredibly yummy). Even at that late hour, the front desk person made sure our car was taken care of. I asked to have a room away from elevators and ice machines and asked for an early wake-up call. Imagine our surprise to find that we were in a corner suite! We had large corner windows in both the bedroom and sitting room area. Even better, I had views of the river from many of the windows. The decor was contemporary and pleasant to look at and sit in. I'm fussy about cleanliness and always check what's under the mattress pads and pull mattresses away from the wall. Not only was everything very clean, but the bedskirt didn't have even a hint of lint under the mattress. The amenities were lemony and included a disposable facial cleansing cloth. The coffee was Wolfgang Puck and included real half and half - not powdered packets.
Since I had to go to Cobo, it was great to be able to walk. It was an easy 5 minute walk and I felt completely safe. The tv channel WDIV channel 4 is across the street. There isn't much in the way of businesses with a lot of people, but my event was on a Sunday morning. It might be different on a weekday. If you like to walk or run, the riverwalk and Hart Plaza are again a 5 minute walk away.
