I stayed here the night before the Detroit marathon last weekend. The Westin was booked, so we decided to give this hotel a try. Pros: located in Greektown, so there were plenty of restaurants to choose from. Fishbones is one of our favorites, and it was close by. The rooms were clean, and extra blankets were quickly delivered to our room. The staff was always smiling and greeted us throughout our stay. Check in and check out we're quick and easy. Cons: there is a casino in this hotel, and Las Vegas it isn't. The smoke was so bad, we really didn't want to even give the slots a try. The clientele consists of folks who are not there on vacation, so it really isn't an enjoyable environment. The hallway outside our room was noisy at different points throughout the night, so I guess I would have preferred a quieter location prior to my race. The hotel restaurants were adequate and there was a good variety of offerings. After we finished the race, we stopped at the hotel sports bar, Shots, for a celebratory Bloody Mary. It was was very understaffed so service was slow. The nachos were cold and I think it might have had canned cheese on it. Something fresher would have been more appealing. That being said, there was a Lions game downtown during our stay, so it was great to see so many families downtown to enjoy the great things Detroit has to offer. We used the People Mover to travel to and from the marathon event, and it was very convenient and safe. All in all, I would recommend this hotel if you have a short stay downtown. The staff here was actually more accommodating and overall more friendly than our previous Westin stay, and I guess I didn't expect that since it is a more affordable hotel. I would probably stay there again.
