The staff at this hotel was good, the breakfast decent, and the room comfortable, However, it was a little pricey for nothing memorable. Good location. Elevator was loud although I was not very near it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the elevator

Thank you for rating our hotel on Tripadvisor. We appreciate any feedback that we do get from our guests. Being the lowest priced in the downtown area, offering the amenities that we do, and the warm-hearted staff, are the reasons we feel that our guests continue to choose our property when in the downtown area. Our rates are competitively positioned with the other hotels in our downtown market. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you feel this is not what you received.

We stayed for one night in this friendly hotel. All the staff went out of their way to be helpful and courteous. Although I'd read others' complaints about the Valet Parking, we got fast, efficient service. Highly recommend this spot for a budget friendly stay-over.

Good location walking distance to Comerica Park, and Ford Field. Staff very friendly. The morning Breakfast was ok, (could be just the morning we were there) but have had hotel breakfast's where there has been more selection. Would stay there again.

A 10 minute stroll to the ball park.
Friendly staff, from the lads at the door to the staff at the reception...... spotlessly clean room..... and a surprisingly good breakfast that was more than the "continental" spread that is so often the norm.

Now if only the Blue Jays had bothered to show up..........

We booked this hotel so we can spend the night after the Jimmy Buffett concert. We tried other hotels first, but they were all booked. Was not sure what to expect, but we were treated like we were at a 5 star hotel. Friendly front desk, check was a breeze. They went out of there way to make sure we all rooms ( 3 couples) were together. Rooms were very clean and plenty of space. It is also a short walk to Comerica Park and Ford Field. I would stay again.

Walk to the Detroit Tiger games, or as we did, to the Labor Day weekend International Jazz Festival by the Detroit River (last free festival in the nation, with the best jazz players!).
Staff very helpful and friendly. Even when full, the staff helped us to switch rooms, and the food at the breakfast buffet (fabulous buffet) was replenished constantly.
Tip: even-numbered rooms may be facing Michigan Ave., and the motorcycle noise kept me awake until about 2 am. We moved to an Interior, odd-numbered room, and it was quiet.
Hotel has a shuttle service to take people to Comerica Park for the Tigers games, or anywhere within 3 miles. Unfortunately, the shuttle ends at 10 pm so could not help us at 11 pm,
Hotel rooms are very clean, beds great, microwave & refrigerator & coffee maker in room.
A great affordable choice for us, since the Ren Cen Marriott is closer to Hart Plaza, but is more
expensive and offers no breakfast.

Room Tip: Get an interior, odd-numbered room so the noise from Michigan Ave. will not bother your sleep. It...
