5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

In my opinion, this is the nicest place to stay in downtown Detroit. I've only stayed in one of the three casino hotels and the other two are supposed to be very good but you still have to stay in a casino which means you at least have to walk through the smoke and gambling. The Book is new, clean and the service is good. I happened to get a very good price by shopping online and that helped a lot too. The downtown area has improved greatly and is now safe to walk around. Lots of young people now live and work in the area.

This is a beautiful hotel in Detroit, recently restored by Westin. My room was beautifully appointed, clean, and had a spacious bathroom. I love that the hotel is in the restored Book Cadillac building. Easy walk to Commerica Park and Ford Field. We stayed there for a concert. Downside - quite wait for check-in.

the hotel is very nice & clean. though i do have a few complaints.

-our coffee maker did not work.
-there were no garbage bags to place garbage in.
-i would not recommend the valet parking either. those men have no respect for other people's cars. they were acting like speed racers inside the parking garage. whipping around corners & flying over the speed bumps. i was trying to find a parking spot inside the garage & one of the men was on my butt so i pulled over because he seemed like he was in a hurry & once i did he slammed his foot down on the gas pedal.

Thank you for providing a review of your stay. We apologize for the issue with the coffee maker and hope that our Service Express team was able to resolve the problem quickly. We are dismayed to read about your experience with the valet. Although the valet service is provided by a third party company selected by the city owned adjacent parking garage we understand that their performance is a direct reflection of the Westin. The safety of our guest, who may also use the garage as self parkers, is paramount and we take these comments very seriously. You comments have been shared with the hotel leadership as well as the valet management company. Thank you again for bringing this to our attention.

Just a short one night stay, but enough to see the hotel is a welcome addition to Detroit's efforts to come back. Typical Westin room, clean spare but well maintained. Good light for being downtown, but sheers needed to be kept closed as my 7th floor room looked into the adjacent parking lot. The large window in the bathroom provided much needed light, but odd to have it next to the toilet. Only complaint would be the walls are very thin as all conversations in the hallway were loud and audible in the room.

I'm stayed at both the Marriott Courtyard and Marriott in the RenCen, and this is a much better choice. Having Roast in the building is a nice perk as well.

This is the cleanest, most well-managed, and most spacious Westin I've ever been in. Westins tend to be clean & efficient but plain, but this Westin has lots of natural beauty in the old architecture. The whole place seemed spic and span, with no bad smells or stains anywhere. And like someone else mentioned, the bathroom is very big. I'm used to being disappointed by hotels in some way so it was really nice to be in a hotel with no downsides or disappointments. Good work, Westin Book Cadillac.
