Just home from a great weekend in Detroit. The Atheneum Suites hotel was amazing. Beautiful hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our suite was on the 2nd floor and was very spacious and clean. I had brought a small travel fan with me (as I always do when traveling), especially this trip after reading reviews about the noise. We didn't find noise to be an issue. It's downtown Detroit - the noises we heard seemed normal for being in the heart of a city, and not a problem for us. (You could hear an occasional voice, people/traffic on the street, and the People Mover coming & going.) With my fan on low I slept great.
We signed up for the I Prefer program, which gives you free valet parking (awesome).
Honestly what made our experience at The Atheneum was the shuttle driver, Tony! We made use of the free hotel shuttle, which takes you wherever downtown Detroit, within a 5 mile radius of the hotel. Tony was friendly, funny, and will always make me remember this weekend in Detroit with a smile. He's a great person. LOVED his stories while driving through downtown Detroit to & from our show at The Masonic. We'd been instructed to call the hotel when the show was over, and they'd page Tony to come pick us up. When the show was over we walked outside to call the hotel for our ride, and instead saw Tony sitting out front in the shuttle already waiting, hanging out the driver's side window smiling and waving us over. :)
We ate at Fishbone's, which is attached to the hotel. Awesome Gumbo Ya Ya & Shrimp Po Boy; hubby said his burger was great & onion rings good. Service was good.
Had a great time overall & we'll be back to The Atheneum.
