It took us two hours to get served our dinner. Server kept getting drinks wrong through the evening. Food was excellent but menu limited. The history and architecture of the building is interesting throughout and that was the highlight of the stay. We ordered room service the next morning and it was late because the ticket printer was broken. Took two trips to get all our food.

If you come to downtown Detroit, stay here. We booked an overnight for our anniversary, checked in at 4:30, walked to Campus Martius and the Detroit Riverwalk, then dinner at the Apparatus Room (in the hotel). Start to finish a lovely experience!

This historic fire station converted to hotel was a wonderful, if pricey, place to staff. The staff was really friendly and helpful and the rooms were beautiful, spacious and functional, very unlike the standard style of hotel room you find most places. You can really tell the history of the place and it's situated right in the heart of downtown Detroit.
