Due to COVID-19, effective March 19, 2020, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend operations at Detroit Foundation Hotel, The Apparatus Room, and Chef's Table. Detroit Foundation Hotel combines communal, industrial, and luxury design to transform Detroit’s former Fire Department headquarters (built in 1929) into a 100-room hotel. With spaces designed for socializing, creating, eating, drinking, and relaxing, we will bring together world travelers and neighbors and showcase Detroit’s legacy and knack for innovation.

I hate that it has taken me so long to write a review about Detroit Foundation Hotel. After years of traveling to Detroit for work, The Foundation Hotel changed the game for my hotel stays. They are literally rewriting history with this hotel. All that said, it took me leaving to realize just how much I had in the first place - the grass is not always greener. Unfortunately, during one of my trips in I found that this hotel was booked up so I took it as an opportunity to try the "prestigious" Shinola Hotel." It was quite possibly one of the worst experiences I've had from barely being greeted upon a 11 PM ET check-in, to someone trying to barge into my room to being double charged for minibar items... it was one disappointment after another. So here's what I have to say about the incredible Detroit Foundation Hotel: - Their staff is so kind and attentive, one front desk member almost let me borrow his personal cell phone charger for the night because I forgot mine. - I was greeted on my third stay (I believe) with a complimentary bottle of water and nice handwritten note. - The rooms are so chic and comfortable...I catch myself not wanting to get out of bed! - I have enjoyed every glass of wine served at this establishment haha! - It's everything you could possibly want when you're away from home. - It is a great homage to Detroit's history. - The location could not be better - so close to restaurants, downtown, and more. Thank you and don't change! Brittany --

The Foundation is in a great location for your downtown Detroit stay. Across from the TCF center, it is close to the river walk and downtown. The rooms are well appointed and warm. The history of the building is on display and compelling. And the staff meet and anticipate your every need. They were all so pleasant and go above and beyond to make your stay complete. Loved it!

One of the most beautiful buildings in Detroit and certainly some of the best hospitality you can experience. The staff were incredible from valet when we arrived all the way to the front desk staff upon our departure. We will definitely be staying here again as it is worth every penny and then some.
