Most people- from the front desk to management- seemed annoyed to have to do their job. Not one person smiled or even tried to be pleasant. Very disappointed. Food was good, atmosphere good, rooms clean and comfortable.

Hotel's Favorite
This was a remarkable weekend stay in Downtown Detroit. We were there on a special date night and really enjoyed it. The hotel is beautiful and super comfortable, the staff is really attentive and everyone takes care of you. We loved the house car service as well as our dinner at the Apparatus Room. Top-notch dining and service. Will definitely come back.

Beautiful place, food is excellent. Bartender needs to fund a different job. Beer selection is very limited so be sure to order a mixed drink, not beer. Atmosphere was awesome as it use to be a fire station and they kept a lot of the features.

We were in Detroit for a quick overnight to see the Van Gogh exhibit and found this hotel online. It was super easy to get to, close to everything (eat at Dime Store, Grand Trunk or Hudson Diner...all close walk), with a fantastic restaurant and room vibe. We're Hilton Honors Diamond and really enjoyed this hotel. We'll definitely make it our go-to when in Detroit. GM John was extremely helpful with everything.

We enjoyed a great staycation night to celebrate our anniversary. The hotel staff left a welcome sweet treat and Happy Anniversary note for us in our room upon check in. Our King Deluxe room was spacious, clean, had great décor with high ceilings. Highly recommend when staying in Detroit! Lovely bar & restaurant off the lobby for a meal or a drink. We stayed on a Thursday, so it wasn't as busy at the bar for an after dinner cocktail. Bonus - Fridays and Saturdays, the hotel offers a car service within a 3 mile radius! Highly recommend Detroit Foundation Hotel!

Really well done renovation of the Detroit Fire Headquarters that maintained many original features while modernizing the building. The car service they recommended from the airport was fantastic and competitive with Uber rates. Restaurant staff were fantastic as well. Overall great experience and we will be back!

I had never stayed in downtown Detroit, but was charmed by the sophistication of the Detroit Foundation Hotel, which was originally built as a fire station. From first to last, each day was a pleasure: reception quick and easy for a group of 28, rooms spotless, private breakfast always ready before schedule, and a lively vibe. Every request was greeted with a smile and I very sincerely would recommend it to all.
