Hotel was a great find. Our room was spacious and the beds were comfortable. Service at he hotel and restaurant was outstanding! The food at the Apparatus room was delicious... portions were a little on the small side though. Highly recommend both the hotel and restaurant!

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!

We stayed at the foundation hotel for one night and had a great experience! The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was beautiful, and the building itself is a historical wonder. We used the in-room dining option due to covid and the service was ok, but I think eating in the restaurant is the way to go. Other than that we enjoyed all the space within the room, the bed was luxurious, and the location is perfect for hanging out downtown.

Hotel was great, the service was average at best. We had to seek out staff everytime we had a question or to get service of any sort. The hotel is a little high priced for the service received as compared to a hotel of equal value.

We had a nice stay, ate dinner at the hotel. The dinner was very good just what we expected. Came down for breakfast the next day a 9:10 and where told that they didn't except walk ups. I told them that I was a hotel guest and that the front desk told us that we could get break fast until 10. They said that they didn't except walkups even though there was only 6 people in the restaurant. I don't understand!

robstrang, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback from your recent stay. It is very odd that you were told you were not able to dine in the Apparatus Room for breakfast. I will certainly be passing this on to our Food and Beverage Director for future follow up. Other than that inconvenience, I am glad you enjoyed your stay in the hotel we look forward to seeing you again soon. John Varani Guest Services Manager Detroit Foundation Hotel
