I stayed one Friday night at the Doubletree Detroit to attend a convention. I was not able to get an early check in, but they let me self-park across the street and watched my bag while I walked down to the convention. (easy walk...safe, even in the early evening) Check-in was great and they upgraded me to the 9th floor king suite 914...very nice. Lots of space and seemed recently updated. When I checked in, everything went smoothly and the front desk was great. Bed was comfortable...heat / AC worked and could even open windows. The views from the room were fantastic. My room came with breakfast which was a full menu. I also had a drink and a burger in the bar. Burger was good and the bartender was friendly. I would stay here again if I was visiting the Huntington center

Hotel's Favorite
We had a good 1 night stay this past weekend. Everyone at the front desk was very friendly and accommodating (shout out to Ayesha and Donna) esp with self-park issues. In fact, all hotel staff were cordial and helpful. Our room seemed to be a newer renovated room and was very clean upon arrival. One drawback is it’s not really close to any restaurants, but it is only a short walk to get to several establishments.

This is a pretty standard Doubletree. A bit of an older property but adequately updated. Having a suite is very nice for a downtown hotel. The location is solid. It’s not right next to anything, but it’s just a few blocks from everything in the downtown area. The fitness room is small but sufficient. There isn’t a pool. The hotel restaurant had good breakfast combos that made it a convenient option, though I was unimpressed by the bar.

Attentive, friendly, focused customer service. How wonderful to be remembered especially when it’s been one year since my last stay. Comfortable surroundings with short walking distance from food choices or quick transportation pick-up

I checked in thus hotel as a Diamond member. I was given a non renovated room. The room is old and has a musty order. My brother check in as a silver member and got a renovated room. When I called to switch rooms, they told me that just because I am a diamond member doesn't mean that I should get a renovated room. Then she told me that they can't change my room because the hotel is sold out and even though not everyone has checked in, why should someone else get a non-renovated room. Then she transferred me to her manager's voice-mail. I felt completely disrespected and non valued as a diamond member at this hotel.

Things happen, and how they are responded to shows the difference between an establishment that cares and an establishment that does the minimum. This hotel has great staff and is attentive to guests' difficulties during their stay.

Could not have asked for better, budget-friendly, accommodations for our wedding attendees! Rooms were well appointed and maintained, not to mention super clean! Desk clerks were so gracious. Valet service was friendly and efficient. We worked with Bill Aprill to arrange our wedding party "block" of rooms, and he was great.

This is a beautiful hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. All areas were clean and our room was incredible. I was pleasantly surprise by the spacious room. parking was easy and not too expensive. My only suggestion would be for there to be "walking" maps maybe available. Detroit is alive and thriving.

I arrived late at night. The lobby was full of strange people sleeping in the hall, probably homeless. My room key did not work on the second day, I went to the reception and had to wait 30 minutes for a hotel person who knew to redo my key. The following day I had the same problem. No breakfast is included as well. One of my worst stays at a Hilton hotel...
