Stay away from this hotel if you can. We were denied the room that we had booked online. Then our neighbors (who took the room we had reserved) were having some sort of party with loud music - absolutely disobeying COVID protocol on how many people should be in the same place at once. The front desk seemed completely aware of what was going on, yet were unwilling to take any measures to correct the situation. Worst experience at a Hilton property by a long shot. So disappointed that we left and found another accommodation.

Hotel's Favorite
Met some friends from Wisconsin for the Pistons vs. Bucks NBA game. I picked this hotel out for the size of the rooms and the location. Both were key factors in my decision. People mover is next door and you can ride all around the D for .75 cents.

This is a perfectly nice room and hotel. It’s clean and feels safe. It’s basically what you expect of a Doubletree. The self-park is a bit of a pain in the butt (especially at $25) but, other than that, all went well.

A welcome place when you are away from home. You might not find everything you want - after business hours in a few blocks - but the Doubletree can provide you most, if not all, of what you need. I enjoyed my stay at the property and the hospitality that I was given and look forward to staying there for my next visits.

Arrived at hotel to find out that we did not have a room and they were overbooked. Got moved to a different hotel but the front desk people were not able to help at all. Just gave a letter and directions and told us where to go. Upon arrival of other hotel they did not keep up their end of the deal. Currently disputing charges for the other hotel that were supposed to be covered by Hilton. Also waiting over 20 minutes for someone to even show up for valet.
