Really enjoyed my stay there, spacious rooms, friendly staff and nice location. It is within walking distance to everything incl. stadiums. Free shuttle too and a real shoe shine which I appreciated. Staff seemed genuinely eager to please and the amenities incl. gym, breakfast and internet were all good. Nice stay!

Hotel's Favorite
The attention to detail in this hotel is excellent. For example, my room had plenty of floor and table lamps and best of all an actual center ceiling light. The window really opened for fresh air, the sofa and armchair were extremely comfortable. The vibrant carpet enhanced the hallway and lent well to the welcoming hotel atmosphere. Reservations agent Donovan deserves special attention for helping me retrieve a Hilton Honors # and providing comp bottled water and great advice on a local restaurant. The array of comped newspapers was incredible-USA Today, NY Times, WSJ and Detroit News all available at the front desk. The airy, open lobby and the adjacent coffee shop, bar and restaurant really defined a very inviting hotel experience. Location is excellent; the People Mover station and the Rosa Parks bus terminal are within a two-three block walk. The Detroit River Walk is also within easy walking distance. I wouldn't even consider another hotel for my next Detroit stay.

My younger brother and I spent the night at this place while visiting our former hometown of Detroit . We were here for the night to see Jeff Lynne (formerly of ELO) from the front row at the little caesar’s arena. The hotel was built around 1905, though I somehow doubt it was a doubletree originally:) Anyway, the staff was fantastic and friendly, the room was great and we were able to dodge the $30-$40 valet fee by parking on the street directly in front of the lobby. Being a Saturday evening, the meters stop at 10 pm and parking is free on Sunday. It always feels good to beat the system every now and then. With the ‘people mover’ monorail just two blocks away, you can cheaply and easily access the arenas and stadiums, greektown, etc. I would certainly stay here again:) Cheers, Rob o

Great location but my service was good not great. The room was hot and the thermostat did not work correctly. My check in as a Hilton Honors member was completely different than the other guest who had the same membership as I did and it felt a bit awkward. Overall it was an average room with an above average location. Not horrible though, I’ve been to nicer hotels and not so nice hotels as well and this was neither a great or horrible stay.

Best place ever. I don’t eat red meat and after my first breakfast the kitchen staff remembered. They provided me with alternative to my diet. It felt like home away from home. Very comfortable and spacious
