I was initially a bit unsure about the location since it was my first time in Detroit, and, frankly, I knew very little about the area as a whole. The hotel is located downtown, and sure there are a fair number of closed businesses/empty buildings in...

I was very impressed with this hotel. I was unable to book a hotel at my preferred hotel in Windsor as they were sold out. However, I was very pleased with this selection. The hotel is in excellent condition. The rooms are very nice and comfortable. They are also rather large for a downtown hotel. Would certainly visit this hotel...

Rooms are clean. Wireless is terrible - could not connect to watch Netflix. Breakfast was as expected - nothing special but the bananas were green, some of the scrambled eggs were crusty. Staff were friendly. Valet parking fast and efficient. We walked to Joe Louis and back no problem.
