Trumbull & Porter was one of my most bizarre hotel experiences and I've had many hundreds at all price levels. It started at the check in desk where four staff members were apparently carrying on a staff meeting, oblivious to a guest waiting for attention. The trend continued for my 3 night stay where I found the staff generally self absorbed and inattentive. The hotel is located just an Uber ride from anywhere in a run down area near downtown called Corktown. They automatically added 10.00 per day for parking without asking if I would be parking in the lot. I was not and had to wait while the check in person inquired on how to remove the charge. I would recommend any guest with a car pay to park because it is very likely it will be broken into if you park outside the fence in the street. I did see one car with a broken side window. The hotel itself is a very old style building typical of cheap hotels 60 years ago. The welcome book claims they are an authentic artisan boutique hotel and recently spent 11 million on renovations. Most of that was likely spent on paint and promotion. What to do with old acoustic ceiling tiles in the hallways? Spray paint them black and maybe no one will notice. Threadbare and stained carpeting? Rip it out and declare the exposed concrete a hip industrial look. The room furnishings looked like they were supplied by the Dollar Store. It seems the 11 million renovation moved them up from 1 star to maybe 2. The room services guide was another strange touch with at least three pages dedicated to safety information. TV channels were the usual selection and all came in sharp and clear with the exception of the Fox News Channel. The picture was clear but the audio so garbled it was unwatchable. It was really comforting to realize that they are concerned with both my mental and physical safety. But don't expect any morning amenities. A cup of coffee in the lobby will set you back 3 bucks. So my overall impression was this hotel makes a real effort to market itself to a specific demographic. They actually claim this is the place to see and be seen in Detroit. A place where you can rub elbows with Detroit's celebrities. Really! If you are a twenty or thirty something guy with a man bun and a tattooed female companion with maybe a nose ring, you will likely feel safe and have a comfortable hotel experience. If you are an older guy with a few hundred thousand hotel points in your accounts you will not be impressed.

Immeditely upon entering I knew this was going to be a unique experience. The industrial style decor is as cold as the concrete floors. My television didn't work and the 7 am breakfast didn't happen untill 8 am due to an employee not showing up for work. The desk staff and bar manager were polite and professional but that was all that was good about the property.

I really liked the industrial design remodel. It is a theme that is carried through the whole hotel. Everyone was very friendly and courteous. The beds were very comfortable and my only complaint is the lack of a full shower door.
