We spent the weekend here for my son and his new bride's wedding and reception this past weekend. The staff were polite, helpful, and wonderful to deal with, especially Curtis the bellman. He was so very friendly and accommodating, and genuinely interested in our event. And the reception was absolutely beautiful. The food was excellent. The service superb.

Such a huge disappointment. But let me start with a positive. The location is great. The staff is very kind. And I guess the price is OK for the location. That however, is it. The rooms are incredible dated and old. Clearly they don't care. The carpet in the room had many stains, the corner of the wall had a... More

We stayed over a Friday night to catch a concert at the Majestic. Every member of staff was very friendly and helpful especially Tony and Curtis who drove us in the hotel shuttle to the gig on Friday night in and to the Detroit City airport on the day we left, can't say enough about how great these two guys...

Great location, super friendly staff. 2nd time staying here, not all rooms are the same. Some look more recently remodeled than others, I think. Our room wasn't terrible, it was very spacious and was clean, but it could use a remodel. Old carpet, old shower, normal wear.... I would definitely stay again, just hope they do some updating soon.

Upon entering the first employee we encounter was a car valet. He promptly barked out that we only had 10 minutes to leave our car for check-in. i in turn let him know it all depended on the HOTELS ability to check us in quickly!! At the counter the young lady did not greet us just went straight to "name... More

Room was very clean, nice. Only thing was the noise. Our door next to elevator, heard the ding and noise from lobby and a car alarm that went off for 2 hours outside. It's a beautiful hotel and close to so many things.

The hotel location is perfect for downtown events. Nearby restaurants, casinos and entertainment. Lots of amenities in the room and above average staff. The suite layout with 2 large flat televisions, large bath tub and shower make the accommodations suitable for a family. Room service is available but a bit expensive.

Another excellent stay at the Atheneum. It is a super location to sports events, opera, river area, and Greek Town--all within walking distance. Suites are clean and well appointed. And the staff is first rate. It is our choice when in downtown Detroit.

I'm not going to type some long review here because I don't think I need to. This hotel is first class at every level. The staff, the rooms everything. Awesome shuttle bus driver. Everything was great from checking in to checkout. We will be back.
