Hotel is located in the heart of Greek town and walking distance from many attractions. The hotel shuttle will provide transportation to any other venue you desire but expect long wait times for your return trip...better yet, call Uber! Valet and Bellhop are excellent and rooms and comfy and spacious. Best tip is to request a room fat from the... More

The Atheneum is a great choice when staying in downtown Detroit. The rooms are huge (all suites) and the service is excellent. I don't think I opened a door the entire time I was there. There is always someone in the lobby to assist you or answer any questions and the location is perfect. It is located in the heart... More

We had a long wait to check in, over 20 minutes. The room was not very clean and the small lamp in the bedroom actually had burn holes on the shade - looked very much like a fire hazard! The bed was firm but nice and the location for a Tiger's game is excellent. The valet service was smooth but... More

Check in was 30 seconds tops, girl at the front knew her stuff. Great charm to this property, when you get to the room, you are a bit surprised as all the rooms are suites. Huge bathroom, living room area, two TV's in case you are pregaming, not to far from the Joe Louis (20 minute walk, that lets you... More

Nice, roomy suites well appointed. Got very excellent and friendly service from all of the guys working in the lobby/valet parking, etc. we utilized the hotel shuttle to take us to the Motown Museum and to the DIA so we could just leave our car at the hotel and take in the sights we wanted to. Two things that keep... More

The only reason I didn't give it a 2 was the location was great! We stayed in "suite" 1004. It was really just a 2-bedroom party room that has been well used. Positives - clean, smelled fresh, comfy beds, shuttle service to area attractions like Eastern Market and big party space. Negatives - worn out furniture, fixtures and dinged walls... More

Located in the heart of Detroit's Greektown, The Atheneum is a beautiful hotel with a unique feature - all of their rooms are suites! Each room has a living room, spacious bathroom, and a bedroom. A whole bunch of friends got rooms at this hotel for our friend's bachelorette party in Greektown. The suite concept made it great for us... More
