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.

The room was clean and nice. The service was great. Must see the world's tallest indoor water fall. The hotel leads into Fishbones of Greektown. Also, must eat somewhere in Greektown or get drinks. We enjoyed.

Everything, and I mean everything, was far better than expected. The room was great, very clean, everyone we encountered at The Antheneum was warm and friendly, the location was perfect for Tiger baseball and enjoying Greektown and the waterfront. I truly hope I'm spelling his name correctly but a very special thank you to Curtice is deserved. He made my... More

On the surface it is all good: valet parking; marble floors, high ceilings’; courteous staff… Location is also good. It is close to Greek town and the casino. Walking distance from the river walk highly recommended). In the same time, I could not shake off the feeling that something is amiss. In the middle of the room, there was a... More

One night stay started out at $149.00 but after adding in $25 for overnight valet parking, and miscellaneous fees, including $3 each for cola or water from the in-room fridge (which should be complimentary at this price), the final bill ended up to be $214.83! On top of the sticker shock, the carpets needed cleaning, as did the grout in... More

We stayed here the night of August 10, 2016. When we arrived the woman that works at the valet acted like we were a bother when we asked for directions...she needs to look up the definition of what the meaning of that is. The suite was quite large, however the air conditioning system needs to be replaced...as you can notice... More

Stayed on a summer weekend in August and the AC in the room was overtaxed, the sitting area was virtually unusable as it was too far away from the unit to be effective. At least we were able to sleep somewhat comfortably, not the case for patrons on higher floors and in hotter rooms. We were on the 2nd floor... More

As several have said, we had an attractive, but feeble air conditioning, extremely hot. While there were two rooms the front one was totally unusable and I had to sleep under the window just below the one dysfunctional ac unit. The "breakfast" was a couple of plastic cereal packs and a plastic tool ... oh yeah, a couple of stale... More

Very nice suite and layout, but NO AIR CONDITIONING AND surly staff. Great location, horrible customer service and when I complained from the first time I walked in the room, they did nothing. Once I told them we could not stay in the room another night if the temperature was not reduced they brought me a fan and said there... More
