Found the hotel when looking for a place to stay while attending a concert at Joe Louis. Every worker at the hotel was extremely friendly and accommodating. They were very helpful and wanted to make the stay great. The shuttle is a wonderful bonus. We used it to go to dinner one evening and breakfast the next morning. The driver... More

Stayed two nights for our annual "girl's weekend". The staff was top notch, the location was perfect, convenient to several places we wanted to try. It's attached to Fishbones restaurant and you can get room service 24 hours. Valet parking quick and efficient. The best part? The room! Spacious, beautiful, divided into areas so you can stay up watching tv... More

I was here recently for a work trip. I must say, the staff was the best part of the stay. Very friendly and helpful. In particular, one of the shuttle drivers was great (the other one, not so much). Rooms were a unique suite layout which I enjoyed. The free wifi, shuttle service and later checkout were very helpful for... More

I could not have been happier with my experience at The Atheneum from the second we arrived to the location to the second we departed. Everyone went above and beyond to ensure our visit was perfect. The hotel is absolutely beautiful from head to toe. The rooms are extremely spacious and the location could not be any better. I'll never... More

This was a very nice hotel. It's an all suite style and very reasonable for right downtown. The staff was VERY accommodating. The location couldn't have been better either. It's attached to Fishbones, the bar area was very nice like an upscale lounge and all we had to do to get to the casino was to walk across the street.... More

This hotel is connected to fishbones and easy entrance to greektown. Very clean, cozy, reasonable with updated suites. Will definitely stay here again! Fell in love with the puffer fish with personality in the bar area.

There are a couple of reasons to choose this hotel if your looking for Detroit accommodations. In terms of location, its right in Greektown, so it's centrally located. Its directly across from the Greektown Casino, and a short distance from the others. The immediate area is not so bad, but I really would not venture too far out on your... More

When we arrived to the hotel 15 minutes after check in time, we were told our room was not yet ready. This was not the hotel's fault as the football game was moved to a later time, affecting check out times which put housekeeping behind. The hotel took care of our valet parking for the inconvenience as we couldn't check... More

Decent location in Greektown hotel needs a renovation and staff training. I will look elsewhere next trip to detroit. Don't get me wrong it was not that bad but there must be better. Stayed here for a father son weekend to attend the car show

Not the best hotel experience but not the worst. We went for the 2015 Detroit auto show weekend. When we arrived into our suite, very large nice looking 2 room suites with large bathrooms. Our room was only partially cleaned. When we called housekeeping they immediately came up and said the room was not acceptable so they moved us to... More
