The front desk personnel are very nice, the restored (post COVID) continental breakfast was wonderful local selections and the room is spotless. It's a great location--we walked around Wayne State and took the qline to Ford Field for a concert.

Property's Favorite Review
I knew from talking to Michel while making this reservations that this would not be an ordinary hotel stay, but much more. Very personal service and accommodations made me feel like a “neighbor” in this lovely area, not just a visitor. I cannot express enough thanks to Harriet for her hospitality during our stay. She gave us dining recommendations, walking directions, and even helped us out one night when we’d locked ourselves out of our room. She is truly an asset to the Lodge and the community. We stayed in one of the rooftop cabins and were extremely comfortable. The location is quiet and we were not bothered by traffic noise/sirens/ etc. We had a nice little in-room refrigerator we were able to keep stocked with snacks purchased from a local market within walking distance. We were able to easily visit the DIA and the Eastern Market from this location. Two “musts” in the area. The physical building and grounds are a treasure to the area. It’s so wonderful to see a building slated for demolition get repurposed to help revitalize the community. I consider this hotel a rare gem and will stay there every time I visit Detroit.

It's very difficult to add to all of the excellent reviews already written about the El Moore and its fantastic team! As a solo traveller, on a first international trip since COVID, I was not sure what to expect but my expectations were exceeded on every level. A warm welcome, a lovely, clean room, great breakfast with many teas to choose from and lots of helpful advice to make the most of my stay in Detroit. Also, the new garden, market and café next door are a real bonus. I will definitelty be back!

My wife and I came downtown for a Staycation Saturday night and had an amazing experience at the El Moore. The lodge was, I believe, opened in 2013 after the major reconstruction of the original early 19th-century apartment building. Everything was top of the line. Our room was comfortable and clean and modern, the lobby area was terrific, the continental breakfast, using locally made products, was delish and the neighborhood was very nice. The grounds of the El Moore are very nice as well. We will definitely be coming back.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at The El Moore while attending a nearby concert in Detroit. We stayed in the Kasem room which was small but perfect for what we needed. It even had a window seat overlooking the park next door. The staff was VERY accommodating when we were checking in & out and even let us keep our vehicle parked in the lot after we checked out so we could shop & walk the neighborhood. Breakfast consisted of homemade quiche, fruit, and granola bars. This is a beautiful building that has been renovated. We hope to find another excuse to stay here again!

Had the worst experience with the manager Michel. Booked 5 rooms days before event cancels 1 room which was the matrons from. Said he they were sold out. I called less than a month before they still had rooms. Said he couldn’t put in touch with owner and didn’t care if I gave a bad review. I’m asking still for the owner to communicate with me to explain my unprofessional experience with Michel.

We understand your disappointment, as we ourselves are very disappointed that we could not meet your expectation of a great stay at the El Moore Lodge. We take very seriously the commitment we make to guests when they make their reservation plans with us. We back this commitment up with an extensive preventative maintenance program to minimize the chance of unanticipated issues arising. In spite of our best efforts, we had an unexpected maintenance issue arise that made your room unavailable during your reservation dates. The problem was compounded by the fact that this situation arose on a weekend that we were completely sold out leaving us no other options for your stay. We communicated this to you as soon as we possibly could. From our entire staff and management please accept our sincere apologies for disrupting your much anticipated stay with us. The Team at the El Moore Lodge

Decided to try something different for a recent Detroit visit so I opted for El Moore Lodge. Booked "Holly" which was perfect for my friend and I. The property is gorgeous, all the staff with whom we interacted were wonderful & the location is great for restaurants, bars and a visit to the Detroit Institute of Arts. Hope to return soon & book one of the rooms on a higher floor....

Decided to venture out and enjoy a weekend in Detroit despite the pandemic shutdowns. The El Moore was a beautiful home base. We stayed in a comfortable rooftop cabin with lovely views. Restaurants/dining is a challenge but Michael provided great recommendations. The area is safe, walkable and the architecture is interesting. The midtown location provides quick access to the rest of the city. Highly recommend the El Moore Lodge to anyone visiting the city for business or pleasure.

I just loved my stay here for 5 nights. It was such a refreshing change after many souless hotels. The staff and local community are a fountain of knowledge on the local area and are more than willing to help. The Palour room was a great opportunity to enjoy conversations and coffee! I hope I can return.
