My husband and I stayed at the Marriott while visiting our son at Michigan State and were VERY happy with our choice. The room was super-clean, had terrific modern decor, & a great shower. Lobby was spacious and pleasant, staff friendly. Location was ideal -- right next to campus. Our only complaint was that the coffee could have been better... More

I booked a surprise date night for my husband at this location. I wanted something close, with easy access to a lot of activity choices. This hotel has gorgeous rooms and is very centrally located to MSU and a lot of activities. The disappoint comes from the fact that we stayed on a day where the power went out. We... More

This hotel has good connectivity. The Michigan Flyer drops/picks you up from DTW from right outside the hotel. Very good staff with great customer Service quotient. The buffet breakfast is good but can be improved with more varieties of Vegetarian items.
