We’ve stayed here and reviewed this property before but noticed a few little things this time to add to the reviews.
We received a comp night for the first time after racking up some points in Vegas, so we decided to take advance of it on a Wednesday. You can no longer select which tower you want on the website. I indicated I needed wifi when I booked the reservation. I was very pleased to discover internet is free now in the rooms and throughout the casino for hotel guests.
At check-in we were given a room in the Augustus tower. We asked for the Forum tower instead to be close to the pool but the clerk said there was no wifi there. That doesn’t seem plausible to me but we took the Augustus. We’d booked a premium room online but couldn’t tell what the difference was between that and a deluxe room. The descriptions were the same. We were on the 19th floor with a partial view of the river, facing the Ambassador bridge. The room was very nice and clean.
Our biggest issue with the room was the plastic cups offered instead of glasses in the bathroom and room. We wanted to have a cocktail in the room and expected to have a glass to put it in. It seems like a small thing but it was a huge disappointment. I didn’t sleep well in the room. It was dry and the pillows were not comfortable for me, but I’ve slept well here before so I don’t think it was an issue with the hotel itself.
We’d requested the Forum tower to be close to the pool, and it is a very inconvenient hike from the Augustus tower. We gambled a little on the way to the pool, but would have spent more if we didn’t have to walk all the way back to the room to change.
I love the pool in this hotel. It has a great view of the river and Detroit skyline, it is heated to a comfortable temperature and the change rooms are wonderful. Also it is open until midnight. We swam for a while at night and again in the morning, even though the long walk to and from the pool made us a little late for checkout.
We ate at Legends sports bar and had a very good meal (burgers, salads). Their drink and beer selection isn’t great but the food is better than in the café restaurants. The prices were very reasonable. There’s also a new little bar near the entrance to the Augustus tower, where we grabbed a drink for gambling. Prices were also reasonable there.
We had a good time at the slots and appreciate them bringing in new games often. Overall it was a great stay, especially since there was no charge for the room. All the staff we encountered, except at check-in, were very friendly and the pool alone is worth the trip. We’ll definitely be back!
