My wife and I have stayed at The Henry almost annually for several years, attending a convention at this well located upscale hotel. However, in the past it was a Ritz-Carlton, under the Marriott franchise until changing a couple of years ago to the slightly less upscale Autograph Collection, also a Marriott brand.
I found the staff since the changeover to be less obsequious and more genuinely hospitable.
The rooms are well appointed, with very comfortable beds and pillows, wireless Internet access, and a large flat panel TV. Disappointing was the fact that the bathroom did not have an exhaust fan, leaving the mirror steamy after a shower.
The hotel has a small art gallery, with some impressive paintings both in the small shop and in the hallways on the main floor.
Banquet food was good but not exceptional, while banquet service was exceptional.
Apparently the switch from the Ritz-Carlton brand to the slightly less pricey Autograph Collection brand was made because of the greater Detroit poor economy, but we mid-westerners generally prefer less ostentatious lodging than New Yorkers, for example.
The Henry is a fine hotel, in a fine location near major freeways, with a hospitable staff, and at surprisingly afforable rates.
