My kids (8 and 10) and I stopped for an overnight at the Foundation, and it was the perfect place for us. Our staff encounters were limited to various valet and reception employees, but everyone was friendly, welcoming, and helpful to us. We loved our high-ceilinged, room, and really enjoyed seeing both the city and the way places -- like the Foundation -- are helping bring Detroit back.

I am so happy that I chose to stay at the Foundation hotel while stopping in Detroit. It's an absolutely beautiful hotel, has only been open for a year, and used to be fire station. The room was really nicely decorated, beds were ok, service is great too. From the friendly check-in, to the valet - everyone just made us feel so welcome. I would definitely stay here again anytime I am back in Detroit

Really enjoyed this small boutique hotel. Staff was friendly, helpful and personable. The hotel is beautiful and hip, my room was comfortable and had everything I needed for my 3 night stay. I enjoyed the modern yet comfortable furnishings. The hotel is a renovated fire house, and they kept a bit of that history. I appreciated it being unique and not a traditional chain hotel. I ate in the Apperatise Room and few times, loved it! Even got a salad to go. Morning coffee was great. I’m picky about where I stay and I was very pleased and pleasantly surprised by this little gem!

Recently in town for a concert and looked for a nearby hotel. Read the reviews and decided on the Detroit Foundation Hotel. Beautiful, unique place. Loved the old architecture with the modern updates. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. First class operation.

Thank you for the first class review of your time with us and for visiting Detroit for the show. Downtown Detroit is indeed the place to be for concerts, theater, and all four major sports. We are happy you chose us and hope to see you again for the next event.

Detroit Foundation exceeded expectations in all ways. The building itself is a marvel and the updates are terrific. The main open bar/restaurant lobby are a wonderful gathering place. The service is warm, welcoming and friendly. I loved the use of 'all things Detroit' in the decor and uniforms as well. The guest rooms were modern, yet cozy, and all well appointed. Nothing lacking in this place!

Room Tip: Had a room on the 4th floor and was happy with the quiet space. King room was completely roomy and comfortable.
