“Excellent & affordable in great location.”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

We ALWAYS stay here (well, one year we could not get in & that was no fun) and always will. We live in WI and come for the Detroit Marathon every October. Staff on the phone and in person are always helpful & patient. Breakfast was good and they even crisped up my bacon for me. Comfy room, fast valet service, always polite & cheerful staff. We travel around the country & in the UK and many hotels have staff that seem to lose their cool when it is a super busy event. Elevators were efficient, and they drove me to my friends house in the hotel shuttle. Her house is not in the best neighborhood so she suggested I take a cab, but the shuttle dropped me right at her door. Also, good air temp control. Anyway, definitely a good value and a good experience. Congratulations!

Room Tip: We never hear street noise from floors 5 & up, not sure about lower floors.

We stayed during the weekend of the Detroit Marathon in mid October . It was one of the best lodging experiences we have ever had. Staff was very friendly and accomodating. They called to make sure all was well and were very prompt with our requests. They were packed for the marathon but did a great job keeping the breakfast buffet stocked with goodies including food that runners appreciate. Kudos!

This is a perfect location for the marathon. Plan to book it again next year.

Great staff! Thanks for a great weekend.

The staff at this hotel was good, the breakfast decent, and the room comfortable, However, it was a little pricey for nothing memorable. Good location. Elevator was loud although I was not very near it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the elevator

Thank you for rating our hotel on Tripadvisor. We appreciate any feedback that we do get from our guests. Being the lowest priced in the downtown area, offering the amenities that we do, and the warm-hearted staff, are the reasons we feel that our guests continue to choose our property when in the downtown area. Our rates are competitively positioned with the other hotels in our downtown market. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you feel this is not what you received.

We stayed for one night in this friendly hotel. All the staff went out of their way to be helpful and courteous. Although I'd read others' complaints about the Valet Parking, we got fast, efficient service. Highly recommend this spot for a budget friendly stay-over.

A 10 minute stroll to the ball park.
Friendly staff, from the lads at the door to the staff at the reception...... spotlessly clean room..... and a surprisingly good breakfast that was more than the "continental" spread that is so often the norm.

Now if only the Blue Jays had bothered to show up..........
