“Centrally Located - Good for a Weekend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2010

We booked this hotel from hotwire.com and paid only $59.00 for one night. We were there to see a baseball game at Comerica Park, and it was a great location for this event. The room was quite large and clean with coffee, tea, microwave, and fridge. We came home a bit intoxicated and had a very comfortable sleep on the hotel bed.

Other than the next-door restaurant (Big City), there was not a lot in the general area of the hotel. However, the People-Mover is quite close by (one block) to take you to Greektown and other parts of downtown. Overall, a good value especially because of hotwire.

Stayed there because we needed to got to the Canadian Consulate in the GM Ren Cen. We booked on htwire and got this room for about 75$ + taxes. Check-in and check-out was fast, the staff were helpful. Valet parking was 18$. They also have a shuttle that drops you off at downtown locations. The room was clean but dated. Very functional, no frills. For what I'd paid for, it was reasonable value. The breakfast was pretty good too.
The only downsides to our stay were road noise in the hotel room and that the toilet seat would not stay up when used by men.

My wife and I joined a tour group that had booked this HIE. Our stay was for only one night.

The public areas of the hotel were clean and comfortable, as was our room accomodations. Pleasant service from all staff we encountered. Good location in downtown, just west of Woodward Avenue, and walking distance to Foxtown area and the stadiums. Lots of street traffic during the day, which enhances the location.

Big City Grill is the hotel restaurant and lounge, and they serve from a well put together pub food menu. The Grill features Karaoke at night, so it is loud and boisterous.

HIE is just around the corner from Layfayette, and American Coney Island, too. So anyone wishing to sample these Detroit treasures, are just a stroll away from a blissful experience.

Staff could not do enough. Valet Parking- $15/night- courteous and prompt. Always offered directions and advice. Front desk made certain to ask about our day, about our plans. The room was clean and fresh feeling and there was no external noise through our 3 nights stay. The van on request was available and we used it once to get to the River Walk. Next time we'll use it more. The People Mover was a short block away and we had no problems getting on. Breakfast was a full amount, not a bagel and banana. Coffee and tea in the lobby at all times. So pleasant....We'll return..

The breakfast is truly a "hot breakfast", the facilities arevcomfortable, the exercise room is well-equipped and the pool is right-sized for groups. The employees are very friendly and helpful.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for the 2010 Frozen Four. We paid a little more than we normally would have for a Holiday Inn, but since it was a special event weekend, this was to be expected and we were happy to be downtown and near the People Mover to get back and forth to the games. The Holiday Inn Express more than met our needs. We arrived early in the afternoon and our check-in went quickly. Our room was fairly spacious and although the hotel is listed as recently updated, did show some signs of age. The bedding and decor had been changed, but the carpet and paint could use a little updating of their own. The bed was surprisingly comfortable and we both slept well, which is unusual for us in a hotel. The breakfast was well-stocked and went quickly despite a packed hotel. The staff did an outstanding job of moving things along on all 3 mornings we were there. The valet parking was reasonably priced and very efficient, especially considering the crowd.

In short, if you're in town for an event and need a convenient place to sleep, the Holiday Inn Express would be a great choice for you.
