I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights over a weekend, sat/sun/mon.
My room was fine, everything as it should be, clean and tidy and a comfortable bed to sleep in with a good shower and tv.
My only gripes are the so called 'Business Center' which had the only PC with internet access for the WHOLE hotel, which was ridiculous imo. Also the fact that it was a crap Pentium III which was terribly slow due to the amount of things that have been installed on it over the years. It doesnt cost anything these days to get a basic internet ready PC that will run fast - get this sorted Holiday Inn!!!!!!!!!!!
Also the staff on the front desk were not very friendly either, they just about helped me out except for one guy who was very helpful in sorting out the bus routes i needed to get to the henry ford museum in dearborn - other than him the rest did not make much of an effort.
The bar/restaurant that was joined onto the hotel was good to go for some drinks and i met some friendly people there who told me about detroit - but the food i got wasnt that great so maybe just stick to the drinks.
But all in all it was a good experience and i would stay there again.
