“affordable downtown stay”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

Great place to stay for the price, staff was friendly & helpful, easy walking to Fox theater & more. I recommend going to the Ham Shop cafe down the road for breakfast, for legendary Chicken & waffles.

This was a very nice hotel and I would recommend that anyone stay here when they visit Detroit. The service was good and the staff was helpful and very nice. I did not have the chance to taste the food but I'm sure it was just as a pleasure as it was to stay there. I recommend that anyone visit this facility if they have once near you.

Great location and clean! The rooms have a good view of Greek Town and two blocks from Ford Field and three blocks from Comerica Park. Room was very clean and hotel staff were very helpful. Costs $22 night to park, but can get where you want to go on foot.

Not the best Hilton hotel I have stayed in. Rooms are not moderate nor classy. Hotel location is not bery accessible. Parking is outragious. Staff is dull. Dont walk alone during night time. Take your valuables eveywhere you go. Very close to famous casinos.

Thanks for staying and taking the time to review our hotel. We will take your comments under consideration as we continually work to improve our guest experience. I can appreciate your concern with the cost of parking. Like the other non casino hotels downtown, we do have to purchase parking spaces from the neighboring lots. We have worked hard to keep our cost down and have stayed under the price that many of our competing hotels are offering for parking.

Overall, my experience was excellent. My only issue occurred at check in. I approached the counter and the very first thing the clerk asked me was "Method of Payment?". She did not say "Welcome", "Hello", or similar. I paused for a moment and she again asked (verbatim) "Method of Payment?". I asked her if she needed to know my name and she again made the "Method of Payment?" statement. I also work in a service industry and I feel that this interaction got my stay off to an unusual/unpleasant start; every other aspect of my stay was pleasurable!

This hotel has it all.
Downtown Detroit, near the Ballpark, close to restaurants with clean/comfortable/secure rooms.
Staff was very helpful and friendly
Valet parking
Requires a hotel key to get on the elevator.
Top of the line soaps in the room
Comfy bed and pillows.
They do not skimp on anything in this hotel!

Room Tip: The higher the room the better the view.

Had two rooms reserved and they gave one away and made no effort to assist with other arrangements. Located next to bar that plays extremely loud music until 4am. Homeless people at the back entrance of the hotel--had a sense that area wasn't secure because room key required to ride elevator.
