My father and I were travelling to Detroit for a Labor Day baseball game vs. the Yankees. We had just spent the weekend in Chicago @ Wrigley and came here to see the Yankees. I found this hotel by searching online and reading other reviews. The reason I chose this property was for its location. It's a Hilton, so how awful could it be.
It was about a half hour cab ride from the airport. We checked in, changed, and walked to Comerica Park. It was a day game and while the area was not great, it was fine. I am in my 30s and my father is 76. It was a five minute walk to the stadium and Ford Field is right across the street. It was perfect!
Then we walked back to the hotel and went to find dinner. The one big negative was that the hotel restaurant was closed because it was Labor Day. I thought holidays did not apply to hotels, but oh well. We instead walked to another restaurant about 10 min down the road. The name escapes me, but they featured Cajun-style food. They were great.
For any sports enthusiasts in town for a Tigers/Lions game or the Final Four, this hotel is the perfect place to stay. It's affordable and so close. The rooms were nice and the hotel was quiet.
