Reviewed February 25, 2013

Had a one night stay at this Marriott and was impressed.

Greeted as a Platinum Member and given a very nice welcome snack selection and a great room on the 6th floor.

Room was not huge, but very comfortable, big work area with several plugs for the various electronics I carry when I travel. Also had the option of connecting to the TV with my tablet / computer.

Concierge lounge was nice with a great spread for dinner. However, someone decided that it was a great idea to bring 3 misbehaving little kids into the lounge and let them run around. I felt bad for the lounge attendant who had to deal with this group.

Directly connected to Laurel Place Mall, and if you're not from the area, I recommend a quick stop at Sanders for some amazing chocolate, a cream puff, or a slice of bumpy cake (trust me, you won't be sorry).

All in all a nice hotel that I will use again when I'm in the area.

Dear Randy from Buford, GA:

On behalf of the Detroit Marriott Livonia, I would like to take this opportunity to extend our sincere gratitude to you for your thoughtful and generous review of our hotel, the Detroit Marriott Livonia. We have the unique benefit of being attached to a mid size upscale mall, and your recommendation to visit Sanders is a great suggestion as it was a Michigan favorite for many years and is a hidden gem. You had also highlighted our guestroom features such as the uni-port connectivity panel, concierge lounge and quality of food, which is so very kind. What I found to be of utmost importance was that our front desk team took the time to value your continued loyalty through recognition and I can't begin to thank you enough for taking the time to point out. Please know I will be sure to share your comments with our entire management team as a model of how we should treat all our guests.

With regard,

Danielle Bastianelli

Hotel that is directly connected to a mall with numerous restaurants is great in a Detroit winter. Overall, very clean room, but on the small side. Everything worked and was clean. No complimentary lobby coffee or tea though, and I never saw a business center, but overall very friendly and nice service. Pool, whirlpool and workout room were terrific. Overall, except for the smaller size of room, it did have a large flat screen, and everything worked in room! Had a large closed, but lacked a refridge or microwave. Internet service in room was very good as well. Very good hotel.

Room Tip: Use the pool, whirlpool and excercise room off the lobby and walk to the mall without a coat!

Dear Senior Contributor from Cleveland, Ohio;

We at the Detroit Marriott Livonia wish to thank you for your detailed assessment of our hotel. Even though our guestrooms are newly renovated noting that we are clean and friendly relates to our service performance and we are pleased you found them to be "very good". Because our hotel is a full service Marriott, typically a mini refrigerator is not usually in each guestroom but we would be happy to provide you with a refrigerator upon request. Also we do have a business center which should be expanded within the next year. I was disappointed to hear you mention that we did not offer complimentary coffee/water, which is usually always available right next to our front desk, so I will be sure to pass along your comments to our team to ensure this is being done daily.

Again thank you for your insight; it is extremely helpful in helping us to provide all our patrons with the expectations they have and deserve when staying at a Marriott hotel.

With regard,

Danielle Bastianelli

My wife, myself and our toddler recently stayed the night at this property for a little getaway. We were treated extremely well, even getting an unrequested room upgrade. The restaurant in the hotel is top notch including their buffet breakfast. The hotel is connected to the very nice Laurel Park Place mall with nice shopping and a couple of more nice dinner restaurant options including Bar Louie. Great location, great customer serice. The hotel itself is a bit older but had been updated and is clean. Great pool area for kids too. We absolutely LOVE Marriott Jamison beds too.

Stayed at the Marriott for a wedding close by. The price was great. The beds are so comfortable at Marriotts. I could sleep for days. The only downfall that I would have to say is the breakfast costed $13. Overall loved my stay.

Dear Diane;

Thank you kindly for taking the time to note your thoughts and concerns regarding our hotel, the Detroit Marriott Livonia, on TripAdvisor. We are pleased to learn that you had enjoyed your stay and found our guestroom amenities a comfort. Often when working with contacts on a social event such as the one you attended we will offer both a breakfast and non breakfast inclusive rate and it is at the discretion of the person working directly with the hotel to select. Please know that if you were to wish to reserve a block of guestrooms for a special event such as the one you attended, we would be happy to include breakfast in the rate. Please know we greatly value your recommendations and suggestions and hope you will still consider us a nice local home away from home retreat.

Sincerely,

Danielle Bastianelli

This is an average Marriott property. The room we were assigned was fairly small. Strange, not much space for towels in the bathroom, so towels were placed on small table outside of bathroom. Staff is really nice and check-in is a breeze. The room was clean and up to Marriott standards. Hallways could definitely use a facelift. If you are looking for decent nights sleep in a reliable hotel, its a good place for you. Don't expect luxury or anything above average (in terms of amenities, the room, etc.).

Typical Marriott experience. Super-convenient location for auto industry road warriors, reasonable room size and amenities, friendly staff. As is often the case in these types of secondary market properties, however, attention to detail was lacking. Example: Bathroom sink drained leaked like a sieve, notified housekeeping, next day it was still flooding the bathroom floor. On a very positive note, concierge level snacks and light meals were terrific. I'd stay here again if the rate was right.

This is a nice full service hotel, great facilities. Everything you need is here, restaurant, shuttle service, 24 hour store. There is a mall connected to the hotel so its very convenient. The staff is great too, everyone is so nice. What I did not like was the value and price. The standard room is small, and for what I paid I dont think it was worth all that money. I felt I paid a high price for the number of amenities instead of a better room. Nevertheless, the room was very clean and nice. On Sundays, this Sweet Lorraines has a great brunch buffet!

What a nice review; out of 6 categories, in 4, you ranked us 5 out of 5. I was happy to learn you felt our staff was great and that our hotel had everything one would need when traveling, including a great brunch buffet and attachment to mall. I know you had some misgivings about the value of your stay, and I want to assure you we keep a keen eye on the market and are very competitive. We offer many options to obtain discounted pricing such as our package offers and advance purchase rates. In fact we are unique in that our advance purchase rates do not have a "no refund" policy associated with them which most of our competitors require. We continue to strive to offer our guests the best of accommodations at a good value. Knowing that you have submitted many hotel reviews, you understand the importance this medium has in helping us to achieve this goal, and for that we are most grateful.
