3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

I've been in this hotel several times in the past 8 years. Staff is always very frendly and free WiFi in every room is now available but hotel is getting oldish and worn. Carpets shall be renewed and cleaning better done

Selected this hotel for weekend break conveniently located midway between Detroit and Ann Arbor as well as value. Very surprised by the overall quality. Our room was well-equipped, modern and in very good condition. We travel quite a bit and this hotel offered probably the best accomodation for the money that we've had in a long while. Sleep sets are updated and very comfortable. Rooms are quiet even with apparent reasonable occupancy during our stay. Check in service was efficient with staff very helpful with printed directions and suggestions. The main presence during this weekend time seemed to be families on the move. As such pool and spa area was active but not rowdy. This hotel is also very convenient to a huge selection of restaurants and shopping. It is situated in arbuably Michigan's best shopping district.

This hotel is pretty terrible for business travel. The fitness center is a joke - very little and broken equipment. I sent this to Marriott and they were completely unfazed. They said they had all of the corporately required pieces...so that is precisely three: one bike, one elliptical, one treadmill. I also woke to the dumpster being emptied at 5.50 AM. Pretty awful experience. I won't be back.

Just as it says in the title, overall I enjoyed the stay. The beds were very comfortable, and everyone had a good sleep. It is also rather quiet, meaning minimum noise from roads. The TV however, isn't exactly the latest model, and there was almost nothing to watch. The room itself is clean too. I also enjoyed the breakfast buffet. This hotel has a pool, but it's not very big. There is also a hot tub, and it's really hot. One of the main things is that the hotel has free Wi-fi and a printer on the first floor. It was very convenient because we were able to find and print out some maps. One of the downsides though, is that on the lower floors, you can hear it when somebody flushes a toilet on the floors above you.

Room Tip: It's better to ask for a room on the 3rd or 4th floor, because you can hear it when somebody flu...

We stayed there for the asa girls softball nationals. It was an average hotel. Staff and pool was nice. Bed was comfortable. I usually have problems with my back in most hotel beds but not this one. It was ok for the first couple nights but I find it hard to stay for several nights in a hotel without a fridge and microwave and I've stayed in hotels for the same price that do offer both. TV was old and didn't work very well...took forever to change the channel. AC worked well. Didn't pay the $10 for the breakfast so don't know how it was. All in all I would stay there again for a night or two but not for the week.

We had a problem upon check in - a mix up with the reservation - and Ruthie the supervisor on staff did an excellent job of handling it and getting us a room.
Very nice location - good food close by.
Great for Business Travel in the area. Rooms are clean and staff was great.

We found the hotel to be average, nothing special. The room had a musty smell to it and an old tube TV. Also the bathroom towels could use to be upgraded they seemed like they could have been the same ones since the place opened. Other than that the room was great, I found the bed to be very comfy. I didnt get a chance to experience the breakfast because I caught the tail end of it, but from what I could tell it looked way better than any other hotel breakfest I've had. By far the best part was the check in process, Ruthy was over the top amazing! Normaly for a late evening check in I have found the front desk personal are normal half asleep and disinterested, Ruthy was amazing! She made us feel welcome and at home.
