Let me start with what I believe is the best feature of this hotel -- the free shuttle to the Palace of Auburn Hills. If you want to go to a game or concert and not worry about parking or drinking one too many giant stadium-style beers, then this is the place to stay, hands down. Our shuttle driver was polite and funny, and he took us right up to the door at the beginning of the concert we were attending. Then, at the end of the concert, he was right outside the door again waiting to take us back to the hotel. No hassle, no waiting to get out of the parking lot, no driving.
Supposedly there are other hotels that offer the same service, but we did not see any other hotel shuttle busses at the end of the concert. As a matter of fact, people kept walking up to our van driver asking for other hotels. Clearly, if there were other hotel shuttles operating for the event, they were not readily available at the end of the concert.
Beyond the shuttle, this is by far the closest hotel to the Palace (literally within walking distance), plus it's new and reasonably priced. Our suite was HUGE with a walk-in closet, a wrap-around couch, desks, tables, microwave, fridge, etc. The furniture in the room looked like what you'd buy at IKEA -- the semi-disposable Swedish variety. The furnishings will probably be trashed within a few years, but they still looked fine when we were there. The bed was comfy enough, and the breakfast room was big -- but we didn't stay late enough to grab breakfast.
There was definitely some partying going on after our concert, but our room was fairly quiet and we slept well. What more could we ask for? For your next visit to the Palace, don't overlook this hotel.
