Typical purpose-built Embassy Suites of the old era are tall, fortress-like cubes with internal atria that smell of pool chlorine. This property, which apparently used to fly another brand flag, is very different -- and not bad at all.
it's only three stories high. The bright extended lobby resembles a small shopping mall food court, with lots of seating, stations for the trademark gratis happy hour and breakfast buffet, plus a little vest-pocket bar and an easy-to-overlook counter that retails sandwiches, etc. (There's no formal restaurant.)
Rooms are recently redecorated and very pleasant with vibrant colors and fabrics, flat-screen TVs and mini-kitchens including fridge and microwave.
The air conditioning was laboring at max effort during our stay - big heat wave in progress - and while our room was fine the common area was warm and muggy. One big if well-intentioned mistake is the popcorn popper that's part of the happy hour snack lineup; the whole zone stinks of hot pseudo-butter and charred kernels.
The neighborhood is all you'd expect from a strip on the airport perimeter, e.g. not much. A lot of other hotels, a sketchy gas station, and nondescript office parks. We drove off in search of a proper dinner with a menu and a waiter, etc., but couldn't find anything appetizing and ended up at McDonald's. DTW rental car return is three minutes away.
You're unlikely to stay here more than one night given the location, but it's good value and the rooms are excellent. Parking is free.
