I love historic hotels, and safety, cleanliness, centrality, and affordability will often make me tolerate more "funkiness" than the next traveler, but I'm afraid that I cannot recommend this hotel in Downtown Detroit. The lobby was lovely, and full of the fascinating history of this almost 100-year-old hotel, but the room we stayed in for 3 nights looked as if it had been "renovated" and painted by your nephew who you're trying to keep off the streets. The rooms was cold, heated by a central system that the desk assured me "comes on automatically every 2 hours"). The first night, we had two bottles of hand lotion, no soap, no shampoo and one set of tiny towels for two registered desk. The room was barely clean, but didn't smell fresh. The third night, the room hadn't been made up. The security guard was friendly and extremely helpful; the evening front desk attendant was bored, rude, and wouldn't even call a taxi for me one night (I stood in front of her and called several companies that wouldn't pick up their phones before finding one) and any question asked of her was met with a sullen, "I couldn't tell you." When I asked her if I could have an unforeseen third night at the same rate as the other two, she tried to charge me $25 more, though the day-time attendant said they make this accommodation routinely. Noise travels easily between other rooms. The breakfast (included) was OK, on a par with standard budget motel offerings.
