I was in the Detroit area for three days built around a golf game at Oakland Hills. I chose the hotel because of its proximity to Oakland Hills and it proved to be an excellent choice. Only let down was that I never did get my bill emailed to me.

A little hotel in a quaint part of Detroit. It is similar to a European 5 Star in many ways. Good neighbourhood. Not far from golf and good restaurants. Excellent Spa service especially for relaxing the back after a 10hour flight.
