A stay at the Townsend is always restful and luxurious. The staff is unfailingly friendly without being intrusive. The location is fabulous. The style is old world, but very comfortable. And the NBA teams in town stay there so sometimes you get to see the teams on the way in or out.

Our stay at the Townsend was 5-stars all the way. I've gotta start by giving a shoutout to Lamar Parker, their lead reservationist, who was incredibly professional, accommodating and empathetic...he really started our stay off on the right foot before it even began. I stay in 30+ hotels a year for business travel, and this hotel is easily one of...

Outstanding in every detail...staff, rooms, cleanliness, location, prompt service at valet..and delicious food and ambience. We have stayed a number of times when our home was under repair...we are always a little sad to return home. Lovely.

Townsend is a high end hotel with great staff and is located in the best area of Detroit, Birmingham. Especially nice at holiday time as hotel and town was all decked out. Very pleasant stay. Rugby Grill is fine restaurant and excellent for people watching in lobby.

The Townsend is a wonderful and relaxing place. The staff is exceptional. My trip was spoiled due to a lost item (left in room) not being returned. Response from lost and found was indifferent. But, the hotel is lovely. Room service is great.
