There is also a late nigh famous hot-dog place (Lafeyette Coney Island) two minutes away. The rooms were great; large TV, big mini-fridge, free WiFi and two very comfortable queen beds. Downsides - were...

This hotel is conveniently located in Downtown Detroit. It is a block from the People Mover and really an easy walk to just about anything in downtown. I stayed here twice during November on business. I actually changed from the hotel I was supposed to be at for the 2nd trip to this one because it was such a great...

I stayed for 2 nights in October 2014 with friends to attend a Lions and Red Wings game. The location was great as it was walking distance from both sporting venues as well as a number of night spots and casinos. The breakfast was OK, but could have had a better selection of fruit. The bed was comfortable and clean....

I stayed here for a business trip. The staff was not friendly except for James who worked the night shift.
