If you are planning to see a Detroit Tigers game at Comerica Park, or a Lions game at Ford Field, or a Red Wings match at Joe Louis Arena, this hotel is perfect for you. The hotel offers free shuttle service within a three mile area. It is also convenient to other wonderful Detroit venues, such as Fox Theatre, Casino,...

Entered room and garbage was still in room from previous occupants. Shampoo, conditioner and soap was still in shower area. Did the cleaning staff fall asleep? Internet service on 10th floor is almost nonexistent.

At the beginning of my stay, front desk staff was cold and uninviting. Given, it was busy, but still hardly got eye contact or even a smile. The room was small, bathroom comically so, and the water in the bath/shower took 4 minutes and 36 seconds (yes, I counted) to get close to hot. Pool was less than four feet...

My wife and I were visiting her sister who was in ICU at Detroit Medical Center. Everyone in the hotel that we interacted with were outstanding from the valets, front desk, breakfast room and maintenance. The staff made my wife feel supported with their well wishes and words of encouragement. I would suggest this hotel to anyone traveling to Detroit....

Stayed 1 night...off to Lansing and then returned for 3 more nights....and was impressed with both! The team that helped us on arrival was helpful and not "pushy" as one sometimes finds...the reception staff and those attending to the offered breakfast were cheerful and helpful...and even house keeping was great... The room seemed to be recently renovated and the bed...

Let me start by saying that the hotel does several things really well. I stayed here for a Lions game and the location could not be beat. Easy walk to the stadium and several other venues. This also happened to be the weekend of the Detroit Marathon and the place was booked solid. Despite the crush of people trying to...

Stayed at the hotel the night of the pearl jam concert. It was located within walking distance of joe Louis arena. Breakfast was very good, only complaint was that the elevators were very slow and need upgrading. Sometimes took as long as 10 minutes just to get on one.

Decided at the last minute to book this hotel to catch Orioles vs Tigers ALDS game. Have never been to Detroit before and sorry to say we'll probably never return. Not too much to do and the city itself is pretty depressing. But this hotel has nothing to apologize for. Great location for all of the sport venues and the...
