I was pretty shocked at how BEAUTIFUL the room was for the rate I paid. This hotel is fantastic. Great location in downtown Detroit. It's in a quiet part of downtown, but I felt safe the whole time. The staff was very friendly. You definitely get your bang for your buck with the quality of the room.

Spent one night here after a Wings game. Hotel is very nice. Room was clean and spacious. Greektown is a short walk right around the corner so lots of place to eat nearby. We would stay here again and would recommend to others.

I am so angry with this place. For a 3 night stay they put us in a 2nd floor room directly across the street from the loudest, nastiest night club I have ever heard. The hotel did not appear full. Why they put us in this room is a total mystery. Do not stay here unless you plan to party...

Visited for work as marriot was booked out. Front of hotel was blocked out with ice damage. I actually thought it was closed! Brief panic! Room was fine and clean. It felt like I was the only guest. Not too many people around but that is detroit! Greektown was dead that night but it was very cold. Homeless beggers in...

We stayed Sat/Sun to go to a concert nearby. Staff was friendly and valet was quick on both arrival and departure. Room was clean and spacious with a large bathroom and separate lounge area up the stairs from the bedroom. The hotel has an art deco vibe, that some might find charming, personally find it tacky and dated. That being...

Nice hotel & location! Nice sitting area with TV & couch. Stairs take you down into the bedroom. Ask for a room with a view! Right next to the Greektown casino & fishbone resturantbin good & usually has live entertainment on the weekends.

Easy check in, friendly staff greeting us and helping us with our bags. In a nice area of downtown Detroit. Easy walk to the ballpark. Room was spacious and comfortable! Stayed with my 3 year old daughter and she had a great time!

Really nice, rooms were superb! Very unique decor, edgy vibe, 2 levels, awesome bathroom! Loved the shuttle service, got us everywhere we needed to get, plus your walking distance to Greektown, Ford Field, etc.

Everyone was so nice. The rooms are large and clean, and you can get to FishBones without having to go outside. There is a sitting room so if one person wants to watch tv, the others would not be disturbed.

I booked an overnight stay for a simple business trip. The price threw me for a loop and made me believe my room would be standard. That was far from the truth. The room was gorgeous and beyond comfortable! So modern, spacious, clean etc. Every employee I came in contact with was so pleasant and accommodating. Besides the hotel being...
