Great location. Access to the downtown area,free shuttle and convenient valet parking. Staff were friendly and very welcoming. Room service was always right on time, orders were accurate, food was delicious. Overall this was an excellent choice I would definitely stay here again. It would serve as a nice romantice get away

Always loved this place, stayed many times. Unfortunately this most likely will be the last. Hotel is nice enough, great location and love the deep tubs which was one of the reasons for this stay but to our dismay the water pressure was pitiful, no lie it would have taken 2 hours to fill the tub up. After a call... More

A group of 10 of us stayed at the Atheneum November 24th. We had Curtis shuttle us to and from our tailgate location. He was super friendly, hilarious and accommodating to putting up with a group of 10 of us. We had a smooth check in and our bags were stored for us until check in was available. The hotel... More

Stayed at the hotel in August 2016. Hotel is older but clean and central to Casino & Greek Town. Has a shuttle service for places within 5 mile radius of hotel which was very handy. No free parking. It is half price if you stay at hotel. Close to Greek Town restaurants and Fish Bones is excellent. Casino is across... More

I stayed there this week for one night and must say I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel and its staff. Firstly, the location is perfect and the rooms, I thought, were very clean and spacious. Secondly, and most importantly, the staff is wonderful. From the reception, to the doorman to the valet guys. I had lost my phone that... More

I was on the 3rd floor. Very large and roomy rooms. Had a sunken bathtub, mini refrig, and more. I was very happy with my stay. The room had 2 rooms separated by a door. There were 4 steps down to the 'bedroom' area.

We had a group of three couples attending a show at the Fox Theater and decided to stay downtown. This was the perfect place to stay. The rooms are spacious, clean and nicely decorated. The bathroom is huge and I enjoyed a nice relaxing soak in the deep tub. The price was very affordable. We walked everywhere once we got... More

I attended a conference at The Atheneum and decided to stay for 2 nights - since it is right in the middle of Greektown - and walking distance to most downtown attractions. The place looks very formal with a nice entrance and a spacious lobby. The only problem was the lobby was half taken up by a painting crew with... More

We recently stayed one night at The Atheneum in Greektown. We were visiting Detroit for a wedding and did receive a special rate for our room and valet parking. Our room was on the 8th floor, overlooking the Greek Casino. The room was a suite, with a sitting area and tv right inside the door. There is another door leading... More

The hotel is nicely appointed and the lobby area was tastefully decorated. We were very impressed with the suite, the only downside was randomly placed pillars that created bottlenecks in the room. The hotel is ideally located for Greek-town but does provide a complimentary shuttle for other areas of the city driven by a real character called Captain Tony. He... More
