I really want to love this hotel. It's in a great area with things to do and rooms are very spacious with some nice amenities. The hotel was fairly priced for the night we stayed as well. There a few really big kickers: Noise. It truly is an issue. We stayed in room very close to the elevator so we...

Staying here for the first time to see a Wings game. This hotel is situated perfectly for many activities. Service has been excellent. Rooms are gorgeous for the price. It definitely caters to a younger party crowd and was a bit noisy. But then we weren't the loudest group for a change. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat!

I was traveling with my husband and 3 other coworkers for a business trip in Detroit. The first night there my husband and I went for a short walk. On the return to the hotel, 2 guys got on the elevator with us. Since I was on the side with the elevator controls, I asked what floor, they said 7....

I recently stayed at the Atheneum hotel in downtown Detroit, MI and was very impressed with the hotel and level of service. The room was very large, clean and well maintained. The hotel is located right in the heart of Greektown, and right next to the Greektown Casino. The hotel has a shuttle to take you anywhere downtown. The only...

Stayed here for 3 day business trip. The extra large corner room with king bed was like a small apartment. Quiet, roomy and easy indoor walk (except outside to cross street) to Greektown casino. Good alternative to more well known hotels in the area for the price.

This was my first trip to Detroit, the same for all four of us. We booked two rooms at a good price hoping it was a good idea. From the time we arrived to the time we left we met many staff members from the front desk to the cleaning people. All were very friendly and accommodating. I would recommend...

I would stay here again, as I liked most everything here, but there were a couple of things. I have stayed here several times, and each time the business center printer does not print. They send over the engineering guy who tried but could not fix, (this on 2 visits!). So they need to look into that. I can get...

Found the hotel when looking for a place to stay while attending a concert at Joe Louis. Every worker at the hotel was extremely friendly and accommodating. They were very helpful and wanted to make the stay great. The shuttle is a wonderful bonus. We used it to go to dinner one evening and breakfast the next morning. The driver...

Stayed two nights for our annual "girl's weekend". The staff was top notch, the location was perfect, convenient to several places we wanted to try. It's attached to Fishbones restaurant and you can get room service 24 hours. Valet parking quick and efficient. The best part? The room! Spacious, beautiful, divided into areas so you can stay up watching tv...
