I will try and make this short. I'm not a picky person and try to leave reviews that are pertinent to the cost and the experience. Cost : $175 per night w/parking of $25 Bed comfort : 2 /5. Sheets are scratchy, pillows are worn out. Room : 2/5. Horribly outdated and not kept up. Bubbling wall paper. Scuffed walls....

For a person traveling alone the room was a bit over-sized. I would have been happier with a room half the size at a lower price. The bed was super comfortable and the desk space was nice for reading etc. My only criticism is the kitschy fake plants up and down the atrium.

Centrally located but comes with plenty of street noise. Twenty minutes of an engine being revved at 2 in the morning is never good! Hotel claims to be full of suites and I have no reason to doubt that. My room was large, on a split level. Comfy enough but perhaps needs a little freshening up. Looked forward to my...

I recently stayed here. The location is great and central to anything you want to do downtown. The rooms are spacious and comfortable for the most part but need a refresh and coat of paint. Carpet could be replaced too. Could be a 4-5 star hotel but needs attention. Staff was friendly and overall a good stay for being there...

Stayed here on recommendation of friends for an event we were going to at the FOX. For downtown Detroit in Greektown it was ok. It seemed to be a noisy hotel, could hear our neighbors easily. Prices were ok and breakfast wasn't included. Could find better places to stay for same price.

My wife and I stayed at the Atheneum for our third anniversary and was pleasantly surprised with how beautiful this hotel is. The staff is an amazing group of people who are very helpful, polite, and attentive to their guests. We will definitely chose this place again and look forward to our next stay.

The Atheneum is in a great location close to bars, restaurants and the People Mover. There is a complementary shuttle that takes you within a 5 mile radius of the hotel as well. Staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. There isn't a spa at this hotel which is a downside but for the value it's hard to beat

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...
