“Too strange for words.”
Reviewed 8 October 2010

I don't want to be mean, but this place was just so odd and irritating that it moved me to write my first ever Trip Advisor review!
It's supposedly some kind of athletic club, tho I didn't get it...and Sunday - the one day we actaully planned to use the gym - it was CLOSED! What is that?! And what's the deal with the dress code? This place is not anywhere near fancy-schmancy enough to warrant a dress code. Puh-lease!
And as a woman, I found the room's bathroom quite irritating - there was no place to put my stuff! Even tho the room was relatively large, it had a pedestal sink that was just slanted enough that nothing stayed. And so they had a little glass slef - except that was slanted, too - everything rolled off! And the toilet was next to sink, but since there was no seat cover, I couldn't really put stuff there either, for fear of falling into (public) toilet - ew! But hey - thanks for the magnifying mirror at hip height, even though there was no chair in site (odd)!
Also, the concierge desk seemed to be staffed with people who didn't know the area? Really?
Location: is was reasonably close to points of interest, but the exact block it was on was slightly scary and rundown.
On the plus side, the bed was comfy enough, and they had extra pillows in the room.

Reviewed 24 September 2010

I stayed here two nights for a conference. I didn't realize the standard club was actually a club and not a hotel. Since it was a club, it did not have many of the standard hotel amenties. No business center (from what I could tell) and no hallway ice/sode machine. Rooms were large- bed was huge. Bathroom was nice as well, although you can tell that it was little dated. My bathroom was missing shampoo. I called housekeeping twice and the front desk between the hours of 7am -715. Finally someone from the valent picked up and brought me shampoo. (promptly). I was a bit disappointed that the gym facilities were closed at 8pm. I like to work out in the evening. ON the plus side, the staff was very friendly. Parking is valent only- $35 a night. The standard club is located across the street from john marshall. The dearborn side of the hotel is fine; i would not walk down the plymouth side alone at night. One thing that surprised me was that the hotel had a dress code. Thus, I could not duck into the restaurant for a quick bite in my jeans or loiter in the lobby. On the plus side, the hotel was very quiet.
