Great service, rooms extremely clean and comfortable. Close to all attractions such as Ford Field , Fox Therater and all other events. Valet parking was fast and a plus to have. Staff extremely courteous and helpful.

We have stayed at several downtown Detroit hotels and this is by far the best. check in fast and easy. The valet service quick and friendly. The rooms are always clean. It is a very quiet hotel, especially for Saturday nights.

Located in downtown Detroit, this hotel is in a great location, very close to the parade and stadiums. The rooms are nice because they are suites with separate living and bedroom. It's great for a family and a nice room to entertain in since it is large enough.

Note that the complimentary shuttle does not service the airport. It is a great free way to get around a few big sights though. Bring cash to tip the friendly drivers. We were very happy with our stay here. Large room. Not luxurious but very comfortable, good blackout curtains, comfortable beds. Staff very friendly and helpful.

'Twas the night before Thanksgiving, And all through your hotel, Every Detroit partier was stirring, Making our room feel like a Vegas Motel. Our room door was locked, Heater on for white noise, But the music and screaming flocked, Till 2AM when the DJ put away their toys. We hoped to be all nestled our snug in our beds, And...

This was my first time to Detroit so I wasn't sure what I would find. After a long day of travel and a transAtlantic flight, I really needed a warm welcome. And I got it. The room was perfect and so was reception. We were too tired to go out to eat so we ordered room service. Asked that they...

Stayed here while on business at Cobo. Very convenient location. Staff was helpful. Rooms were large and comfortable. Not the best neighborhood as my colleague's rental car was stolen the first night we were there. But I felt pretty safe walking around.
