Was forced my reservation at the very last second. The staff was fantastic. They handled all the details for me and even picked up the cost of my parking. I didn't stay on this trip due to a change in schedule, but the property seemed great from the lobby, and I will be back.

My husband and I stayed here last weekend. It's a nice hotel. The rooms are all spacious suites that are large and well maintained. But there were a couple of odd things about this hotels. We pulled in for valet service. But while there were about 10 valets standing around talking, none of them came up to get our car....

I experienced 3 problems at this hotel. The first was that valet parking was full and the attendants were standing inside the hotel lobby "chatting." Secondly, the toilet didn't flush properly and third the remote control in bedroom didn't work. Generally, the hotel looks depressing and dated. Very unlikely I will stay here again.

I stay at a tom of different hotels around the world and didn't expect much when I came to the Doubletree. I was wrong because it was one of the most service oriented hotels I have stayed in ever. Staff was great! The highlight was the food in the hotel bar. It was truly phenomenal and very well done. I...

A group of eight checked into two suites December 9, 2016 prior to a Wings game. We had stayed here several times in the past. We again returned because the quality and price are usually above average and due to its proximity to JLA. As we had in the past, we took advantage of the valet parking. No problems. Check...

I recommend staying at this hotel to anyone visiting Detroit. The hotel is kept up very well (clean) and the staff were very kind and helpful. They even send you a text beforehand to see if there are any needs that you have that they can meet prior to check in which was nice (We were able to get a...

My husband and I booked this hotel to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. And although I am an HHonors gold member, its the first time I've received a text message from hotel staff before my visit to ask if there was anything they could do to make my stay "amazing". Impressive service! I mentioned that we would be celebrating our...

Excellent stay. We received a warm welcome from the hotel staff. The valet parking was a great addition. The cookies are always a plus. The room were very clean and the bathroom a huge. Room service was also great. We will come again.

Very nicely appointed hotel in downtown Detroit. 20 minute brisk walk to Ford Field, but one block to to the 'people mover'. Sunday afternoon arrival, rooms were not all ready since the night before was a fully booked new years eve. Very nice rooms once we had access. Both suites. Included fridge, small microwave, living and bedrooms. Breakfast is complementary...
