I arrived after traveling from Los Angeles on a red eye flight. I had several early morning appointments and arrived at the hotel around 1pm. I went to check in early hoping that they could accommodate me as I was extremely tired from the flight. I was greeted at the front desk with a smile. My room I requested was...

Well located in downtown Detroit, has a shuttle service to get you around , friendly staff, warm & large size room with a comfy bed. There's no concierge & the room could be better equipped with things like a new coffee machine. It's about time the hotel was renovated/ upgraded to this decade but it's well priced. The food in...

$30 to valet park was too expensive for me. We travel to a lot of big cities and for group events, we get a group rate. They did not offer one because we were staying overnight. Guests attending the event only did get a group rate of $10. Everything else was nice. My minor issues were taken care of immediately....

excellent hotel, clean room, housekeeping was very good, kept coffee and personal items stocked.Bed made nicely, good amount of towels supplied.All requests met. The city had a water issue (drinking) and the hotel handled the issue quite well by supplying plenty of free bottled water for the asking.

I am not high society. Just an average joe who booked a room at double tree Detroit for a work conference based solely on the location. Hard surfaced furniture like the desk chair, tv stands, night stands, and mini fridge, were sticky to the touch and had dried crusty stains on them. The desk comically fell apart when I opened...

This is to much information I enjoyed the Double Tree and I would stay again if necessary and recommend it to family and friends, it is the best Hotel I ever stayed in and I have stayed in a lot of them from New Orleans to south Florida, but the Double Tree beat them all.

I stay here whenever I'm in Detroit. The beds are very comfortable and staff is so friendly and efficient. The shuttle to downtown is so convenient. I just wish the bar/restaurant stayed open later than 11:00. Overall it's a great place to stay.

This was a great place to stay. Very helpful and friendly staff. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. It was within easy walking distance to the sports venues and the COBO. I will definitely stay here again.
