Easy check in, friendly staff greeting us and helping us with our bags. In a nice area of downtown Detroit. Easy walk to the ballpark. Room was spacious and comfortable! Stayed with my 3 year old daughter and she had a great time!

Really nice, rooms were superb! Very unique decor, edgy vibe, 2 levels, awesome bathroom! Loved the shuttle service, got us everywhere we needed to get, plus your walking distance to Greektown, Ford Field, etc.

Everyone was so nice. The rooms are large and clean, and you can get to FishBones without having to go outside. There is a sitting room so if one person wants to watch tv, the others would not be disturbed.

I booked an overnight stay for a simple business trip. The price threw me for a loop and made me believe my room would be standard. That was far from the truth. The room was gorgeous and beyond comfortable! So modern, spacious, clean etc. Every employee I came in contact with was so pleasant and accommodating. Besides the hotel being...

Fortunately I had the paper copy of the confirmation that stated this, since they did not have this on record and almost charged me $25.00 for valet. The room was nice, but someone had left trash in the coffee...

I booked 3 rooms this trip. I've stayed here on 3 separate occasions as well. My tip: Don't valet park your car. I left my Burberry sunglasses in there and the valet took them. Who the heck steals from their customer first off. Secondly, who steals from someone that tipped them well? I always tip my valets 10 to 20...

We stayed here for a wedding. I pretty much didn't sleep at all because of the noise level. The room next to ours was having a loud party at 2 am and the walls are so thin you could hear everything, as well as what was happening outside. For such an expensive hotel, I would expect some better insulation for...

This hotel is situated close to Greek Town and several reputable restaurants and casinos. The staff members are professional, the facility tastefully decorated and the rooms are beautiful. The rooms are suites with large front rooms, marble bathrooms and a sunken bedroom with gorgeous skyline views. We will definitely stay here again
