Holiday Inn Express Detroit - Downtown
Ranked #17 of 33 Hotels in Detroit
Reviewed 13 April 2015

After a long 17-hour drive on a charter bus, we brought a group of 30 to this property for the Shell Eco-Car Marathon and could not have been more pleased with the hotel property and service. Conveniently located close to the Cobo Center, we were thrilled with the security provided at the hotel, the proximity to the People Mover public transportation system, and the excellent shuttle service offered to get us anywhere within 3 miles of the hotel. Everyone from the front desk to the support services on site were incredibly friendly and helpful--there is no way to adequately express how gracious everyone was as well as committed to making sure our stay was everything we wanted or needed. They were especially helpful when special requests where made in order to work around unforeseen circumstances. Special thanks for exemplary service to Darius at the front desk, Carolyn and Joyce in the breakfast area, the entire team from housekeeping, and the wonderful shuttle drivers who served us. Without a doubt this will be our hotel of choice when in the Detroit area again. Bravo!!

Room Tip: Our room was on the 14th floor and in an excellent location. We had no problems with noise at all.

We stayed the second year in a row at the Holiday Inn Express in Downtown Detroit. The front desk staff is super friendly and helpful. The food staff, especially Carolyn and Kimberly were very attentive to us and the other guests. They made sure the food was hot and well stocked, and the dining area was very clean and inviting. The food was delicious and kept us full for the day of fun downtown for opening day festivities. We look forward to staying with you again in the future and highly recommend your place to our friends and family.

I was just in from a 3/day trip and Tired at 7am Easter Morning. My my luggage had not made it with me along the trip or to the hotel.

As I walked in to check in the hotel I was met by Darius Hollowel. His professionalism was on point & he seem to care about my travels as well as my reservation.

As he checked me in the hotel he upgraded my room to a suite and assured me that if there was anything else that I needed it would be no problem. I like to say THANK YOU to Darius Hallowell for being and exemplifying great customer service.

My room is gorgeous and I will be extending my stay...

After a long travel day it was nice to be greeted by friendly and helpful valet parking attendants. Helped with our luggage and directed us inside to the registration desk. Friendly person who gladly extended our check out the next day by an hour.
Room (718) was spacious. Rainfall shower head was not very good, low water pressure, but adequate for our purposes.
Breakfast buffet VERY good (came with our room price) Several flavors of yogurt. Hot foods included biscuits and sausage gravy. Although the sausage gravy looked great...chunks of sausage, the taste was not to my liking. Biscuit was excellent. Husband had oatmeal, and good coffee. Attendant constantly involved with cleaning, refilling, etc.
Since I was not able to find a suitable jazz venue with dinner, and our bodies were having a hard time adjusting to the cold weather (we live in Florida), opted for dinner at the restaurant connected by interior corridor to the hotel. (Review of restaurant in another post)
Free WiFi was easy for my husband's phone to connect with.

Room Tip: We stayed on a Friday night, and there was little, if any traffic. Quiet facing the main street. (W...
