Staff friendly, room OK, not worth the $200+ paid, breakfast and room are typical HIExpress, bland and filling with all the wrong calories. Breakfast starts at stated time, NO earlier, period. So if you have an early morning doings, you'll miss your breakfast. Which might be a blessing for those of us with no willpower. Ha! Coffee is always available. Remember the price you are quoted does not include the $27 valet parking per night.
Street noise at night is incredibly loud, especially Friday and Saturday nights, and well into the morning. Loud mufflers will keep you awake, but it is downtown, so that is to be expected.
Neighborhood is terrible, actually most of downtown Detroit is terrible. There is never a feeling of being safe when walking around. I escaped a probably confrontation by my training from NY. "Never acknowledge a stranger speaking/calling to you, be ready to attack ferociously if hands are laid on you, always be situation-ally aware of your surroundings. Words for the prepared." This has nothing to do with the hotel, just the surroundings if you walk.
Abandoned high rises surround the hotel, not hotel's fault, but be aware of the type of citizens that accumulate there.More
