I arrived at the Aloft hotel lobby from DTW via Lyft when I realized that I had lost my wallet. Just as I walked into the lobby, I received a call that my mom had just passed away. I was not expecting to be able to check in and relax in my room as I waited for my wife to arrive a couple of hours later. Will allowed me to check in without an ID or my credit card even though I was clearly disoriented and dealing with a lot of drama. He asked several questions to validate who I was and that my reservation was legitimate. Will made the most of one of my worst days in a long time, and his empathy and professionalism should be commended. Thank you Will, you have no idea how grateful I am for you today. Read less

Kevin’s old fashioneds at this bar transported me back in time. He's a legend. Makes fantastic drinks. Super cool spot. The billiards table is a nice touch and the history of the David Whitney building shouldn’t be missed during a visit to Detroit.

I stayed with a few of my friends and I had the pleasure of meeting Johnea & Janelle. They we’re very pleasant and helpful. They recommended a few places for dinner and breakfast. I’ll be back with my friends.

It's all about the people -- Will at the front desk (who directed me to one of the best pizzas I've ever had and enlightened me with his daily "words of wisdom")and Gina who made me breakfast each morning -- they were wonderful. No so great were the pillows on the bed; I had to stack all four to equal the thickness of one "firm" pillow! Clean,… Read more
It's all about the people -- Will at the front desk (who directed me to one of the best pizzas I've ever had and enlightened me with his daily "words of wisdom")and Gina who made me breakfast each morning -- they were wonderful. No so great were the pillows on the bed; I had to stack all four to equal the thickness of one "firm" pillow! Clean, quiet, centrally located, and even dogs to play with (the upper floors of the building are apartments with many dog owners who gladly share their four-legged friends with you to pet).

Hotel room was beautiful upon arrival as advertised! Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful upon arrival and made us feel very comfortable especially staff attendant host Will who checked us in. Extremely knowledgeable when asked about potential dining restaurants. I will definitely return.
