I stay at this hotel every month for business and really enjoy the location, amenities, and staff. The gym is great, and nice to have a bar onsite if you want to have a night cap. The entire staff is very service focused. Brenda is always helpful in the mornings with coffee and breakfast.

Highly recommend for ball games or concerts at Ford Field or Comerica Park. Within walking distance to everything. Also connected to the Detroit People Mover. Many restaurants and good shopping surrounds the hotel. Neat atmosphere inside with a nice hotel lobby bar. Rooms are spacious and most have pullout sofas. Valet parking on site as well.

This is a great hotel in a historic building in trendy downtown Detroit. The room was comfortable and modern. The property is historic and awesome. Great location, too, for exploring all that modern Detroit has to offer.
