My friend and I had never been to Detroit, so we decided to drive there from Chicago. After carefully reviewing downtown hotels, we decided to stay at the Aloft. We entered the space and we were immediately impressed with the architecture of the building. We were greeted by Jordan at the front desk. He was warm and knowledgeable about the city and placed us in a beautiful,spacious room with fantastic views of the city. Although we only stayed overnight, I was able to walk to the Riverwalk and see a beautiful Monument dedicated to escaping slaves seeking freedom in Canada. Thank you Jordan for suggesting this location and thank you the the security guard who gave me directions. We would definitely stay here again. Read less

Couldn't be happier with our stay over here! We had originally booked the Marriott Detroit Renaissance Center and had the worst experience ever so we cancelled and headed over here. We were greeted by Lorans Zoumot who was extremely pleasant and very apologetic of our horrible experience at the Marriott. He booked us in the perfect room with a beautiful view of the city. The hotel wasn't very busy because of COVID, but they still had the bar open downstairs which was a nice stop before going out to dinner. If we're ever back in Detroit, we'll 100% stay here! Couldn't have asked for a better experience!! Thank you again Lorans and the rest of the Aloft team for turning our Detroit experience completely around!! If you're contemplating staying at the Marriott, don't. Read less

I stayed here in January for one night with a group of friends while in town to watch the Raptors play the Pistons. The hotel was really cool, the room was a perfect size for the four of us, the location is AMAZING if you're going to games or concerts at Comerica Park or Little Caesars Arena, but the hotel staff really made our trip memorable.… Read more

The hotel was really cool, the room was a perfect size for the four of us, the location is AMAZING if you're going to games or concerts at Comerica Park or Little Caesars Arena, but the hotel staff really made our trip memorable. Johnea was lovely and even provided us with vouchers for the hotel bar, which was beyond welcoming. All the staff members we interacted with were funny and kind, but Johnea went above and beyond for us. I'd highly recommend this hotel to anyone in town for a game. Read less

Here it is! 2 thumbs up for being an awesome host! Again.. Thank you for everything! I definitely will be staying again!....
