The Westin Book Cadillac Detroit

Detroit, USA

The hotel

Firing on all cylinders, this downtown Detroit hotel sits in the very engine of Motor City – with Comerica Park in one direction and RiverWalk in the other. The elegant 1924 shell of Westin Book Cadillac Detroit hides interiors that are cool and contemporary. Its fitness features include a heated indoor pool, hot tub, and The Spa Book Cadillac, where treatments whisk you from the urban excitement outside into Westin’s soothing serenity. And its five dining and drinking hubs range from Starbucks® to a steakhouse, with Iron Chef winner and TV megastar Michael Symon in the driving seat of ROAST.

Brought our 3 kids here for a little staycation. This was my husband and my 3rd visit. The kids had lots of fun in the pool, which was warm enough for adults, plus there is a hot tub. We had 2 adjoining rooms which were very large and nice with comfortable beds. Had a drink in the lobby bar which is a beautiful room. Overall, a very nice place to… Read more

This was by far the worst hotel experience I have had in my adult life. Check-in was horrendous, and finally after the 6th room, I had a room to stay in. The first was occupied by someone else, the second the key wouldn't work and they moved me again (presumably because that was occupied by someone as well), the third was the wrong room type...I… Read more
This was by far the worst hotel experience I have had in my adult life. Check-in was horrendous, and finally after the 6th room, I had a room to stay in. The first was occupied by someone else, the second the key wouldn't work and they moved me again (presumably because that was occupied by someone as well), the third was the wrong room type...I think that says enough. Finally when I did get into the room, the safe was broken, with sharp edges that would cut you if you tried to open. The remote control for the TV wouldn't work and all I could watch was the hotel preview channel for 45 minutes, until someone came (and yes I checked for buttons on the TV). Complete mess from start to finish, I would expect more from this place. Definitely the last time I stay here. Read less

Our room was exceptionally out of date and run down, as were the properties hallways, walls, carpet etc, but this review isn't about that. I can look past all of those things but I am absolutely horrified by my experience in the spa. I booked a deluxe spa pedicure to be able to relax and enjoy my stay on a Saturday morning.

Our room was exceptionally out of date and run down, as were the properties hallways, walls, carpet etc, but this review isn't about that. I can look past all of those things but I am absolutely horrified by my experience in the spa. I booked a deluxe spa pedicure to be able to relax and enjoy my stay on a Saturday morning. To say the spa is beyond disgusting and dilapidated is to say the least. I will let the photos do most of the talking. It also should be noted that could not get comfortable having a pedicure in an office chair with my feet in a bowl. I let the pedicure dry for 6 hours before putting on shoes and it still got completely ruined which points to old goop old polish. And sadly, the only soap offered in the spa bathroom to wash your hands with was DIAL blue dish detergent soap!?! Everything about this experience was absolutely shameful for a name brand like Westin and Marriott. I felt sorry the girls that worked in the spa had to work under these conditions, the lady that gave my pedicure was super nice or else I would of just walked out the second I saw the state of disarray the spa was in. And to add icing on top the disgusting cake, I got home and 48 hours after my pedicure, a freaking wart popped up on the bottom of my big toe. YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME?! I haven't experienced one of those since I went barefoot at 12 years old in my middle school locker room. I have been to hundreds of spas and nail salons in my lifetime and never has an experience been this low. Avoid at all costs!!! Read less

Beautiful upscale hotel downtown, lots of amenities, onsite Starbucks, exercise room, pool, several restaurants. Concierge lounge to boot. Spacious rooms and plenty of good views. Shaky Internet service in some rooms, but overall a great hotel.
