Work & Pleasure

I stayed at the Courtyard because it was centrally located to Comerica Park and as I was working on Friday & Monday I was attending 3 Tigers games over the weekend. The walk is quite easy to the stadium (0.7 mile) or you can take the People Mover ($0.75 per person per ride) which brings you 2 blocks away from the stadium and is about a 10 minute ride. You do need to get specific coins which are available at the liquor store on premise. Greek town is only about a 5 minute walk as well. Their are several restaurants in the area as well to choose from. The hotel itself is in fine condition and this summer they are upgrading all of the rooms. We were on the 18th floor and had a nice view of Canada across the river. The cleaning lady was excellent and very thorough however I was disappointed by the TV (non HD) and the bathroom amenities (small soaps and the shower curtain always stuck to you). I always tend to stay at a Marriott affiliate to collect rewards points and this hotel is one of the better ones in general in downtown Detroit.

Weekend in the D

We were staying downtown for the weekend Country concert - Downtown Hoedown. This hotel is a hop skip and jump from the People Mover which made it really convenient to get to Comerica Park without a cab ride - saving us a few bucks! We just wish the happy hour in the bar lasted longer so we could have partaken in that. The staff and the room were great! Would definitely stay here again!

Great Downtown Location!

Went to a concert Saturday night and the Lions game on Sunday. Hotel was the perfect location for easy access to both events. People Mover stop is located right in the hotel. Excellent staff, clean rooms. Will definitely stay here again!

Perfect for People Mover

Stayed for the Eminem concert with my kids. Location is great, as the people mover comes directly into the hotel.

Perfect timing, perfect night

We booked the room for a stay downtown to attend the Eminem concert. Great location and the city was really alive that night. The staff was super fast getting us checked in and everything went smoothly.

Convenient & Consistent

Occasionally run up from Cleveland to Detroit for concerts and events. I've stayed at this particular Courtyard a few times., and they've been 100% consistent in terms of room cleanliness, readiness, and quick service, when needed. This Courtyard is close to all the concert and sports venues, all the Greektown and Bricktown restaurants, and has direct indoor access to the People Mover, and the GM Tower across the street. During winter, you can get halfway around Detroit before having to actually go 'outside'. Tons of taxis make getting out into the neighborhoods really easy (definitely worth a midnight ride to Honest John's!). The big, giant, pain-in-the-rear drawback to this place is the valet situation. Not only is the valet parking not included in your hotel stay (currently $23), but at afternoon check-in primetime - 3-6pm or so - the valet line fills up the covered parking area, and cars form a line down Jefferson Ave, waiting..... Definitely my preferred place to stay in Detroit, when I want to stay under $200 per night. But I may take an extra drive around the block next time to explore different parking options. All other aspects of this hotel are, however, a big Thumbs-Up!

Direct access to Detroit People Mover and two skyways. You can travel miles in cold Detroit weather without ever having to step outside, until you're almost at your destination. Pretty far reach from your hotel and very convenient.

Christmas at the Courtyard Marriott, Detroit

Only 2 big towels for 2 of us. Need 3 for hair and body. No service on Christmas Day at all...bed not made, no restaurant open in Hotel or coffee in lobby. That would be fine if we were told ahead of time so we could plan. Check-in people and parking attendants were just great... friendly, timely, and upbeat. We were in Hotel for a week total and really needed the room vacuumed ore than just once. Thank you to Tanya and the sweet female parking attendant.

Needs some advice.

Upon arrival last in afternoon, no small towels in bathroom. Dry cleaning was delivered to us and was someone else's in hotel. There for 6 days and only vacuumed once. Last day there, did not clean our room. Staff is friendly and parking attendants are just great. Good location.
