Overview

The Doubletree opened following a $90 million restoration of the historic Fort Shelby Hotel, which dates to 1917. The modernized property offers outstanding accommodations in the heart of Detroit. Tastefully decorated spacious suites feature Doubletree's luxurious beds, high-definition televisions, comfortable workspaces, and free Wi-Fi. Detroit's Greektown district, with entertainment and dining, is moments away.

Rooms

Each of the 203 suites provides guests with either a king or two queen Sweet Dreams beds. Deluxe amenities include two 32-inch LCD HDTVs with premium movie channels, games, and pay-per-view movies. Business travelers appreciate the separate work area with an ergonomic chair and complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi and wired Internet service.

Property features

Visitors relive the city's early 20th-century charm in this meticulously restored historic hotel. A blend of classic architecture, modern design, and vibrant colors create a chic feel in the enormous lobby. Famed Detroit architect Albert Kahn designed the marble tile and staircase.

OUr stay exceeded our expectations! From the minute we arrived, the staff couldn't do enough for us. The hotel was the cleanest I have been in for a long time!! even the wait staff and bartenders were exemplary. We cant wait to go back. The shuttle is a great idea and the people of Detroit we friendly and inviting!!. I am writing a letter to the GM of the hotel and to the chamber of commerce of Detroit. Antoinette, Adam, Thomas, Ken, Jasmine and Jodie provided us with a Wonderful experience

Lovely room with a view

Would recommend Mon, Dec 29, 2014
The room was excellent, the price was 30.00 higher than the person checking in at the same time as me, otherwise I have no complaints, the guy who checked me in was great, friendly and fast and the valet staff were excellent and found me a car to get to my event at MGM quickly.

Great hotel!!!

Would recommend Sat, May 17, 2014
I stayed at this Doubletree while I was taking a continuing education class in Detroit. The staff was very courteous and helpful! The shuttle service was also great-the drivers were friendly, and this was a great help, because I don't know my way around town and it was great not having to stress on how to get to class. I would definitely stay here again!!!
