Old-world charm and comfort in a modern setting

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.

Highlights
  • Meticulously restored historic hotel conveniently situated in downtown Detroit
  • Three excellent on-site dining options
  • Executive meeting center featuring 21,000 square feet of flexible space
  • 24-hour fitness center with top-quality Precor machines
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.

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.

Precor elliptical machines, treadmills, and stationary bikes -- plus individual television monitors -- make working out easy in the 24-hour fitness center.

 

The Finn & Porter Restaurant is known for great steaks and sushi flown in fresh from Hawaii. Before or after dinner, guests savor snacks and drinks at Finn & Porter Round Bar. Busy days start with gourmet coffee and smoothies at Bear Claw Coffee.

Great hotel!!!

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!!!

Good location for Lions/Tigers game

Two room Queen Suite was very nice and the staff very friendly. Would definitely stay again. The Valet charge is a little high at $23 per day IMO. However, if your in Detroit for a game or event like I was, then your going to be paying for parking anyhow so the valet then becomes a better value.
