Absolutely Fine

The staff was nice. We never got a chance to use the pool but we looked at it and it was small and dark and smelled VERY strongly of chlorine. The room was fine, a little dark but we didn't do much but sleep there. The only issue was parking. It was $22 a night to park in the hotel lot. Yikes.

Good location

Our experience was good except the sleep number bed. We try to adjust both beds in the room but the beds didn't adjust. IWe will ask next time for a regular type mattress. If not available, we wouldn't stay again. Also the music in the breakfast dining room was really bad and to loud.

Great Service from start to finish!

Three of us stayed over the Labor Day weekend (couple with 10 yr old). I rented the junior suite which consisted of a pullout couch, two TVs, king sized bed, fridge, microwave. The bathroom was of good size. We were on the 6th floor and it was very quiet. All of the staff were extremely friendly and engaging - including front desk, parking valet and housekeeping. I did use the gym. It is small as well as the pool. BUT the hotel offers free passes to the local YMCA which is right around the corner. The passes allow guests to use their three pools and gym facilities. We did rent a car - $20 a night which is pretty standard at most city hotels. Highly recommend a trip to the Henry Ford Museum, Rouge Factory and Motown/Hitsville. Location - GREAT location to Comerica Park and Ford Stadium. We went to two Tigers games and the walk was less than 10 minutes. Despite what you hear about Detroit, we all felt safe.

The hotel was just right for what we needed. Great location, friendly staff. We liked the safety of knowing you need a key to enter the hotel. The room was clean, spacious, and the beds were very comfortable. Great experience!

Clerk and Hotel Policy - What a Hassle!

The hotel clerk insisted that my 20 year old son, who was checking in, have a credit card in his name to charge "incidentals" (the room was already paid for online). They would not use my card (held by my son with me on the phone) unless I filled out a form and FAXed it back. Email was not an option. I don't have a fax and it was 11:30pm. Finally, after a lot of "this is our policy" talk, the clerk called her manager (he wasn't available earlier when I asked for him) and he allowed the use of my card. What a hassle!
