Perfect location for all sports venues

Not a bad thing to say about this facility. One block away from People Mover, elevated rail that encircles downtown. Easy to get anywhere for a mere 75 cents. If that doesn't work, the hotel has a shuttle that will take you anywhere within 3 mi radius. Store within walking distance to pick up beer, snacks, grocery items. More than adequate hot breakfast served by a top notch staff that doesn't let anything run out! Rooms clean and comfortable. Constance in housekeeping deserves kudos also. Thanks for a good stay!

poor customer service

As noted in the title, the customer service was sub par at best. I wouldn't stay there again, nor would I recommend it for anyone else.

Solid Holiday Inn in central location

I stayed here while in town for some meetings downtown and it was surprisingly quiet and pretty nice. Nothing special but good enough to return to. Recommended for those looking for a good value in a central location.

Detroit Downtown Vacation

Good place to stay when visiting Detroit for a few days to take in a Tigers game, visit with old friends, check out old neighborhoods where we lived 45+ years ago. Very friendly staff, good valet service to retrieve your car when you need it. Walking distance to many areas (Comerica Park, Cobo, RenCen, etc.) Would stay here again.
