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.

Good hotel, good location overall

Stayed here for 3 nights over memorial day weekend for Movement Fest. Good hotel overall, staff was friendly. Complimentary breakfast was better than most comparable hotels I've been to and was well stocked right up until 10am when they stopped serving it. Rooms were clean, although housekeeping never came by on any of the days (not a huge issue though as I was barely in the room during my stay). Only other complaint was their ATM machine was down when I needed to use it. As a lot of the people staying there were unruly young Movement partygoers so credit due to the staff for keeping the crowd well-controlled throughout the night and keeping the lobby clean. Location right in downtown Detroit and very close to everything within the city. I'd consider them again if I do Movement again next year.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Hudson Cafe has great food and one of Detroit's best brunch spots. 10 min walk. Also, Lafayette Coney Island a 5 min walk, and they are a Detroit staple.

The hotel staff and valet were very helpful and quick. location was perfect. right across the street from the people mover so you pretty much can get to all the great locations downtown with out driving. Comfortable rooms and very affordable. I will be staying here again.
