Enjoy the suite life in Detroit’s lively Greektown district

The recently renovated Atheneum Suite Hotel is ideally located in the heart of Detroit's lively Greektown entertainment and dining district. Each well-appointed suite features traditional décor with modern Greek flair, fantastic city views, and oversized marble bathrooms with deep soaking tubs or whirlpools. The all-suite hotel sits adjacent to the Greektown Casino, restaurants and nightclubs, and the property is a short walk -- or hotel shuttle ride -- from a variety of other top Detroit attractions.

Highlights
  • Luxurious, all-suite hotel in the midst of Detroit's popular Greektown entertainment and dining district
  • 174 elegant suites of varying sizes, from a charming studio to a two-bedroom home away from home
  • On-site, award-winning restaurant, Fishbone's Rhythm Café, serves authentic New Orleans cuisine
  • Staffed and equipped for business meetings and events of any size
  • Valet parking ($18-$20 per day)
Rooms

Following a recent multi-million-dollar renovation each of the Atheneum's eight different-size suites guarantees wall-to-wall luxury -- from giant windows overlooking Detroit's awesome skyline to huge marble bathrooms. Every newly furnished suite features a 42-inch LCD television, complimentary Wi-Fi service, and MP3 player connections. Guests can lavish in a host of premium amenities, including a stocked mini bar and 24-hour in-room dining service.

Features

Whether traveling to Detroit for a family vacation, business meeting, or romantic weekend getaway, the Atheneum's guests stay in elegant style. The impressive marble lobby features towering figures from Greek mythology. Ancient tradition gives way to modernity, however, with the range of upscale services available, including a well-equipped fitness center.

 

While the Atheneum's prime locale puts guests in the midst of some of Detroit's finest cuisine, only steps from the lobby are four distinct dining options: Fishbone's Rhythm Café (New Orleans cuisine), Mosaic (international), Pegasus Taverna (Greek), and Pappy's Sports Bar and Grill.

Nice Hotel, Bad experience

I can truly say the rooms were beautiful. The help was great as well however we had a horrible experience. While we were there people near us were having bachelor and bachelorette parties. Right next door to us at about 1 am there was a fight and we heard everything. Called security only for them to solve the problem for 20 mins. After that at about 5 am was another fight down the hall. We understand that its not fully their fault however we do believe it should have been monitored and people should have been killed out for disturbing the peace. This may have us NEVER come back :(

Amenities great

My experience was great after I finally got my room. The hotel did NOT have my online reservation. But they gave me a room based on having my confirmation email which was very nice. And because of the wait, we got an upgraded room. Overall, a very nice and enjoyable stay!

Great Hotel

Stayed one night, everything was great. Requested a few extra things and they were brought up before I could even get back upstairs! Great quality room, great lobby, located downtown next to several local hot spots. Very cool will do it again soon!
