Atheneum Suite Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We valeted the car, didn't receive the ticket. The bathroom needs help, peeling paint, toilet seat missing eyelets, hook on bathroom door missing. Overall needs help. Key card didn't work in the door, someone came and told us how to make it work, pull the door towards you, slip in the key card and pull fast. Shouldn't have to do that. For the price of $200/night, very disappointed. Long in the tooth - updates needed!

My Advice: Don't Valet park your car. I left my Burberry sunglasses in the car. They were stolen from the valet guy I tipped. Who the heck steals from you after you tip them well? Be careful! I was a regular (3 separate trips booking multiple rooms) and on this specific trip booked 3 rooms. I guess I won't be staying here anymore.

This hotel saw its last update in the seventies and it was most likely cleaned that time. The sink was broken, the table and doors are greasy, the tv would get better reception with a metal hanger. The bathroom had urin on the floor and the corners are dirty. This heater is noisy, the matress too soft and loud and I was afraid not to catch any bedbugs. It was a disgusting experience and I would never visit this Hotel again. I had better experience in a motel 6. Hard to believe this hotel has any stars, hard to believe they charge over $100 for a room since I would put a $49 value on it. Horrible, disgusting, filthy are the best words to describe it.

didnt take long to get me into my room staff were very hospitable rooms were really clean and room service was very nice and patient will go back again.

Hotel was wonderful but Leo the hotel manager was as rude as rude comes. His customer service skills were horrible

Never cleaned my room. I had to call for towels and forgot the face cloths. Wake up call was 15 minutes late Strippers in the lobby

Not many people in the hotel the week before Christmas...Never the less, we were given a room facing the Casino and the train rail. After asking for a different room, we were upgraded to a suite! Go figure. This is yet another example of the world wide hotel business axiom; "Give the poorer room away first, leaving the good room for the demanding customer..." Keep this in mind folks! Be fussy...

Located close to Casino, transport, restaurants and bars, concierge staff excellent, facility clean and room great for our needs.

We stayed over Thanksgiving and the following weekend - and heard every sound made in the rooms above and beside ours. You name it, we heard it! The room was decent for the price paid, but could have used a good cleaning and fresh paint. The staff were sort of a Jeckyll and Hyde bunch - sometimes terrific and helpful, other times rude and dismissive.

We booked this hotel to stay after the Lions game on Thanksgiving. The location was perfect to walk to Ford Field and the surrounding restaurants and bars. The hotel is decorated in a retro greek theme, which was cool and unique. The room was nice and large, with a sitting room and huge bathroom. The beds were fairly comfortable and suited our needs. I would definitely stay here again.

My experience at the Athemum hotel is always a good one. Staff is friendly, parking is easy, check in is fast, lobby is beautiful, On-site restaurant and walking distance to many other great restaurants Nd casino, Rooms are beautiful spacious and very clean and cozy.

Clean. Pleasant staff. Great location. Shuttle was convenient.

Within walking distance to ballpark and football stadium

Very nice and luxurious with ample space in the bathroom, living room and bedroom. Bed was very comfortable and nice heavy blankets. Nice furnishing and room was clean and the layout is nice. Within walking distance to many restaurants, bars, the casino, and many historic sites. Detroit is a very beautiful city with history and character.

Check in was a breeze. Room is so cool and so different from others. Comfy. And cheaper than others downtown. Highly recommended.

Great location with attached crosswalk to Greek Town Casino and a walk through FishBones restaurant.

Check in was fast. The hotel is older, but has been updated nicely. The suites are large with lots of room. Location for us was great.

This is a really nice hotel the staff were friendly and helpful everything was clean and suites are so nice, omg the bathtub was so relaxing, I could go on. I would stay again hands down!

Somewhat pricey, tile gout in bath should be clean. A fresh paint job is needed and the lobby bar was closed the whole time we were (3 days) there? Can't respond to wifi, desk clerk never brought it up when I checked in! I'd go back, I'm from Det......

Only downfall was putting out service please tag and didn't get any.
