Staff very nice except for one front desk person at check in who was quite rude.

Our stay was very pleasant but the 27.00 parking fee is outrageous. And for that we will probably not stay here again. However the room snd hospitality were excellent.

Beautiful vintage property, walkable to the city center & river. The staff was so lovely. Only negative feedback was the room furniture could use a little cleaning.

Friendly staff. Clean rooms.

Everything was really nice but the tv was very confusing.

Beautiful hotel, friendly staff, FILTHY rooms. I found hair in the bathroom, a used water bottle under the tv/entertainment center & a used Q-tip under the pull out couch! During a pandemic?!? Wow.

No vending machines available, limited restaurant hours.

This hotels facility and staff were top notch. There was nothing i needdd i didnt have.

Room was spacious, room service stopped at 1100 that's a little early

This hotel is trying..but just SHABBY in the rooms. Couch cushions filthy...tub...not clean. Everything just not nice. Too bad...wont be back. Staff tried very hard but the rooms are just not nice.

The front desk was very pleasant and helpful. The parking situation is a joke and should be disclosed on the property listing.

Pros: Very nice hotel, nice location, large rooms, free shuttle to area attractions until 10:30pm, the bartender in the hotel bar was AWESOME and helped us kick off a night out. Cons: Did not receive the room I booked - Booked a 2 queen, 2 room suite. When I checked in, I was told there were no more 2 queen suites and I would be getting a King suite instead. When I tried to press the issue since we really needed the two beds, the woman at check in did something on the computer and handed me my keys and said we were all set. When we got to our room it was a king suite... she was very nice and friendly enough but I felt like I was lead to believe I would be receiving the correct room.

Great downtown location. Just a short walk from cobo hall and the lake.
