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.

Nice and close to Downtown activities within walking distance

Close to where I needed to be for work. The staff was very helpful through the stay.

Was in town for a concert at Little Caesar's Arena. Shuttle was great! Hotel staff was awesome. The suite had plenty of room for four. The rate was good for the room. I would avoid the valet if I had to do it over again ($32.00 per day). There have to be cheaper options near by.

Came into town at the last minute for an event at Ford Field. This hotel had the best rate for our trip, booked on the way into town. Very clean, decent food for room service and friendly staff. The kids loved the cookies!

Nice up-to-date hotel located in the heart of Detroit near many great attractions. Staff is very friendly and helpful from the time you pull up until the time you leave. Great experience!

Didn't get the room I requested and paid for, room was so dusty I woke up congested and was then charged a fee for smoking when I NEVER smoked in the room. Won't even return phone calls to discuss complaints.

We really enjoyed our stay. We only had a couple of issues. We couldn't get through to room service and our room could have been a little cleaner. The staff however were stellar. Everyone there is so helpful and friendly. We will be back.
