Excellent location on River Walk; still some rough patches in the neighborhood, but very promising locale. Older brick building has character, high ceilings, deep window sills. Staff I interacted with was friendly and accommodating and did their best to guide guests through the travails of sub-par facility Problems with the older building have not been corrected in the remodel. Water and heating/cooling system are poor. Maintenance of facility is sub-standard (faucets were loose and dripping, for example). Cleanliness could be improved - baseboards were dusty/dirty, bedding was stained, sticky surface on table, etc. Given its location and possibilities to be a much higher-end boutique hotel, remodel should have been of higher quality, from systems upgrades to carpeting, furnishings, amenities, etc.
The hotel was falling apart. In my room alone, there was wallpaper falling off of the walls, unfinished trim, damage to the walls, electrical sockets that were loose in the walls, all of the buttons were missing from the phone, and the quality of the picture on the television was terrible. I have no plans to stay here again, regardless of its value or its proximity to downtown Detroit.
Nothing. We had booked this hotel via kayak. When we arrived to the hotel after being tired from traveling we approached the two ladies at the desks. The one lady asked us if we were checking in and we said yes. She then asked if we had a reservation and we said that yes we did. She asked for the last name which we gave her (and spelled for her) and she very rudely looked at us and said "What???" So I spelled it for her very slowly again. She then rudely said "Just give me yo ID". So we did. She then said "When did ya"ll make this reservation??" I said "Earlier today, I can give you the confirmation number..." She then interrupted me and said "No we don't have no rooms, we full". I said "Well can you look at the confirmation number maybe..." Interrupted again "Nothing I can do, contact whoever you got the reservation from." So we left. So rude. Not willing to help us find another place or work with us. Nothing. Contacted kayak and they were amazing. Refunded us the cost and helped us find a hotel.
The receptionist was very accommodating regarding mistakes that I had made in the online booking and took care of me and my five year old son promptly. i would have liked a heavier blanket and the pillows were very big and puffy for my neck.
Location, friendly staff, beautiful building Limited kitchen hours, view from particular room we were given
I stayed here for my honeymoon. I asked for room to be clean and sheets changed the 2nd day. 3 hours later when I came back it had not been cleaned. spoke with various front desk staff and they were not friendly at all. Eventually it was cleaned after going back and forth with the staff.
The location was nice and the view Well the first night was ok they didn't have a mini refrigerator in the room I would think $160+ regular price that it would be included, and they wanted to charge us 20$ a night to rent the mini refrigerator.. The first room we were in had these shear white curtains, looked nice bad idea. Especially if you're a late sleeper. None of the rooms had hand soap in the bathroom, either one of are rooms didn't have heat or air conditioning. Our tv didn't really work in the 2nd room, and we didn't "do not disturb signs. My biggest issue with the hotel was I didn't feel secure enough to leave my Car in their lot. Two cars got stripped in the parking lot left on bricks all four tires gone, I asked where security was he said he was inside. Inside for two cars to be stripped of their tires. I felt unsafe and I definitely won't be staying at this hotel again
Staffs were really friendly. Bed was very dirty/they did not wash the sheet/they also did not clean carpet. room was very very dirty ever i had seen.
The waterfront view and the easy access to the river walk from the hotel was a big plus. The rooms are spacious and clean bu not everything was functioning. My room's hairdryer didn't work and the tv channels offered left much to be desired (not a terrible tragedy). It had parking. The staff was courteous. It's not a five star hotel but it's charm can grow on you. Given the opportunity, I would stay here again. The hotel is not handicap friendly and is in need of renovations. The parking areas need to be repaved and should be better lit. The city should fix the potholes on the streets leading to the hotel. The restaurant menu was okay. There's definitely room for improvement all around.
Keep in mind this is not a 5 star hotel, and this is not Greektown, this is an old building right on the river. There are some flaws, but the location is great, felt really safe, and the staff was friendly. The bed was really clean and comfortable. I'm surprised to see bad reviews about this hotel - I couldn't find anything to complain about! Was really surprised, would definitely stay there again. I'm glad I didn't listen to the negative reviews!!! Some cosmetic flaws, but this did not impact our stay or our perception of the hotel.
You guys set me up with an agency who doubled booked me. I would recommend following up with the various agencies first to see if your customers actually stayed at the hotel, instead of shooting out these emails that don't make you look good.
clean room and nice view took 2 hours to ck in !! cant get must worse then that!!
Front desk staff were pleasant and accommodating. General condition of the hotel was poor....halls, elevator,etc. Work out facility was not available.
the front desk staff were very helpful and did more then needed to make my stay great especially shaun
The breakfast was good. The manager went out of his way to make our stay good.
I liked the location, nice and close to the centre (10 minute walk). Breakfast was o.k. considering it was free and for the price of the room ($70). Free parking is good. Rooms were clean & good bathrooms. Friendly staff, always helpful. Corridors/communal areas seem a bit shabby, but fine really.
Desk workers were helpful. Overall, it was clean. The bathroom floor was sticky. I refused to take my socks off or take a shower. It was alright for a cheap place to crash while in town for a night.
Good for a quick stay if you're not going to be in the hotel except for sleeping
The staff was pleasant. The location was great. The bed was very comfortable. We were surprised on the bed! The price was right in our budget for that particular wknd. Thank you! We waited like a half hour for the shuttle so we were late for the concert. But once he picked us up he was very knowledgable and brought us right to the front ticket entrance. The was nice! The late night pizza place...I believe it was called Tamarack or something was absolutely a joke. They forgot our order. We called back 2 times after the order was placed and finally got pizza at 3:30 in the morning. Pretty sure the place was already closed for quite sometime. Anyway an experience it was. But I guess I would definitely stop recommmending that place to people. It was the worst pizza take out experience we have ever had!
The Manager was very friendly. The ice machine on our floor did not work
The remote, the curtains and alarm clock were broken.
While overpriced for the age, it was the least expensive hotel in the area by $100. Staff was rude at check in. He hardly spoke English, and was on the phone with someone else while checking us in.
I was double charged
Cheap Room smelled like smoke very bad, could not sleep. Door was very loose, no safety latch.
The staff was pleasant when I decided to check out earlier. Not clean. The outside and inside of the hotel are filthy. The entrance is so hidden I was afraid to get out at night or early morning. I checked out after the first night at 6:00 am.
The staff were very friendly
It was horrible dirty nasty and the heater was loud
friendly and helpful staff - good value for money
The idea that the Clique restaurant is attached is a bonus
location near renaisance center, breakfast at attached diner
Within walking distance of Greektown! I rooms we cheaper on there sign then on this site. The double rooms have better beds.
Staff were nice and pleasant. Everything else pretty abysmal. An older facility that didn't feel safe, clean or comfortable. Dirty shower and towels. Didn't even look at state of sheets for fear of what we would find. Came out covered in flea bites. Very noisy. Wouldn't stay again or recommend. Stayed here only as rest of city fully booked - paid way too much as a result on top of it all. Would travel out of town to find a room next time.
the staff (one young gentleman in particular) was very welcoming & helpful. He helped with directions, maps, things to do & made arrangements to check us in hours before the normal check in time. The location of this hotel is great. We love to walk everywhere, and we found everything to be within reasonable walking distance (in town for a football game) but there is a cheap 50 cent train ride to take you everywhere too my only complaint about this hotel was the noise at night. I'm assuming it was louder than usual because of the full house in town for the steeler-lions game but we were awoken several times at night with what sounded like shady business a few times. but just for the record, the loudest, longest and most annoying disturbance was an obscene, intoxicated canadian who was locked out of his room at 4am for an hour or so.... the staff made sure to apologize for this when we checked out in the morning.
The clerk on duty was exceptionally helpful
It was inexpensive and clean with friendly staff in a convenient downtown location that was easy to access downtown Detroit. This was a location that is not overly friendly late at night and a family with young children would need to be concerned if outside in the evenings.
Within reasonable walking distance of Ford Field and people mover
