We had a good 1 night stay this past weekend. Everyone at the front desk was very friendly and accommodating (shout out to Ayesha and Donna) esp with self-park issues. In fact, all hotel staff were cordial and helpful. Our room seemed to be a newer renovated room and was very clean upon arrival. One drawback is it’s not really close to any restaurants, but it is only a short walk to get to several establishments.

I was in town for a business meetings for a week, the hotel as a safety procedures requires you to request any housekeeping service that is understand due to the situation, however I was there for a week, request 2 times clean towels, coffee, water amenities, and I never got it. I have to buy my self a shampoo, soup used the same towels for a week that was very disappointing. Called many times for service and always the answer was " the person is on your way" but never made it.
Pay for parking and was charge double for the full week, then I request the refund and they only refund 2 out of 4 again the service was the worse that I have ever had @ any other hotel

This hotel is located in downtown Detroit and the parking is terrible. During my recent stay I paid $27 for self parking in lot across from the hotel but is was both cramp and no available spots. They offered valet parking but only had one valet to service the entire hotel. The management team refunded all of the parking fees. I also never received room service my first of two nights in the hotel, I called the front desk and asked for towels and face cloths which I received. On a positive note the hotel is located within walking distance if many attractions.

Met some friends from Wisconsin for the Pistons vs. Bucks NBA game. I picked this hotel out for the size of the rooms and the location. Both were key factors in my decision. People mover is next door and you can ride all around the D for .75 cents.

Stay was nice! Beautiful hotel. Our sweet was a bit congested.... ran out of towels requested them and didn’t get them till we went down again the next day. Ran out of toilet paper asked for housekeeping was told it needed to be requested in 24 hours notice we were unaware of that. Otherwise staff was great!

I booked a few rooms for my daughters 21st bday. From the comfort of my own bed I was able to message with the front desk through the Hilton app the morning of and requested an upgrade and they accommodated that. When I checked in I mentioned that to Kimberly at the front desk. Later, she had a bottle of wine and glasses sent up to us to wish my daughter a happy birthday. My daughter felt so special! When we could not get our helium tank opened the maintenance engineer came in and helped us (he did say we probably loosened it up for him). From the time we arrived to the time we left they totally made us feel very welcome and important. ALL of the staff we encountered were extremely pleasant and a joy to talk to. Thank you for your part in making this day memorable for us! I will always use this hotel for my stays in the D.

I paid for a 2 room suite only got a 1 room suite when I asked was told don’t know why it’s labeled like that cus they don’t even have 2 room suites so misleading there. Ask to do a late check out and was told no you have to leave the room now. And it says no one has been in the room for 24hrs but the room was very very dusty and linty made me feel as if it had not been cleaned

Avoid this hotel at all costs. The manager was extremely rude, outright accusing me of lying about the parking charges. Both my dad and I were not informed about any parking fees at check-in, yet the manager had the audacity to deny this. The staff is utterly useless—when we requested toothpaste and napkins on separate occasions, they couldn't be bothered to bring them to our room, instead telling us to come down to the lobby ourselves. This hotel is a nightmare with incompetent management and staff who don't care about their guests. Save yourself the trouble and stay somewhere else. (attached is the picture of the parking spot, with the rate advertised on it, which we were charged twice the amount)

Decent stay at this Doubletree. Hilton Honors status was recognized right away and we immediately received a complimentary upgrade to a suite. Much better recognition and applicable use of benefits available than our prior two Hilton stays on this trip.

Room was large and included a living space and bedroom. Could it have been cleaner? Sure, but it was clean enough for me. We did not have soap in our room, but I had some in my travel bag.

It appears many hotels are struggling to stock rooms appropriately.

No information was ever passed on about the complimentary Hilton Honors breakfast. Wouldn’t have use it anyway.

My overall stay & double tree was nice. I do believe they are under staffed due to the long check-in line & at the restaurant. Considering the state we’re in as far as Covid, it’s understandable. The manager who was helping out at the restaurant was very accommodating. The location was awesome but the parking price in my opinion is too pricey. There was popcorn in my room at checkin but they took care of it asap.
