While on a visit to Detroit we needed some long term lodging and could not have asked for better accommodations. From valet to housekeeping we were treated like kings. Very friendly with fresh breakfast buffet and hot coffee. Great staff and good clean rooms... beds and pillows were super comfy!

The hotels location is close to the people mover that takes you ever there you want to go downtown. The hotel is very clean and the staff is exceptional. Will definately stay there again. The bar on the main floor is a good place to eat. Nice menu.

Great location, decent accommodation, reasonably priced BUT half the hotel seems to have been booked out to a group of drunk, potsmoking screaming 20 somethings, and they have all just returned from the bar at 2:30 for round two in the hallways. I shouldn't be surprised, they were already drunk and high in the lobby and corridors in animal costumes...

Stayed three nights at the Holiday Inn Express. The valet was great, no coplaints there; but that's it. We had no hot water all weekend. They were going to replace the boiler, and apparently didn't do it. $160 a night room, and an additional $30 to park; I don't think hot water is too much to ask for. The second...
