Perfect hotel for a game. We were only there for two nights and wish we could have stayed longer. The staff was so great and friendly. Close to some great restaurants. A little noisy at night but it was ok.

I stayed with some friends for a concert downtown - the shuttle service was great and the staff extremely helpful. The rooms were very clean but maybe a bit dated. The rooms were VERY big and if you are headed to town with a group ideal. Our room would have slept 6 easily and was very spacious for just the...

Stayed down here with my health professional discount. got a free room upgrade. great room, great service. THE BAD the mini fridge is sensitive, take note of this if you brought any of your own drinks to cool off in there, as the sensor will add an extra chage to your account upon removal of your own beverages

Absolutely perfect place to stay for a game. Rooms were huge and the staff is outstanding. Great 5 block stroll to a Tiger's or Lion's game. The hotel is right around the corner from a great block of bars and eateries. The hotel has a huge open lobby , great look for an urban hotel

The location is perfect for Greektown, Stadiums or Renaissance Center. The hotel is all suites meaning that it has a sitting room with TV and couch in addition to the bedroom with king bed and TV. Wifi is free with good reception. The strangest part of the room is the huge round support pillar in the middle of the bedroom...

We stayed at this hotel as part of a very large convention and while the staff was very friendly and the rooms are very large, this hotel left much to be desired. First, their wireless internet is very slow and would not stay connected. We had 4 rooms in our group and everyone had the same issue. When this was...

Our primary reason for staying in Detroit was to go to a Tigers game. I wanted a safe hotel within walking distance, and this fit the bill. Traveling as a family of four with two teens, we find that more space equals better vacations, so the huge suite was a welcome sight. The hotel is located in a great location...

The Atheneum Suites is an all-suite hotel, and I recently stayed there after booking a "hot-rate" room on Hotwire for a short, business-related stay in Detroit. Due to early arrival, I was unable to check-in prior to the day's meetings, but the staff was considerate and checked my bags until I could return for check-in. The room was an enormous...

Regardless of where I have business in Detroit, I will always stay in this Greektown gem. In a beautiful older building, the rooms are split-level with giant tubs, windowed brick in the bathrooms and very high ceilings. The beds are also some of the best I've slept on and contrary to other reviews, I have always found it to be...
