Staff. In-room service order wasn't quite accurate when delivered.
The double room suites are incredible! They're huge and feel very modern. This place and the staff are all very nice. $15 to park next door at a lot that advertises $10 rates.
We were in town for a national conference just a few blocks away at the Cobo Center. Upon check-in the staff was super friendly and helpful. They even gave us a warm cookie. We were close to the stadiums, food places and downtown. The room was massive! The beds were in a seperate closed off area, so people could congregate in the sitting area if needed. Definitely worth the month compared to other hotels around the area. Having to pay 30 dollars a night to park.
Comfortable rooms and friendly staff. Shower tile could've used a bit more attention from housekeeping.
We were blown away by the customer service and room for the price. This is worlds beyond Greektown Casino Hotel. We will stay here again. The valet was a little expensive at $27/day.
The bathroom setup.
I thought the staff were very kind and helpful. The food in the restaurant (we ate an early breakfast) was very delicious and good value for the money. Everything was clean as far as I could tell. The room! I had a horrible night sleep. The bed was not comfortable, which is my opinion. The thermostat is right next to the heater and I think because of this, the room was constantly hot AND cold. The room was incredibly dry and consequently made me very dry-mouthed when I needed to be the opposite.
What did I like? My car did not end up on blocks, and it was a $6 Uber ride to downtown. The staff was pleasant. What did I not like? For >$200/night the following were unacceptable to me...The broken glass in the window, blood on the lampshade, only 2 two towels for a noted party of 4, A/C that didn't work, having to walk downstairs to get the fan we request be brought up to us because it never came, and the "mysterious" charge on our credit card at 5am that took two people to explain and blame the person who checked us in. That's what I did not like.
The bed was comfortable. The Air conditioner didn't cool enough.
The staff was friendly and helpful. The heat in the room wouldn't regulate. woke up at three am in a sweat and checked the room thermostat. It registered 90. Tried to turn heat down but it continued to blast out of the register. Ended up turning if off and opening the window. The walls between the rooms are very thin. We heard every conversation in the room adjacent to ours. Eavesdropping was fun until that family decided to wrestle and crank up their music. After a half hour of that I finally had to do that awkward thing where you knock on your neighbors door and beg a quieter life out of them
Nice Rooms, Friendly Staff. Parking NOT included. Cost isnt cheap.
Bed was comfortable, Staff helpful and friendly, clean hotel nicely located a walk away from Comerica Park, Ford Field and other downtown areas. Breakfast left much to be desired, toaster was broken, and had been for 2 days. Some of the food was decent, some was awful (don't have the cold, greasy, limp hash browns...)
I was thrilled with the room I didn't like the fact that valet gave me such a hard time to park my car I had to show him my email that my room was paid for
We stay at the Hilton Garden Inn as much as possible when visiting downtown Detroit. It is a wonderful, safe, clean, great location hotel. nothing
The location was great. The fact that there is a fridge and a microwave in your room made it a bit easier. There is a little fireplace in the lobby, which was nice. All in all, it was a very good stay
Staff was very helpful, good recommendations. Room was very clean and cosy, we appreciated having the corner room with 2 windows.
The front desk staff were nothing but friendly and professional. They went out of their way to help with anything that they could. The bar tender at The Grille could have been more pleasant and friendly. I was with a group of three and she seemed more concerned with some of the "regulars" and we were pretty much ignored.
This spot becomes our first-choice hotel for downtown Detroit. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Internet is fast and reliable. Breakfast is fine, especially the made-to-order omelets with a wide variety of ingredients available. Parking is in an open lot adjacent to entrance, but there seems to be good security.
visiting Detroit downtown. But the downtown was empty of people. The staff at the hotel did not have any idea to go. The area around the hotel was only a lof of asfalt
The rooms were nice and beds were comfortable. The bar and breakfast areas were convenient and suprisingly good. Breakfast was great... hands down one of the best by hotel standards. N/a
Staff & location Beds
I had a chance to enjoy the Casino and Hotel over the Christmas Holiday!! it was warm and enchanting!! Everyone was kind and professional, I can't wait to return. We Loved it ! We loved everything, especially the free upgrade on our room, and room service was awesome!!
Room at night had big spotlights we weren't told about upon check out. Had to close drapes and it was still lighting up the room. Just terrible
The view we got was amazing. The staff was excellent and so accommodating. I mentioned it was my birthday and they were so nice to be sure that we had an amazing view. Heard loud music all night. Not sure if it was from bars outside or from neighbors? Couldn't tell.
It was a well deserved and most awesome romantic get away!! Love it all. Only thing bad, which isnt really that bad, but found clothing from prior guests behind the chair.
Location Got rid of lobby bar
The location was great. Our view was overtaken by the top of the parking garage. The room was dirty. Everywhere we looked, there was dirt, smudges and grease marks on the walls, headboard, bathroom walls, mirrors, thermostat cover, you name it. There was even what looked like a bit of dried food on the bathroom wall. Everything was dusty as well. The decor throughout felt outdated. We were in one of the orange rooms and it did not feel very calming. Perhaps some of the other rooms have been updated? Room layout made it difficult to get comfortable--one big chair with no footstool, and only a small wall-mounted desk with one chair. How do two people eat a meal like that? Could not get the thermostat to adjust and the room was overly warm. Lobby staff was pleasant but not overly friendly. Room service was poorly executed--quality of food was sub-par, they messed up one of our orders and only brought one set of silverware.
Overall a good location, with very nice and friendly staff. the lamps in my room 2609 were covered in dust, as well as the wall behind the lamp between the beds--- [have pictures] Also, the coffee used for the keurig machine is absolutely horrible. We had to call down to get extra tea instead. The eggs, bacon, and the French Toast were cold in the buffet, many people complained. Response from the gentleman walking around in behind was "yep" They did bring out new trays of hot food, however the problem from what we could see, was that the water underneath was not hot and steaming when they lifted the other trays out. There was a full container of bacon which they just took out back. They were going to reheat and bring out later. Not a good thing to do.
Overall stay. Great staff, very luxurious, great layout of the hotel and rooms Needs a spa/fitness center
Very accommodating, had lots of fun. Love the morning buffet, would like to see that as an available upgrade Room needs a fridge and microwave
The room was fairly clean with the exception of someones fake eyelashes on the floor which was pretty gross. The fact that my sister and I had a marathon early in the morning. The loud neighbors were rude and inconsiderate. I called security on them once, however they kept being loud. My sister and I got at most, an hour of sleep.
1. Location 2. Free parking 1. Side view of the Detroit river from my room (still okay though)
The smoke - the casinos are FULL of smoke. They need better smoke eliminators - the smell makes you sick.
la situation proche de down town et l'ambiance des lieux le personnel notemment au petit déjeuner où il a fallu réclamer plusieurs fois pour qu'ils remplissent les panières vides...et lorsque l'on est arrivés sur le parking, nous avons cru nous être trompés d'endroit ..il y avait des gens bizarres sur le parking et qui ne correspondait pas au type d'hôtel et au prix...
Calme, pratique pour aller en ville, service de navette, un petit déjeuner délicieux.
L'ambiance de cet endroit nous fais plonger dans les années 1900. La luminosité est feutrée avec des lampes en pate de verre en guise d'eclairage indirect. Les 5 maisons alignées dans un rue chic et verdoyante, des arbres aux couleurs de l'automne dans lequel s'ébattent des ecureuils. le quartier est très calme la nuit. Le matin, votre petit dejeuner vous attend dans la salle à manger et vous pouvez prendre tranquillement votre café et lire votre journal au coin de la cheminée. le taxi de l'hôtel est à votre disposition aussi souvent que nécessaire.Steeves le majordome stylé se fera un plaisir de vous faire decouvrir Detroit, les rives du Canada, la rue des restaurants. Il vous emmenera dejeuner ou diner et viendra vous rechercher à l'heure L'hôtel n'est pas encore très connu des taxis " metro cab" qui attendent à l'aéroport, il faudrait y deposer de la publicité ou des cartes de visite aux chauffeurs. Il est vrai que le 3ème étage sans ascenseur est un peu pénible pour les bagages, mais je suis certaine qu'il m'aurait suffit de demander de l'aide à la réception pour que le personnel intervienne immediatement
L'amabilité et le service offert pour un prix dérisoire comparativement aux autres hôtels américains.
Views from rooms are amazing. Conveniently located. Volt, the hotel restaurant, staff needs to be retrained. Service was terrible. Waitress only came once to table. A different waitress had to get our bill after we asked and she overcharged us. This really put a damper on the trip for us
The location of the Marriott in the Renaissance Center is great for seeing Downtown Detroit. It's near the river, which provides some awesome and beautiful views. I liked the tall ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows as well. I came with friends for Movement and the hotel was packed to the gills. There was also a volleyball tournament going on the same week, so the hotel was out of extra beds. Our room didn't even have a fridge, which was absolutely ludicrous. We had to buy a temporary cooler for our food and drink. Other than that, it was a pretty nice stay despite the hotel being low on supplies. But they should be prepared for such rushes if they know ahead of time how busy it will be.
The bed was comfortable but the bathroom was like that of a $100 per night hotel. Valet service was very slow. Room service was slow. Food delivered to the hotel had to be picked up in the lobby. This is a nice hotel, but for the price paid I expected it to be much nicer. It certainly was not the getaway that we were expecting.
Location was great. Near several large venues. Hotel ran out of pillows, roll-away beds and linens! (oversold!) Asked for sheets three times!! Spent an hour in line to check in & elevators were a nightmare. Not good for late night food options other than pizza delivery. A hotel this large should be equipped to handle its guests! Very disappointed!
Location from Ford Field was decent Dirty room, no kid friendly restaurant, short on beds (wrong room) oversold, check in for two hours (long lines) slow valet, no room service available, asked 6 times until roll away beds were delivered since we only had 1 bed to 4 people.
Nice View Easy Parking No Wifi No Breakfast Slow Check-in but it was a very busy weekend. Loud outside room
Pillows were to small and the getting accesses to the elevator
Couldn't get checked in to the hotel until over five hours after their check in time.
Waited over 2 hours in a line to check in. I want to be compensated!
great hotel, great location very nice no problem at all
With the concert and tigers game the hotel was booked solid. The staff was amazing! Great stay! They all did great job of managing so many guests in house. Everything and Every staff member was great!
I love the lounge area. It's beautiful and we sat for hours and talked. Even though I paid online for the room prior to staying at the hotel. Marriott held from my acct an additional full room rate charge for 5 days even though I had a zero balance.
Breakfast was good A/c didn't work well and front desk personal where lacking customer service skills
Valet, close to Joe Lewis, great restaurant attached to hotel. They even had a shuttle to take us to the hockey game. I would definitely stay here again.
Breakfast. Staff. Location. Secure parking in close proximity for 20 bucks a night. Air con did not work good enough.
Room was on back side of noisy elevator. Heard it all night long. Rooms were not ready at 6:00 at night. Checked in at 7:30pm. They did however give us a free night stay.
Overall, the hotel provided a good stay for the evening. My wife and I were in town for a show at joe Lewis and we could pick up the people mover in a few blocks. They also included a free breakfast which was okay. Beware, parking was $27- which included in the price online.
Would Recommend. Good location. Free shuttle within a 3 mile radius very convenient and a great bargain. Good breakfast included also.
The rooms were nice..the casino, easy check in and out Not much I didn't like
The room was a amazing. The bathroom was beautiful. Bed was comfortable. Overall it was a Pleasent stay. You could hear the people coming and going through out the night. Slamming the doors. And there were little black flies, almost like fruit flies, flying around in the bathroom and bedroom.
The room was beautiful. We enjoyed the free appetizers in the evening and the breakfast in the morning. I wish there would have been a small refrigerator for our own drinks and leftover food we had from dinner. Food had to sit out all night and spoiled.
Free parking, closeness to casino, beautiful view of downtown Detroit. Room wasn't fully cleaned when arrived. Bed wasn't completely made, ice bucket had leftover ice/water in it, glasses were dirty, bath tub was dirty.
comfortable bed, clean, friendly staff noisy, horrible view from room directly looking at parking ramp
Staff is friendly and accommodating nothing
Good location with People Mover station on site and a lil bodega in same building open til 2am. Front desk staff was nice. Our AC didn't work and others worked poorly. I had to go buy fans to sleep. I was told a couple times an engineer would come up. They never did or if they did didn't leave a note. At 730 am our room was 81 degrees, which was warmer than outside. I ordered a sandwich from room service and they refused to give me a side of the mayo they use on their BLT for my fries even though I was happy to pay for it. Then they forgot the permissible ranch lol. Such a joke. Thumbs down.
The beds are comfortable. The rooms are clean and like new. They have security for the elevators after a certain time. The recreational room is phenomenal with a full weight and cardio area, lots of rooftop balconies. Staff is very nice and attentive. I would come here again even though they nickel and dime you for everything. Being a hotel attached to the people mover is great for getting around downtown too. Saved a ton of money on cab fees! Everything has an additional charge, no continental breakfast, which is fine but they also charge 14.95 for not a very great buffet. Hotel service is great They charge for valet and do not explain at check in they are putting a 100 dollar hold on your card, they say it falls off after making sure there are no incidentals or any additional charges. They failed to mention you're paying for valet which most hotels I have been to don't charge. I feel as if I could've stayed at greektown or antheum, as usual not have so many extras to pay for.
Staff was friendly, everything seemed clean. Comfortable beds, window opened slightly for some fresh air. Water pressure was excellent. Valet was blocking the entire entrance with cars upon arrival so we had to circle the block searching for a parking garage that wasn't just monthly. Saw a bed bug, hoping nothing else comes of that.
Friendly staff, clean and great location..like the people mk over access and the warm tunnel to the ren cen in the freezing cold Parking price a little pricey
I didn't get an opportunity to experience anything good. Despite having two prepaid rooms, my reservation was not held, and we were sent to a local bed and breakfast, that was not in close proximity to my business, nor was it the same quality as the courtyard.
The AC wasn't working throughtout the day, so it did get a bit hot. However, everything else was grand.
clean room and nice view took 2 hours to ck in !! cant get must worse then that!!
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.
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.
Location, friendly staff, beautiful building Limited kitchen hours, view from particular room we were given
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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
