friendly, comfy room. w huge panorama windows looking at detroit and river... convenient parking garage, bag breakfast due to covid, but more than carbs... egg and cheese muffin and good coffee. Our dogs were well behaved and had no trouble w elevators. it was awkward bringing luggage from garage... should have unloaded at back door first.

Hotel's Favourite
The panoramic queen room is just fantastic. The view is amazing especially on the high floors. You can watch the ships come and go, see all the water activity, The night lights across the river are certainly stunning.The curtains they have on the huge window are room darkening, so you can sleep late without the sun waking you.For the value you certainly get your money's worth. Plus breakfast is included.

I spend 2 nights a month at this location. Panoramic view is worth the upgrade. Staff and amenities are great, however disappointed with breakfast. Was previously self serve, easy and efficient. Was changed to a different location, more time consuming, having to wait for someone to hand you the food. Not impressed.

Overall an ok stay. Disappointed with the hidden parking fee upon checkin and cold breakfast sandwiches as hot breakfast. Interior looks dated and windows need to be cleaned. They had a haze and spiders outside the windows that seem like they have never been cleaned, and adds more age to the building. Last time I stayed a couple months ago it was a nicer experience but still needs updating.

I called the hotel to make same day reservations and they never mentioned the pool and fitness room are closed for renovations. Parking costs extra which also wasn't mentioned. So a very disappointing experience, especially for my daughter who was looking forward to swimming.
