4/10 Fair

Nice hotel, stupid bathroom door
The hotel was nice and the staff was very friendly. My main problem was with the layout in the hotel. The bathroom door had a barn door style sliding door. Immediately upon entering the room I went to use the bathroom. The door stuck a bit and I pulled the handle with force. My finger got smashed in between the wall and the sliding door. I had a feeling it was broken. It swelled immediately with blood blisters and bruising. We were in town for a baseball game and the injury delayed us getting to the game. I was also in some considerable pain for the next few hours. I got ice from the front desk and the guy was very nice. When I got back to my hometown I went to the urgent care and confirmed the finger was broken. Stupid design for a door and I really didn’t expect an injury like this, especially in a hotel that cost $500 a night.

Nice city location, Clean Hotel, Not A Great View
The hotel was in a great location. We could walk to many restaurants. The building was clean and beautiful, but the view was not great. No cityscapes, just a view into other rooms.

8/10 Very good

Overall good experience
I want to start by saying the staff here were amazing. Very friendly. With that being said I paid a lot of money for a room with a view and "the view" was looking at all the other rooms windows. If you left your curtains open everyone could see you in your room. No outside view at all. 2nd There was no restaurant inside the hotel, I read there was. No gym either that I seen. We were right downtown so you could walk everywhere. Big plus. 2 blocks from Comerica park. Room itself was clean. You got one free bottle of water. Free coffee and tea. Bar was nice. Art gallery also nice. Overall a good experience. I suggest valet parking it is an extra $42 a night but worth it

6/10 Good

Building is beautiful. The staff that was there is great, but there is no bell service and housekeeping isn’t daily. Valet was great service. As for the rooms, A/C didn’t work in two rooms. Several lights flickering. Floor left socks and feet dirty. Bathroom door doesn’t lock or even really stay shut.

Poor Customer Service - Rude staff After a long night out, we returned to the hotel and could not get in our room. There was something wrong with the mechanism that reads the key cards. The front desk lady acted as if we were doing something wrong. After about a half hour, they gave us another room to sleep in and said we had to wait until 7am for maintenence to come fix the door. We had none of our belongings. Slept terrible due more to the way we were treated rather than the new room. Noone seemed to care what happened. The next morning the guy who fixed our door was wonderful and very nice. At that point the 3rd shift desk lady was much nicer and apologized for the night before. The new lady at the front desk in the morning shift was worse than the first one. VERY RUDE! We never recieved a call or anything from management about what happened. We realize that this was out of their control but noone seemed to think this was a big deal. They eneded up paying for half of our room. Should have been the whole thing. What do they lose by comping a room for one night? Well they lost us. We wont be back!
