HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

We came to Detroit for the weekend for a red wings game. The Doubletree was in a fantastic location to the Joe Louis area and all other sites we wanted to visit downtown. We had a 2 room suite that had a view of the Detroit river and Windsor, Canada. All amenities in the hotel were superior. Note: the hotel...

First time staying in downtown Detroit. The Doubletree was much nicer than expected. The room was huge, nicely decorated and very comfortable. $30 to park is a bit pricey but otherwise this is a great place. It's a 5 minute walk to MGM Casino. I will definitely stay here again when returning to Detroit.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel so we could attend a Detroit Redwings game. The arena was very close and the services at the hotel were everything we needed! The rooms are huge and all was up to par. Great stay.

For the last game at the Joe, this location can't be beat! The proximity to the arena, as well as the people mover and the tunnel to Windsor makes this a prime spot. The staff were very friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. Definitely would come back.

We chose to stay downtown the night we were going to the Wings game. We were able to check in early which was certainly appreciated. Of course we were given those amazing warm chocolate chip cookies at check in and they were very kind about giving us extras the next morning! The hotel is extremely convenient to bars, the riverwalk...
