Centrally located but comes with plenty of street noise. Twenty minutes of an engine being revved at 2 in the morning is never good! Hotel claims to be full of suites and I have no reason to doubt that. My room was large, on a split level. Comfy enough but perhaps needs a little freshening up. Looked forward to my...

I recently stayed here. The location is great and central to anything you want to do downtown. The rooms are spacious and comfortable for the most part but need a refresh and coat of paint. Carpet could be replaced too. Could be a 4-5 star hotel but needs attention. Staff was friendly and overall a good stay for being there...

Stayed here on recommendation of friends for an event we were going to at the FOX. For downtown Detroit in Greektown it was ok. It seemed to be a noisy hotel, could hear our neighbors easily. Prices were ok and breakfast wasn't included. Could find better places to stay for same price.

My wife and I stayed at the Atheneum for our third anniversary and was pleasantly surprised with how beautiful this hotel is. The staff is an amazing group of people who are very helpful, polite, and attentive to their guests. We will definitely chose this place again and look forward to our next stay.

The Atheneum is in a great location close to bars, restaurants and the People Mover. There is a complementary shuttle that takes you within a 5 mile radius of the hotel as well. Staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. There isn't a spa at this hotel which is a downside but for the value it's hard to beat

Always loved this place, stayed many times. Unfortunately this most likely will be the last. Hotel is nice enough, great location and love the deep tubs which was one of the reasons for this stay but to our dismay the water pressure was pitiful, no lie it would have taken 2 hours to fill the tub up. After a call...

A group of 10 of us stayed at the Atheneum November 24th. We had Curtis shuttle us to and from our tailgate location. He was super friendly, hilarious and accommodating to putting up with a group of 10 of us. We had a smooth check in and our bags were stored for us until check in was available. The hotel...

Stayed at the hotel in August 2016. Hotel is older but clean and central to Casino & Greek Town. Has a shuttle service for places within 5 mile radius of hotel which was very handy. No free parking. It is half price if you stay at hotel. Close to Greek Town restaurants and Fish Bones is excellent. Casino is across...

I stayed there this week for one night and must say I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel and its staff. Firstly, the location is perfect and the rooms, I thought, were very clean and spacious. Secondly, and most importantly, the staff is wonderful. From the reception, to the doorman to the valet guys. I had lost my phone that...
