We stayed Sat/Sun to go to a concert nearby. Staff was friendly and valet was quick on both arrival and departure. Room was clean and spacious with a large bathroom and separate lounge area up the stairs from the bedroom. The hotel has an art deco vibe, that some might find charming, personally find it tacky and dated. That being...

Nice hotel & location! Nice sitting area with TV & couch. Stairs take you down into the bedroom. Ask for a room with a view! Right next to the Greektown casino & fishbone resturantbin good & usually has live entertainment on the weekends.

Easy check in, friendly staff greeting us and helping us with our bags. In a nice area of downtown Detroit. Easy walk to the ballpark. Room was spacious and comfortable! Stayed with my 3 year old daughter and she had a great time!

Really nice, rooms were superb! Very unique decor, edgy vibe, 2 levels, awesome bathroom! Loved the shuttle service, got us everywhere we needed to get, plus your walking distance to Greektown, Ford Field, etc.

Everyone was so nice. The rooms are large and clean, and you can get to FishBones without having to go outside. There is a sitting room so if one person wants to watch tv, the others would not be disturbed.

I booked an overnight stay for a simple business trip. The price threw me for a loop and made me believe my room would be standard. That was far from the truth. The room was gorgeous and beyond comfortable! So modern, spacious, clean etc. Every employee I came in contact with was so pleasant and accommodating. Besides the hotel being...

Good hotel .. clean and big bathrooms! Not sure about the customer service maybe it was a weird day (days). front staff looked depressed or confused or both!! Standing around talking secrets in corners and stare you down suspiciously every time you walk by .. lacking professionalism! Rooms have Noisy neighbors .. weed smell 2 out of 3 nights spent!...

Checked in at around 3:30 pm on 1/22/17. Purchased reservation from the iPrefer website, which included valet parking in the price. Fortunately I had the paper copy of the confirmation that stated this, since they did not have this on record and almost charged me $25.00 for valet. The room was nice, but someone had left trash in the coffee...

I have stayed at The Atheneum many times over the past 13 years or so, love the location, style, and rooms....also, Fishbones(connected to the hotel)restaurant has always been great! Did I mention the location?!!

I booked 3 rooms this trip. I've stayed here on 3 separate occasions as well. My tip: Don't valet park your car. I left my Burberry sunglasses in there and the valet took them. Who the heck steals from their customer first off. Secondly, who steals from someone that tipped them well? I always tip my valets 10 to 20...
