    I did not understand why you can only check in at 4pm but have to be gone by 11am next day.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    I liked the location, in downtown Detroit. There are dining options within walking distance. It is an older building, which has been nicely renovated. The unit we stayed in was very clean and in good condition. I liked the kitchen and washer/dryer. The only negative is that there is not much parking, some street parking and paid parking at a nearby hotel. I did not rent a car this trip, so was not a major drawback

  • 4.0.Fair

    The place was quiet and spacious at first glance. The bed wasn’t very comfortable. The shower curtain was stained yellow on the bottom, there were stains on the bed sheets and when I opened the pull out couch mattress, there was a needle cap left inside of it. After I saw that, I left early. Very disappointing.

    Overall a lovely stay.

    Wi-fi was reliable and secure...great for work. A nice Starbucks was across the street. The building was really quiet and clean. I had been travelling for several days before I got to Detroit, so the in-unit washer/dryer was especially nice to have. The furnishings were very stylish and the bed was amazing. I didn't care for the Chromecast TV (it was a bit of a pain). Basic antenna TV should be available for local news and sports. I'm happy an HDMI cable was available in the unit, so I could relax with a movie that wasn't on my phone. Keypad entry may be convenient, but in a pandemic, I didn't want to touch the building access pad that everyone else also uses. I'd stay again, but come more prepared.

  • 6.0.Good

    Good but could be better

    The Sonder at Gabriel Richard was in a good location with a very spacious, comfortable interior and great amenities. The building had a very creaky elevator and the carpet on our floor was in poor condition with stains and food that had been spilled on the ground left. Access to the room and building were very easy. Issues we experienced: coffee filter was not thrown away since the last guests, the remote that controlled the A/C in one of the bedrooms was dead and I couldn't get it to work even after changing the batteries so the room got very warm as it did not have windows, and lastly, before leaving I checked beneath the bed to make sure I didn't leave anything behind and I found several items left by other guests that had not been removed. Overall, it was a nice space that just could have been cleaned more efficiently.

    Stayed in one of the many beautiful updated studio’s. Security greeted me at the door upon arrival which made for a great surprise of relief and comfortability. I would recommend Sonder to fellow travelers.
