Excellent Option in Detroit
Very nice hotel. Very good service. Restaurant Round Bar better than decent. My only issue was the location. While it’s pretty convenient—only a couple of blocks from a Detroit People Mover stop, at night it was dark and dead. I was unwilling to walk alone at night (I don’t anywhere—these blocks did not seem any less safe than similar blocks in another city) the few blocks i would have to in order to be in a more bustling location. Luckily, the Round Bar was good.

Good Stay
It was good the hotel was close to the con and very nice. Really the only problem I had is when I called they implied parking was free and it most certainly was not free.

Wedding bliss
We came to Detroit for our daughter's wedding, and needed to be downtown near the venue and reception. The free shuttle was fantastic, eliminating our need for a car. While there are no restaurants 'next door', the hotel room suite set up allowed us to 'stage' our daughter and brides maids into there dresses in comfort. We will definitely stay here again when in Detroit.
