  • 8.0.Very Good

    Very nice hotel and ambiance. I was a lityle surprised at the fee for valet parking as was told it was 15 not 35 a night as that was a shock. The hotel is beautiful and the bar was great. The restaurant i was disappointed but overall stay and niceness of personnel was great.

    This hotel was absolutely perfect! The cleanliness and attention to detail are spot on. The staff at the the hotel and attached restaurant went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and exciting. We truly enjoyed our dinner and drinks as well. We will definitely stay here again if we have the opportunity.

    Great couples spot

    The hotel was a great place to stay especially for a night out! Joe at the front desk was wonderful and very helpful. The restaurant attached to the hotel had a great steak and interesting cocktails.

    A great historical gem

    We really enjoyed our 4 night romantic stay. The restaurant was great as was room service. The corner room was spacious and light filled with plenty of storage. The bed was comfy and wifi was included. It would have been nice to have coffee in the room as they do not serve in the lobby until 7am. The shower was large but would have enjoyed more water pressure. Location is a short walk to shopping, restaurants and bars. Service was attentive. Would definitely stay again.

    Great stay

    Really cool building with a decent sized room. Bed was comfortable and the location was close to everything we needed. Good food close by, shops and walking distance to the concert we went to.

    12/21 Detroit Stay

    The hotel was great. Room was very spacious & comfortable. The service in the restaurant needs to be improved. We had the same brunch order and the only difference was how our eggs were prepared but our sides were prepared completely different. My husband was not happy with his bland & boring potatoes while mine were prepared with Parmesan cheese & herbs. My daughter order an order of chocolate chip cookies because they said those were the only kinds they had. They brought out some spiced raisins & apples cookies instead! The restaurant was about 1/3 full but it took well over 30 minutes for our food! Hotel staff were great but the restaurant staff needs to pick up the pace.

    Close to perfect

    My wife and I spent one night at the Detroit Foundation Hotel. Overall, we had a great experience. The hotel is beautiful, from the exterior to the rooms to the bar/restaurant. Our room was relatively small, but it was very tasteful and modern. There were two areas that I felt the hotel could improve upon. First of all, the valet service was incredibly overwhelmed when we arrived, and there was no self-park option. We ended up parking in a flat lot right next door that was unaffiliated with the hotel. Secondly, and this is a small but inconvenient thing, there were no ice machines or ice buckets. We had to go down to the restaurant to get some ice for our hotel room. In the end, we both had a great experience and would come back….but this time with a cooler of ice.

    Don't stay on 5th floor

    The Foundation Hotel is beautifully renovated. We checked in for my wife's birthday.The staff greated us and mentioned there would be music on our floor and to let us know if it got to loud. This seemed odd but before we could ask anything more the man at front desk was helping someone else. How bad could it be? At $375 a night the rooms must be well sound proofed, right. Wrong, our room was literally on the far wall of an event space which had a holiday party going on. We called the front desk and asked what time the party went to their response was 11 but we told you there would be music. We decided to walk downtown and see since the party wasn't crazy. When we returned the d.j. was there and they were vibrating our room. People were shouting outside our door and we called again. They offered another room...why was this room booked in the first place and why at full price. We decided to checkout and drive home. There was no aplogy.

    Our stay was amazing from the moment we drove up until the moment we left. The valet service greets you at the street and the front desk agents was at the entry to check you in.
