I like that it is a historic building, but to be honest i found it to be in disrepair. The hotel seemed junky and needed to be updated.

The hotel stay was good very comfortable and staf

Everything was good but the pricing for cabs is very expensive in the toy would've been nice to have a shuttle or at least the city bus is going there to pick up people and bring them at downtown just like some of the other cities do makes it more convenient not to be looking for cars Or cabspecially when I know that you're going there and you have to go downtown are you so far away they have you very expensive

Double Tree was not willing to refund us after the reservations that were made did not give us what we asked for. They were unwilling to help resolve the matter but the company we booked through we very helpful and gave us a refund. The staff were very unprofessional and did not even try to help because they felt their rooms were satisfactory for a family of 6 with 1 bathroom!

Great stay for a hockey game at Joe Louis!

From checking in to the point we checked out, everyone on staff we encountered were helpful & friendly. The breakfast buffet was very good and the waitstaff was great. We had drinks in the Roundbar and the bartenders were great. Our bed was very comfy and the room was very clean. Did not have the issues of broken things, etc. I saw in another post. The complimentary area shuttle was terrific, including the drivers but the hotel was in such a convenient place for walking or to use the Peoplemover.

We loved everything about our stay. The front desk was very nice, and those yummy warm chocolate chip cookies were amazing! The shuttle service was the greatest, that cold weather was too much to walk to cobo hall and then to Greek town casino! Would very much stay again!
