The beds are comfortable. The rooms are clean and like new. They have security for the elevators after a certain time. The recreational room is phenomenal with a full weight and cardio area, lots of rooftop balconies. Staff is very nice and attentive. I would come here again even though they nickel and dime you for everything. Being a hotel attached to the people mover is great for getting around downtown too. Saved a ton of money on cab fees!
Everything has an additional charge, no continental breakfast, which is fine but they also charge 14.95 for not a very great buffet. Hotel service is great They charge for valet and do not explain at check in they are putting a 100 dollar hold on your card, they say it falls off after making sure there are no incidentals or any additional charges. They failed to mention you're paying for valet which most hotels I have been to don't charge. I feel as if I could've stayed at greektown or antheum, as usual not have so many extras to pay for.
I didn't get an opportunity to experience anything good.
Despite having two prepaid rooms, my reservation was not held, and we were sent to a local bed and breakfast, that was not in close proximity to my business, nor was it the same quality as the courtyard.
