First, let me preface this review by saying the majority of the problems were with Marriot Corporate. I booked this room in conjuction with a concert I was attending in Detroit. Concert promoter had a group rate in place for concert goers. Called the hotel's phone number and got sent to Marriot corporate reservations. Talked to the person and told...

Last week our company held it's annual conference and I used the Courtyard for our room block. Booking was very easy, streamlined. We had plenty of options to cancel and add on rooms throughout the process without penalty. Everyone enjoyed their stay. I stayed one night myself. Check in/out was simple and quick. The room was clean, and the bed...

Good service and nice clean room. Bring earplugs though, the windows are not sound proof and you can hear the downtown noise. Good valet parking service too. It's close to many things and very convenient

My daughter and I stayed here for a cheer competition which was at the Cobo Center. The Detroit People Mover has a stop here at the hotel which is really convenient. If you are using the People Mover watch for the times of operation, they change daily. Clean hotel with large rooms, there is a restaurant on site which we...

Great location. People mover attached to hotel made it easy to get around. Walkable to Greektown. Great room. Put in request for extra towels and shampoo on Marriott app- but they did not follow through with the request. Daily housekeeping service was bad -Didn't replace items and barely made bed. Everything great about stay - minus housekeeping.

Great view, easy access to the downtown people mover train, clean, spacious room, comfortable bed and sofa. Ask for a view of the river. The service in the lobby was quick and the valet offered quick service. Nothing major wrong with this hotel, good value for the money. The only negatives were a few quality issues with the room.

My room had a king size bed with a couch. I arrived around noon, intending to store my luggage, but they had a room ready for me. Check in was quick and easy. The room was big and had a small fridge in it. The room was very quiet even though I could hear the people next door when I...

Stayed here because of its location. The good points are its location overlooking the river and the standard of the rooms. The downside being poor service and parking management. No effective bell service and very slow reception. Room service too was shabby, returned after first day wanting a rest and room had not been serviced and issues getting that done...

I have stayed at the Courtyard-DD many times as a competitive alternative to the nearby Marriott. The property is new and nice and all rooms give interesting views of the river or surrounding buildings. The exercise area, pool, and especially the locker room with sauna and steam room are particularly nice due to being shared with an adjoining condo building....

Everything was great. Room was excellent, very close proximity to downtown and Cobo Center, easy access to the GM Renaissance Center and people mover. Lots of good restaurants nearby along with things to do. Would highly recommend. Not the cheapest but overall a good value.
