This was our first visit to Detroit. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The hotel was convenient to local transportation - People Mover and the new Qline. There were not a lot of dining options nearby.

Just returned from a 2 day stay at the DoubleTree - Fort Shelby; what a great hotel. It is a beautiful old historic building. Check in was quick and efficient and staff was very friendly. In fact all staff members we encountered during our stay were awesome, including the bar/restaurant staff and valet folks. With my gold Hilton status we...

My wife and I stayed here 3 nights in a suite and found it to be large, clean and comfortable. The room was a little dated but it was quiet. You can walk easily to the downtown sites from here. The staff were very friendly and greeted you every time you passed them. We had the continental breakfast for $8.00...

When I booked this hotel it was a last minute selection based on location and price. We were pleased from the moment we walked in and was greeted with a warm and friendly smile - although it was 11 pm (late flight). All of the staff from front desk, bar staff, shuttle driver and wait staff were super friendly and...

Would love to stay again for a Tigers game. Have already shared with friends so they choose Double Tree! The location is so close to the ball park, hockey, Greek town and so much more. Oh and the complamentery cookies are the best!!!

Front desk was awesome, let me check in 2 hours early. Our room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. The doormen are nice and the shuttle and it's drivers are so awesome! Pretty much everywhere you want to go, the shuttle will take you (Riverfront, Greektown, local breweries). I felt safe walking places by myself and with female friends.

Very clean, spacious, and comfortable rooms in this elegant and historical hotel downtown. I wish the toilet had been more modern, that the hotel had offered bottles of water upon arrival, and that the valet parking--which costs $30 a day--was run more efficiently.

The location is great - you can walk (3 blocks) to the Cobo Center, People Mover, Greek Town restaurants, etc. The hotel is in historic building, yet modernized inside. One thing I appreciated here is that they had plenty of newspapers (USA Today and Wall Street Journal) available, even for late risers. Many hotels are cutting back on the number...

Excellent check in that was friendly and quick. You always get a cookie at a double tree and this was no exception. We were on a Hilton honours floor with a suite so I have to say the room was was huge with a TV in the lounge and bedroom, free wifi, ironing board etc. Fantastic location for downtown and...
