Location location location right in the middle of Greektown. Connected to the casino and Fishbones. 5 to 10 minute walk to Ford Field or Comerica park. Very spacious rooms suites including the bathroom. Friendly staff and did not have to wait long for valet. Again cannot beat the location.

Just finished a conference at this hotel. They have apparently just finished a renovation which as best I can tell was paint and new carpet. The rooms are big and clean however there are three steps down from the main sitting area and bathroom to the sleeping room. The AC was marginal, not nearly adequate for the large room. I...

I read several complaints on this hotel but we had great check in service, fast valet parking and pick up and a very nice room. In a King Suite with step down into bedroom area, a sitting area and a spacious bathroom. The...

I was a victim of a crime while staying at the Atheneum Hotel. I awoke in my room to discover my handbag and jewelry and other personal items were stolen from my room while I was in the room sleeping. I discovered my room was lacking a sliding chain or extra safety locks, which was a feature available in the...

I liked this hotel. It's in a really good location close to downtown and a right in the middle of Greektown. The rooms are really large and the staff are friendly. The room was very clean but a little dated, especially the bathroom which could do with modernisation.

It was just ok! Room was big! But I didn't think it was worth the money. Beds weren't that comfortable & terrible pillows. Also the ac didn't seem to work right! Room was too hot! Couldn't get the temperature to adjust to a lower setting! We're only in room a short time so I couldn't call maintenance! Especially when it...

My wife and I had the unfortunate experience of staying at this "hotel" for a friends daughters wedding. From the moment we pulled our car up to the valet, until leaving the next day, we were astonished at the level of incompetency that the staff exhibited and the run down condition that this property is in. In short, we were...

We traveled to this dated but generally clean hotel for a business/long weekend trip. Unfortunately, in the immediate area, there is not much to do with kids in tow. Food and Casinos are the only forms of entertainment - especially when it is cold/rainy outside. The hotel does have a shuttle and we used it to go to a Redwings...
