Stayed a week here on business, if not feeling as unwell as I did I would have moved. The service is pleasant however insincere. The rooms have paper thin walls and the amorous couple next door must have prayed often as Oh God! Oh God!, was heard through the paper thin walls time and time again. Linnen is not changed... More

I read so many bad and mixed reviews here but I rate the hotel VERY GOOD. First off, it is great to have an enclosed pool in Michigan where it often will snow for months and the weather is very cold. The pool was a haven from the snow and so relaxing. I loved night swimming there. The lobby is... More

I've had the greatest experience staying at The Metropolitan Hotel. The staff is friendly and they've made sure that my children and I feel at home. They are still in the process of getting everything up and running ie. the banquet halls/ ballrooms, the movie theater, bar and other small things. But with their beautiful pool, gameroom for the kids,... More
