The Atheneum
Ranked #16 of 34 Hotels in Detroit
Reviewed 12 April 2017

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 game. Not having a pool makes it hard to entertain the kids for extended periods. In general, the room sizes are very good - we were able to comfortably sleep 5 in our room (one on the couch). The service issue came when we had only had 2 sets of towels for 5 people, no hairdryer, and no extra blankets/pillows. We made the request for some of these items in the evening shortly after check-in and the individual on the phone was none-to-thrilled. I decided to request the items that could wait until morning and was met with a much different, more pleasant attitude! Throughout our 5-day stay, the service was inconsistent. The room was dated but clean - except when housekeeping forgot to clean it. We never knew if we would have enough sets of towels (you would think after the first request they would realize there were more than 2 people in the room). The conference facilities were well-kept and the hotel was conveniently located close to casinos and many wonderful eateries in Greektown. If I had a do-over, I would not stay here with kids again. I might stay here if it is just the two of us, and the conference is in the same building.

Room Tip: If you are hoping to sleep at night, request a room on the side away from the nightclubs. The noise...

This hotel is a bit pricey but it is in a great location. The rooms were clean and the staff was incredibly friendly. We rented two rooms to host a bachelorette party and I would definitely stay at this hotel again. There are many different restaurant options nearby and Fishbones located inside the hotel has very good food. The hotel is located near the Greektown Casino as well. Great hotel with great friendly staff.

Had a great stay at this hotel! Close to restaurants, casino, and plenty of bars. The rooms were clean, and the bed was comfy. We stayed on the second floor, and were not bothered by outside noise. The staff was very nice and willing to help. Valet parking was quick with getting your car for you. Can't wait to get back to the D., and would definitely stay at The Atheneum again.

The rooms are nice and spacious. The fitness room is small. The water was not drinkable and they try to charge you $4 for bottled water. There is breakfast in the lobby is not hot and lacks fruit. They only had coffee and cold cereal.
