The Atheneum
Ranked #16 of 33 Hotels in Detroit
Reviewed 12 November 2017

We used the Atheneum as home base for a boys trip to Motown. The rooms were good size and comfortable so that worked well. Location was within easy walking distance to restaurants and bars, the casino, and Ford Field so that all worked out well. The staff was friendly and helpful. My one caveat is that our rooms were a bit tired and needed a refresh but it looked like they were doing that on other floors so maybe not an issue for long.

Well the rooms were big and comfy. Some parts out dated like the flooring and not having a fan in the bathroom which is super weird. Air conditioning worked in the room which was great cause it got very hot for some reason at night. This is october. Super weird. Anyways would i pay the price again?? For the convenience yes but only for that reason.

This is a beautiful hotel. Easy to find, & valet parking upon arrival. Very friendly staff, from arrival to checkout. The rooms are spacious, with separated sleeping and living areas. Big bathrooms, and a lot of space. Clean rooms, and quick room service as well. We were close to our events for the weekend, and had a free hotel shuttle to and from our local concert.

The hotel is downtown and close to many things- food, events, etc.... My room was nice and clean, it had a large deep bathtub that was great! However, I was frustrated that though the room was prepaid, I still had to give a credit card that was charged $50! Then when I checked out was told it would take 5 days to refund the money on my credit card.

This is a very old hotel that needs some serious updating. Even the phone looks like it's from 1970. The decor is awful and outdated. The door to our room did not seem very secure and it made for an uncomfortable sleep. The bathtub/shower was very weird - it was so high off of the floor that it was hard to get into it. A handicapped person would not be able to use it since I am able-bodied and could barely get into it myself. The location is good though, so I would stay again just for that. But they need to put some money into this place as it is in a desperate need for an update.
