I hadn't been to Detroit for many years and had heard bad stories, even read bad reviews of hotels, so i selected the one with the best reviews I could find (in my price range).
I was pleasantly surprised, even kind of amazed at what a great experience it was. My husband was playing at the Jazz Festival and the location couldn't have been better. We walked to all the places we needed to go.
The room was nicely decorated, very clean and new. It was the quietest hotel I've been in except for some very exclusive Ritz-Carlton types. The desk help was friendly, respectful and helpful. We got a late check out upon request. Our reservations were handled quickly and expertly with no delays.
There is a fee of $20 to get the car valet parked but were told we could park it ourselves for $10 in the adjacent structure. We opted for the valet and were not charged extra for a full day when we were not in the hotel. During the entire visit, we had access to the car keys whenever we wanted with safe, convenient parking.
I don't know what it's like there at night when there is no jazz festival going on but after a certain time in the evening, they made it necessary to show your key before going up on to your room. I found this rather comforting.
It was a great stay and I highly recommend it!
