This hotel is in the heart of downtown, close to many of Detroit's best attractions. There's also a complimentary shuttle that will take you to within a 3 mile radius. The room was clean and spacious. Great stay!

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We stayed here for a three day weekend with our daughter. We paid to upgrade to the corner suite and it was well worth it. The living room was a huge space and the refrigerator was very useful. The bedroom itself was also gigantic and we had a very comfy king size bed. The location is very convenient to get...

A group that I am associated with recently stayed at the Fort Shelby Doubletree. I must commend the meal service staff, not only were the meals excellently prepared, the servers (especially Laura and Paschel) are a credit to this Hotel. Whatever was requested of any of the staff was courtously and promptly taken care of. You have hired wonderful caring...

This hotel is awesome and the staff is wonderful. It is within walking distance of the people mover to travel around downtown Detroit. Close to Greektown Casinos, 5 Guys, etc. The bar has reasonable prices and great food.

While on my 4th Detroit business trip in 3 years, I was again fortunate enough to stay at the Doubletree. Initially, I selected the hotel because it is located less than 2 blocks from the office I was visiting. However, I've return again and again because I like, the warm greeting at check-in, the clean suites which include refrigerators and...

This hotel is clean, but the service was sub-par. I was rushed through check-in, even though there wasn't anyone checking in behind me. I was not offered a cookie, and I had to ask for my room key and number. I was over charged in the bar and had to ask the waiter to adjust it, which he did happily....

Front desk very helpful and polite Valet not so much. The rooms were clean. Half a block from the People Mover, which was pretty efficient and very reliable. Great location for the Joe or Cobo- actually with the People Mover right there the location was fine. Walked to Corktown at night without any hassles.

Overall I really enjoyed my stay here. I was amazed at how quiet it was in my room. Despite the hotel being pretty busy, I never heard so much as a peep for the several days I stayed there. I felt like I had the whole floor to myself. As a light sleeper, I really appreciated that. The prices for...

We always stay here when in Detroit. Our son attends Wayne State so it is a few times a year. Hotel staff great and the shuttle drivers always point you to good food and go out their way to help you out. Even an extra side trip to the school if needed. We Had chance to stay at another hotel...

I've stayed at this Doubletree 3 times now and can certainly vouch for it being one of the best choices downtown. I am a Hilton Honors Diamond member & each time that was recognized by the friendly front desk staff. The hotel is located on the edge of downtown Detroit (just outside the People Mover route). You can easily walk...
