This hotel has an amazing vibe that stems from the well maintained character carried over from it's past life as a fire station. The main lobby opens into a large lounge, bar and dining space. Old fire poles can still be seen on the far side. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with a keen attention to detail and convenience. We ate at the hotel restaurant for breakfast and I enjoyed a beautiful omelet and very fresh fruit. Great latte as well. Convenient location to Greektown (a 10 minute walk).

Brilliant new boutique hotel (refurbished Firehouse) in downtown Detroit. Directly across the street from Cobo Hall for those attending conventions. The bar/restaurant area was bustling, yet good acoustics making table conversation easy.

This is my third visit to the Detroit Foundation Hotel. I was a regular at the wonderfully restored homes at the Inn on Ferry Street up Woodward a ways. I feel a little guilty every time I am in the city and stay here at the Foundation Hotel and not there at the Inn but I love the vibe, the Detroit Experience, the walkability to the river and Cobo, and downtown restaurants and nearby places. This is a great hotel, a bit austere and an urban chic vibe with its exposed brick and concrete floors, but the place is just downright cool. Good ambitious restaurant, good buzz in bar and restaurant. Do not come here expecting just another downtown hotel. Go across the street to the Crowne Plaza for that. If you want a wonderful Detroit experience and a very cool hotel. Come here. It is my new go to place in the D.

Hotel is a great location for business and pleasure. feels more like a booming local restaurant than a hotel and beautiful design. clean, friendly and everything you need. best food in the midwest, maybe the country.

My husband and I stayed at the hotel for a wedding. The room was very nice along with the most comfortable beds! The staff was extremely kind. It was expensive but worth the price. The atmosphere was beautiful.
