This doubletree is a great hotel rigjt in downtown Detroit. Easy walking distance. The suites are clean and large. The staff is very friendly and helpful. And the gym is quite well appointed for a hotel.

The only downside is the baked egfs on the breakfast buffet aren't that good.

Stayed at the double tree for 2 weeks for work. The rooms were plenty spacious and nice compared to other Detroit hotels. Even had a pullout couch. Fridge and microwave in room! Having status was a big perk to get breakfast daily. The breakfast staff was extremely nice and friendly. Remembered our names and orders by the 2nd day. All staff members I dealt with were very friendly and helped make my extended stay better. Free shuttle with select radius (dropped off at LCA for wings game). Also the gym is well equipped too!

We visited Detroit last week for a concert. The Doubletree Suites Fort Shelby had everything we wanted in a hotel and more. The location is ideal for anything happening in downtown Detroit. The entrances to sporting facilities are only a couple of blocks away. There are also many great attractions and restaurants close by within walking distance.

Our room was beautifully decorated and had a great view of the bridge and Canadian/US skyline. The room was large, and since the sleeping area of the suits was separated from the hallway by a living room and bathroom, we didn't hear any hallway traffic. The beds are also extremely comfortable which is so nice when you are away from home.

The hotel's valet parking is well worth the cost. You can certainly find less-expensive parking, but the friendly service from the attendants is terrific. The front desk staff are just as kind. They helped with recommendations for dinner plans and told us about other options in the area they enjoy. The hotel also offers the benefit of a local shuttle. We made full use of it on our way to the concert. Definitely a great option for families and groups staying at the hotel.

We were able to enjoy breakfast at the hotel’s restaurant and it was delicious! So many options at the buffet that consider a variety of dietary needs. We enjoyed eggs, fruit salad, coffee, juice, pastries, bacon, and waffles! Delicious.

If you are looking for a great place to stay and in a great location then do not overlook the Doubletree Suites Fort Shelby. We will definitely return more than once!

We booked this hotel as all of the accommodations are suites, and we wanted enough space for 3 adults and 1 child. We also noticed that compared to some other hotels in downtown Detroit, this was one of the more affordable options (i.e. Westin, Crowne Plaza, the Courtyard, the Marriott, were all priced higher than the Doubletree). No regrets about this choice.

Upon arrival at the front of the hotel, we handed our keys over to the valet staff who assisted us with unpacking our luggage onto a dolly (valet staff also helped us load the car when we checked out). Parking is $32 per day, when you need the car you send a text to the valet staff and by the time you get downstairs from your room, the car is being pulled up to the curb, very quick valet service. Check in was also quick and easy. Suite was spacious with a living room that had a sofabed, desk, and flat screen tv. Bedroom had 2 queen beds and also had a flat screen today. Vanity area and bathroom are in between living room and bedroom. The room also has a mini fridge but no microwave. Room seemed a little worn down but it was comfortable and spacious. Housekeeping wasn't so good - on our first full day, we arrived back at room at 5 pm to find that housekeeping did not service our room that day. We did call the front desk and they sent someone up to make the beds and replenish the towels. Next day they did service the room but didn't empty out the ice bucket.

Hotel is not in the heart of downtown but more on the outer edge of the downtown core. There are no real dining or drinking options in the immediate vicinity of the hotel - your options are to walk 1 1/2 blocks to People Mover which will take you to more active parts of downtown, take Uber, or take a healthy walk of 15-30 minutes. The hotel shuttle is also an option but it can be a long wait. On Saturday night, we went to shuttle area: shuttle was out on a run and there were already 8 people ahead of us waiting for the shuttle to return. we took Uber that night. Sunday wasn't so busy and we were able to board the shuttle which was sitting outside the hotel, the friendly driver drove us to the Motor City casino. Shuttle driver drove back out to the casino after we ate dinner and brought us back to the hotel. The hotel also has bar/restaurant on site. We had dinner there one night, food was good but not great and the menu is limited. The bar was a great place for drinks though. We had a drink or two in the hotel bar each night we were there - bartenders are courteous and mix a good drink, the bar also has a good selection of draft beers. They also serve breakfast in the Motor City grill or you could grab a bagel or pastry for breakfast at the lobby coffee shop.

Hotel does have a fitness room with several treadmills and some dumbbells (up to 50 lbs.). There is no pool.

In spite of the housekeeping lapses and not so central location, we still enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It is especially recommended for anyone who feels they need hotel accommodations that are spacious.
