My stay was great, staff was wonderful

Staff was incredible. Extremely helpful and polite

If I had one complaint it would be that the shower was a little lacking in water pressure and the water itself took a very long time to heat up.

A great place to stay when looking for a quality hotel in Detroit.

Its gorgeous. the amount of marble is absolutely amazing! The property is absolutely beautiful.

I don’t have anything negative to say about the property at all. I enjoyed the interactions with all of the staff except for the young lady I saw around 3:00 the day I checked out. She must’ve been having a bad day but other than that the trip was an A+.

Very good

Detroit is a hidden gem for most people, but not us. My wife and I live about an hour outside Detroit, and we made this a weekend getaway. There is so much to explore and do in Detroit, if you're from outside the area you probably have no idea how awesome and cool it is! The restaurants, entertainment, culture, vibe, and history in this City are incredible. Oh, and our room's view of Comerica Park, Ford Field, the Opera House, etc. was spectacular!

They need to work on the welcome at the entrance. Having a person out on the sidewalk to greet us, get us assistance with luggage, and tell us where to go would have really helped with our first impression. We were a little uncertain about our choice, at least until we walked into the incredible lobby of this historic old building. From then on, everything was perfect!

Family night in Detroit

The location is awesome when doing things downtown. The hotel is always clean and the staff is very friendly. This is one of my favorite places to stay in Detroit when going to events in the downtown area.

Nice hotel, could use some hospitality

I thought the hotel was beautiful and there were nice touches like the coffee and tea bar. The room was well appointed. The windows were nice, but I didn't like the view.

We had an issue where the fire alarm sounded for quite some time while we were trying to rest and we were made to wait outside in freezing weather. Additionally, there were several people nearby with loud, barking dogs. Finally our room view was into other rooms which wasn't the best.

The view as great, the staff was super nice and it was a nice spot downtown.


17 November 2021

Love the location. Have stayed there several times. This was not the best.

Only decaf coffee in the room. Our toilet was running constantly.


30 October 2021

Nearly perfect

This hotel’s location couldn’t be better for literally anything. We were seeing a show at the Fox Theater, which was just a short walk down the block. Our room overlooked Comerica Park (so close we could tell you the score) and Ford Field was directly behind that. The hotel staff was super friendly and very accommodating. The room itself was very modern, and well equipped. Our only qualm was that the lights in the bathroom were real dim for makeup application and the lights elsewhere in the room were also relatively dim. This was great for ambiance and for not being visually assaulted in the morning when you turn on the lights BUT not great for smoky eye.

It's right in the heart of downtown Detroit and the building is beautifully restored with nice common areas in the lobby.


28 June 2021


The attention of the personnel was excellent.

The procedure to order the breakfast require improvement with standard procedures. One of the elevators was out of order.

Very good

The Aloft was a clean place to stay, directly in the heart of Downtown Detroit. We enjoyed the city views, convince, and modern take on a historic building.

There was No free breakfast option. There was No parking except valet which was considerably more expensive than other parking options. The eating available in the hotel was often closed

Outstanding Experience


It was all great!


15 June 2021


It's a great historical hotel, great location, nice bar and open areas to congregate. Nice artwork. My daughter loved the 24-hour snack and ice cream availability..

The room lighting for the bathroom made it difficult to leave just that light on. The refrigerator was small. I did not realize I had to call to have the room cleaned daily. If there was a pool my daughter would have been thrilled!


4 June 2021

Very good

The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was perfect and the building was beautiful.

The only thing I didn't like was that the marble hallways outside the rooms really carried sounds. It got loud anytime anyone came down the hall. It is also a beautiful historic building so it was a trade off.
