Guest rooms feature a separate sleeping and living room area, dark wood tones, granite counters and warmly painted walls. The bathrooms can be a tight squeeze, but they provide everything you need. Be sure to stop by the conference facilities to see the historic ceilings and moldings, which have been restored. The lobby is a great place to congregate, sip on a coffee from the on-site market or get your shoes shined. Smoke free premises. 203 units. 22 stories, interior corridors.

Traveling as Couple

Pros: The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. The location is great; a short walk to the people mover. The restaurants also have great tasting food and drinks.
Cons: The cost of valet parking, and the valet parking staff were not attentive. a couple times, we drove up and walked inside, rather than the valet staff meeting us at the car. For the price, that's unacceptable.

Pros: The spaciousness of the suite, proximity to People Mover, general cleanliness of the hotel, friendliness of the hotel staff, location within the former historic Fort Shelby Hotel.
Cons: Proximity to retail, restaurants, and entertainment--because the only surrounding development was weekday 9-5 business, there was no street-life on the weekend. However, that could change incrementally over time as parking lots transition to development.

Pros: The front door staff was fantastic, and the room was clean and comfortable. The shower was AWESOME--I miss it even now.
Cons: I wish that elevators were better--it passed my floor twice.
