Review: June 23, 2005 Clearly an older place in a neighborhood that used to be buzzing but is now nearly abandoned. The staff were nice, and the building was old but in working condition. The fitness center was under renovation and unavailable to use, and the staff suggested the fitness center across the street, but the cost would be $12/visit (!). The morning breakfast was mediocre, but free. There didn't appear to be many other guests at the hotel when we were there, which added to the air of strangeness, since it's a fairly large building. To avoid feeling completely depressed about the current state of the city of Detroit, I'd recommend a hotel closer to downtown and the river. Be sure to check out the beautiful old theater (the Fisher) next door if you do stay at the St. Regis, though.
Review: May 25, 2005 When I arrived in Detroit and was immediately hassled for a $20 taxi drive to the hotel. So my first impression of the city was not too good.
But the hotel, at the reception the girl was very friendly, our room was very nice and clean and quiet located at the back.
The dinner in the restaurant was delightful.
We were staying at the w-end so we were offered also free Internet access, free DVD and a complimentary breakfast.
I just had a great time staying at the St. Regis. Thanks!!
Review: Apr. 20th, 2005 The St Regis is very well located for the AmTrak Station and you can easily hail a cab to get to other locations. It looked like it had once been a very beautiful place, much like the whole of poor battered Detroit but there are some lovely assets to it. Its easy to walk to the motown museum and the Fisher building is truly breathtakingly understated. Its worth noting that on Mondays all the museums in town are closed we spoilt that element of our trip. We did have problems with the booking being lost on arrival which were quickly resolved… unlike the bite rash we got from the bed.
