Enjoy the suite life in Detroit’s lively Greektown district

The recently renovated Atheneum Suite Hotel is ideally located in the heart of Detroit's lively Greektown entertainment and dining district. Each well-appointed suite features traditional décor with modern Greek flair, fantastic city views, and oversized marble bathrooms with deep soaking tubs or whirlpools. The all-suite hotel sits adjacent to the Greektown Casino, restaurants and nightclubs, and the property is a short walk -- or hotel shuttle ride -- from a variety of other top Detroit attractions.

Highlights
  • Luxurious, all-suite hotel in the midst of Detroit's popular Greektown entertainment and dining district
  • 174 elegant suites of varying sizes, from a charming studio to a two-bedroom home away from home
  • On-site, award-winning restaurant, Fishbone's Rhythm Café, serves authentic New Orleans cuisine
  • Staffed and equipped for business meetings and events of any size
  • Valet parking ($18-$20 per day)
Rooms

Following a recent multi-million-dollar renovation each of the Atheneum's eight different-size suites guarantees wall-to-wall luxury -- from giant windows overlooking Detroit's awesome skyline to huge marble bathrooms. Every newly furnished suite features a 42-inch LCD television, complimentary Wi-Fi service, and MP3 player connections. Guests can lavish in a host of premium amenities, including a stocked mini bar and 24-hour in-room dining service.

Features

Whether traveling to Detroit for a family vacation, business meeting, or romantic weekend getaway, the Atheneum's guests stay in elegant style. The impressive marble lobby features towering figures from Greek mythology. Ancient tradition gives way to modernity, however, with the range of upscale services available, including a well-equipped fitness center.

 

While the Atheneum's prime locale puts guests in the midst of some of Detroit's finest cuisine, only steps from the lobby are four distinct dining options: Fishbone's Rhythm Café (New Orleans cuisine), Mosaic (international), Pegasus Taverna (Greek), and Pappy's Sports Bar and Grill.

Family Tigers game

It is in a great location! Hotel was very clean.Staff was very friendly. For what you get with the room, ie nothing - no breakfast on the weekends, the price was a bit high. Our children tried to take a bath before bed and they ran out of hot water. In the morning there was no hot water. They did tell us they were having a mechanical issue and it did come back on but it delayed our departure.

Atheneum Hotel Detroit MI

In the heart of Greektown Detroit. Would book this hotel again with no hesitation. We stayed for a week. Everyone on the staff was so friendly. A shout out to the shuttle drivers Floyd and Curtis. The area aroung this hotel is very safe. Very close and within walking distance to Comerica park and Ford field. Don't believe the hypw you hear about Detroit. The dowtown area is safe. There is a lot of police presence and they do their job keeping it safe.

Great downtown location

Located in Greektown near fabulous restaurants, Casino and a walk to The Riverwalk, Comerica Park, Ford Field, Opera House, etc., etc... People Mover station is around the corner and I don't think you can get a better location than this. Staff was great, rooms were big and clean. I would return next time I'm in Detroit!

Downtown Detroit

When Atheneum originally opened about 20yrs ago, I had to stay overnight since I heard so many great things about it ... exposed brick walls, cement pillars, sunken tub, etc. It was lovely. I gave it 5-stars then. Last month I returned to stay for a couple of nights. It was like rekindling an old love ... not so glamorous but just as lovely as ever. Still a solid 4-stars since it remains conveniently located near every major freeway, Greektown casino and restaurants and affordable priced. My king room was more like a king apt. It was spacious and comfortable. I'll return again and hopefully this love will withstand the test of time.

Tigers game getaway

The Antheum is in a great location in downtown Detroit. Right in the middle of Greektown and connected to the casino, it was easy to get around. The people mover stops there and will take you to other places while it is also walking distance to the major sports arenas. A little pricey but worth it as every room is a suite which offers many am entities.
