Nicest Hotel in Detroit . . . Anywhere!

Posted May 24, 2017
Pros: Beautiful and immaculate with the most professional and courteous staff. Wow is all I can say. To see it is to believe it.
Cons: Hard to improve on perfection.
Location: Birmingham, MI is studied worldwide for its urban design and walkability. Experience the dining and shopping for yourself and you'll understand.
My goodness, talk about luxury. This place oozes luxury like no other. We've stayed in the worlds finest hotels and this place sets the standard. The city is unbelievable too. Birmingham is one of the nicest enclaves in the USA. Unique in its high end shopping and restaurants, whether you are on a business trip or vacation, it will certainly feel like vacation!

Exquisite hotel close to fine shops and restaurant

Posted Jan 30, 2017
The hotel was perfect. Located close to shops and restaurants within walking distance to many varieties. The Rugby Grille was very nice with a superb wine list. The lobby was nice to relax and sip on a glass of wine as I'm being waited on. The beautiful chandelier hanging over the splendid bouquet of flowers surrounding the cherry oak table. The bell man and valet were great. The concierge was more than accommodating with my needs. The Roma's were perfect a mini bar, robes slippers, chocolates on your turned down bed at night. Mattress comfy with cushioned pillows. I was there with family would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. Business or pleasure this hotel is sure to more than satisfy anyone's wants or needs. Taxis are available if you plan on traveling further as are limos.

Once great hotel needs renovations.

Posted Dec 12, 2016
First room was an interior room looking at the hotel's HVAC unit that emitted a noisy humming sound. The staff could not have been nicer. They moved me to another room that was perfectly fine except for the duck tape used to hold the shower head in place... The hallway carpeting is dated. The common areas are dated. A major renovation would definitely restore this property.

Apologies for the tape. After investigating it was a temporary fix that had been forgotten and certainly not the practice of The Townsend Hotel! We have gone through major renovations with all new guest rooms and our bathrooms will begin in 2017. Again, our apologies and do hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay.
