Set in the Greektown district, the Athenum is an all-suite hotel ideal for families who want sophistication and comfort. The elegant suites feature complimentary Wi-Fi, refrigerators, coffee makers, and marble bathrooms with luxurious deep tubs or whirlpools. The hotel is only steps away from Greektown’s fantastic restaurants, so you can sample a variety of cuisines. Also, to make your stay convenient, shuttle service is offered within a five-mile radius, so you may not have to worry about renting a car or finding parking. Note, however, that there is no pool or amenities specifically for younger kids.

Great hotel, although the rooms are slightly dated the staff more than makes up that. Everyone who works here that I met were just five star people. I would absolutely stay here again just for that reason alone. Thank you for a personal touch experience!
The rooms are at the hotel or some of the largest I have found anywhere. The staff at the hotel was very helpful and a nice feature is that they have a free shuttle that will take you anywhere within a 5 mile radius from the hotel. The shuttle is under utilized and therefore it’s always available and the drivers are very nice and helpful. The lobby is very large with impressive Greek reproduction paintings on the walls. They have complementary coffee, bagels, and pastries every morning as well as several newspapers st the Lobby. My room again was very spacious, impeccably clean, with comfortable beds. It had two LCD 42 inch televisions, one in the living room and another one on the bedroom. The bedroom had two queen size beds and very comfortable with expensive sheets and pillows.The Wi-Fi connection with average but accessible anywhere in the hotel. Overall this was a very good stay.
