Stylish, comfortable, and modern, the Westin Detroit Metropolitan Airport is a family favorite. Standard in-room amenities include coffee makers, bath accessories, hairdryers, and climate control, with the option of adding refrigerators and spa robes. Cribs and rollaway beds can also be provided upon request. Free Wi-Fi is available to Starwood Preferred Guest members; otherwise, you’ll pay a daily fee for use (unless you go to the lobby, where it’s complimentary). Choose a standard guest room or spring for a one- or two-bedroom suite (which include whirlpool tubs!).
Hotel amenities include a heated indoor pool, fitness studio, and laundry service. The Westin Kids Club has thoughtful extras like the treat bag at check-in and family necessities from Service Express, as well as a kids’ “eat well” menu at the onsite restaurant. When booking, check for the Westin Family Package, which gives you a discount on a second room (connecting if possible) and free kids’ meals in the restaurant with the purchase of an adult meal.

Entering the lobby by escalator no longer has one enter the bamboo forest. Floor to ceiling black/dark brown wood with a splattering of lights at top creates a closed in feeling. The additional lobby seating is a plus.
In the guest room, behind the new dark brown headboard, is a large piece of artwork that is off center on wall or headboard, and is partially hung behind headboard. Totally put of place and continues the more aggressive theme of the lobby.
Prior to moving from Michigan, I spent many nights at the Westin. Too bad Marriott ruined a special place.
If you’re a Delta traveler you can’t get more convenient in this hotel. The place is beautiful the location can’t be beat. I did not have the best experience with room service I came in on a Wednesday night the restaurant wasn’t that crowded it took forever to get my food it wasn’t right. I asked to remake it half an hour later still no food so I canceled my order other than that this place is convenient. Don’t expect many toiletries But you will get quick access to the gates.In all fairness I will give the hotel a five restaurant 3 1/2
