Hidden Gem in Downtown Detroit
We didn't realize this was a wedding venue and once we did, we were extremely happy to have everything in one spot! We did our rehearsal, ceremony, cocktail hour and reception at this one venue and many of our guests stayed the night in their beautiful oversized rooms. The venue coordinators, especially Heather Hischke, Catering Sales Manager, were patient with us, met with us as many times as we needed and extremely helpful in making our day awesome. I would recommend this venue a million times to anyone looking for a medium sized location for up to 190 people (as they have two rooms that could accommodate).Sent on 10/05/2019
I cannot thank them enough for being so detailed, attentive, informative, accommodating and willingness to make it as affordable as possible.

These guys are absolute lifesavers!
We had a hiccup with our original venue, which left me in a panic and convinced I didn't have a venue 5 months out. Exacerbating this is that we're an international couple, with an incredibly international guest list.Sent on 04/18/2019
I took a chance and contacted the Double Tree.
Heather and her team seriously came through. They met with me THAT DAY, and were all set to sign a contract with me to get everything going as smoothly as possible.
My original venue ended up coming through, but I cannot possibly recommend DoubleTree enough. Heather is so sweet, and so on top of everything. The place is gorgeous, and I'm sure if you choose it for your wedding, you and your guests will be well taken care of.

The DoubleTree was so great to work with. We had our Hindu ceremony here, which required a few unusual aspects (an open flame, etc.). The DoubleTree staff was very accommodating in regard to our needs, communicated with our priest and vendors, and pointed us in the right direction for a food vendor. They were very aware of our timeline and were quick to set up and keep things seamless when our food arrived late, and it ended up going unnoticed. Throughout the planning process they were very responsive to answer email and phone call questions, which is a huge bonus for anyone with lots of questions.Sent on 09/11/2019
