Rated 4 out of 5 by DinaG Not Overly Impressed but satisfied
I booked this hotel because of its proximity to the airport; however, I was not aware that flying into the McNamara terminal (Delta Airlines) would have been considerably more convenient. They have two security checkpoints that take you from the hotel to the gates, and vice versa. The lines are much shorter.
I paid extra for the Club Floor, which is not worth the extra money. The snacks, breakfast, and happy hour selections were the bare minimum.
Like most hotels, the restaurant is overpriced. You can expect to pay $20 for a hamburger, ham and cheese sandwich, or even a simple breakfast. On a positive note, the food is good. We ate dinner at the restaurant. While overpriced, the ambiance is pleasant and the staff was exceptionally accommodating.
We were delighted to find out that the hotel will give you a pass to go through the airport security to walk around, shop, and eat at the McNamara Terminal Mall. That was worth it because you could at least find more reasonable lunch options.
As a SPG member, I try to stay at Starwood properties as often as possible. The room fit all of the cleanliness and comfort standards that I've come to expect. However, all of the windows were fogged over and we could not see out of them.

Very nice facility, convenient for an early morning flight out of DTW. The valet parking is a definite plus.

Rated 3 out of 5 by joyce43 was not impressed
This was not like I thought it would be, this was suppose to be a romantic getaway for my husband and I because he loves to see the airplanes landing and taking off, thought it would be nice to see it from our room, but unfortunatly we did not get that view, we got to look at a wall. We decided to eat at the resterant and had to wait over 30min for a table even though they had empty tables avaliable, not only that we were charged twice for our meal which there was not a good selection. The pillows were not comfortable at all. I'm a smoker so I had to go outside to smoke which was not a problem for me it was just where my room was located it was a very long walk. I just thought for the price I was paying, that this place was going to impress me, I will not be staying here again I could have stayed at another hotel for less money and been more impressed

Rated 4 out of 5 by UmeV Will definitely stay again
The hotel provided a clean, beautiful, and relaxing environment. The only negative event was the almost two-hour wait for our room service order which consisted of 2 sandwiches and a side salad.

Had an early morning flight so spent the night here to avoid hassle in the morning. Great facilities and staff. Best location for having to be at the airport very early.

As soon as I walked up they could not be any nicer! A key was given to me for the complimentary mini fridge. We all ate in the bar area, watching soccer games. The food and service was 100%. An just an elevator ride away before bed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JohnnyD619 Best Westin Property in USA
I've stayed here maybe 5 times. You'd never think you'd find such a great hotel airport, but if you're looking...THIS IS IT! Room service is great, restaurant is awesome, staff is very friendly and accommodating. If you have a special requirement, they'll make it happen! I've stayed at Westins all over the world, and this even beats out the Westin-Milan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Carlos2222222 We always stay here before we fly out of DTW (park and fly). . . . .
We ALWAYS stay here when we fly out of DTW for a week trip . .. why?
(1) It is a tranquil oasis juxtaposed to the jungle of major airport. . . . .and it helps us truly take the stress out of travel (cost approximately $200 on weekend and that is worth it to have stress free travel)
(2) Am SPG platinum so enjoy the perks such as YOUR24, late check out, comp breakfast/internet etc
(3) PARK and FLY deal (included with total cost of room). This is a huge perk. You pull up to Westin Mcnamara Terminal Valet and drop off your car and just walk into the hotel. Then when you land you just text your claim number and the car appears. STRESS FREE travel. This is worth staying here. (Valet I think normally goes for 25-30 bucks a night and this deal is 10 days of valet parking!)
(4) DIRECT terminal TSA access:
This security TSA gate might have 8-10 people max and is never crowded (but only if you dont have baggage to check in). Another reason to stay here.
(5) Exemplary service:
Everyone greets you with smile and aims to please. We love going to bar (now called Reflections not DEMA) and sitting at bar and having food and drink (food menu has changed as well) and talking to Kim. She rocks and is the best! But this is true of everyone here . . ..Kristy and Maureen also are amazing and friendly, attentive, and great people to talk to .. . .kudos to management for hiring people with amazing customer skills!
This is a brilliant idea...a hotel tucked in corner of Delta terminal.
You enter the hotel in corner side of Delta terminal. Then you take escalator down to lobby area. When you descend down escalator you are overwhelmed by the ambience imbued with an overwhelming feeling of zen and tranquility. Bamboo everywhere it is as if you are somewhere far away.
Love the gym, pool and whirlpool area (there are marble restrooms even in the pool area!)
The public spaces are great and exude tranquility (you forget you are at Airport terminal and the rooms are soundproof so you dont hear any plane noise etc)
Cons: Restaurant can be a bit expensive
Bottom line this is the best hotel in detroit airport area .. .. you cant beat its convenience and the service and rooms are top notch.. .no surprise we are repeat customers!
Room Tip: Get high floor and rooms with atrium view are great if you want the illusion that u are somewhere else!

As usual, we stayed one night where we had a morning flight departure. The hotel is obviously convenient for that purpose. We found the entire staff to be helpful, friendly and courteous. Our bell-person in the morning helped us with our bags to the Delta Sky Priority check in in the terminal. When we saw there was a line, and asked him to just leave our luggage with us, he left the luggage cart by the checkin, told us he would pick it up later so we did not have to wrangle our bags through the line, but he could answer the next request for assistance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brad1000000 First Class All the Way
Everything about this hotel is why the Westin brand is so great. It's only " negative " is that it sits on top of the Delta terminal of the airport. That's great if you're flying out the next day, but it is not convenient if you just want to stay at a great hotel in the southwest suburbs of Detroit. It is sooooo convenient, however, if you do have a reason to be at the airport--they have a security gate right next to the front desk! It took me 5 minutes to get through during the morning rush.
Be nice, and you're sure to receive an upgrade. Even if not, the club lounge access is very nice; evening food until 7:30. Nice continental breakfast in the morning starting at 6:30. They have an expresso machine and--I haven't seen this before--a massage chair! There's also a functional computer and printer.
The rooms and all other facilities are well maintained and first class. I wish all Westin hotels were this nice--I will be back.

Nothing makes it nicer than to walk to your hotel easily and be in your room so quickly. The staff and amenities were perfect and the convenience is unmatched. I was lucky to get a fair rate, however have heard that it can be a little spend-y at times. Nevertheless, my experience was great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beachlover888 Satisfied with yet another stay at the Westin
We use the Sleep/Park program every time we travel and enjoy it. We often eat at the DEMA restaurant, even with the prices a bit on the high side. Would be nice if the menu would change more often. Since we arrive late and leave early, we cannot take advantage of the special Westin entrance/exit to the airport. Extended hours would be very appreciated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NHPete Outstanding Layover Hotel
Missed my connection. Delta's "discount" hotel service never picked up the phone. I saw the sign for the Westin, stopped in and got a room with no problem, even at the gold level and with my corporate discount.
Outstanding facility and service. I tried the Westin Workout - what a great deal for $5.00. Clean clothes, keep the socks, great workout while waiting for my afternoon flight.
Excellent stay; highly recommend this Westin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Vaca14 Great Hotel, Terrible Valet Parking
The hotel location, amenities, quality, comfort, and overall stay was excellent for what we paid. We purchased a park and fly package that allowed us to have our car parked via the valet for up to 10 nights while we went on vacation. Everything about the hotel was fantastic except the valet parking situation. The hotel rooms were clean, quiet, and located very close to the private security entrance to the Delta terminal. We had a 9am flight and it only took us 5-10 minutes to get from our room through the security line on a busy Saturday morning. We had two encounters with the valet parking and both were bad experiences. We dropped off our car on Friday evening and had to stand outside and wait for 10 minutes before the valet came over to acknowledge us and then he seemed overwhelmed because there were at least 7 other cars jammed into the small area in front of the hotel entrance. We were handed a ticket and told to text the number when we land and they would have the car ready for us at the hotel entrance. When we returned from our trip I texted the number and 10 minutes later we received an automated text back saying the text service was not working properly and to call the valet service number. On our walk from the baggage claim to the hotel entrance I called the valet phone number 2 times and nobody answered. When we got to the valet area there was nobody there to assist but there were several cars sitting there running. I waited 10 minutes for the attendant to return to the stand and then gave him our ticket which then required us to wait another 10 minutes for our car. I don't think waiting 20 minutes for our car is acceptable for this size and caliber of hotel. If they can remedy their valet parking fiasco then I would give this hotel 5 stars but the disappointing valet parking set them back to 4 stars in my opinion.

Rated 1 out of 5 by sandy522 The staff is terrible
I asked for a receipt for my expense report and was told that it would be emailed - it was not and when I called I was told that I had to call back and talk with accounting. Accounting would not answer and it took days to get the docuements I needed. I looked at my Starwood account and it would not record an accurate receipt - terrible - NEVER sty here.
