The second stop on our three state tour was Michigan, where we would visit even more family.
Hubs had Starpoints with the Starwood Preferred Guest® program, so we decided to stay at the Sheraton Detroit Metro Airport, which is located in Romulus, Michigan.
This 11 story hotel boasts 359 guest rooms and suites, offers shuttle service to and from Detroit Metro Airport (DTW), and is just a short drive from everything.
Since we would be in Michigan for four days, we decided to stay on the Club Level, which includes access to the Club Lounge. The Club Lounge was a beautiful, relaxing room that offered complimentary breakfast, hors d’oeuvres in the afternoon, and had packaged snacks and a variety of beverage options (ah, fresh brewed Starbucks Coffee) available at all times. Breakfast was simple with fresh fruit, hot oatmeal, a variety of cold cereals, milk, juices, and yogurt available. It was nice not to have to worry about what to do for breakfast. We also enjoyed having the ability to grab a bottle of water, a Kashi bar, or a can of soda whenever we felt like it. The afternoon hors d’oeuvres were nice, as well, although we didn’t take advantage of them every day. The staff in the Club Lounge were gracious and courteous. Jennifer even took the time to research a few restaurants for us and tell us where the locals go, which was very helpful.
Speaking of helpful. On our first day in town, we stopped by the desk to ask for brochures about area attractions that were kid friendly. Ivorie happened to be the desk clerk at the time. She apologized that they didn’t have any brochures available, but said that she would get some information to us. When we returned to our room, there were several printouts with details about area attractions which included maps. Yeah, Ivorie! That evening when we returned to our room, there was a platter of freshly baked cookies, ice cold milk, and a hand written note waiting for us. Nice touch. We appreciated the note, and we all LOVED the cookies!
Our beds were extremely comfortable, and for once, I did not have to plug in my heating pad on vacation. I always travel with a heating pad, because I inevitably get a backache from sleeping on hotel beds. Not this time. Yeah!
The pool was fantastic, and the kids loved it. The temperature of the hot tub was great, and I loved it.
My only complaint about the entire stay? Every time we stepped off of the elevator on the eleventh floor, it felt like we were stepping into a sauna. It was hot! For some reason, the air conditioning, which felt great in every other place in the hotel, failed to reach that spot. Walk around the corner, and you were cool again. It was weird.
Other than that, our stay was fantastic, and I would definitely consider staying at the Sheraton Detroit Metro Airport hotel again!
