Love the FD theme being a firefighter, but we’ll go back for how amazing the hotel is. We’ve started in many places in Detroit and the Foundation is easily our favorite so far. A bit farther away from the arenas, but the have a complimentary towncar service which was a nice surprise! The base rooms are good size with all the standard amenities and nice design and decor. Very clean and professional staff. The workout room has Pelotons, not many hotels do, and we love ours at home! Best part was the nice linen and incredibly comfortable bed! Usually I don’t sleep well away from home, even in upscale hotels, but I had a great nights sleep, biggest reason Foundation will be our new go to place!

I did not like being charged $100 extra and being told that it would be returned to my card if I did not have any charges when I checked out. The mini-bar did not have the alcohol that was listed on the card in the room so I had to call to make sure that I was not charged for it.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. So sorry for the miscommunication with the incidentals authorization at check in. At check in every guest is required to be charged our incidental fee of $100/night in case of any charges or damages. I went over your bill and ensured that the $100 will be refunded to the card on file. You will see the refund within a few business days. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

This is a chic hotel that combines the vintage Detroit vibe with modern decor and amenities and makes it work well. But what really impressed us was the service and friendliness of the staff. Clearly someone has taken the time and care to set a uniform policy and hire staff that is well above average. Every single person was welcoming and seemed to genuinely enjoy their job. What a change from the usual mediocrity that often tarnishes the hospitality industry. Well done to the Detroit Foundation Hotel. Highly recommended.

We loved our stay at the Foundation Hotel! The staff was super friendly, the hotel is so unique and our dinner at the Foundation Room was delicious. I love that the gym had a Peloton bike, and I'm now inspired to start a podcast simply so I can record it in the studio that the hotel has. We will definitely be back to visit and stay again!
