Nice hotel located on the Detroit river, the hotel is not your typical chain hotel, but that is not a bad thing, if your looking for something different I would recomend

I really didn’t like the fact that I had to park only near the river walk then walk the rest of the way to the hotel itself. If I were staying there and had a bunch of luggage, I’d consider that pretty inconvenient. I’m just used to places where you can just pull up to the front and unload your things. Other than that, Roberts River Walk is pretty nice, possessing a modern contemporary style. Most of the rooms have great views of the Detroit River and Canadian shoreline. There’s a fitness center, room service, free parking and free Wi-Fi. It’s definitely an upscale, sophisticated, luxury hotel. The staff is also super nice and helpful, and you’re within walking distance of Hart Plaza, the Ren Cen, and of course the entire river walk itself in all its beauty.

This is a cool, if slightly eerie, place to stay. It's pricey at $139, but the atmosphere is Shining-esque, ya know, if “The Shining” took place on an urban riverwalk. Strange nooks and crannies abound, and the hallway carpeting screams “creepy twin girls.”
It used to be a pharmaceutical factory, and the suites are multi-floored. The fitness center is super-cool - cold actually, unlike the stuffy closets of many hotel fitness centers - with vaulted ceilings and cool art deco glass. The rooms are spacious and interesting. It’s a fascinating hotel right on the Riverwalk. Walk to Hart Plaza in 10 minutes or to the Atwater Brewery in 10 seconds.

The Roberts Riverwalk Hotel just so happens to be the hotel where I had my guests stay during my October 2011 wedding. I just went back to the hotel to check in and see what has been new. They reopened under new ownership, previously operating as the Omni Hotel, last fall 2011. I was curious to see if the kinks had worked themselves out. The hotel is located right on the Detroit River in Rivertown and is set back from the sometimes overly congested Jefferson Ave. The expansive property is well kept and has an old school romantic feeling. All of the rooms are very large, the suite I visited had a couch and a dining room table. The bathrooms are magnificently lined in marble and adorned with antique sconces. A couple light bulbs needed to be replaced in the room, but I overlooked it as a minor mishap. The hotel does have a restaurant, which the concierge was not able to give me any details regarding. In fact, the concierge is also the only front desk attendant. While she seemed friendly it was very hard to get any information from her. I will say during a previous stay the brunch was very slow and overpriced. The hotel requires your vehicle to be valet parked which costs $5/per car. Aesthetically I really appreciate the Roberts Riverwalk, but their service does not match what you would expect from such a beautiful property. I would still recommend this hotel to a traveler that does not expect a full service experience.
