Being a recovering college graduate, I’ve never personally been anywhere like The Atheneum. When I walked into the lobby the first thing that caught my eye was the massive Greek mural, along with the marble floors and other assorted classy digs. The room I was shown was like a small studio apartment, complete with a living area when you first walk in, full bath, and the actual bedroom past that. According to the guy who showed me the room, this hotel has the largest rooms Downtown. Plus you're right in the thick of Greektown, with all of its many great restaurants and bars.

The Atheneum Hotel is situated in the historic entertainment district of Detroit named Greektown. This hotel proudly celebrates its locale displaying over the top Grecian murals, columns and marble accents. I was shown a deluxe two level suite which provides a very spacious stay. The modern well kept room features a large jacuzzi tub and separate living room area. Visitors should be prepared to pay $20 / a day for valet parking, but if you want to park at the Greektown casino's free parking lot that would be the option I would choose. The Atheneum Hotel is also connected to Fishbones restaurant for any room service needs, or you could set out on foot to one of Greektown's many dining options for your saganaki fix. I would check out the specials online for this hotel for $255 you would get a one night stay in a deluxe suite, a $40 food voucher, and $20 casino credit.

Move over, David. There’s a new Greek in town. This place hearkens back to ancient Greece’s heyday with columns, paintings of naked guys and cellular phone philosophers in the lobby. It’s unreal swanky, but unlike the days of old, you’ll need more than a goatherd to get in the door. Any respectable room is going to cost you $280 a night…otherwise, as the desk clerk says, “Why stay at The Atheneum?” It’s stunning, well-located and a great place. Oh, here’s a fool-prevention tip: the button for the elevators is in a column in the middle of the floor.
