How it Ranks: The Townsend Hotel ranks #3 out of 24 Detroit Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in Detroit.
Our Take: This four-star hotel huddles in Birmingham, Mich.—a northern suburb of Detroit and just about a 30-minute drive away. Guests say the Townsend cultivates a classy atmosphere with its afternoon high tea and attentive service staff. Still, some recent guests say the ageing hotel could use a facelift, especially the dated rooms. Despite the antiquated room décor, recent guests do applaud the 300-thread count Egyptian cotton sheets and the spacious marble bathrooms. Aside from the digs, Townsend also boasts several dining options, though guests report Birmingham offers a wide variety of restaurants worth tasting.
