The Soundboard inside Motor City is a reception venue for the couple that wants to be different without trying too hard. The food is great and the service is top notch! The room rental is high, but was totally worth every penny!

We were married in their presidential suite on the opening weekend of the hotel. The setting was gorgeous and thehotel went to a lot of trouble to make sure everything was perfect. The reception dinner and dancing was set up in a suite directly across the hall. Michael, the banquet manager was fantastic. The food was delicious and plentiful. The hotel made a cake based on a picture we gave them and it was very tasty and looked just like the picture. Irene was very helpful wth the planning, especially since I had to do everything long distance.

For the most part, I was very pleased with this hotel. We stayed here on our wedding night, but that is the only thing I would use it for. I would not use it for the hotel for guests.

My husband and I are very layed back people but we had to wait for a LONG time for room service to come up. If our guests had to wait that long, I'm sure SOMEONE would have complained.

But other than that, the service was great. Everyone was friendly and the place was VERY clean and very chic. Just what I was looking for on a wedding night. We even got upgraded to a massive suite that had another room, a huge bathtub/shower and it's own kitchen. I will absolutley come back.

Motor City is a gorgeous hotel. Everything is updated and modern. All my guests raved about how nice the rooms were. The premier suite we stayed in was one of the nicest rooms I’ve ever stayed in. It was HUGE and had every thing for the perfect 2 day home away from home. Unfortunately – their service needs A LOT of work. We had a ton of problems while we were there. I had to check in twice the day before the wedding because I requested an early check-in so I arrived at 2 – I was told it would be ready in a half hour but when I arrived at 4:30 (1.5 hours after check-in time) – it STILL wasn’t ready and they lost my initial reservation – so they upgraded us to a premier suite – however – I was 30 minutes late for our rehearsal (and pissy) because of it. We had gift bags taken to all of our guests.. but our guests also received and invitation to another couple’s wedding and brunch tickets for their Sunday brunch. One of my out-of-town guests ended up at the other venue because of it. Needless to say – it caused A LOT of confusion. They were supposed to clean our room while we were at the wedding – they didn’t and when we returned I had to request towels at 3 am because my bridesmaids and I had used most of them getting ready earlier in the day. The day of check out they sent an incorrect bill with extra rooms on it. So – there were just so many annoying little issues that made the stay pretty exhausting. I filled out a survey at their request and at least 3 managers have contacted me to remind me (as if I can’t recall) that we were upgraded. However, most of the craziness happened AFTER we were upgraded. tsk tsk – Note to managers: never ask guests for feedback and then make excuses for poor service. One bride to another – steer clear!
