The Carlson roots tour has begun. Despite an early morning wake up of 3 am, we were able to make it to the airport and get checked in with no problems. I'm not sure we are all really awake yet but Mia is anxiously awaiting for the restaurants to open. ...

... looking tigers. There were a few non-tiger features in the stadium as well. Another kid attraction is a Ferris Wheel that has baseballs for cars. The outfield pavilion has 6 statues, all in very dynamic poses I might add, of past Tiger legends. Throughout the concourse there are sculptures (towers, collages, thing-a-majigs, not sure what to call them) that showcase each decade of Detroit baseball.

The game was touted as a match up of two pitchers (Porcello ...

On to the final packing of our backpacks & getting ready to depart Michigan. I am bringing a bag of picnic-type food for our long day of travel today. Need to make sure that we are eating light & healthy as our travel to Europe will be long. Staying away from fast food / fried foods and keeping well hydrated will ...

... and less people bother themselves to get one because there's no need), it's because the population has increased 10 fold in that time. If anything, violent crime, by percentage, has been dropping for decades. It seems that the pro gun troopers argument is based solely on the 'fact' that good honest citizens freely and easily owning guns will reduce crime rates because criminals will be far too scared to attack anyone if ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Milner Hotel Detroit

    Worst then a DUMP!!!!

    from

    I did not read any reviews about this hotel. My husband and I booked through Hotels.com, and figured they were a reliable source. This was the worst hotel experience of our lives--we do not wish this experience upon anyone!!! The Webpage for this Hotel is a false advertisement. Do not believe any of their pictures, and/or adverstisement.

    Cheap, clean, great location

    from

    We are a couple of 60 something guys who came to town for a baseball game and some gambling. Although it is old and lacks some amenities, we found it cheap, clean, and in a great location. We walked to Comerica Park, Greeektown, Casino, RenCen, etc. Hotels a block away were $100 per night more. I'm a suburban Detroit native and I was surprised at the huge amount of weekend night life in the area. Which leads to some advice. Get a room on an upper floor to get away from the street noise. I should note that our wives probably would not have rated it as high as we did.

    I can's believe I stayed in this dump!!

    from

    For someone who travels almost every week, I can't believe that I stayed in this dump. I found out once to Detroit that there was an international convention in town and that is why all of the hotels were either overpriced or sold out.

    Dump***Dump***Dump

    from

    I have never in my life stayed in such a crap hole. There was not hot water from the tub. The water from the sink was rusty and got hot when I found out the hot was the cold and the cold was the hot.

    The place smells, is run down, and has no parking, so you need to be out of bed at 6 AM to feed the meter money or you get towed.

    This place is over priced if it was free.

    The Best!

    from

    This hotel is the best I could find. The location is great and rooms are nice. The price is unbeatable. If you do not want to spend on unnecessary luxuries this hotel is right for you.

    This is not a hotel. It is a housing project!

    from

    Look, let me make something clear right off the bat. I AM easy to please. I saw the mixed reviews on this site and booked it anyways, thinking that there is always a few that just can not be pleased. From the second you walk in the Milner to the second you leave, its borderline losing your lunch. When you walk through the front doors and into the lobby, the smell of 45 year old rotten eggs is the only thing that you can smell, it overshadows the cigarette hanging from the mouth of the guy at the front desk. True Story. The rooms are no more than 1/3 the size of a real hotel room. I could be using the restroom and holding my girlfriend's hand while she laid in bed at the same time. True story. The tv does not have basic cable, and the channels change by themselves. The only thing making the toilet flush is gravity. you have to hold the handle down for a good minute or two. Now, just a little background info on me. I worked for a rent to own company for about 6 yrs. and delivered to housing projects on the south side of chicago multiple times a day. There is NOT ONE of them that I would not have rather stayed in. This hotel can be rented for 155 dollars per WEEK!!!!! It's advertised in the lobby. More people live here than stay here for a night. Im about 6 feet exactly and my feet hung off the bed. You also have to pay for a parking garage, if there is a game, the garage charges 30 more dollars besides your normal fee. Just spend a few more dollars and go somewhere else. the omni is great as is the hilton in windsor.

    Not Bad For An Old Hotel

    from

    After seeing some of the reviews on this site I was a bit hesitant about staying at the Milner, but it turned out to be not that bad. The Milner is an old hotel and like many older big city hotels, the rooms are small and obviously past their prime. If this is a problem for you I would say stay away, but if you are looking for cheap accomodations in a great location The Milner is a fine choice. As mentioned the rooms were small and old, but the furnishings were nice and they were clean. The location if fantastic as you are within walking distance of both Comerica Park (detroit tigers) and Ford Field (detroit lions) as well as The Fox Theater, State Theater and Hockey Town Cafe. The people mover is right there too which gives you access to Greektown, Casinos and Joe Luis Arena. Our room looked right out over the outfield of Comerica Park which was nice. The price can't be beat as we got rooms for under $60. The bottom line is if you don't mind an old hotel that is very average, but with a cheap price and great location The Milner is for you. I would stay there again.
