Hyatt Place Detroit Auburn Hills: It’s Not In Detroit

2

The Hyatt Place Detroit Auburn Hills Hotel Review is part of the Trip Report: Buckeyes Wolverines 2016 which covers the following places:


Getting There: The hotel is not in Detroit and Detroit Metropolitan Airport also isn’t in Detroit. It takes 45 minutes to get to the airport from the hotel.

Rental car return is fifteen minutes from the airport

I’m from Michigan so I know that Auburn Hills is not near Detroit. Downtown Detroit is forty-five minutes away. The closest affiliation Auburn Hills has with Detroit is my beloved Pistons who, incidentally, are leaving Auburn Hills for Detroit next year.

Like my Hyatt Place Cleveland Crocker Park Review, I am writing this one in the unlikely event that a points enthusiast ends up mid Michigan and is looking for a cheap, reliable points option.

The Hotel Itself

There’s nothing fancy about this Hyatt Place. It looks like the rest in the chain. At 2500 points and $55 the hotel is a great value.

The Room 

There was no suite upgrade but the room suited me just fine. If you are staying at this Hyatt Place, be sure not to get a room by the ice machine which I could hear making ice all night. Also, be sure to place the do not disturb sign on the door to avoid the disturbance from housekeeping in the morning.

Overall 

If you happen to be in Auburn Hills, avoid Bar Louie, stay at the Hyatt Place, and stop by the Palace of Auburn Hills before it’s too late.

  1. Totally useless bit of info coming up.
    This was the very first HYATT Place conversion.
    We stayed at this property circa 8/06 when it was being renovated from an Amerisuites. Only the 6th floor was converted and we Hotwired it, as did about 15 colleagues, for $35. Dining was in a bare room on the ground floor and the other 5 floors were empty. Stated my love affair with a @HYATT
