Clients Opinion

 “Wow! Best experience of my life! Soon as I pulled up to valet to park my car the valet staff greeted me with big smile and answered all my questions about the hotel. When I left the hotel the valet manager Amed was very kind to me and handed me amenity for the road. Hotel has very nice view of the lake and easy access to LCA. Front desk staffs also welcomed me with smile. It so nice to go on places where you feel welcome especially when I was traveling for my work. I want to say thank you to Metro Valet Parking for taking care off my vehicle and allowing me to go in and out with ease. Hotel had underground parking garage but for valet parking only which I was happy about. Parking Price is reasonable and hotel restaurant price is fair. Thanks! Looking forward to come with my family!

“I stayed at the Fort Pontchartrain a Wyndham Hotel in early August 2019 and was very impressed with the friendliness of the staff especially. From the valet parking, to the reception, and bellhop, everyone had a smile on their face and was eager to help. The hotel itself is gorgeous too, with outstanding views of the river and downtown Detroit. I would stay here again anytime! I would especially like to call out Ty for his advice on the local sites and activities, and JoAnn for getting me checked into my room super fast and early!”
