10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Such a gorgeous hotel. Everything was top notch, from the common areas to the rooms and it seems no expense was spared in creating this breathtaking hotel out of the main Detroit firehouse. The staff was welcoming, helpful and informative about the area. Detroit is a great city and the Foundation hotel is the place to stay.
Cons:The restaurant however was underwhelming. Again, the most amazing space, but our breakfast was just okay. And the coffee game needs to be stepped up.
8.0 Very good
Pros:The room was very clean
Cons:The restaurant is small but cute, couldn't smell any of the food. Breakfast was a little pricey an Bland
