The Leland House Hotel is one of the few remaining vintage hotels in the downtown Detroit area. As discussed on www.forgottendetroit.com, during Detroit's heyday in the early to mid 20th century, there were many opulent hotels in downtown Detroit. The Leland was one of these, but unlike most of the others, it has not been torn down or abandoned, but is actually still in operation. Built in 1927, it features over 150 hotel rooms according to www.emporis.com, and houses the City Club, a (goth?) nightclub. Yet, while the Leland may still be operating, a glance at guest reviews on tripadvisor.com indicates that it is somewhat past its prime. The first several reviews describe the Leland as "Creepy and gross," "easily the most disgusting and poorly managed hotel," and "I'll sleep in the car next time." One reviewer recalled how, "My husband and I were in Detroit for one night only. We came upon The Leland and figured that for one night and the low price it would not be so bad. As soon as we walked into our room we were greeted by a rat, mice running in all directions and the largest sized cockroaches we have ever seen..." Another advised, "Hide your money in your socks." The Leland was designed by the Chicago firm Rapp & Rapp and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2005.
