Detroit is not only the largest city in the American Midwest but also the traditional hub of the American auto industry. From the modern art to auto shows, there is a lot to explore here. So, here are a few boutique hotels in Detroit where you can put up and explore the city.
MGM Grand Detroit
If you want a luxurious stay in the middle of the city, MGM Grand Detroit should be the perfect option. It is not the cheapest in town but you surely get your money’s worth in the form of a plasma TV, private sitting area, garden tub, as many as five restaurants and also an in-house casino. If you can drag yourself away from the activities at the hotel, you’ll find plenty more nearby. Iconic venues such as the Fox Theatre, the Fillmore Detroit and the Joe Louis Arena are nearby along with the Renaissance Center as well as the Museum of Contemporary Art.
Viking Motel Detroit
If you are on a budget but still want a comfortable stay, opt for Viking Motel Detroit. It will not burn a hole in your pocket and children under 17 can stay with you for free. Still, you get access to complementary Wi-Fi and bake your own snacks at the in-room microwave. The Motor City Casino is nearby and if you are a fan of Detroit Red Wings, the Joe Louis Arena is also not very far either.
Inn On Ferry Street
If you want a combination of classic Victorian elegance and modern facilities, do try out Inn On Ferry Street. Its tastefully designed suites are complete with flat screen TV and whirlpool bath. Corporate travelers can also avail the facilities at the business center while the heath freaks can head to the fitness center. From the Detroit Institute of Arts to the Detroit Artists Market and from the Detroit Opera House to the Cadillac Square, none of the major Detroit attractions are too far from here.
Greektown Casino Hotel
Greektown Casino Hotel is a centrally located hotel that offers you a good view of the downtown Detroit or the Detroit River depending on your room location. The rooms are complete with free Wi-Fi, 42 inch Plasma TV and a minibar while the in-house casino remains open 24 hours. Numerous restaurants, cafes and bars keep you refueled at any time of the day and the separate work space in the room is also useful if you are on a business trip. Many important attractions are located at a walking distance from here including the Comerica Park, Old St. Mary’s Church and the Ford Field.
MotorCity Casino Hotel
If entertainment is the primary goal of your trip then your search should end with MotorCity Casino Hotel. As the name suggests, there is casino and it is car themed, keeping the automobile heritage of the city in mind. There are six different restaurants catering to different tastes and you can also enjoy live music or just relax at the spa. Even your room keeps you hooked with its complementary Wi-Fi, iPod dock, minibar and the coffee maker that serves Starbucks. Fox Theatre is not far from here and nor is the Detroit Opera or the Comerica Park.
