Whether you know it as Motown, Motor Town, or just plain Detroit, there’s no denying that the former capital of the U.S. auto industry has enjoyed a resurgence over the last decade. Detroit has started to get some of its energy and funk back, and visitors are flocking to the city to see all the beautiful changes in person.
So book your ticket and treat yourself to one of the following luxurious hotels so you can enjoy Detroit in style.
Indulge in Luxury at the MGM Grand Detroit
Enjoy a luxurious stay in the middle of Detroit’s center by booking a room at MGM Grand Detroit. The MGM offers elegant, spacious rooms with large plasma TVs and marble showers. Upgrade to an executive room for extra-special touches like a private sitting area and garden tub. If you can get yourself away from the hotel’s on-site casino and five restaurants, visit the nearby Museum of Contemporary Art or the Renaissance Center or catch a show at the Fox Theatre.

Travelers at the Atheneum Suite Hotel will experience the unique Greektown neighborhood of Detroit. You will find plenty of bakeries, restaurants, and entertainment nearby, mostly with authentic Greek cuisine and themes. If you want to have a wild night out, try the well-known Greektown casino. Within the hotel, take advantage of the fitness center, the bar in the lounge, and a deep soaking tub or whirlpool within your own room.
Live it Up at MotorCity Casino Hotel
If you want plenty of entertainment available within your hotel, definitely book a stay at MotorCity Casino Hotel. Try the hotel’s award-winning fine dining restaurant Iridescence or the more casual deli and diner options. Then enjoy yourself at the on-site bar, lounge, or gaming area. When you venture outside, you’ll find yourself right in downtown Detroit with more classy entertainment options like the Fox Theatre and the Detroit Opera.
