There are over 5,000 hotel rooms in downtown Detroit, which means you have plenty of options for your trip to The D. Looking to stay near the Detroit Riverfront? The Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center is the perfect location. The views are unforgettable from this towering property. The Crowne Plaza Detroit Downtown Riverfront also has incredible skyline and riverfront sights.

If you’re looking to stay closer to the entertainment district, the Aloft Detroit at the David Whitney is an excellent choice. It has a convenient People Mover station attached and a lively atmosphere at the WXYZ Bar, which is ideal for pre- or post-game drinks.

For a luxurious stay close to The Henry Ford, book a room at The Dearborn Inn, a Marriott Hotel. This elegant property will have you feeling like a true auto baron. The Henry is also a close option.

Check out The Henry Ford vacation packages at Doubletree by Hilton or Best Western Greenfield Inn. These are affordable options to get the family out and about – and learning.

Take the kids to Sea Life Michigan Aquarium or Legoland Discovery Center Michigan, both at Great Lakes Crossing Outlets, and check in to the Hampton Inn North Auburn Hills to rest up after a long day of play.

Pamper yourself with a day in Rochester and overnight getaway at the Royal Park – it’s luxury at its finest. If you like a more relaxed atmosphere, hit the town in Royal Oak and recover at Hotel Royal Oak or the soon-to-be-opened Hyatt Place.

Base your stay in Detroit around the type of hotel you would like to check in to. From boutique hotels, kid-friendly hotels, hotels with meeting space, or even a casino-hotels – Detroit has you covered.

Boutique Hotels in Detroit

Detroit is trendy and our boutique hotels speak to our style. If you’re staying downtown, take your pick from the Aloft Detroit at the David Whitney, the El Moore Lodge, Trumbull & Porter, the Detroit Foundation Hotel, the Inn on Ferry Street or The Siren. Whether your taste is modern, rustic, industrial or classically chic, you’ll find the most unique properties in The D.

The Aloft offers bright, bold colors and modern design, while honoring the history of the David Whitney building. The Siren takes a minimalist approach and offers unique dining and drink options, like the Candy Bar Detroit. The Foundation is straight up sleek – with industrial design blended with reclaimed Detroit wood. Their restaurant, the Apparatus Room, is enough to make a trip to the Foundation an overnight stay. The Inn on Ferry Street takes a different approach- their Victorian homes and carriage houses make you forget you’re staying in the heart of a bustling city. Trumbull & Porter has a hipster feel paired with excellent eats at Red Dunn Kitchen. El Moore Lodge has incredible views and a log-cabin feel, there’s nothing quite like it.

And that’s not where our Detroit boutique hotel adventure ends. We still have more trend-setting boutique hotels opening soon. Look out for the Shinola Hotel, Aloft Troy and Element Detroit in the near future. They’re sure to impress.

Kid-friendly food is always a plus (especially for those picky eaters). Courtyard by Marriott Detroit Downtown has the first ever IHOP – Applebee’s combination on site.
