The Best Hotels in Detroit

Due to the construction boom in Detroit, new hotels are popping up left and right and there’s something for everyone and every budget. From hipster-chic hotels to luxury icons to cozy inns, Detroit offers a variety of accommodations to suit any taste. Most properties are situated in Midtown, Downtown, Greektown, and Corktown, so you can rest assured you’ll be near all the action.

One Park Ave, Detroit, MI 48226, USA
With a central Downtown location, the dog-friendly Aloft Detroit, located in the historic David Whitney building, enjoys an enviable position near area attractions such as Comerica Park and the Fox Theatre. The atrium alone is worth admiring purely for the soaring ceilings. Rooms are cozy with high ceilings, printed rugs, and colorful chaise lounges or window seats.
1114 Washington Blvd, Detroit, MI 48226, USA
Restored to its former glory in 2008, the Italianate Westin Book Cadillac Detroit in Downtown is on the National Register of Historic Places and has 453 neutral-toned guest rooms—all with city or Detroit River views—an indoor pool, and an award-winning restaurant.
624 W Alexandrine St, Detroit, MI 48201, USA
Part sustainable residential building, part eco-friendly lodge, the El Moore has been witness to Detroit’s turbulent history. The restored Victorian building boasts rooftop urban cabins, expansive suites, and bunk-bedded garden view rooms, covering various price points. Rooms feature reclaimed wood and subway tiles as well as ash paneling, geothermal heating, and solar paneling.
Detroit, MI, USA
The smallest hotel on our list, Honor & Folly is the place to go if you want to avoid the crowds and feel as if you are visiting family. The second-story guesthouse features two rooms, perfect for couples traveling together or a small family looking for a quiet escape. Hardwood floors and exposed brick abound and guests are welcome to order a picnic basket to go or reserve artisanal groceries in advance.
227 Orchard Hills Dr, Ann Arbor, MI 48104, USA
It’s not often one gets to visit a home designed by legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright—much less stay in one—but the Palmer House lets you do both. Situated in the nearby city of Ann Arbor, home to the University of Michigan, the brick and cypress home is one of Wright’s last masterpieces and features a teahouse on premises. Guests can rent the three-bedroom house for a quick getaway or for an event (25 people max for the latter).
