WHERE TO STAY IN DETROIT

What is the best area to stay in Detroit?

Known as the “Motor City”, Detroit, Michigan has undergone a huge revival to become a bustling and vibrant city. Once called “The Paris of The Midwest”, this city is full of old and beautiful Art Deco buildings dating back to the 1920s, which are well worth a visit. The Detroit Institute of Arts is a must-see when staying here as it holds one of the world’s finest art collections with works by famous artists such as Matisse, Picasso, and van Gogh! For more modern works of art, all you need to do is hit the streets or walk through The Belt, as Detroit has an amazing street art scene too.

 

Downtown is by far the best area to stay in Detroit. It is a safe place to stay with your family, and like in any big city, it is the main hub of activity, with great accommodation options, the best restaurants, nightlife, and cultural attractions. This is the place to be if you want to easily walk to all the main attractions in the area. If walking through the city isn’t your thing or you’re with young children, the Detroit People Mover is an elevated rail system that encircles downtown, giving you safe access to all the top downtown spots while enjoying panoramic views of the city.
