“Motor City” spawned the automobile revolution with innovation and resolve that can still be felt at the Henry Ford Museum and GMnext Showroom at Renaissance Center. After decades of decline, the city’s famous determination turned to revitalization projects, transforming downtown Detroit hotels, restaurants and shopping venues into an inspiring travel destination.
The music and nightlife scene is fueled by the type of vibrant imagination that made Motown a household name. For proof, visit Baker's Keyboard Lounge for live jazz or Magic Stick for games and some of the hottest acts in the city. For a history of the city’s musical influence, our Marriott hotel guests will want to visit the Motown Historical Museum.
Casual diners will salivate over the brew selection and pizza at Detroit Beer Co, while the more sophisticated palate may turn to Cadieux Café (Belgium fare) or New Parthenon, a favorite in Greektown. To walk off the calories, take a short jaunt from our Marriot hotel to Detroit Riverwalk, a scenic oasis in the downtown area convenient to many shopping favorites.
For those wanting more than just a hotel stay, Detroit offers a well-rounded experience, with great music, food, professional sports venues and even casinos at your fingertips.
