The Motor City

Founded in 1701 by a French explorer and adventurer, Detroit exerted a profound impact on the world for most of the 20th century. One of the world's major automobile industry centers for many decades, the city shaped both U.S. and global culture, boasting a rich musical heritage exemplified by the popular "Motown Sound," a style of pop-influenced soul music. The largest city on the U.S.-Canada border, Detroit is a diverse urban center, each of its neighborhoods a self-contained world of distinct artistic, gastronomic, and religious traditions. A city of culture and architecture, Detroit is home to one of the nation's largest theater districts, as well as its biggest collection of Art Deco skyscrapers. With our world travel planner, United States vacations can be built around trips to Detroit and other destinations in United States.

Where to stay in Detroit

Detroit offers accommodations to suit every type of traveler, and you don't even have to stay in the central business district to take advantage of the finest hotels. Downtown lodging gives you easy access to most of the city's major attractions, but choosing a more affordable room in Detroit's outlying neighborhoods can also be rewarding. To explore the city's famously diverse neighborhoods, consider staying at a budget-friendly guesthouse on the southwestern side of the city.
