  • You just can't go wrong visiting this place. Always good to get back on Belle Isle and the visit would not be complete bw/out visiting the conservatory.  more »
  • My friend and I stopped in after visiting the Aquarium (located next door), and were glad we did. The inside is just beautiful and full of various flowers and plants. I could have easily spent a coupl...  more »

  • One of the best spots on Belle Isle for both architecture fans and plant lovers. I especially love it here during the winter when the humidity and earthy smells of the the tropical room take me to another place. Banana trees, flowering citrus, exotic orchids, and soothing sounds of the fountain keep me on the bench, relaxing in the heat. In the main rotunda are towering 40ft+ palms. The show-room is a great place for a special photoshoot: For Christmas it is filled with poinsettias, at Easter there are lilies, in the fall it is full of Chrysanthemums. In the warmer months visit the fish pond which is especially fun for kids. Also stroll the outdoor gardens that continue to improve every year with new additions to the perennial beds.
  • Lovely and affordable place to have a wedding! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of their "preferred vendors". I chose a vendor from their list and they literally had me in tears on my wedding day! They wouldn't deliver my chairs (which is why all of my guest are standing), my Mic, or arch because they booked my delivery at the wrong time then had the nerve to try to blame it on me! Then they tried to blame it on the staff at the conservatory! But once they realize I had all of my receipts and emails they just flat out starting lying and getting nasty with me, my mom, and my decorator. We BEGGED them to bring my chairs and they came up with all kind of lies and excuses! Then we couldn't contact the people from the conservatory because it was the weekend and no one was there except the staff that opens the gates and makes sure we left on time. So yea, if I were the folks at belle isle I wouldn't do any type of business with those people! The name of the company is Performace Staging in Plymouth, but they also use another name that I can't think of at the moment, but I do remember it's under party rental places in Plymouth, Mi. But other than that, I had no issues and I actually liked it better with the guest standing around us and looking back, paying all the money for chairs for such a sort amount of time would've kind of been a waste!
  • Great time and with a state park pass you don't need to pay to enter the park
  • Always loved coming to this place bringing family and friends over when they are visiting. Belle Isle is in my list of places to drop by from time to time and the conservatory is one of the prime reasons for it to stay in that list.
  • Wonderful displays year round. A tremendous collection of plants from across the nation and around the world!

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.
