  • Detroit is not good... but it keeps getting better. The Valley brine is past the worst. If at some point, the buildings are renewed (hopefully not all) urgently all streets must be made. It's already better than its reputation...

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.
