    If you are in town and traveling to mid-town Detroit, make sure not to miss this architectural gem. It is across Woodward from the DIA. The murals and artwork in this building are worth the hour or so...  more »

    This is a historical tourist attraction rather than a good library. Air conditioning not working, wifi is slow, the collection is really poor. Can't find a quiet place to read. Constantly disturbed by a shockingly loud announcement of their programs. Also noisy tourists and guides come near your desk to talk loudly every once a while. I was looking for a place to read some books and I ended up feeling like the elephant man.

    I been coming here since I was a teen. I helped recommend some of the Manga and video games in the Teen Hype Center when I was younger. Anywho, this library has almost everything. I love the structure, the events, the staff, and location.

    Worth visiting even if you are just touring through. Fascinating and awe-inspiring historic building that still uses card catalogs and has gorgeous murals! Grand and cosy.

    Wonderful children AND teen rooms with a huge variety of games. Also, the library holds amazing events throughout the year, my kids and I love this library!!

    Go and study on the third floor. Best place to study near the Wayne State University campus.

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.
