    I can't think of a place that was filled with more history. I'm sorry to see it go. G'bye Joe, you'll be missed.  more »

    I went with my mother who uses a cane. We were directed to the ADA entrance, asked if we wanted wheelchair assistance (we didn't) and escorted us to our seats. It was awesome. Great time.

    I decided I needed to stop by and see a game at the legendary Joe Louis arena and I am glad I did. I understand why they want a new arena, the corridors were nearly impassable at times and would be a serious safety issue. The arena has marvelous history and statues of the great players in it's history on the corridor. I think the arena is a must see of any die hard red wings or hockey fan.

    I'll be sad to see her go, but its time. You can see the age in this building, especially when you are used to being in nice new arenas. Too bad the Wings couldn't pull together a good year for the farewell... at least they won their last game and gave it a proper send off!

    Nice to mix the sound for Ben Sharky at the Best Of Detroit in the Joe, June 2017. Too bad they are closing the Joe. It has been a good run with a lot of Championships.

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.
