  • A true gem. This is the first place I take out of town guests who have never been to Detroit. When people from other cities think of Detroit, they rarely picture the stunning architecture that has been so lovingly restored here. The tile work, the stained glass in the elevator banks, that beautiful clock, a stunning mural. This is the pride of the city.
  • Excellent tour provided by Pure Detroit. Tours are Sat 1-2 & Sun 12-1. Check out the web site for tours of Detroit's finest landmarks.
  • Beautiful skyscraper and gem. The main lobby and bank is gorgeous, decorated with pewabic tile in Mayan Revival architecture and art deco, beautiful marble, and two Tiffany clocks. Check out Pure Detroit for free one hour tours every Saturday...great time learning the history of this magnificent building.
  • Arched art Deco ceiling in the lobby. Helpful security staff. I asked to go to the l*** b***, and once i had signed in, the officer showed me to the elevator and punched the button for my floor. The attendant at the specified office promptly answered my questions. I wasn't prepared to make a purchase right then, so she gave directions to me for when i am ready and she welcomed my return. -- tg
  • Gorgeous building with a long history. Catch a free tour on weekends starting at the Pure Detroit store in the retail level.
