  • 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
  • For anyone who has a love of art and architecture this is the building to see! The Pure Detroit Tour was very well done and insightful. The Artisans who designed and crafted the ornate facets of this jewel have left an incredible legacy in the city!
  • So lovely & the docent was very informative. We toured Friday @ 3pm. I love the grand history of Detroit. The Fisher Building next! Can’t wait until summer for the outdoors. Thanks Pure Michigan!
  • Absolutely beautiful piece of unique architecture. I highly recommend the free tours offered by Pure Detroit. If you're lucky you'll get Jonathan as a guide. His knowledge of Detroit runs deep.
  • An absolute must-see when visiting Detroit, particularly if you're an art deco/architecture fan. The wow-factor when you first walk in is ridiculous! Great coffee stand and the Pure Detroit store is great to browse.

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.
