List of Recently Renovated or New Hotels in Downtown Detroit

Historic Splendor with Modern Convenience


Several hotels underwent big openings (or reopenings as the case may be) in downtown Detroit in 2007 and 2008. Each of the new hotels in downtown Detroit are different, luxurious and worthy your notice. Some are even on the National Register of Historic Places.

Hotel St. Regis

Hotel St. Regis in the New Center area reopened in the summer of 2007 as a boutique hotel after extensive renovations. It is also home to the restaurant La Musique, a Cajun steakhouse. Partners of the development include members from the Four Tops, the Supremes and the Miracles, who undoubtedly contribute to the promised nightly entertainment.

Westin Book-Cadillac Hotel

A Detroit mainstay that went vacant for 20 years, the Book-Cadillac Hotel underwent a major renovation and reopened under the Westin banner in October of 2008. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the renovated hotel contains many of its original Italian-Renaissance features. The hotel also contains Roast, a restaurant by Chef Michael Symon.

Doubletree Guest Suites Fort Shelby

The historic hotel, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, opened after extensive renovation in December of 2008. It is now all suites, managed by Hilton and boasts the Finn & Porter, a surf-and-turf restaurant.
