It's refreshing to find new hotels built in historic buildings, especially in downtown Detroit. This Westin is filled with character, charm and spacious accommodations, all qualities of early 20th Century buildings. 33 floors, 453 guest rooms, 35 suites, a wide variety of rooms to choose from, and tons of perks. Westin's signature amenities are made available to guests, including Heavenly Beds and Baths, 24-hour in-room dining and modern technology (55" flat screen TV, coffeemaker, mini fridge, WiFi, etc.). Rooms do vary in style as you can see from our images.
The gym is a good one, stocked with an assortment of Life Fitness cardio machines and a few strength apparatus. Good enough for a few workouts on the road, but boredom might set in due to a lack of product. Luckily, FitnessWorks is nearby ($15/day; 8-minute drive). Even closer is the Boll Family YMCA ($20/day; 7-minute walk). Even though the day pass is a bit steeper, it's easy to put a price on proximity and convenience!
Swimmers will not be able to accrue much yardage in this straight yet short pool. Consider a dip at FitnessWorks or Boll Family YMCA. Both sport proper, 25-yard lap pools.
Runners should consider an outdoor jaunt along one of our recommended routes.
