Welcome to Detroit Downtown Hotels
Downtown Detroit has seen extensive renovations in the past 10-15 years. Beside the modern high rises are buildings in good condition that were constructed at the end of the 1800s and early 1900s. While admiring the diverse architecture, visitors to the district will find attractions at the huge art and theater section and the International Riverfront with its plaza and promenade. Neighborhoods are interesting. In Greektown, Greek restaurants and casinos are popular. Some buildings in Greektown display ancient Greek-like architecture similar to the Parthenon. Of course, Capital Park is fascinating with its history linked to the Underground Railroad of Civil War days. Some of the most famous buildings in Detroit are within or near Capital Park. Many events take place in or beside downtown Detroit. America's Thanksgiving Day Parade is one of the most loved.

About Downtown Detroit
Downtown Detroit is a cool, cosmopolitan location that balances high culture and art with the very best of modern pop culture including casinos, theaters and live entertainment options. Although often associated with urban decay, racial strife and poverty, modern Detroit is currently undergoing major renewal lead by an invigorated community of artists that are giving “the D” an entirely new reputation.
Fans of high art will not be disappointed in Detroit’s cultural scene. The Detroit Institute of the Arts (DIA) is among the top 10 museums in the United States. With tens of thousands of works spanning the globe from times both ancient and modern, the DIA is more than a storehouse of great works. It is also a center for Detroit’s burgeoning art community and hosts exhibitions and live events featuring up and coming artists. Detroit also offers restored Detroit Opera House with an orchestra pit large enough to seat 100 musicians. The Detroit Opera House offers both a full opera season and dance season as well.
On the other end of the spectrum, sports fans will also not be disappointed. In 2000, the Tigers finished building their state-of-the-art facility called Comerica Park which now sits adjacent to the Lions football stadium. Locals call Detroit “Hockeyetown, USA” and Redwings games can be caught at the famous Joe Louis Arena.
Nature lovers and families with children have space to roam in the 20 acre Belle Isle Nature Zoo. Furnished with well-maintained walking trails and several exotic animal exhibits, Belle Isle offers a refuge from Detroit’s giant skyscrapers. The Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory is an architectural wonder housing rare flora including one of the nation’s largest collections of rare orchids.
Downtown Detroit offers amazing historical sights and museums. One must-see is the Second Baptist Church which was not only Detroit’s first African American congregation but was also one of the largest stops on the Underground Railroad. The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History is also the largest museum of African American History in the world and offers permanent exhibits as well as classroom events and visiting scholars.
