When you come to Detroit, you quickly learn that there is more than what meets the eye. Detroit offers so much to see and do, Thrillist calls us one of “America’s Most Fun Cities.” In our walkable downtown, alleyways are portals to nights of unbridled entertainment, streets are lined with restaurants, unique retail establishments, and music playing from buildings providing a soundtrack to your day. Here, we’re not defined by venues, the people and culture here are what makes us stand out from the rest. You may have come for meetings at the 723,000 sq. ft. TCF Center or 460,000 sq. ft. Suburban Collection Showplace, but what you didn’t know is that when it’s all over, you wouldn’t be ready to go home.

More than the ‘motor city,’ Detroit continues to transform itself with new boutique hotels, dynamic residential developments, innovative transportation options, a booming arts and culture district, strong communities and thriving small businesses. When you land at the international Detroit Metro Airport, recently ranked No. 1 mega airport in passenger satisfaction by J.D. Power, be prepared to experience a city like no other. 

So, when you’re ready to travel again, we’re ready to welcome you. For more information
