Hello Detroit! Coming into town this weekend, had some questions!

Hey everyone!

Im flying into detroit on Friday for the League of Legends Summer split with some friends of mine. We are all late 20's early 30's, coming in from Maryland. I am staying at the Motor City Casino/Hotel and was curious about any reviews about the casino/hotel, if I should change to a different location/hotel. I will be attending the event at little ceasars arena, how safe is the area, am i good walking between the two, or should I just uber around? Any good breweries around in the down town area? Im fond of a good beer and would love some locals recommendations.

Thanks ahead of time!

Hotel Stay in Detroit

I'm travelling to Detroit on a business trip and looking for a good hotel for 7 days. Anywhere within 25 - 30mi from University of Detroit Mercy. I'd say no more than $200 - $215 per night or not much exceeding $1400. My last visit earlier this year (Jan/Feb 2018) I stayed at the Greektown Casino. It was OK.
 
Edit: I've looked at MGM, Motor City, Aloft, The Siren Hotel on Broadway recently caught my attention but I couldn't find a room within budget, and the same for Westin. Just looking for good recommendations. For example RiverWalk Hotel shows as a 4 star hotel, is in my budget, but has a 2 out of 5 review where 5 is best 1 is worst. The Crown Royal I do not want to stay at Greektown Casino again.
 
Unrelated? :At Greektown Casino - I loved the view and location downtown. The shower was fantastic. The AC in the room worked spectacularly. The food wasn't impressive, an old Holiday Inn breakfast was better. The room layout felt small, which was ok, but it also seemed a little dirty there too. Not a very good cleaning service. The robes were awesome to have but dirty/stained. There wasn't adequate storage in my opinion. Other guests were loud. WiFi... what WiFi? The lobby smelled really good and was always very clean, so it was nice coming and going. The staff was incredibly rude with the exception of a couple folks. The valet seemed slow and a waste of money. I really wouldn't complain overall but I wouldn't return to them to give them any of my money again.
 
 
Update: Thank you for all the wonderful suggestions. I never thought to check B&B's or a Lodge. My budget ended up getting cut, so the Westin and like hotels went off my radar. For what it's worth I'll probably never return to Greektown Casino simply because of the crummy food and valet. I'm going to go with Trumbull Porter! Will update the results.

Bachelor Party in Detroit

Hi /Detroit ! I'm planning a bachelor party in August (nine guys whose ages range from 27-36), and I am asking for suggestions as to what we can do there. We're planning to stay at the MotorCity Casino from Friday night through Sunday afternoon, since the groom likes to gamble (primarily Blackjack.) From there, it's largely wide open.
I checked out the subreddit wiki, and I thought about a possible brewery tour as something to do. We'll be driving in from out of town, so driving isn't a problem, but walking to different places/bars near the hotel would be awesome. I just have a couple of questions: (1) Has anyone stayed at the MotorCity casino? If so, how is it as a hotel and as a casino? (2) Which part of downtown has the most bars to possibly do a pub crawl? Is it anywhere close to the casino?
Are there any other places/things we can do? Any suggestions would be helpful, and I can clarify other details if needed. Thanks again!
EDIT: I searched the subreddit for bachelor party, and there's lots of suggestions (which are great), but I'm would like more information about the casino hotel and its location to everywhere else.

Drew And Mike – May 7, 2018

Advice for out-of-towner coming to Detroit?

Hey guys, I'm a lifelong Wings fan living out in Vancouver and will finally be making my first trip out to the Joe in April. April + Hockeytown = playoff hockey right? Well... my girlfriend could only get time off during early April so I will be in town from April 4-8, and plan to attend the Wings final two home games of the regular season (April 5 vs. Washington and April 7 vs. Carolina.)
From having spent years and years on /DetroitRedWings as well as on HFBoards etc. I've come to learn a few things about visiting Detroit from other similar posts, but figured I would make one just in case there is any new advice out there.
Accomodation - From what I can recall Greektown and MotorCity Casino are considered two of the better places to stay downtown. I'm leaning towards Greektown right now. How are the neighbourhoods around each of these hotels? Any other recommendations?
Tickets - I'm planning on purchasing a pair of tickets to each game through StubHub well in advance in order to ensure my seats while I'm in town. Would this be the best bet? I was also thinking of sitting lower bowl for one of the games but I've heard numerous times how the lower bowl during the regular season has no atmosphere due to the empty seats. Thoughts?
Off day - We will be arriving in town late on the 4th and leaving relatively early on the 8th meaning April 6th is the only real full day we have in Detroit without a Wings game to go to. I want to check out Hockeytown Cafe for sure, but outside of that I'm not too sure what to do during our free time. I know that the Tigers have their home opener on April 6th but I really am not much of a baseball guy...
Transportation - From what I can remember, people always recommend that you rent a car if you're coming to Detroit because of how spread out everything is and the fact that public transportation isn't too great in the city. Would it really be worth renting a car for our stay considering that we really only have one day that we need to keep ourselves entertained? I guess I'll add the following question under this category as well: I know all of the rumours about Detroit being a dangerous city are pretty overblown, but I'm still just sort of wondering... any neighbourhoods/areas I should not be visiting? Any general advice for being in the city?
That's about all I can think of right now. Thanks in advance for taking the time to answer and LGRW!!

Things to do in the Motor City

THINGS TO DO IN DETROIT, MICHIGAN Established in 1801 Detroit was home to many Indian tribes that you can see with some of the neighboring cities names and the best things I can say about a visit to the Motor City are it’s historical values. There are many places to visit and each one of them has lots of history behind it. If you travel up interstate 75 north for several hours you will come across many Indian reservations that they were awarded by the government for the effect they had on building this nation. Sports Teams You can begin with Joe Lewis Arena the home of the Detroit Red Wings since 1979 they recently opened Little Caesars Arena in September 2017, which is the home of the Detroit Pistons and the Red Wings. As you walk south down the famed Woodward Ave you will see the Home of the Detroit Tigers Comerica Park and just around the corner is Ford Field the Home of the Detroit Lions. In early 2018, all four major sports teams reunited back in Detroit for the first time in nearly 25 years, which has brought millions in revenue back to the Motor City. Theaters Further across the street you will see The World Famous Fox Theater, which has been a stage for many of the past and present superstar performers. It is the host to lots of thing such as, comedy shows, concerts, and kid events. Just about every entertainer from every generation has performed in this theater. Gambling Detroit is also the largest inner city that has legalized gambling. They have three hotel casinos, The Motor City, Greektown, and the MGM Grand casino. You can relax at either one of these resorts and have a great meal, place a bet, get a massage, listen to live music, or just mingle among the fabulous crowds that gather at any of these venues on a daily basis. Museums You can view first hand the lab where Tomas Edison had his first light bulb moment or even the workshop where the Wright Brothers reached the sky. These are some of the features of Greenfield Village. The facilities are over 80 acres wide with shops, dining, and events. Henry Ford Museum is another one of the attractions of The Metro Detroit area it has artifacts, exhibits, and some of the greatest innovations in American History. They have daily tours that include a guide through the Rouge Ford Factory. You get to see first hand Ford Trucks being made from the ground up until they roll off the assembly line and stored to be transported to dealers around the world. You can even view the first Model T or jump on a steam-powered locomotive to visit animals around the compounds. There's the Detroit Institute of Arts you can visit to see Priceless works of art. The Michigan Science center, the Charles H Wright Museum are two other museums in metro Detroit that house many works of art. Last but not least you have to visit the Motown Museum where all of the Motown artists started their entertainment lives. Berry Gordy is one of the most famous names in the world of music and he started his label right there on West Grand Blvd. in the heart of Detroit. Some of the artists that started there were Stevie Wonder, The Supremes, The Jackson Five, and The Four Tops. There are daily tours that take you into this historic building to see where these sounds all began. Restaurants The first class dining in Detroit is one of my favorite parts of the city. You can start off by strolling to Mexican town just down interstate 75 South to Clark Street. Or you can head to the downtown area to Greektown and enjoy some of the best Greek cuisine in the world. Once again there’s the three casinos where you can have breath taking meals at also. In my opinion I would say that there are great places you can dine at after nearly every turn of the steering wheel in Detroit. Image Most of all I was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. I have resided in the same home since I was four years old and every one of those years have had it’s share of ups and downs, but I wouldn’t trade those experiences for anything in the world. This city has taught me so much about growing into a man and how to turn a negative into a positive. The men and women of Detroit each have a saying that to do anything means that it must be done correctly and this applies to every part of life. Detroit is full of blue-collar workers that go into the factories of Ford Motor, General Motors, and Chrysler on a daily basis and has helped to build this country into what it is today. Each one of these motor companies have a slogan that has Detroit in it's saying. Starting with Chrysler's "Imported from Detroit", General Motors "Detroit's Strong as a Rock", and finally Ford's "Detroit Raises the Bar". A few years ago, when President Obama was in office the three auto companies got into a financial jam and they were bailed out by Obama's Administration to save these American jobs. That turned out to be one of the best things that any modern day President could have done. He was apposed with strong opposition from most Republicans in office, but at the end of the day the loans were paid back and in record time by all three auto companies. Best of all those factory workers jobs were saved by this action and the Motor City was kept alive, well, and still prospering because of this action by a revolutionary President.
