Edward Hotel and Convention Center
Why We Love This Hotel

- Down the road from the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village
- Within 15 minutes of downtown Detroit, Comerica Park and Ford Field
Detroit's mid-century prosperity largely grew from the Ford factories in the Dearborn neighborhood 15 minutes from downtown. Nowadays an affluent suburb, Dearborn maintains living museums that document America's industrial rise. Rising above all that is the sleek, towering Edward Village Michigan Hotel.
Standard rooms are spacious, with king and double rooms between 375-430 sq. ft.; rooms include flat panel tvs, single-service coffee makers and iPod docks. Select suites have classic pull-down Murphy beds; there's also an indoor pool, fitness center, a cocktail lounge and a coffeeshop onsite. Self-parking is complimentary, as is Wi-Fi throughout the hotel.
The sleek, crescent-shaped structure was designed by Charles Luckman, an architect most active in the 1950s-70s who drew the original plans for the Kennedy Space Center, built Madison Square Garden, and designed the United States Pavilion at the 1964 World's Fair. His creation has a soaring lobby atrium, a rooftop ballroom with 360-degree views, and rooms framed by floor-to-ceiling windows.
The hotel is a five-minute drive from all things Henry Ford. The Henry Ford Museum contains a collection of presidential limousines and early flying machines, as well as the theater chair President Lincoln sat in when he was assassinated. The Ford Rouge Factory Tour lets visitors watch assembly line production of new trucks, while Greenfield Village collects more than 300 years of history in original structures relocated to this period-style town including the lab where Thomas Edison invented the lightbulb.
