The Siren Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- According to Bazaar, the Siren Hotel is "one of the best examples of the resurgence of Detroit"
- Foodies in particular will hear the Siren's call at the hotel's Candy Bar cocktail lounge and eight-seat tasting restaurant, Albena
- The hotel won National Geographic's 2018 Game Changer Award
"Like beaming into the foyer of a Golden Age Hollywood starlet" (Vogue), the Siren Hotel treats guests to roaring '20s opulence inside the newly renovated Wurlitzer Building. Richly textured furnishings and vintage statement pieces -- like the lounge's 1,500-pound Murano glass chandelier -- compliment the building's Renaissance Revival architecture. Plus, custom linens and hand-loomed blankets make even the base-rate rooms feel stately.
Despite its lush decor, the Siren has a solidly local vibe. Populace Coffee, on the first floor, serves brews sourced from nearby roasters, while Albena restaurant's seasonal tasting menu specializes in ingredients found in Michigan. Guests can also peruse works by notable Detroit photographer Bill Rauhauser in the hotel gift shop.
Guest rooms run the gambit in size and price. For instance, the property's smallest room, The Hideout, features twin bunkbeds and a private bathroom, well suited for backpackers and budget travelers. Penthouse suites are also available, with sweeping views of Comerica Park and Downtown Detroit. Bathrooms outfitted with brightly colored terrazzo tiling in the shower and vanity come standard, as well as free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs.
