The Aloft Detroit at the David Whitney impresses from the moment you walk in -- Curbed Detroit says the hotel has "one of the most spectacular lobbies in the city" thanks to its grand skylight overlooking a four-story-tall atrium. Inside this classic neo-Renaissance skyscraper, the Aloft "mixes the historic with the starkly new in a way that genuinely works" (Oyster.com).
Like other hotels in the Aloft family, the property is fun and youthful with rooms decorated in blues and grays with bright red highlights. Rooms feature 42" flat-panel TVs, minifridges and coffee makers, walk-in showers, free Wi-Fi and free bottled water. Reserve an exterior room for great views of the city's skyline.
The hotel's WXYZ bar will feel familiar to anyone who's stayed at an Aloft before, as will the Re:mix lounge with couch seating and a pool table for free pickup games. There's also a fitness center and a small grab-and-go cafe with snacks and coffee. Guests will more likely be dining at nearby Detroit destinations like Lafayette Coney Island, for Coney dogs, or Detroit Beer Co. for Michigan craft beers.
