Traveling by Air

The primary airport for Detroit is the Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW). The airport is located about 20 miles west of Detroit.

Public Transport to Downtown Detroit

Regrettably, public transportation from the airport into Detroit is not easy, though it is possible.  The trip takes about 1 ½ hours – first on bus #280 northbound to Middlebelt Road and then bus #200 eastbound to downtown Detroit.  After 60+ stops, you’ll get off at Shelby Ave and walk to the hotel on Washington Blvd (about a 3 min walk).

Shuttle Service

There are a couple shuttle services from the airport to downtown. They require advance reservations.

Traveling by Train

Amtrak does offer train service to Detroit.  The downtown station is at 11 West Baltimore Avenue, which is about 3 miles north of the hotel.  From the station, take Woodward Ave straight south to the downtown area.  If the Q-Line (a trolley service that will run up and down Woodward Ave), is running then that will be an easy trip.  If the Q-Line is not yet running, then you’ll want to take a cab or an Uber to the hotel.  (The Q-Line is scheduled to begin service in Spring 2017 – we’ll keep you posted on that!)
