“The Motor City’s kick back into high gear continues in 2018, following the September opening of a $863 million home for the Red Wings (hockey) and the Pistons (basketball). The arena is part of the District Detroit: an ongoing 50-block development of parks, restaurants, entertainment and sports venues connecting the city’s downtown and midtown. This year, there will be more new and notable places to stay in the city than ever before. Closest to the arena will be a December-opening Element hotel occupying the landmark 1925 neo-Gothic Metropolitan Building (starting nightly rate not yet available). Farther afield will be the first stay from Shinola, the cult watch and bicycle brand based in Detroit (starting nightly rate not yet available; Shinola.com). It’ll boast a restaurant from NYC’s own Andrew Carmellini.”
