When you stay at Omni Detroit River Place, you will quickly forget that you are in downtown Detroit. Situated on the banks of the Detroit River, the hotel is a retreat from the chaos of this urban jungle. To get there, you have to drive down a deserted stretch of roads past the numerous warehouses.
The beds are a perfect 10 as far as comfort is concerned. Fender's Tavern in the lower level is better-than-average watering hole, with plenty of plasma TVs tuned into local and national sporting events. There is also an indoor pool, sauna and whirlpool.
There is a daily fee for secure valet parking, which is not included in the basic room price.
Unique Quality: The Omni Detroit River Place is a relaxing place to stay. Check the hotel's Web site for special rates and packages. Usually, you can get a better price on weekends and holidays when the business crowd is away. I reserved a room over the Christmas holiday using Priceline.com for $50!!!
Directions: I-94 West to I-75 South (which becomes I-375 to Jefferson Avenue East exit). Take Jefferson Avenue East until you come to McDougall Street. Turn right onto McDougall and follow to the end. Turn left and the hotel is located on the right side.
