We are in Detroit maybe 4 times a year, initially coming down to visit family but now because we have come to love the city. The Westin is the best home base in town - fantastic pool, great bars (Motor Bar, 24 Grille and of course Roast) and always a buzz in the lobby with whatever film shoots may be going on in town being hosted.
Detroit is easy to get to from Toronto. You will need a car in town (the hotel has secure parking). The access choices are either a manageable 4 hour drive, Porter/ Air Canada to Windsor airport (about 15 min from downtown detroit, closer than the Detroit airport is) and rent a car at the airport, or VIA rail to Windsor (about 10 min from downtown) and then taxi across to the hotel. They can arrange for transportation.
Roast is our favourite restaurant in town. The bar area is spectacular and always packed, and the food delicious. I crave the porterhouse and brussels sprouts.
Rooms are nothing spectacular but clean, large, modern and attractive with great beds/linens /bathrooms. Ask for one facing outward - architecture in Detroit is gorgeous and there are some great views. Ask the concierge about things to do and where to go, where to avoid. Biking in Detroit is a fun way to get around town and the city is undergoing rapid change, for the better in the core areas.
Make sure you get into the Guardian building and to the DIA. Amazing.
