ALOFT HOTEL: Following a two year historical renovation, the iconic David Whitney Building has been restored to its former glory.  Completed in 1915, the 19-story building represents America's Golden Age. The building was designed by renowned architectural firm Daniel H. Burnham & Co., and features a Neo-Renaissance style exterior, four story gold-leafed atrium and glazed brick facade.

The redevelopment of Detroit’s iconic David Whitney Building includes the 136 room Aloft Detroit at The David Whitney, 105 premium residents, meeting and banquet space, and a high-end restaurant, Grand Cirque Brasserie. The David Whitney Building remains a symbol of Detroit's storied past and dynamic future.

While visiting Aloft Detroit at The David Whitney, you can explore Detroit's Foxtown neighborhood - full of many shopping and dining locations to choose from.

Our visit to Detroit will include: Cranbrook House and Gardens, Cranbrook Art Museum, Saarinen House Private Tour, the Henry Ford Estate Gardens (home closed until 2020 for renovation), The Edsel and Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Point and the Powabic Pottery Facility. We might possibly have time for the DIA (Detroit Institute of Art).
