... were really looking forward to spending some time with them and we're sorry they will not be taking the trip with us. The day has been spent making sure we have not forgotten anything and finishing Elizabeth's costume for her presentation on Tuesday. I'm sure sleep will be difficult tonight. Excitement for John Terror for Barbara. Hopefully more ...
It's almost 10pm and finally, the plane is almost about to take off. For the first time ever, we are on a flight that is almost empty! I would say about 30% full or less. Feel sorry for those suckers who paid extra for Economy Comfort. We are seated in the middle section where there are 3 seats across. Will and Ashley have an empty seat between them and so do Matt and I. Should be a pretty comfortable 8 hr flight with plenty of room to stretch ...
... Um well. The Institute of Arts" (I started to crack under the interrogation, and was soon imagining a strip search) at which point the navigator kicks in with a variety of cultural explanations. The questioning goes on for about another 10 minutes, and basically it was WHAT ARE YOU NUTS GOING TO DETROIT? Not exactly the Welcome to Detroit Tourism Bureau.
We then wind our way to the top Trip Advisor spot in Detroit - The Inn on Ferry Street. Hmmm, I'm not exactly a fan of ...
... to visit A2, especially as it was an away game day to no driving anxieties...and I had to fit a three hour conference call in, but it was all do-able!
We drove south through fog and arrived in Ann Arbor about 945am. After dropping mom off at Ruth Strang's home in a beautiful spot on the Huron River, I ventured to campus area and started wandering. It was a holiday weekend so super quiet (though the various red cups out side all the ...
We arrived at 4:00 pm, plenty early we thought, to get good seats. When we got to the window, the ticket clerk said the game was almost sold out and all that was available was obstructed view seats in the nose-bleed section. While we tried to absorb this news, two field level tickets were released and we got them. Score! Comerica park is in Detroit's theater district, so we walked ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mgm Grand Detroit
Nous avons passé deux nuits au MGM Grand Detroit. Notre chambre était belle, mais ce n'était pas celle que nous avions réservée. Il est bien plus cher que le Motor City.
Meine Frau und ich übernachteten Ende Dezember 2007 im MGM Detroit. Es war nur eine Übernachtung in einem Luxury-King-Zimmer. Die Hotelausstattung und das Zimmer waren fantastisch - ohnegleichen. Großer Plasmafernseher, und dann noch ein Fernseher hinter dem Spiegel im Bad - cool. Im "Wohnzimmer" gleich neben dem Empfang ist ein richtig cooler Kamin. Es gab nur ein paar Dinge, die mir nicht an dem Hotel gefallen haben. Einmal der Preis für die Nightclubs. An dem Abend, als wir da waren, kostete es 35 Dollar für Männer und 20 Dollar für Frauen. Das ist doch absurd! Außerdem durfte man keinen Alkohol mit aufs Zimmer nehmen. Als wir ins Hotel kamen, sagte uns jemand, wir sollten die Flasche unter einem Mantel oder so etwas verstecken. Ich kam mir wie ein Schuljunge vor! Das Nervigste an dem Hotel/der Ausstattung war der erdrückende Zigarettengestank im Casino, den Restaurants etc. Im Casino Windsor scheinen sie eine viel bessere Belüftung oder so gehabt zu haben (als man dort noch rauchen durfte), denn dort oder auch in vielen anderen Casinos ist mir das nie so aufgefallen.
My wife and I stayed at the MGM Detroit in late December 2007. It was a one night stay in a Luxury King room. The hotel facilities and room were amazing. Second to none. Big plasma tv, and a tv behind the mirror in the bathroom was cool. The 'living room' just beyond the front desk has a really cool fireplace. There were only a couple things I did not enjoy about this hotel. One was the price of the nighclubs. The cover the night we went was 35 bucks for men and 20 for women. That is just absurd. Another thing was that they would not allow you to bring alcohol up to your room. We were told by a person on the way in to hide it under a coat or something. I felt like I was in high school again. The most annoying thing about the hotel/facilities was the overpowering smell of smoke in the casino, restaurants, etc. Seems like Casino Windsor (when it was smoking) had much better ventilation or something, becasue it was unnoticable there, and at many other casinos.
My wife and I went for a short stay to unwind a little after the Christmas madness. The hotel was very nice and we were very happy with the room. It was clean, quiet, and quite large. The shower was big enough for 3 or 4 people. When we returned to the room in the evening the room had been straightened up while the bed and the lights had been turned down. They had also turned on some music and the large plasma TV was displaying a crackling fire. It was a nice touch. The spa was very nice and clean and there was no charge to use the pool, sauna or steam room as I had seen in another review.
Meine Frau und ich verbrachten ein paar Tage in diesem Hotel, um nach der hektischen Weihnachtszeit etwas zu entspannen. Das Hotel war sehr schön, und mit unserem Zimmer waren wir sehr zufrieden. Es war sauber, ruhig und ziemlich groß. Die Dusche war groß genug für 3 oder 4 Personen. Als wir abends zurück auf unser Zimmer kamen, war aufgeräumt und die Lichter abgedämmt worden. Außerdem spielte Musik und in dem großen Plasmafernseher konnte man ein knisterndes Kaminfeuer gesehen. Wirklich eine sehr schöne Idee. Der Wellnessbereich war sehr schön und sauber, und es kostete nichts extra, um den Pool, die Sauna oder den Dampfraum zu benutzen, wie ich es in anderen Bewertungen gelesen hatte.
I recently stayed at The MGM Grand hotel and had a wonderful time! The reception desk was friendly and knowledgeable, although the service was a bit slow. The rooms were beautiful and the beds were very comfortable. I did find it strange that there was no bathtub in the rooms, but the huge shower made up for the missing tub. The shower could literally hold up to 6 people...
We had a friends reunion at the MGM Grand Detroit on a Saturday Night and I must say that we were all impressed with the service and rooms. We all upgraded to the Concierge Level and that was truly worth the extra money. Our floor had a wonderful bar area where we could pop in any time between 6:00am and 10:00pm and snack on danishes, fruit, cheese, bread, coffee, tea, Red Bull, pop (Soda) for you southerners, Fiji Water and Perrier. I would have liked to see some deserts and small sandwiches myself but all in all , the service, staff and food were all very nice.
MGM Grand Detroit Hotel is definitely a beautiful hotel with a great modern feel.
I recently stayed at the new MGM Detroit for over a week for work. I arrived 2 days before the casino was open to the public, as part of a group of 10.
A solid 3 1/2 star hotel. They would be a 4 but they're missing some basics. (ala a bathtub in the room, etc.)
