Westin Book Cadillac Detroit
Shuttered for almost a quarter-century, this grand 1924 hotel is undergoing a $200 million makeover courtesy of Westin. The stunning limestone and brick Italian Renaissance-style exterior has been lovingly preserved, while the interior is being gutted and readied for guests by October 1, 2008. Three ballrooms, two restaurants, pool, spa, and a sophisticated lobby bar are expected to be in prime condition by dedication day, as are 455 guest rooms, all of which are large but vary in layout and configuration, as they had to fit inside the Roaring Twenties-era building.
Room to Book: Traditional King rooms are standard but spacious and decorated with clean-line modern furniture and flat-screen televisions.
