Fathom Favorites : Detroit Hotels

1. Hostel Detroit

Hostel Detroit

In a city lacking in boutique properties, this is a cute, budget option in trendy Corktown. The hostel provides quirky, colorful rooms (shared and dorm-style), common spaces, and kitchens, as well as an educational twist: uniting guests with an authentic, wholistic understanding of the city and its offerings through free tours with volunteer "ambassadors" in the city.

2. Inn on Ferry Street

Inn on Ferry Street

Four lovingly restored Victorian homes and two carriage houses make up the cozy bed and breakfast in Midtown. Rooms are simple and comfortable, and the hotel is just steps away from great art at DIA and shopping in Cass Corridor.

3. Westin Book Cadillac Hotel

Westin Book Cadillac Hotel

After a $200-million face-lift in 2008, the historic Italian Renaissance-style hotel brings back the 1920s glamor to Downtown Detroit. Sitting under vaulted ceilings over marble floors in the Italian Garden, it's not hard to imagine the good ol' days when the Kennedy's, Martin Luther King Jr., Frank Sinatra, and Lou Gehrig passed through.

4. Honor & Folly

Honor & Folly

This design-focused boutique hotel is a throwback to the way people used to travel: By checking into one of a few rooms above the local pub. Rub elbows with locals at the coffee shop or bar downstairs, and get their tips on what to do in the trendy Corktown neighborhood.
