Designed with a mission to immerse guests in both the neighborhood and a locally derived creative environment, the space is decorated with goods made by Detroit and Midwest-based designers and artisans - much of which is also for sale.
Upstairs from Slows, one of the city's busiest restaurants(full disclosure: owned by my brother-in-law), and on the same block as an artisan coffee shop and craft cocktail bar, the apartment drops you smack into the middle of the oldest neighborhood in Detroit. Corktown is charming, walkable and full of great restaurants, bars and historic attractions, including the workers row houses, the site of old Tiger Stadium and Michigan Central Station - the abandoned (and much photographed) train station designed by the same architects as New York's Grand Central. The last train left the station in 1988, and although scrappers have ripped out most of the marble and whatever else was left, it's still a stunningly beautiful Beaux-Arts behemoth. The view from the living room is unmatched. From the apartment, it's less than a 15-minute walk to downtown Detroit.
There are two bedrooms, each with a queen bed, for a capacity of four people total and additional sleeping arrangements for kids. Whether you occupy one or two of the bedrooms, you have access to the entire apartment.
One bedroom: $165/night
Both bedrooms: $215/night

We don't offer a home-cooked breakfast around a big table every morning, but we encourage you to head down to Astro - the artisanal coffee shop that acts as the neighborhood equivalent. Hang out with your neighbors; get an egg sandwich, house-made granola or pastry and the best cup of coffee in the city. For an extra charge, we can fill the fridge with local breakfast treats. On weekends, find the best brunch in town at Gold Cash Gold, our new restaurant, located in an old pawn shop.
