It would be fair to say that Detroit – aka Motor City, aka Motown – has had its problems in recent decades. Any city that loses 25% of its population and is declared bankrupt is clearly in less than ideal circumstances. And the good news? Detroit is a mid-western city under new management and very much on the up, with new leadership determined to show that this city, incidentally a showcase of 19th and early 20th Century architectural wonders, can rise again.Visionary new schemes to repopulate its abandoned areas, and even to launch urban farms where once there was wasteland, as well as better promotion of its cultural riches (art and classical music as well as the soul music for which Motown is famous), mean that Detroit is one of the most fascinating places for a discerning visitor, or for a someone looking to start a new business. Here’s our pick of the best places to stay in Detroit, a modern renaissance city.
