The growing hotel scene in Detroit

The recent opening of The Shinola Hotelis just the latest example of how the hotel scene has expanded in Detroit.  It joins several other design-forward, boutique hotels that have opened over the last year or so, such as the Detroit Foundation HotelThe Element at the Metropolitan Building, and the Siren Hotel.  The Lonely Planet guide ranked Detroit as one of the top destinations in the world last year, and now tourists have a lot of great places to stay. Every time I go downtown, I’m amazed at the amount of construction and how much the city has changed.
