I received a complimentary nights stay at the MotorCity Casino Hotel in order to facilitate my review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
MotorCity Casino Hotel Review
On a recent visit to the Metro Detroit area, my husband and I celebrated the 14th anniversary of when we met. Although we were enjoying the time spent with family, we decided to take some time to ourselves and head down to the Motor City for a night of good food and relaxation. We had never been to the MotorCity Casino Hotel but had heard great thing about it from others who had visited. Located in the heart of Detroit, The MotorCity Casino is home to the hotel, restaurants, spa, entertainment venues and a full gaming casino.
We had reservations to eat at Iridescence ( a 4 Diamond rated restaurant with a 5 star view at the top of the MotorCity Casino Hotel) at 6 PM so we arrived a few hours early to settle in and take in the sights and sounds. Parking was convenient thanks to a parking deck attached to the hotel. Once we stepped through the doors into the hotel lobby, we forgot about the outside world as we were greeted by the hotel’s courteous staff and checked into our hotel room for the night.
Our room was spacious and the marble bathroom surprised me with how large it was. Usually this is one area that hotel rooms lack in but not at the MotorCity Casino Hotel. I was surprised to find both a soaking tub and a large walk-in shower. Not long after we arrived there was a knock at the door and I was given a wonderful surprise. The hotel had heard (from a pre-visit survey/email that they send before your visit) we were there celebrating our anniversary and delivered a plate of chocolate covered strawberries for us to enjoy. This was just what we needed to hold us over until dinner.
After our dinner at Iridescence (check out our review here), we checked out the many things to do at MotorCity Casino and were impressed with the cleanliness of the facility and professionalism of the staff. When we retired to our room, I came upon the on-screen pillow library while watching television. This intrigued me as a person who is particular about the type of pillow I sleep on. The pillow library allows you to order special pillows (at no extra charge) and have them delivered to your room. It is like room service for pillows. They had a huge selection to pick from including maternity pillows, lumbar support, and memory foam. You can even see if the selection is available before you order. This would have saved me from traveling with my pillow and is a wonderful perk that they offer.
We completely enjoyed our stay at the MotorCity Casino Hotel and would recommend it for anyone looking to enjoy a get away in the Motor City.
