Going to be a tough sell..Detroit has not supported the Stones very well in recent times. To think, at one time, 81k people saw them in the Silverdome....different time and town.

Anyone know of a decent hotel that allows dogs? My dog is a chow chow, so he is medium-sized.

Holiday Inn Express is right next to Comerica and is pet-friendly.
Not inexpensive though...
Holiday Inn Express

Unless the Holiday Inn Express moved - it's by Joe Louis Arena, probably 3/4 of a mile from Comerica Park

The Westin permits pets and I think I've seen dogs in the lobby at the Crown Plaza. Both hotels are near the Holiday Inn Express. The Crown Plaza has good views of the waterfront.

I'm planning Undercover's glimmer gathering for Detroit, if anyone wants to join us. The pre party will be at the Detroit Beer Company, which is two blocks from Comerica Park with good food (including Shepherds pie) and beer. It's within walking distance of the Greektown hotels, near the People Mover and the Detroit Opera's parking garage is across the street.

[www.detroitbeerco.com]

I haven't decided about the post gg - either in Greektown or with the Shidoobees at Bookies. Whatever I choose will be within walking distance of Comerica Park.

Most of the hotels in downtown Detroit are new or recently renovated. My favorites are the Inn on Ferry Street, the Crown Plaza and the Hilton Garden Inn. All three are comfortable, clean and have good service.

There is a lot to do in Detroit.

Greektown has restaurants, bars, hotels, fortune tellers and a casino:

[en.m.wikipedia.org]

There are several museums. The Detroit Institute of Arts has both Rembrandt and Diego Rivera exhibitions:

[www.dia.org]

Nearby the DIA are the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History and the Detroit Historical Museum with the Kid Rock Music Lab:

[thewright.org]
[detroithistorical.org]

Hitsville USA - the Motown Museum is fun:

[www.motownmuseum.org]

In Dearborn there is the Henry Ford Museum which currently has a women in rock exhibit along with the car JFK was riding in when he was assassinated. There is also Greenfield Village and a Ford auto plant tour.

[www.thehenryford.org]

There is historic Fort Wayne:

[www.historicfortwaynecoalition.com]

There is the Cranbrook Art Museum in Bloomfieldf Hills - 25 miles north of downtown:

[www.cranbrookart.edu]

Cranbrook has a Frank Lloyd Wright house:

[www.cranbrookart.edu]

The Lawrence Technological University also has a Frank Lloyd Wright house in Bloomfield Hills:

[www.ltu.edu]

Campus Martius Park in the middle of Woodward Avenue has gardens, a beach, restaurants, music and board/lawn games:

[www.campusmartiuspark.org]

Belle Isle is an island park in the Detroit River. There is a zoo, aquarium, maritime museum, driving range, etc. It's a great place to take a Detroit skyline photo - especially at sunset:

[www.michigan.gov]

There is also the Detroit Riverwalk:

[www.detroitriverfront.org]

The Detroit Zoo:

[www.detroitzoo.org]

There is a free Gm Renaissance Center tour:

[www.detroitriverfront.org]

The best area for Stones sightings is probably downtown Birmingham:

[www.enjoybirmingham.com]

The MGM is probably the best place to mingle with the crew.

[www.mgmgranddetroit.com]

There are three casinos in Detroit - Greektown, MGM and Motor City. Across the river in Windsor is Caesars.

There are several blues/jazz clubs:

[detroit.cbslocal.com]

Restaurants I can recommend are Fountain Bistro, Detroit Beer Company, Vicente's Cuban Cuisine, Union Street, Small Plates, the Rattlesnake Club, Jacoby's, Pegasus Taverna, Astoria Bakery and Lafayette Coney Island.

Some of the downtown hotels have free shuttles that will provide transportation to and from within a five mile radius. There is also the People Mover. The website doesn't show which July dates that service will be extended to 2am.

[www.thepeoplemover.com]

Cabs don't have a habit of roaming the Detroit streets - but you can call for one. There is also Uber.

Downtown Detroit around Greektown, Comerica Park and Woodward Avenue is safe to walk. But like any city after dark, I wouldn't necessarily walk around alone. The downtown has great restaurants and bars, lots of resident Millenials, friendly people, great architecture and lots to do.

Thanks for the great info and the invite GG24!

Looking forward to visiting Detroit for the first time and having and picking the tour back up for the final three.. Thanks again!

I'm looking forward to meeting you Mr. DDDD.

The Detroit Tigers finished up a rather dismal homestand yesterday afternoon and Comerica Park is now getting ready for THE ROLLING STONES!



OK, I just have two small requests please...

PLAY HITCH HIKE!
And Dear Mick, when you rattle off the list of nearby cities please know that I live in WOLVERINE LAKE!

Thank you.
Thank you, kindly.

See you Wednesday night!

What is the orange pattern on the tongue logo for Detroit? It looks more like the Cincinnati Bengals colors.

Detroit Tigers. More shameless attempts at getting the rabid sports fans on the Rolling Stones bandwagon. I know some people are OK with it, these sports teams are HUGE in these relatively smaller cities but I can't deny my whole distaste with the correlation between the sports teams and the Stones. Not only does the music have nothing to with these teams or sports in general, I'd bet none of the Stones follow, support or could name a single player on these teams. It's all about selling more high profit margin merch.

Most people, even non-sports fans like and for the most part support the idea of a city having a team. Don't have to be a sports fan to enjoy seeing (or not seeing in this case) a Seahawks with a Stones tongue...

Sports and music are both part of the entertainment business..
Combining them on posters and t-shirts makes good $ense.

I personally am not a fan of them either... at all.
Glad they make an alternative non-sports related one for most all the venues.

don't know about the detroit not supporting the stones observation. went to ford field and comerica park. both packed with good crowds. unfortunately detroit is not the blue collar town it once was, but the 2002 & 2005 shows i attended had a great party atmosphere. a good and very different vibe/experience from chicago. those detroit crowds i was part of: they loved their stones!

Whatever they can do to make more money is fine with me. At the end of the day it is a business, and the more successful it is the more likely we are to see them continue to play and put effort into a good show. Theres a lot worse corporations in the world your money could be going to than a rock band. When I buy a ticket or merch I see it as a donation to one of the biggest inspirations in my life...and their private jet fund haha!
