My heart was taken by Detroit many a year ago, I've never been able to pinpoint why such a place with a reputation like the 313 would be able to win this British girl over, but it has.
My Sister and I travel America frequently, this year we had a mini road trip from Boston, Erie, Detroit, Baltimore and New York City.
I've visited Detroit, MI a few times and knew that I wanted to stay as close to Woodward Avenue as possible, and close to downtown. St. Regis it was .
Thankfully the hotel is next door to the Police station otherwise the area in which St. Regis is located might have given me the heebee jeebees and I like to think of myself as somewhat of a tough bird. I wouldn't really suggest walking anywhere outside the hotel, if you have a car, stay here. If not, don't.
If you have a car...HA HA. Enjoy the valet parking.
I had a hire vehicle.
I had valet parking.
So you're charged $20 a day for this valet parking. Just to experience this imaginary valet parking was probably worth $20, cheaper than a comedy night, I suppose.
There is no valet parking, I think our cars are parked outside the building in there forecourt just to prove people do stay there. 'LOOK LOOK WE HAVE GUESTS!'
I'm just joking Hotel St. Regis, but paying $40 to park my car in the forecourt outside the building and hand my keys to the door staff isn't what I'd call a valet service. We stayed here for two nights and in those two nights I think our car was moved from the forecourt once, that or stolen for the evening. Thanks for the free fuel.
The hotel staff are lovely though, expect one of the door staff, who kinda looks at you like you've got breakfast left on your face but I guess the jokes on him 'cause his resume probably says 'Valet staff' HAHA forecourt watcher.
The hotel is average, nice and affordable. The rooms are ok, my sister and I played 'Is that blood or is that ketchup' a fair few times though and a window had a crack the size of a child but whatever, I had a nice sleep, I wasn't scared of losing my life and I got free ketchup.
