The world’s first Shinola Hotel is Detroit’s new living room. Located in the heart of the city’s historic Woodward shopping district, this 129-room boutique hotel offers a completely original hospitality experience. Shinola Hotel’s accommodations are thoughtfully designed with varied layouts—featuring handcrafted mill-work, custom mattresses, and wallpaper inspired by patterns found during the renovation process. The property marries two restored buildings—the old T.B. Rayl & Co. sporting goods and hardware store and a former Singer sewing-machine store—with three brand new buildings modeled after downtown Detroit’s historic architecture. Indulge in a diverse array of culinary experiences at Shinola Hotel, featuring some of the best new restaurants in Detroit. Grab a classic cocktail in the Living Room or Evening Bar, taste the authentic Southern Italian dishes at San Morello, or try the brews and Detroit-style fried chicken at The Brakeman and Penny Red's.

This is such a cool, easy going and friendly hotel in the perfect location to explore Detroit. You are in the hands of a team who have been at the heart of the city’s renaissance. Delicious food and cocktails. I loved it.

Dear mastiffdad, Thank you for taking time to share your experience during your visit with us. We certainly do focus on the details! That's part of the reason we brought the Shinola brand downtown. It's important to us to be part of the growth happening in our neighborhood...construction site neighbors and all! I will share your notes with our housekeeping and engineering staff so we may continue to improve and hope to welcome you back soon.

"Try and get a room over the sidestreet"
"Ask for anything facing away from the construction pit!"
"Not sure on other rooms, but we enjoyed our room facing Woodward. It wasn't that noisy."
"If you like the hustle and bustle of Woodward ask for a room on that side of the hotel as it makes for a great view."
"If you're a light sleeper, ask for a room away from the main street (Woodward Ave)."
