“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

Both the inside and outside are beautiful. It is a Detroit treasure and it's easy to see why. If you are downtown check it out, there's a great lounge space for coffee which makes a it calm, gorgeous place to relax while in downtown Detroit.

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

We went no further than the lobby. It was cathedral like! The detail is Magnificent! There was not a charge to enter the building. We walked around the lobby area and took photos.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

This is a stunning building from the art deco period. You must walk inside. There are a couple of shops and a place to get coffee. But you are really there to see the stained glass, murals, Pewabic pottery and everything else. You only need 15 to 20 minutes here but it is worth the extra trip. You are close to other iconic sculpture if you want to explore more. You can get to this using the people mover.

Architecturally a delight. Also contains the Detroit Shop where one can purchase interesting Detroit and automotive related souvenirs.
