Mini girls weekend to Detroit, electing to stay at the Doubletree in Dearborn. Finding it off the highway is a little tricky but rewarding as you get the famous Doubletree cookie upon arrival (but at 300+ calories each, you may want to resist). Check-in was effortless and helpful. The room was well-appointed and clean; noise levels on our floor were just fine (we were about 10 doors away from the bank of elevators). No highway noise whatsoever, and were were facing the multi-lane highway. The pool and work-out facilities were excellent.
Just keep in mind that this location is near the Ford world headquarters in Dearborn... about a 20 minute drive into the downtown core of Detroit. Plan for a designated driver, as there is no significant public transit or shuttle available. A one-way cab into the downtown will run you $40 (which in girls' weekend language: 3.5 martinis). You are indeed close to some shopping (a Target store is a stone's throw across the highway overpass).
