Suburban Detroit Hotel with Zagat-Ranked Restaurant
Crowne Plaza Hotel Detroit Novi is tucked into the suburbs, but it has the feel of a classy urban hotel. That’s due in no small part to its onsite restaurant, Novi Chophouse, which is ranked as 1 of Michigan's top 10 restaurants by Zagat. In a softly lit dining room decked in golden-hued drapes, you can enjoy upscale dinner entrees such as veal-and-lobster oscar and braised short ribs along with fine wines. And because the hotel is conveniently located about 30 miles northwest of Detroit, you can dine onsite before journeying into the city for further entertainment.
In the center of the hotel, there’s a soaring three-story atrium that surrounds a heated indoor pool. Three floors of guest rooms all overlook an airy inner courtyard. After exercising in the fitness room, feel free cool off in the outdoor pool (open seasonally), or stop by for a quick bite to eat at Deli Unique.
Detroit Metro Area: Music and Arts in the Motor City
The town of Novi is about 30 miles northwest of Detroit in a picturesque suburban enclave within Oakland County. Downtown, you can find the massive, 658,000-square-foot Detroit Institute of Arts, which is made up of 100 galleries, as well as an auditorium, a lecture hall, and an art reference library. The museum is currently featuring its fourth annual Inside|Out exhibit, which introduces reproductions of 80 masterpieces into the streets of Detroit to create a huge, open-air gallery.
Music is also woven into Detroit’s DNA—the city was the birthplace of the legendary Motown record label. Many of the label’s songs were born at “Hitsville, USA,” a white, two-story house that is now the Motown Museum. Today you can tour the house, which is loaded with photographs, costumes, and memorabilia from stars such as Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross and the Supremes, and the Temptations. Visitors can also stand in the original studio where the music legends recorded their hits and played frisbee with platinum albums.
