WHERE TO STAY on Valentine's Day in Michigan

1. Marriott at the Renaissance Center | Detroit Valentines Michigan Getaway

Exquisite view from our room at the Detroit Renaissance Center!  

Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center, 400 Renaissance Dr W, Detroit, MI.  We are big fans of this hotel for so many reasons.  First off, THE VIEW...Seriously? This hotel is connected to several excellent restaurants and three floors of awesome shopping, exploring and eating. 

Plus, if it's cold, you never have to leave the hotel! Perfect for a Valentine's Michigan Getaway!

The Detroit Marriott Renaissance is also connected to the Detroit People Mover so you don't have to deal with the hassle of moving your car, finding parking and dealing with traffic around Detroit just to reach Greektown or many other popular destinations.

Chris and I highly recommend getting a room in the upper levels so you can enjoy the exquisite view of the city or the water from the ceiling to floor windows. We have stayed there three times and love the views.
