Midwest Living Review
If you're looking for spectacular views of downtown Detroit, a hotel with all the amenities and a casino to boot, this is a safe bet. The building that houses automotive-themed MotorCity Casino Hotel was once a Wonder Bread factory, and it continues to make dough for those who find themselves on the winning side of a blackjack, craps, baccarat or poker table or on a streak at a roulette wheel or slot machine. The 400-room hotel prides itself on value and offers bargain room rates, food vouchers and other package deals on weekdays beginning at $149. Amenities include marble soaking tubs and walk-in showers, high-speed Internet and a pillow library. You'll find live entertainment in the Sound Board club (acts such as the Brian Setzer Orchestra, Goo Goo Dolls and Wynonna have appeared), and libations and/or dancing at Radio Bar, Chromatics and Amnesia. No one goes hungry while at MotorCity. Restaurants for every taste and budget include the white-tablecloth Iridescence (with an amazing view of the city), the Grand River Deli, the Assembly Line buffet, the Pit Stop burger joint and the High Octane coffee shop.
