Detroit has evolved from its original car-making "Motor City" fame, offering all the sights and amenities of any large metropolis. You can cheer on professional football, baseball, basketball, and hockey teams, hang out at clubs that were once speakeasies, or shop at boutiques and malls. A cluster of tall buildings greets you as you fly into Detroit Metro Airport (DTW), the primary hub for Detroit flights. The structures form part of the Renaissance Center, a symbol of the downtown's rebirth as a cultural and retail powerhouse.
Transportation from DTW
Stay at one of the larger Detroit hotels near DTW airport or further out so you can score free shuttles that many hotels provide from baggage claim. Otherwise, given the city's automotive past, you can drive your own private vehicle from any of the major agencies that occupy the rental-car campus near the flight facility; free campus shuttles travel there from the air facility. To skip driving entirely, book a taxi cab or luxury sedan from the Ground Transportation Center at each terminal. If you bought cheap tickets to Detroit, inexpensive public buses are also available from the North and McNamara terminals. Many Detroit vacation packages already include transportation, so make sure yours doesn't before booking your own ride.
