Detroit Dollar Renovation

If you haven’t heard already…Detroit has filed for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. Well surprisingly one of the tallest buildings in downtown is going to be transforming 1,329 guest rooms and 100,000 square feet of meeting space.

Their response: This is a perfect time/opportunity for them to have a high volume of great contractors to put together this one-of-a-kind look hotel in Detroit, Michigan.

The designers immersed themselves in the fabric of the region and Detroit to incorporate the city’s vibe and personality into the new, comfortably modern decor theme. The color palate is neutrals and grays with teal accents, providing the perfect backdrop to stunning photography of Detroit architectural landmarks that will adorn the walls.
