Guests of Marriott's Detroit DTW airport hotels are in a prime position to explore Downtown Detroit, as well as the university town of Anne Arbor.
Detroit, the largest city in the US state of Michigan, grew rich on the back of the automobile. For a look at the history of cars, it's hard to beat a visit to The Henry Ford, a combination of museum and attractions that is only a short drive from hotels near DTW airport. The museum also traces the history of other inventions, such as planes and trains, and contains many fascinating items of American history from Henry Ford's extensive collection. From the centre, you can tour the Ford Rouge Factory auto-assembly plant.
Detroit was also the birthplace of the famous Mowtown sound. Housed in the weatherboard house that once contained the legendary Mowtown recording studio, Hitsville, the Mowtown Historical Museum provides an entertaining and informative look at the sound that produced a string of hits in the 1960s.
Just a 25-minutes drive from your Detroit DTW airport hotel, the picturesque town of Anne Arbor is home to the University of Michigan. The university campus houses several museums, extensive parks, lovely buildings and the country's largest gridiron stadium.
