Welcome to LodgingGuide's hospitality industry listings for the Detroit area.
Detroit is one of the few areas in the U.S. that is north of the Canadian border. Planes flying into Detroit from the South,
briefly pass over Ontario, after crossing Lake Erie. The centrally located Ambassador Bridge and Tunnel make
crossing the Detroit River between the two countries an easy and routine occurrence. The complex and twisting shape of the
land which comprises southeastern Michigan and southern Ontario, formed by the shores of the Great Lakes, makes street
directions at best approximate. Detroit's main arteries, to further complicate navigation, were designed to simulate the
boulevards of Paris by the original French residents of Fort Ponchartrain du Detroit (referring to the "strait," now called
the Detroit River, linking Lake Erie to Lakes St. Clair and Huron), and are arrayed diagonally like wheel spokes which have
their nexus at Grand Circus Park downtown, near the Comerica Stadium, a few blocks away from the Detroit River. Locals, and
those good with maps, who effectively maneuver this maze of wide boulevards and expressways appreciate that they are never
very far from where they want to be, and can traverse many neighborhoods in a very short time.
Detroit has a largely ethnic populace, attracted as immigrants by the emerging auto industry and significantly representing just about every nationality on the planet, which is more interspersed throughout the city than segregated into neighborhoods, although a few ethnic neighborhoods exist as well. The unusual land pattern and population mix which created the Motor City, now that the auto industry is less centralized here, are remaining to form one of the more culturally rich, as well as geographically beautiful cities in the country.
