Motor City Casino
2901 Grand River Avenue
The 17-story, 400-room Motor City Casino is the only locally owned casino and as such, has a distinct flair all its own. Built with the help of noted automobile designer Chip Foose, the hotel’s interior décor complements the Post World War II “Future Retro” design theme of the Motor City’s 100,000 square foot casino space, paying tribute to Detroit and America’s love affair with the automobile. The hotel offers luxurious accommodations and premium in-room amenities, with upper level guests enjoying spacious living areas and panoramic views of the city. A 1,500-seat theater, outstanding dining, and sleek clubs and lounges round out the experience. Motor City Casino is located off the John C. Lodge Freeway (M-10) about a mile north and west of the immediate Downtown area.

MGM Grand Detroit has become a focal point of Detroit’s bold foray into the gaming industry. The casino is located off the John C. Lodge freeway (M-10) on the west side of the downtown area.

377 Riverside Drive East, Windsor, Ontario, Canada
Our Canadian neighbors across the river actually beat Detroit to the gambling punch with the opening of Casino Windsor in 1994. The complex was re-branded Caesars Windsor following a $400 million expansion that added a second hotel tower, 5,000-seat entertainment center, 100,000 square foot convention center, new bars, cafes and restaurants, and an upgraded gaming area that includes Canada’s first licensed sports book. All of this and more to accommodate the six million visitors Caesars Windsor attracts annually.
