    How is the Atheneum hotel ?
    Going for my sixth time to Detroit in february, but the hotel was always full.

    You can try Hockeytown cafe or Motorcasino hotel.

    Hey everyone, I may be heading to the Detroit area for the first time this summer as Liverpool will be playing at Michigan Stadium. I'll probably be travelling from London, ON in the morning and staying in Grand Rapids. Any travel tips?

    Cheers

    Do you have other business in Grand Rapids? Lodging in GR for an event in AA will cause unnecessary time and travel expenses.

    What's the deal with the Roberts Riverwalk Urban Resort Hotel?? Every time I call the place nobody answers. I booked a night on Oct 27th for the Dallas game the next day.

    My wife & I are going to finally visit Detroit and see a Red Wings game this winter. Any updates on the best hotels in the area? Also an update on restaurants in the area is always welcomed. We are very excited by the play of our young draft picks in the preseason, and another era of great hockey in the near future. Please, do not feel the need to dampen our enthusiasm. LOL

    Do the Wings attack twice in front of 102 & 103 or 115 & 116?

    Hi, 2 of us are going to the Wings game on Feb. 26, and will be in section 223, row 10, seats 20 and 21. Having never been to this arena before (I've been to the Olympia, and the Joe), can someone please tell me anything that may assist me in parking, when to get there, when doors open, etc. We'll be coming from London, and thru Port Huron, and returning after the game.

    Thanks in advance.

    There's a parking garage that allows you to prepay and reserve a spot before you arrive next door. If you don't mind a little walk there's the Greektown Parking Garage for $10. Greektown Casino has a garage that is free. There's also parking near Comerica Park and Ford Field. Nemo's on Michigan Ave has parking and runs a shuttle to the games.

    It's rare to find someone here that has been to the Olympia. The sign is on display inside the new arena. Welcome to the forum.

    Parking can be expensive (30+) but if you park north of LCA and take the Q-Line train to the game it drops you off right in front of the stadium. Tickets for the train are like 1-3 per person and there is a parking spot (circled) on the map in the picture. Parking there is cheap, less than 20. The X is where you get on the train.

    Thank you both for coming to my aid and taking the time to help me out. :) You both make it easier to enjoy the experience. BTW, I'm 73 and was at the Olympia in '69.

    I thought that dirt lot just north of the stadium on Woodward was $20. Fills early, but was cheap and very convenient.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't parking free at the Greektown Casino?

    If so - just hop on the People Mover for a few $$$ round trip (there's a stop by the Fox Theatre which should be a short walk to the LCA).

    Now - it's been several years since I've been to Detroit - so I could be wrong.
