3.5 star hotel
0.31 mi from Joe Louis Arena
Best Rooms: The hotel is surrounded mainly by taller buildings, so don't expect much in the way of views. If you prefer to let in some natural light during the day, be sure to request a room with a window, as rooms ending in *03 - *12 on all floors (e.g. 503, 706, 910) are adjacent to another building and don't offer windows.
Best Rooms: The best views are either or Michigan Avenue or Washington Boulevard. Rooms ending in *15 (e.g. 1815, 2015) have a view of both streets and are the most popular rooms. Interior-facing rooms have mostly obstructed views.
Best Rooms: To enjoy a great view of the Detroit River, be sure to request a room facing Riverside Dr. W. on floors 8 - 22.
Best Rooms: Rooms facing 3rd St. on floors 9 and up offer a panoramic view of the city.
Best Rooms: Detroit River view is visible from rooms facing E. Lafayette St. on higher up floors. So be sure to ask for a River View Room when you check-in.

Area: Rivertown - Warehouse District
1.30 mi from Joe Louis Arena
Best Rooms: Encircled by the parking lot, Detroit Regency Hotel is situated where E Larned St. runs along with E Jefferson Ave., so you don't find much in the way of views.
