At the end of this month I have to go to Southfield MI for training. Anyone in that area? I need to know of a good hotel to stay at that is close to the Galleria Officecentre.

I have to go to Detroit for bussiness



I'm sorry.


With all of the auto companies there are great hotels everywhere though.

Stop and ask the local sheep herder.

It's a dump for sure.

If you go to the casinos, I heard the one's on the Canadian side were far better & safer than the ones downtown. Didn't go to any of them, but thats what the locals told me.

My sister and BIL and I stayed at the Comfort Inn in Roseville. Nice hotel. That's down the street from Southfield a bit.

Change your topic to "I have to go to Southfield for business"

Big Difference.

I spend about 2 hours a week (closings) at 400 Galleria. Nice area, stay to the north and east and even west and it is all good. Plenty to do in the area.

If you smoke cigars, let me know. Copper Canyon is close, and they are herf friendly. We can meet ( not a date) I am just a nice guy.

Or let me know where you are staying and I can get where you need to be. I live in Livonia, grew up in Troy, Royal Oak and B-Ham.

Southfield has plenty of hotels in the area. There is a hotel right on Telegraph just south of 11 Mile Road which is 1 mile away from the Galleria.

Here is the Galleria

Here is the Holiday In tower

My mom works in Southfield at SBC. If you want to stay at a really high class place, try the Ritz Carlton or the Hyatt in Dearborn. This is of course if money is no object.

There are good hotels there - If I remember correctly there is a Doubletree just off of I-696 in Sfld that has/had a Shula's steakhouse in it.

BTW Southfield is outside of Detroit, people. It's not a great spot by any stretch but it isn't the urban ruins you see in the Detroit pics.

thatsmyjob Perhaps I or others can help steer you toward places to eat, etc. I was working (and will be again) in Sfld, and actually I worked at the Galleria officenter for a while about 5 years back.

Edit... duh on my part. Galleria, check.

Local good restaurants: Buddy's Pizza, Fishbones (Cajun food, love it), Beans and Cornbread (soul food)...

It has to be reasonable. I just don't want to stay in a shithole. I have to have an internet connection to.

I thought it was closer, but I am mistaken. Thanks ZFB.
