In a dazzling display of urban sophistication, The Westin Book Cadillac Detroit has emerged from a $23 million renovation, redefining luxury and style in the heart of the Motor City. The iconic hotel, celebrating its 100th anniversary since its grand opening in 1924, has undergone a nearly year-long transformation that touches every level, from the lobby to the exclusive Presidential suites.
Debra Schultz, the General Manager of The Westin Book Cadillac Detroit, expressed her excitement, stating, “The hotel looks spectacular.” Enriching the Italian Renaissance design conceived by architect Louis Kamper in 1924, the property now boasts a soft cream color palette and contemporary patterns throughout. This revitalized aesthetic exudes a relaxed elegance, setting the stage for a new chapter in the hotel’s storied history.
The extensive renovation, led by interior design powerhouse The Gettys Group, encompasses all 453 guestrooms, meeting spaces, and public areas, breathing fresh life into the historic landmark. The project has not only preserved the hotel’s rich heritage but has also ushered in a modern urban vibe, perfectly aligning with Detroit’s ongoing rejuvenation.
One of the most notable additions to The Westin Book Cadillac Detroit is the opening of Sullivan’s Steakhouse in September. Nestled on Washington Boulevard in the space formerly occupied by Roast, Sullivan’s is a one-of-a-kind steakhouse offering bone-in and hand-cut steaks, fresh seafood, and signature cocktails. With another first-floor retail space soon to be announced, the hotel is set to become a hub of culinary excellence and upscale experiences.
John W. Rutledge, Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Oxford Capital Group, LLC, expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “It’s an exciting time to be in Detroit.” The completion of The Westin Book Cadillac project adds to the positive momentum in downtown Detroit. Situated near prime dining, shopping, and entertainment experiences, the hotel becomes a central hub for those seeking the best that the city has to offer.
Key highlights of the renovation include the complete overhaul of the Motor Bar lobby lounge, a fully renovated first-floor arrival experience featuring a new Green Wall feature, and the conversion of guest rooms to enhance guest comfort. The addition of pull-out sofa beds in executive suites, the transformation of guest bathrooms with walk-in showers and water-saving amenities, and the re-design of luxury Presidential suites further contribute to the hotel’s elevated guest experience.
The Westin Book Cadillac Detroit invites guests to explore the renewed Westin Executive Club Lounge, indulge in culinary delights at The Boulevard Room breakfast restaurant, and experience the updated meeting rooms and grand ballrooms, each adorned with new furnishings and modern design elements.
As the hotel prepares to celebrate its 100th anniversary, this transformative renovation solidifies The Westin Book Cadillac Detroit’s status as a timeless gem in the heart of Detroit, offering a seamless blend of historic charm and contemporary luxury.
