Element Detroit at the Metropolitan
Detroit, Michigan

The Element Detroit reinstates an important retail and entertainment hub that plays a vital role in the revitalization of its urban neighborhood. By honoring the craftsmanship and originality of design, Quinn Evans’ transformation of the Metropolitan into the city’s first extended stay hotel evokes continued optimism and economic opportunity defining Detroit’s future. The restoration meets the needs of a modern, growing Grand Circus Park community and pays homage to the informally-named Necklace District, a nexus for retail, fashion, and entertainment in Detroit’s heyday. Drawing upon this rich history, the reimagined hotel offers 110 well-appointed guest rooms, sought-after amenities, ample meeting facilities and outdoor spaces.
