Detroit Casinos Add Revitalized Vibe to City

Mar 28, 2008
Located in three distinct regions of downtown Detroit, as well as across the Detroit River in Windsor, casinos are creating a bit of Vegas glam to the cityscape. Open everyday around the clock, Detroit casinos feature well-appointed surroundings, big-name entertainment, and of course, exciting gaming. More and more visitors to Detroit are combining visits to the theater, restaurants, and shopping with a bit of Lady Luck.

Rows of limousines lining the street are a strong clue that you've arrived at the Greektown Casino. Situated in the corner of Greektown historic district, the Greektown Casino has created a vibrant gaming and entertainment hub for everyone - from fanny-pack grannies to hip, young adults.

Named "Best Casino" in The Detroit News, the Greektown Casino has upped the ante with a newly-expanded casino-hotel in 2008. With 100,000 square feet of gaming space and a stunning 30-story hotel, the casino will reveal its expanded gaming area in September 2008, followed by the opening of its hotel and events center in October.

With an emphasis on fun, Greektown Casino's gaming offerings include slots, video poker machines, and the region's largest poker room. Table games such as Blackjack, Pai Gow Poker, Three-Card Poker, and Caribbean Stud are staffed with friendly dealers whose main job is to make sure you have fun.

After trying your luck at the award-wining casino, prepare for a little palette temptation. Greektown Casino offers guests 4-star dining at the Alley Grille Steakhouse where USDA prime steaks and chops grilled to perfection are favorite menu choices. Or, try the best burger in town at the Grapevine Cafe where home-style cooking is served up in extra large portions. At the Apollo Lounge, guests enjoy the best in live local talent, including the blues and karaoke.

Greektown Casino's ideal location puts it just steps and minutes from Comerica Park, Ford Field, and the theater district, as well as the shops and eateries of Greektown itself.

Located in a former Wonderbread factory, MotorCity Casino embraces its Detroit locale with an auto theme on steroids. Belly up to the bar in the Chromatics or Headlights lounge, or grab a bite to eat in the Pit Stop restaurant - the Detroit casino puts a rev in your motor for some casino fun.

Located at the Grand River and the Lodge Freeway, MotorCity Casino features 100,000 square feet of gaming space and a new luxurious hotel, which opened in fall of 2007. The property features a fusion of automotive design, cutting-edge technology, and 400 luxurious rooms.

In the casino, gamers enjoy classic reel games, as well as video poker and video slots. For fast action, choose from one of over 70 table games that include Blackjack, Roulette and Craps. The smoke-free Poker Room features 12 tables of games, including Texas Hold 'em and Seven Card Stud.

Dining at MotorCity is as exciting as the gaming. Enjoy Iridescence, an elegant, rooftop 4-star experience, or the best in American and international cuisine at the Classics Buffet. For the best in home style barbecue, head to MotorCity Pit Stop. Partygoers in the group will enjoy the Overdrive Lounge or Radio Bar for the best in Detroit entertainment.

Near all major sporting and entertainment venues and just 20 minutes from Detroit Metro Airport, the MGM Casino and Hotel features a 17-story, five-star 400-room hotel with a full-service spa, pool and fitness facilities. The 100,000-square-feet of gaming area offers more than 90 game tables and more than 4,000 of the latest slots and video poker.

Complementing the experience are entertainment venues along with restaurants including one designed by renowned chef Wolfgang Puck. From martinis around the intimate fire pit at Ignite to unique twists on steakhouse favorites at Bourbon Steak, guests dine and drink in ultimate luxury. Afterward, dance to the rhythms of live DJs in the hottest lounges or catch big-name acts in the stunning Grand Ballroom. Then escape to your quiet place for rejuvenation in the MGM Grand Hotel.
