No matter what rig you’re riding in on, you can’t visit Motor City without pulling into the Henry Ford Museum. This gearhead’s paradise is far from a simple garage stacked with memorabilia. Here, tons of indoor and outdoor exhibits are parked in Dearborn’s historic landmark, including Greenfield Village and the Ford Rouge Factory Tour. Admire the machines that made Motor City unstoppable when you stay at one of these hotels near the Henry Ford Museum.

While Henry Ford set his piece de resistance beneath the hood of a Model 18, his namesake hotel’s highlight is its collection of contemporary art, hung throughout. Rest your head on a custom top-of-the-line Henry mattress (regrettably not placed within a car-shaped bed frame) before a big day taking in The Detroit Institute of the Arts, a short drive away, and, of course, the ultimate Motor City masterpiece: the Henry Ford Museum, just down the road.

2. Red Roof Inn Detroit

Mustangs aren’t the only wild beasts causing a roar in Detroit; your stay at the Red Roof Inn puts you within earshot of the Detroit Zoo. Naturally, Red Roof Inn has a fondness for furry friends so feel free to leave your two pets in your room when you go visit the polar bears and baby chimps across the way. Trying to get closer to the Lions and Tigers? Ford Field and Comerica Park are less than a half-hour’s drive away.

3. Staybridge Suites, an IHG Hotel

Staybridge Suites understands that even a Ford fanatic might get a little road weary from time to time. So, after checking out the Henry Ford Museum, stretch your legs with a walk through nearby Inkster Nature Trail or Ford Field Park. Afterward, take off the driving shoes and slip into the hotel’s indoor pool and whirlpool before stretching out in your spacious suite, decked out with lashings of dark wood and brass.

4. Hampton Inn Dearborn Hotel Near Detroit - Hilton

Got your ice skates stowed in the trunk? You’re a slapshot away from front row seats at Red Wings when you check-in at the Hampton Inn. If you’ve already had a long shift during your travels, take advantage of the free shuttle to the Henry Ford Museum and Ford Motor Company. Add in a dip in the pool and a long nap in your queen room and you’ll have a set of fresh legs in no time.

5. Marriott Courtyard Detroit Dearborn

Chain Hotel

Working remotely at Marriott Courtyard in Dearborn has its perks. The Starbucks in the lobby Bistro provides the caffeine pick-me-up while having a wired-up desk in your room should make for a more comfortable work environment than being crammed into the corner of the kids’ room at home. You’re also welcome to use the business center whenever you need to print, fax, and refax those important documents.

6. The Dearborn Inn, A Marriott Hotel

Chain Hotel, Luxury

You don’t get much closer to Ford Country than The Dearborn Inn – it was built in 1913 right on what’s now the former grounds of Ford Motor Company. Far from a junkyard, the lush landscaping and two Colonial homes will make you fawn faster than the engine rev of a ‘64 Mustang. The Henry Ford Museum is just a walk across the street, effortless even if you woofed down a Dearborn Inn Burger at the Ten Eyck Tavern.

7. Country Inn & Suites by Radisson, Dearborn

Flying in for a quick trip to Motown? Country Inn & Suites keeps you 15 minutes from your departure gate. You can ease up on the brakes and unpack your luggage at a turtle’s pace, maybe even mix a drink at your suite’s wet bar and slide into the two-person whirlpool. Whenever you’re good and dry, the Automotive Hall of Fame and Ford Rouge Factory Tour are only a short drive away.

8. TownePlace Suites by Marriott Detroit Dearborn

Need a reason to book an extended stay at TownePlace Suites? We’ll give you 18. This chill hotel puts you close to the tee box of Warren Valley Golf Course, Dearborn Hills Golf Course and TPC Michigan. Free breakfasts, full in-suite kitchens, and laundry facilities on-site only add to the convenience. TownePlace Suites won’t be able to loan you a caddie, but there is a department store next door where you can buy an extra sleeve of balls.
