Dan Gilbert selling Greektown Casino-Hotel for $1 billion

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 63%. (I'm a bot)
Businessman Dan Gilbert has reached an agreement to sell his Greektown Casino in Detroit for $1 billion.
In a phone interview Tuesday night with the Free Press, Gilbert said the sale is only for Greektown Casino and not his other gaming properties, including casinos in Cleveland and Cincinnati.
Gilbert and his partners bought Greektown Casino in early 2013 when it had been through a bankruptcy reorganization.
Located in downtown's Greektown district, Greektown Casino-Hotel employs some 1,800 workers and features about 2,800 gaming machines, dozens of table games, a poker room, multiple bars and restaurants, and a 400-room hotel.
The sale marks the largest by Gilbert of any of the dozens of properties he and his partners acquired in downtown Detroit after he moved his Quicken Loans headquarters downtown in 2010.Among other uses for the cash from the sale, Gilbert could put the money into his Hudson's site development, now in its early construction stage, or in other projects he has in planning, including a major redevelopment of the Monroe Block east of Campus Martius Park or his development on the former Wayne County jail site off Gratiot north of Greektown Casino.

Hotel Stay in Detroit

I'm travelling to Detroit on a business trip and looking for a good hotel for 7 days. Anywhere within 25 - 30mi from University of Detroit Mercy. I'd say no more than $200 - $215 per night or not much exceeding $1400. My last visit earlier this year (Jan/Feb 2018) I stayed at the Greektown Casino. It was OK.
 
Edit: I've looked at MGM, Motor City, Aloft, The Siren Hotel on Broadway recently caught my attention but I couldn't find a room within budget, and the same for Westin. Just looking for good recommendations. For example RiverWalk Hotel shows as a 4 star hotel, is in my budget, but has a 2 out of 5 review where 5 is best 1 is worst. The Crown Royal I do not want to stay at Greektown Casino again.
 
Unrelated? :At Greektown Casino - I loved the view and location downtown. The shower was fantastic. The AC in the room worked spectacularly. The food wasn't impressive, an old Holiday Inn breakfast was better. The room layout felt small, which was ok, but it also seemed a little dirty there too. Not a very good cleaning service. The robes were awesome to have but dirty/stained. There wasn't adequate storage in my opinion. Other guests were loud. WiFi... what WiFi? The lobby smelled really good and was always very clean, so it was nice coming and going. The staff was incredibly rude with the exception of a couple folks. The valet seemed slow and a waste of money. I really wouldn't complain overall but I wouldn't return to them to give them any of my money again.
 
 
Update: Thank you for all the wonderful suggestions. I never thought to check B&B's or a Lodge. My budget ended up getting cut, so the Westin and like hotels went off my radar. For what it's worth I'll probably never return to Greektown Casino simply because of the crummy food and valet. I'm going to go with Trumbull Porter! Will update the results.

Staying in the Detroit area for business - need some help in the right areas to stay?

I'm going to the Detroit area for work next week and trying to find a good area to stay. I know the area is hit or miss and I really don't want to make a mistake. I'll be all over the area - Burton, Flint, Lake Orion, Plymouth. I don't mind having a bit of a drive to any of my meetings in the mornings. Also, wouldn't mind being near cool restaurants/bars. Can someone please guide me in the right direction?
Update: Staying in Greektown - found a cool hotel with a casino, bars, fitness center etc. Yes some days I will have a 1.5 hr drive to my appointment but at least I can walk around and enjoy the city. I appreciate all the advise!

Hotels in Detroit?

Hey guys, not sure if I should ask y'all or head to /Detroit but me and my girl are headin down for the game on the 13th for my birthday. We are drivin down from Saginaw and plan on going early and bummin around Detroit. We are going to have a car but are probably going to end up pretty influenced and won't want to drive anywhere after the game. We plan to hangout in Greektown and hit the casino/strip clubs after the game. I'm going to get us a room for the nite and want somewhere we can take the people mover and walk to or take Uber to. Somewhere not super fancy and preferably in the range of $50-$100. If anyone has any experience with hotels or motels, help us out please! Thanks all and LGRW!!!

Advice for out-of-towner coming to Detroit?

Hey guys, I'm a lifelong Wings fan living out in Vancouver and will finally be making my first trip out to the Joe in April. April + Hockeytown = playoff hockey right? Well... my girlfriend could only get time off during early April so I will be in town from April 4-8, and plan to attend the Wings final two home games of the regular season (April 5 vs. Washington and April 7 vs. Carolina.)
From having spent years and years on /DetroitRedWings as well as on HFBoards etc. I've come to learn a few things about visiting Detroit from other similar posts, but figured I would make one just in case there is any new advice out there.
Accomodation - From what I can recall Greektown and MotorCity Casino are considered two of the better places to stay downtown. I'm leaning towards Greektown right now. How are the neighbourhoods around each of these hotels? Any other recommendations?
Tickets - I'm planning on purchasing a pair of tickets to each game through StubHub well in advance in order to ensure my seats while I'm in town. Would this be the best bet? I was also thinking of sitting lower bowl for one of the games but I've heard numerous times how the lower bowl during the regular season has no atmosphere due to the empty seats. Thoughts?
Off day - We will be arriving in town late on the 4th and leaving relatively early on the 8th meaning April 6th is the only real full day we have in Detroit without a Wings game to go to. I want to check out Hockeytown Cafe for sure, but outside of that I'm not too sure what to do during our free time. I know that the Tigers have their home opener on April 6th but I really am not much of a baseball guy...
Transportation - From what I can remember, people always recommend that you rent a car if you're coming to Detroit because of how spread out everything is and the fact that public transportation isn't too great in the city. Would it really be worth renting a car for our stay considering that we really only have one day that we need to keep ourselves entertained? I guess I'll add the following question under this category as well: I know all of the rumours about Detroit being a dangerous city are pretty overblown, but I'm still just sort of wondering... any neighbourhoods/areas I should not be visiting? Any general advice for being in the city?
That's about all I can think of right now. Thanks in advance for taking the time to answer and LGRW!!

Things to do in the Motor City

THINGS TO DO IN DETROIT, MICHIGAN Established in 1801 Detroit was home to many Indian tribes that you can see with some of the neighboring cities names and the best things I can say about a visit to the Motor City are it’s historical values. There are many places to visit and each one of them has lots of history behind it. If you travel up interstate 75 north for several hours you will come across many Indian reservations that they were awarded by the government for the effect they had on building this nation. Sports Teams You can begin with Joe Lewis Arena the home of the Detroit Red Wings since 1979 they recently opened Little Caesars Arena in September 2017, which is the home of the Detroit Pistons and the Red Wings. As you walk south down the famed Woodward Ave you will see the Home of the Detroit Tigers Comerica Park and just around the corner is Ford Field the Home of the Detroit Lions. In early 2018, all four major sports teams reunited back in Detroit for the first time in nearly 25 years, which has brought millions in revenue back to the Motor City. Theaters Further across the street you will see The World Famous Fox Theater, which has been a stage for many of the past and present superstar performers. It is the host to lots of thing such as, comedy shows, concerts, and kid events. Just about every entertainer from every generation has performed in this theater. Gambling Detroit is also the largest inner city that has legalized gambling. They have three hotel casinos, The Motor City, Greektown, and the MGM Grand casino. You can relax at either one of these resorts and have a great meal, place a bet, get a massage, listen to live music, or just mingle among the fabulous crowds that gather at any of these venues on a daily basis. Museums You can view first hand the lab where Tomas Edison had his first light bulb moment or even the workshop where the Wright Brothers reached the sky. These are some of the features of Greenfield Village. The facilities are over 80 acres wide with shops, dining, and events. Henry Ford Museum is another one of the attractions of The Metro Detroit area it has artifacts, exhibits, and some of the greatest innovations in American History. They have daily tours that include a guide through the Rouge Ford Factory. You get to see first hand Ford Trucks being made from the ground up until they roll off the assembly line and stored to be transported to dealers around the world. You can even view the first Model T or jump on a steam-powered locomotive to visit animals around the compounds. There's the Detroit Institute of Arts you can visit to see Priceless works of art. The Michigan Science center, the Charles H Wright Museum are two other museums in metro Detroit that house many works of art. Last but not least you have to visit the Motown Museum where all of the Motown artists started their entertainment lives. Berry Gordy is one of the most famous names in the world of music and he started his label right there on West Grand Blvd. in the heart of Detroit. Some of the artists that started there were Stevie Wonder, The Supremes, The Jackson Five, and The Four Tops. There are daily tours that take you into this historic building to see where these sounds all began. Restaurants The first class dining in Detroit is one of my favorite parts of the city. You can start off by strolling to Mexican town just down interstate 75 South to Clark Street. Or you can head to the downtown area to Greektown and enjoy some of the best Greek cuisine in the world. Once again there’s the three casinos where you can have breath taking meals at also. In my opinion I would say that there are great places you can dine at after nearly every turn of the steering wheel in Detroit. Image Most of all I was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. I have resided in the same home since I was four years old and every one of those years have had it’s share of ups and downs, but I wouldn’t trade those experiences for anything in the world. This city has taught me so much about growing into a man and how to turn a negative into a positive. The men and women of Detroit each have a saying that to do anything means that it must be done correctly and this applies to every part of life. Detroit is full of blue-collar workers that go into the factories of Ford Motor, General Motors, and Chrysler on a daily basis and has helped to build this country into what it is today. Each one of these motor companies have a slogan that has Detroit in it's saying. Starting with Chrysler's "Imported from Detroit", General Motors "Detroit's Strong as a Rock", and finally Ford's "Detroit Raises the Bar". A few years ago, when President Obama was in office the three auto companies got into a financial jam and they were bailed out by Obama's Administration to save these American jobs. That turned out to be one of the best things that any modern day President could have done. He was apposed with strong opposition from most Republicans in office, but at the end of the day the loans were paid back and in record time by all three auto companies. Best of all those factory workers jobs were saved by this action and the Motor City was kept alive, well, and still prospering because of this action by a revolutionary President.

Movement Protips.

Figured we should get a list going of protips and such that may assist your fellow DEMF Redditors.. so here we are. Post 'em if you got 'em and I'll update this here list:
1) Forans Grand Trunk - The closest bar to Hart Plaza and a damn good one. Great beer selection (cheaper than at the fest), decent food, and the bathrooms are a mild upgrade from the portajohns at the fest.
2) Know your venue. Detroit is a 2am town for liquor.. the vast majority of bars/clubs will be closed not long thereafter (be it by the bar itself or the DPD). There are a couple of exceptions, notably The Works and City Club, both of which are licensed to stay open late. Every year it seems there are a couple other bars that manage to get away with staying open (if I remember correctly, Elysium ran late a couple nights last year), but City Club and the Works are the only guarantees.
3) Casino bathrooms. 24 hours.. always clean. I refuse to shit in a bar except in the most dire of circumstances. If you're over 21 and find yourself close to one of the casinos, have at it. Obviously a hotel bathroom is ideal but the casino bathrooms don't suck.
4) Detroit cabbies are generally a soulless and evil lot that will try and con you into paying too much off-meter. If EVER in doubt, demand that they put the meter on (as opposed to charging flat $10 or $15 or whatever), if they give you shit over it they're probably trying to cheat you. Get out, another one will be along shortly. If you do manage to find a decent and honest cabbie, get that motherfuckers card/number.
5) Come prepared. Drink water, wear sunblock, if you smoke bring extra packs (they sell 'em at the fest but for something like $900 a pack... and people will be trying to bum 'em from ya left and right). If you happen to see the Camel Cigarette trailer - that's your goto for cheap smokes (they usually scan your ID so they can mail you promotional bullshit).
6) Late night eats. Coneys. Lafayette and American Coney Island are both downtown (right next to each other), and both open all night. Expect a crowd unless it's real late (say after 3:30-400). Plakas in Greektown is a viable option as well. Coneys are best enjoyed while drunk
7) Earplugs. Definitely. I didn't bring any two years ago and by the end my inner ear was hurting. Especially on the main stage, last year the bass was just out of control. I put in the plugs when I'm seeing a DJ I don't care that much about, but when it's someone I'm really there to see I will take them out so I can hear everything. Makes all the difference in the world.
8) The lines. The first day when people are waiting in line, it is going to be PACKED. Try to get your wristbands early. Maybe the day before. I think they are mailing me mine. If you do have to stand in line, there are multiple lines... go to the short one! Seems simple but I stood in the longest one thinking it was the only Gen Admission line... not true. There are like 8 Gen Adm lines. Be smart don't be a sheep.
Respond with anything I've missed and/or fucked up and I'll edit this.

22/M solotravelling Abu Dhabi - New York - Nashville - Detroit - San Francisco - Vegas - Washington

So I'm spending about three days in each city, with the exception of New York where I'm spending 7 days at the start and 2 days at the end.
I'm doing this all in February/March 2015
Any advice on anything would be appreciated! But I'll talk about what I've got going so far and you can critique.
New York - I want to stay at The Out for the first seven nights, not sure about where to stay for the last two nights.
Nashville - Airbnb. Because hotels downtown are crazy expensive
Detroit - Greektown Casino, going to use a bikeshare bike to ride around and see the city
San Francisco - USA Hostels, I've heard this is like the greatest hostel ever. Gonna do Alcatraz and the Intel Museum.
Vegas - No idea where to stay, everywhere looks lovely. Want to see Penn and Teller and Blue Man Group, not sure what else.
Washington - Not sure where to stay, just want to see the usual stuff. Whitehouse, Pentagon etc.
Oh and Abu Dhabi is mainly for transiting but I have about two days there, so any suggestions on what to do would be cool.
I love hostel atmospheres but I really like modern private rooms with a tv and a fridge. Space Hotel in Melbourne is basically my ideal kind of place to stay - http://www.spacehotel.com.au/
In terms of transport I'm pretty much thinking of flying everywhere, mainly on Southwest with the exception of getting Megabus from Washington to New York at the end. Any suggestions on the best/cheapest order to do these cities in would be great.
Also, I'm a little scared about the short layovers some domestic flights have. Is 35/45 minutes really enough to change planes? Is it really as simple as just walking from one gate to the other?
Thank you for reading if you did! All comments and suggestions would be appreciated! This is my first time really solotravelling, early this year I solotravelled to Melbourne and Sydney but they were both cities in the same country so it was much easier.

Did you know that Detroit is fine, has no crime, jobs, or neighborhood-blight issues? At least, that's what its meticulously edited wikipedia pages say.

The main Detroit wikipedia page briefly mentions:
Between 2000 and 2010, the city's population declined by 25%.[14] Among major American cities during the decade, only New Orleans experienced a greater decrease by percentage.[14]
But there's no mention of any real issues with the economy. This is the closest the main Detroit page gets to that:
The Detroit automakers and local manufacturing have made significant restructurings in response to market competition.
There's some mention of issues hitting Detroit in the Urban Development in Detroit page. But links to that page have been scrubbed from any other Detroit-related page (seriously, check the edit histories).
Ok, so maybe changes to Detroit belong in the History of Detroit page? Well, that page is pretty clean, as well.
Here's the entire Recent Developments Section of the History of Detroit page. This is the only section (except for a very brief blurb in the "Metropolitan Region" section right above it) that mentions events from 2000-Present:
In the 1990s, the city began to experience a revival, much of it centered in Downtown, Midtown, and New Center. One Detroit Center (1993) arose on the city skyline. In the ensuing years, three casino resort hotels opened in Detroit: MGM Grand Detroit, MotorCity Casino, and Greektown Casino which then debuted as resort hotels in 2007-08. New downtown stadiums Comerica Park and Ford Field were constructed for the Detroit Tigers and Detroit Lions in 2000 and 2002, respectively; this placed the Lions' stadium in the city proper for the first time since 1974. In 2008, the city witnessed major restorations of the historic Book Cadillac Hotel and the Fort Shelby Hotel.[26] The city has hosted major events - the 2005 MLB All-Star Game, 2006 Super Bowl XL, 2006 World Series, WrestleMania 23 in 2007 and the NCAA Final Four in April 2009 - all of which prompted many improvements to the area.
The city's International Riverfront is a focus of much development which has complemented similar developments in Windsor, Ontario. In 2007, Detroit completed the first major portions of the River Walk, including miles of parks and fountains. New developments and revitalizations are a mainstay in the city's plan to enhance its economy through tourism.[27] Along the river, upscale condominiums are rising, such as Watermark Detroit. Some city limit signs, particularly on the Dearborn border say "Welcome to Detroit, The Renaissance City Founded 1701".[26] [28]
The 2004 opening of the Compuware Center gave downtown Detroit its first significant new office building in a decade. Significant landmarks such as the Fox Theatre, Detroit Opera House, and the Gem Theater have been restored and host concerts, musicals, and plays. Many downtown centers such as Greektown, Cobo Center and Campus Martius Park, as well as the Michigan State Fairgrounds on the northern border, draw patrons and host activities.
See, we're all wrong. Detroit is a thriving, beautiful city with no real issues facing it. If you thought different, you're wrong and if you edit the pages to reflect that, someone will come and revert/change your edits.
TL;DR: It looks like Detroit is paying people to alter its wikipedia pages to put a positive spin on its current and/or recent history.
