Best Casinos in Detroit Michigan

by Trudy

Visitor Couples Getaway Idea: Our favorite thing to do for a fun weekend getaway is to head to Detroit and hit the casinos!

There are only a few casinos located in Detroit, but they are large casinos that offer all the games you could possibly desire on a short vacation. If you are traveling on a budget, you should consider staying at a hotel in the downtown area rather than in a casino hotel.

The casino hotels are pure luxury, but they are also quite expensive. You should be able to walk to the casinos from other hotels, or you can stay in a casino tower and really treat yourself to something special. Do some research on pricing and then decide the best arrangement for your trip.

If you don't plan to spend all your time gambling and will be mostly locked in the room with your someone special, then you may only need to scout out the best casino for your needs. All three have high class restaurants plus some other amusements on site, so you may not need to leave the grounds at all.

If you want to gamble, but also want to enjoy other amusements in Detroit, decide on your day trips ahead of time. This way, you can select the casino that is located closest to these other attractions. This gives you access to gambling and fine dining opportunities while making it easy to slip off grounds and enjoy other things in the city.

All of these Detroit casinos have undergone substantial renovations and expansions in recent years. They each offer large gaming rooms which include everything from poker to slots. The differences may come down to pricing and the availability of rooms when you plan to visit.

To get you started, here is a quick list of the casinos located in Detroit, Michigan:

Motor City Casino
2901 Grand River Avenue

Greektown Casino
555 E. Lafayette Blvd.

MGM Grand Casino
777 Third Street
