#2115808 Best hotel for wings games?

Posted by Xcheck16 on 13 February 2011 - 01:19 PM

My wife and I have stayed at Greektown a few times, I had no problems there and it is easy to get to and from the Joe.

Hey guys. Thanks for all the feedback (both in this thread and in private messages). With your help, we've settled on the Westin. Really appreciate the hospitality/help and absolutely cannot wait to get to Hockeytown! Now, I just need to find a way to convince people I'm focusing on my work between now and then!

Any other tips, suggestions, etc for a 30-something (ok..full disclosure, damn near 40) married couple in terms of things to do at the game....after the game...or just in general in the downtown area? we'll be there for about 2 1/2 days.

Also, does the Joe Louis Arena wings shop sell Konstantinov jerseys by chance? I've always wanted one and it would make it perfect if i could actually buy it *in* detroit at the joe. a little hokey probably...but I still think that would be cool. =) Thanks again guys!

Hi folks. =) Forum newbie but long-time wing nut here!

My wife and I will be celebrating our 5 year anniversary this month and we have decided to do so by fulfilling a long-time dream of mine, seeing a Wings game at the Joe. We live in Dallas, so we thought it would be fun to make the trip out for the stars/wings game on the 24th. Anyway, we've been researching nice hotels and it seems like our choices boil down to the Westin Book Cadillac and the Marriott at the Ren Center. Do any of the locals have a strong opinion one way or another on which of those two hotels would be the best choice? We won't be renting a car (since we don't have a permit to carry a weapon in other states...i kid i kid.). =)

Thanks in advance & can't even tell you how fired up we are to finally get to see a game at the Joe!

edit: It looks like the Atheneum is a good option as well.
