I have a comfortable modern room available in the Corktown neighborhood. Its a private room with a queen size bed and a shared bathroom.
This neighborhood was originally settled by Irish immigrants and is just west of downtown (center of downtown is about a mile from my place). Its a working class neighborhood that has some interesting urban charm.
I love this city and its my goal to have visitors experience and enjoy as many of its assets as possible. I'm always happy to tell you some of the interesting things going on in town. I'm close to every freeway so you can easily get around the region. I'm about a 25 minute drive from the airport. Sadly, we don't have a real good public transportation system, so be prepared for that. If possible, I would recommend bringing a bike because in many ways Detroit is an ideal biking city.
You are welcome to use the kitchen and wifi is available for your laptop. There is AC as well. I guess I should also mention that I don't smoke and I don't allow smoking in the house.
Todd was a wonderful host and the room was very comfortable. My husband and I loved the neighborhood. He gave us lots of great recommendations. I am now enamored with Detroit and excited to come back soon.
Todd war ein überaus engagierter und interessierter Gastgeber. Durch ihn habe ich Detroit wirklich aus Sicht eines Detroiters kennengelernt: die neuesten Cafés und Restaurants, die ungewöhnlichsten Ecken der Stadt. Die Lage war ideal, man kann die Innenstadt und Corktown zu Fuß entdecken – und das will in einer amerikanischen Stadt wirklich was heißen. Das Zimmer überaus komfortabel, vollkommen ruhig und hell. Ich wär gerne länger geblieben und werde das nächste Mal wieder bei Todd übernachten, keine Frage.
Todd is a great host--I couldn't recommend staying with him more strongly! I had possibly the best Airbnb experience here in Detroit: a very comfortable bed, a bike to explore the city, and a record player to enjoy the fruits of my crate digging. Todd knows the city very well and was proactive in recommending me places to get coffee, etc.
Todd was also extremely responsive when I had questions (and, most importantly, when I locked myself out of the house... >_ ).
Nous avons passé deux jours excellents chez Todd. La maison est très propre et très jolie. Todd nous a donné son avis très intéressant sur Detroit, il a eu la gentillesse de nous permettre de faire une lessive chez lui. Je recommande vivement !
The room was very clean and pleasant, as was the bathroom/shower. The location was convenient for me in terms of being able to walk to Corktown in 15 minutes, and midtown in 20ish or so. Todd was responsive so it was easy to make an unexpected last minute change.
Todd was an excellent host. He helped me with heavy luggage et al when there was ice on the sidewalk. The room was exactly as described - comfortable, clean and welcoming. Todd is a real Detroit booster, and I appreciated his frank assessment of Detroit's renewal, and some of the obstacles the city faces. His handsome house is in a great area which is convenient to many things in Detroit, and is highly recommended.
Extremely comfortable room and wonderful host. Todd gave great advice about area eats and was flexible and helpful. Absolutely no complaints about the room, host or location and would recommend to anyone visiting Detroit.
Not sure what to write here. I'm an urban forester and I love living in the city of Detroit. I also love to travel and meet interesting people and experience new cultures. Airbnb has been a great experience of meeting new and interesting people without ever leaving my house! Come visit me and lets chat about the world.
