WorldHotels in Germany has added the Daxton Hotel in downtown Birmingham as part of the brand’s expansion throughout North America.

The hotel, located at 298 S Old Woodward Ave., at the corner of E. Brown Street, was created to offer “exceptional, memorable experiences” for guests through what officials call an intentional focus on art and design infused throughout the property, resulting in an “avant-garde urban escape in the city’s downtown.”

“There is tremendous opportunity to grow the WorldHotels brand in prime destinations for both leisure and business travel,” says said Ron Pohl, president of WorldHotels. “We are delighted to welcome Daxton Hotel to our prestigious Luxury collection. We are proud to offer exceptional travel experiences to our valued guests and Daxton Hotel perfectly embodies modern luxury.”

The Daxton Hotel is home to an extensive art collection of more than 400 original works by artists from 80 countries. Each of the property’s 151 accommodations come equipped with amenities, including Frette linens, Nespresso machines, and specially chosen contemporary artwork unique to each room.

Daxton Hotel is home to Madam, the 2023 HOUR Detroit Restaurant of the Year. The daily dining venue provides guests with a vegetable-forward seasonal dishes, which pair with the menu of cocktails or selections from the restaurant’s extensive wine list.

Additional food and beverage options on-site include Café Dax, a breakfast and lunch concept located in the hotel’s art-centric lobby, the Geode Bar & Lounge, where cocktails and light bites are served underneath a geodesic dome, and Daxton Delights, seasonal treats made by the in-house pastry team.

A fitness center offers a Peloton bike, a Lululemon Studio Mirror, and Life Fitness equipment. The property also features full-time access to a pantry on every floor, stocked with snacks, pops, and newspapers. In addition, the hotel offers several meetings and event spaces ideal for weddings, celebrations, and corporate events of all sizes.

“Daxton Hotel is a stunning hotel in one of Detroit’s most inviting suburbs and is an ideal addition to our growing WorldHotels portfolio in North America,” says Gregory Habeeb, chief development officer North America, WorldHotels. “This hotel exemplifies the authentic experiences and refined service and amenities that are synonymous with the WorldHotels Luxury collection.”

One of the newest additions to Birmingham’s downtown, The Daxton Hotel is a member of the city’s growing luxury landscape. The property is located alongside upscale dining and shopping, as well as a farmer’s market and burgeoning nightlife scene.

“We are excited to join the WorldHotels Luxury collection, which is known for its prestigious properties and outstanding service,” says Autumn Griffith, general manager of Daxton Hotel. “The WorldHotels brand aligns with our mission to redefine Daxton Hotel as cultural destination for modern travelers and locals alike.
