The Westin Book Cadillac Detroit, located at Michigan and Washington boulevards, is undergoing a $20-million renovation that will be completed in early summer 2023.
The project entails a new, contemporary design of the hotel’s 453 guest rooms and suites, 36,000 square feet of meeting and banquet space, and all public spaces within the property, in addition to introducing a new dining experience this summer.
Chicago-based Gettys Group is overseeing the transformation. The hotel remains open and operational throughout the renovation period.
“We’re extremely excited about the renovation plan,” says Debra Schultz, general manager of The Westin Book Cadillac. “When we emerge from our renovation, we look forward to amplifying (our) familiar experience with a rejuvenated one that invites guests to create new, inspiring memories.”
The renovation includes the conversion of 133 Double Double guest rooms to 133 Double Double Queen rooms, the inclusion of pull-out sofa beds in 32 executive suites, a conversion of the majority of guest bathrooms with tubs to walk-in showers with the water-saving Heavenly Rainhead and a dual-function hand-shower, plus the addition of illuminated vanity mirrors, along with the redesign of two 1,500-square-foot luxury suites.
In addition, Sullivan’s Steakhouse, which offers classic American cuisine, has signed a lease for the first floor of the Westin Book Cadillac Detroit.
The 8,500-square-foot restaurant, which will occupy the space that was Roast, is scheduled to open in mid-2023 and include an outdoor patio, according to the hotel’s owner, Oxford Capital Group. It joins Starbucks Reserve on the first floor and a yet-to-be-named restaurant that will take the space of the former 24 Grille, which spans 5,000 square feet.
