Hotel St. Regis Detroit

Last Wednesday, I had the pleasure of having lunch at the Hotel St. Regis in a restaurant called La Musiq and I must say the food was good. However the Hotel St. Regis is a diamond or a gold mine within the city of Detroit because it has so many attractions and on Thursday it has a live jazz concert from 5p.m.-9p.m. with drink specials within the restaurant. However with La Musiq within the St. Regis and the rooms of the St. Regis as well as the gorgeous, radiant and beautiful woman on staff. This is a premiere hotel with tons to offer to visitors and guests who patron the Hotel St. Regis . Now don't take my word for me but here are a couple of other things that the Hotel St. Regis website says about itself. (http://www.hotelstregisdetroit.com/)

Welcome to one of southeast Michigan's top hotels. In fact, few Detroit hotels can rightfully boast of a history as rich as ours. The Hotel St. Regis has played host to such diverse and notable travelers as Martin Luther King and Mick Jagger. Today that heritage of unequaled hospitality, comfort and privacy is newly burnished. Located in Detroit's New Center area, the Hotel is surrounded by prominent buildings including the Albert Kahn-designed Fisher Building, home of the Fisher Theatre; Cadillac Place, home to State of Michigan government offices; and the world-class medical facilities at Henry Ford Hospital.

Hotel St. Regis is just minutes from all the major downtown attractions including sports stadiums, casinos, COBO Convention Center, museums, theatres, nightlife and the busiest international border crossing for commerce in the world—to Canada.

125 stylish guestrooms and suites are located on five floors. Each room has been newly remodeled and features inviting color schemes, marble vanities and superior bedding.

Our signature restaurant, La Musique, a Cajun restaurant, serves an inspired menu in a hip and elegant room that features stage costumes and memorabilia from past Motown hit makers. The adjacent Lounge is a perfect place for cocktails and entertainment.

Through an exclusive arrangement, guests of Hotel St. Regis may also dine at some of Detroit's top restaurants and charge the meal to their room. With prior arrangement, you can dine at Sweet Georgia Brown, Seldom Blues, The Woodward Restaurant and Grill, The Cuisine Restaurant and Detroit Breakfast House.

Need a car? Our exclusive Stay and Drive program with Enterprise Car Rental saves our guests the hassle of charging their credit card countless times while traveling.

To make your stay at Hotel St. Regis memorable and complete, we offer concierge service, a library and business center as well as complimentary membership to a full-service fitness center just one block away. Dry cleaning services and full-service car wash are always available. Guests can also take advantage of complimentary high-speed wireless Internet service in throughout the hotel.

The Hotel is just three miles north of the Renaissance Center on the Detroit River, home to General Motors’ global headquarters, which is also Detroit's tallest building. Also nearby are the city's entertainment districts, sports stadiums and convention center. This is where you'll find Comerica Park, home of the Detroit Tigers; Ford Field, home of the Detroit Lions; Joe Louis Arena, home of the Detroit Red Wings; plus three casinos—the MGM Grand, the MotorCity and Greektown casinos—and COBO Convention Center. Our Chief Concierge can secure the best available seating to any major sporting or musical event in the city.

Our immediate neighbors include a nationally renowned healthcare institute, Henry Ford Hospital, and all major state government offices are located across the street in Cadillac Place. We're connected by skywalk to the Fisher Theatre, Detroit's premier theatre for touring Broadway productions. Just a few blocks west of the hotel is where Motown was born. Visit Hitsville USA and the Motown Museum to see where it all began for such stars as Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and so many others.

The University Cultural District—Located just ½ mile from the Hotel is where you can tour world-famous institutions all within walking distance of one another including the Detroit Institute of Arts—the nation’s fifth-largest fine arts museum, The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History—the largest of its kind in the world, the Detroit Historical Museum and the New Detroit Science Center.

Oh, make you wanna holler
The way they do my life
Make me wanna holler
The way they do my life
This ain't livin', This ain't livin'
No, no baby, this ain't livin'
No, no, no

Inflation no chance
To increase finance
Bills pile up sky high
Send that boy off to die

Oh, make me wanna holler
The way they do my life
Make me wanna holler
The way they do my life

Dah, dah, dah
Dah, dah, dah

Hang ups, let downs
Bad breaks, set backs
Natural fact is
I can't pay my taxes

Oh, make me wanna holler
And throw up both my hands
Yea, it makes me wanna holler
And throw up both my hands

Crime is increasingTrigger happy policing
Panic is spreading
God knows where we're heading
Oh, make me wanna holler
They don't understand

Dah, dah, dah
Dah, dah, dah
Dah, dah, dah

Mother, motherEverybody thinks we're wrong
Who are they to judge us
Simply cause we wear our hair long
