It’s All About the Classic Detroit Look

So what exactly makes the Shinola Hotel a great place to host your wedding? Well, for one thing, it’s located in downtown Detroit and has an industrial-modern design with that perfect blend of urban chic and rustic charm. The hotel is housed in numerous historic Detroit buildings combining an artsy view with a chic industrial aesthetic. The Shinola Hotel has been renovated into Detroit’s premier boutique hotel; its stylish décor mixes modern furnishings with vintage touches like original brickwork and restored plaster ceilings—all while staying true to its original architecture and character.

Soaring ceilings, arched windows, and artful furnishings provide you with the perfect setting to view the gorgeous Detroit skyline from nearly every vantage point within the hotel. Designed by Detroit locals, the hotel really encapsulates the ambiance of the city – perfect for weddings and visiting guests. While I have yet to shoot a wedding at this hotel, the photos and videos from other industry professionals speak volumes about the grandeur and elegance of this space.

An Elegant, Modern Environment

You’ll find the Shinola Hotel in Detroit to be a modern, chic space. The hotel’s open floor plan makes it easy to entertain guests and enjoy the evening together, whether in the bar, their room, or within one of the many entertaining/venue spaces, including the rooftop, the sunroom, and the ballroom. The sunroom is an ideal location for an intimate ceremony, and the grand ballroom is perfect for a large reception or other events, each radiating a unique ambiance fit for any wedding style.

Each room in the hotel is filled with stunning works of art that complement the vintage industrial-inspired design, further elevating your wedding day experience.

You’ll have a private event space to celebrate with up to 200 of your closest friends and family members. The space is customizable and can be set up in the way that works best for you and your group. You can choose between a sunroom or ballroom setting, depending on what suits your wedding style.

The venue offers beautiful views of Detroit from its rooftop bar. It also features an impressive selection of drinks and wine. You can grab a classic cocktail at the evening bar before or after your wedding festivities on a first-come, first-served basis or request bar service at your wedding from the hotel.
