Thanks to Traveling Mom I attended a travel and lifestyle event at the DoubleTree Suites Fort Shelby hotel in downtown Detroit. You know how much I love Detroit so when other people feel the same way as me, it is a match made in heaven.
Since I live in the suburbs of Detroit, it is a rarity that I spend any time in a Detroit hotel. However, I should disclose that my day job is in the hospitality field and as such I am a bit of a hotel snob. Yes, it’s true I have high standards when it comes to hotels and traveling in general. The Double Tree Suites Fort Shelby hotel can easily please the most picky of travelers. It is a restored historic high-rise hotel in the heart of downtown Detroit. With all suites and a recently completed renovation, this is a hotel that will give you not just a place to stay but an experience to remember.
You may have heard that Detroit has become the perfect destination for foodies and the DoubleTree does not disappoint the taste buds. Check out this amazing lunch that we were served in their ballroom during the event!
We were even treated to a food demonstration courtesy of the chef at the DoubleTree Suites Fort Shelby and Daym Drops a well-known YouTube Food Titan. He’s great by the way, so you should check him out if you haven’t heard of him. He has a larger than life personality that will cause you to binge watch all of his videos. You are welcome.
We got to hear from some fabulous speakers from Traveling Mom. Daym Drops also spoke. I get a lot of motivation from people who speak about things that they are passionate about. The enthusiasm is contagious and I think it is safe to say that we all left the event feeling determined to pursue our dreams and to share all of the great things about Detroit. It was a great event and I was happy to get to play a small part in it.
