The Godfrey Hotel Debuts in Corktown

By Kathy Gibbons

The new Godfrey Hotel Detroit opened in August in Detroit’s oldest neighborhood. General Manager Aaron Black says the Corktown area is experiencing a resurgence in association with Ford’s rehabilitation of the city’s iconic Michigan Central train station building and campus. The Godfrey in Corktown is a new build with seven floors, 227 rooms, Hamilton’s restaurant, an indoor-outdoor rooftop lounge with a retractable glass ceiling and walls, a lobby bar, a 5,100-square-foot ballroom, and two meeting rooms with a combined 1,235 square feet.

“The Godfrey business model of combining upscale, contemporary lodging and exciting food and beverage offerings in memorable neighborhoods is a perfect fit for Corktown,” Black says. “Corktown has a strong identity among Greater Detroit residents who remember the Detroit Tigers playing home games at Tiger Stadium until 1999, and [its] more recent incarnation as a trendy retail/restaurant destination.” Godfrey’s boutique hotels operate in cities including Boston, Massachusetts; Chicago, Illinois; and Hollywood, California.
