When Built: Constructed in 1936, originally as a door factory. The Chandelier Room was used as a production space and the Edison Room as a showroom. 

Design Style: Urban industrial artistry 

Highlights: Rotating moss wall, brick exterior, exposed rafters, polished cement floors, large factory-style windows and surrounding arts district 

Event Spaces: 

  • Chandelier Room: Named for the chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, this 3,000-square-foot space accommodates up to 300 for a standing cocktail reception or 200 guests for a seated dinner and has an in-house A/V system. 
  • Edison Room: The Edison Room has glass ceilings with classic Edison bulb-style lighting and 10-foot-tall, moss-covered rotating walls that add natural inspiration to the 2,600-square-foot space. The permanent waterfall-bar is truly unique, and the layout can fit 200 guests standing and 120 guests seated for a meal.

The time is right; the stage is set. Groups are ready to meet face to face again, and the four-star luxury hotel MGM Grand Detroit is ready to welcome you back.

According to MPI’s report “Spring 2021 Meetings Outlook,” three-quarters of meeting professionals predict a face-to-face event this calendar year. And that definitely rings true for Lisa Williams, executive director of sales for the hotel.

Just like the rest of the world, the hospitality and travel industries slammed to a halt when the pandemic hit last March. Some sectors within them had built-in solutions to focus on, such as hotels limiting capacities and restaurants focusing on takeout and delivery.
