From Detroit Metropolitan Airport to the city, Commuter Express, (888) 854-6700, offers frequent service to various locations. Detroit isnt named Motor City for nothing --- public transport is limited and infrequent; if you fly into town it's best to rent a car via one of the many national chains with area outlets. Also, the metro area is not particularly pedestrian-friendly. You really need wheels.
Hotel rooms can be surprisingly expensive in Detroit due to a rapid growth in business travel. Try to book well in advance to avoid prices of upwards of $100 for a moderate business classroom.
