The Sheraton Detroit Metro Airport Hotel is located on Merriman Road, the front gate to the Detroit Metro Airport (DTW). The former 359-key Crowne Plaza Hotel was acquired on April 1, 2011 by a Minneapolis-based equity fund as part of a repositioning strategy.

The 11-story hotel was rebranded and welcomed its guest as a Sheraton hotel within 35 days on May 5, 2012. The complete renovation of all guest rooms and public spaces was completed October 2011.

The heart of the lobby is the Link@Sheraton(R) experienced with Microsoft®” the brand’s signature social hub providing travelers with the opportunity to stay connected with instant access to information and technology for work, leisure and social networking. The hotel’s stylish and comfortable guest rooms are equipped with an oversized work desk, custom-designed ergonomic chair, high-speed Internet, LCD flat panel television, and the all-white Sheraton Sweet Sleeper® bed, designed to meet AAA’s Five Diamond Award® criteria.

Ideal for business meetings and social functions of all sizes, Sheraton Detroit Metro Airport Hotel offers nearly 12,000 square feet of flexible meeting space and the latest in meetings technology. Additional amenities include a large indoor pool and full-service restaurant. The newly created 1,800 sq. ft. fitness facility features the brand’s revolutionary health and fitness program, Sheraton Fitness, Programmed by Core Performance, designed exclusively for Sheraton guests.

Wischermann Partners completed a thorough due diligence analysis within 60 days. The closing took place within weeks after all conditional clauses had been removed. Wischermann Partners was project managing the multi-million dollar renovation while operating the hotel, minimizing impact to guest experience.
