The Shinola Hotel Is Built in Detroit by Locals Shinola and Bedrock
Shinola Hotel is a boutique hotel located in Detroit, Michigan, built by Shinola and Bedrock. The property boasts 129 rooms and includes four food and beverage concepts from award-winning chef, Andrew Carmellini. The hotel’s hyper-local design is evident everywhere, from ceramic wall tiles and millwork made by local merchants to mini bars stocked with local goods and Detroit-designed wallpaper.
Aiming to be a gathering place for both residents of Detroit and tourists, the main living room space offers a warm and inviting setting for a meeting over lunch, drinks, or a late-night snack. The residential-style guest rooms and suites have hardwood floors and comfortable mid-century contemporary furnishings. Loft-style windows offer abundant natural light while earthy tones create a relaxing ambience.
The hotel features an award-winning restaurant, San Morello, serving authentic wood-fired cuisine, house-made pastas, and pizzas crafted using local, seasonal ingredients. The floor is made of stone and has a checkerboard pattern in Rojo Alicante and Crema Ella with inset oak and bronze accents.
