20 minutes to anything: Here is the center of Detroit

Greektown Casino-Hotel by Nate Reens

Maybe it’s a home game for the Detroit Lions, Tigers, Red Wings or Pistons.

Or perhaps a night on the town with friends?

How about a concert or Broadway show at the historic Fox Theatre and its next-door neighbor the Fillmore Detroit?

And let’s not forget live jazz clubs, comedy performances or other late-night entertainment.

Whatever brings you to Detroit, you’ll find the Greektown Casino-Hotel at the center of any stay-and-play visit.

Guests at the 400-room, 30-floor hotel have prime access to its exciting 100,000-square-foot gaming floor, a destination in and of itself, in addition to being less than a mile and a 20-minute walk – shorter with a cab or ride-sharing service – to many of Michigan’s best and biggest attractions.

Here’s a primer on what’s nearby:

  • Little Caesars Arena
  • Ford Field
  • Comerica Park
  • The historic Greektown neighborhood
  • Fox Theatre
  • The Fillmore Detroit
  • Campus Martius Park
  • Hart Plaza

Before heading out to an event, Greektown offers its own incredible entertainment and dining options. There are more than 2,500 slots and 60 table games over two floors of gaming activity. The playing floor, machines and dealers are routinely identified as the best in Detroit.

Sam Arabo, an executive casino host, recommends guests visit the hotel-casino’s restaurants during their stay. There is a wide diversity at Monroe Market, a 24-hour curated collection of culinary experiences in a setting similar to a street market. The market has six restaurants that serve everything from burgers and pizza to BBQ and southern-style fried chicken.

Meanwhile, Arabo said a visit to Prism, the property’s signature steakhouse, seafood and pasta fine-dining, is a must-stop.

“We’ve won several awards for our food selection, our wine selection,” Arabo said. “Everybody enjoys it.”

Greektown staff members excel at attending to guests needs and making them comfortable during their stay.

“Customer service is our biggest thing,” Arabo said. “If a guest is happy, my job is easy.”
