Best Layover Ever: Detroit Metropolitan Airport
4 Things To Do in the DTW for the Best Layover Ever
Visit Plum Market [A36]
I didn’t have any previous knowledge of this Michigan grocery chain, but the airport store looked so bright and bustling from outside that I had to go in.
With a hot bar, artisan breads and fresh salads, groceries (that made my 14-hour flight to Tokyo MUCH more bearable), toiletries and even foodie gifts, this place was well worth the visit.
Give your pet some relief [Throughout Airport]
Now, maybe I’m behind the times, but I was tickled pink to find a place for pets to go tinkle situated right outside the human restrooms in this airport. The space was well-contained (and aroma-controlled). Even if you don’t have one of your own, watching the cute animals emerge from the space is bound to entertain you.
Walk off the plane & into bed [McNamara Terminal]
I’m not talking about accommodations outside DTW. You, my friend, can enter The Westin Detroit Metropolitan Airport Hotel from the McNamara Terminal. Going for as little as $217 per night, you can have a comfortable, convenient overnight layover without leaving your terminal at all. The hotel even has its own private security entrance/exit. I’ve never been one to look forward to a layover, but zaaaaaaam.
Take a pause in the Religious Reflection Room
[McNamara Terminal- 3rd Flr, N. Terminal- D16]
After leaving Atlanta a little frazzled and preparing to take a flight around the world, discovering the Religious Reflection Room was a gift from heaven. The space was a secluded and quiet interfaith area with prayer cloths and chairs and cushions that facilitated an awesome meditation space for me in solitude before a long trip.
Now THAT's the best layover ever! Let me know your favorite things to do in DTW or in another airport below.
