Detroit's Book Tower to feature extended stay hotel

George Sell George Sell Uploaded 27 August 2021


US: The Book Tower, one of the most iconic buildings in Downtown Detroit is being redeveloped to include the city’s first extended stay hotel.

Developer Bedrock acquired the property in 2015, and is converting it to the ROOST Apartment Hotel. It will feature 118 studio, one- and two-bedroom extended stay apartments across four floors of redevelopment. The units will offer apartment living, with full-sized kitchens, but also include hotel-style amenities.

The new ROOST at Book Tower will be operated by Philadelphia-based hospitality company Method Co., which will also operate multiple dining options at Book Tower, including two restaurants, a lobby bar/lounge and bakery opening at a later date.

The Book Tower is set to reopen in late 2022 with mixed-use space, including retail, office and residential space.

“As Detroit continues to grow as a place where people want to live, work and play, the ROOST Apartment Hotel will offer a completely new hospitality option for those who may be relocating to the City, but also for those who just want to enjoy a few nights downtown,” said Kofi Bonner, CEO of Bedrock. “As a recent transplant to the City of Detroit myself, I recognize first-hand how important it is to feel at home in a new place and I am excited for all those who will experience their first taste of downtown living at ROOST in one of Detroit’s historic architectural icons.”
