General Information:

This location was built as a pretty standard Holiday Inn in the 60's but added a tower with a revolving restaurant on top in 1975. I worked here as a bellboy/room service for a few months back in my high school days. The tips were good and they gave you a free basic lunch from the kitchen in those days. It was fun because you could roam the joint and nobody really knew where you were.

This location was known for the "Red Wing Lounge" which used to have hockey players hanging out quite often. Someone in the Abel family (I think it was Sid's son who managed the place) had married one of the Howe's (Gordie's family) as I recall. So, it became a gathering place for Red Wing Hockey royalty.

I used to change the letters on the original sign which is probably the most iconic ever in the lodging industry. Sadly, none of those marquee signs are still standing. This location eventually went under as a Holiday Inn and numerous other owners have had it over the years. The restaurant no longer revolves. The last time I was over that way the place was still standing but no indication remains of the Holiday Inn chain. The mentions in the papers end around 2009.

As of 2023 this location is operating as Radisson Hotel Southfield-Detroit. It appears the Radisson folks dumped some major money into the hotel. Good on them as the wrecking ball was calling a few years earlier LOL.
