The Whittier hotel, Detroit

I was in Texas visiting family when I thought it would be a good idea to go on a road trip. So I hired a Jeep Wrangler and drove up to Detroit to check out the Urbex scene and meet up with some folks I knew on Facebook.

To Detroit is a wonderful place maybe not your traditional holiday location but quite the eye opener!

Over the years, the luxury hotel played host to luminaries such as Horace Dodge, Eleanor Roosevelt, Mae West, Frank Sinatra and The Beatles. During Prohibition, the hotel’s convenient access to the Detroit River and Canada made it popular with underworld types, including the Purple Gang
