11. If along Plymouth road in Detroit, settle in Dearborn.
If you are in Auburn, it's an hours drive from Plymouth road and Dearborn area. Plenty of places up there, can hardly go wrong. I don't know it well.

But,

If in west Detroit, Dearborn is close, safe, and so pleasant the kids call it still-born. Especially west Dearborn. The Hyatt (older), Ritz (where the doorman refuses to be CEO for fear of the pay cut from losing his tips.). I'm not kidding. The Marriott Dearborn Inn (great high-priced food spot)(Too much for me).

Next level: The Courtyard on Hubbard Drive (all my friends and family like it.), then a Hampton, then a Fairlane something, but it is next to Andiamo's and Kiernan's steak house(a good place to hit).

Continuing: Two stone throws, the old Holiday Inn, now a Double Tree, and the old Residence Inn now I dunno. These in fenced areas since adjacent neighborhoods continue decades of decline.

Meanwhile,

Further south: Holiday Inn Express and a bunch of hotel-in-a-box varieties. Just a little too unnecessarily far for you, and not as restaurant populated.

There is a B&B in Dearborn, never looked for it. Bet it's nice and walking distance to some fun.

Arabic food is plentiful. The bakeries make a great lunch. New Yasmeen on Warren Avenue east of Chase Street. Google map and check the "street view" function. East Dearborn is closer to Chrysler, but is more Arabic than you might want to believe.

Ask your co-horts where to eat when you arrive. They'll know.

As to weekends: "The Henry Ford" google it, if you like historical ventures. Close is "Henry Ford Mansion" for a morning hike and a fun place to have lunch on the satellite campus of UofMichigan.

Downtown is the art museum and other spots nearby. Then greektown. There are brilliant night spots near downtown. You'll have to ask age appropriate persons.

Work will take most of your time. If you really need more, flag us again.
