REVIEW: D.Tour Spa at the Motor City Casino Hotel

Disclosure: I was invited by the Motor City Casino to the D.Tour Spa for complimentary services as part of a media blogger event. All opinions are my own.

I found a little piece of Heaven in Downtown Detroit at the D.Tour Spa...

Lately, I have found myself in need of some serious R&R.  Between work and family health challenges, I am feeling a little worn down and in need of a little pick-me-up.

So when Motor City Casino Hotel contacted me to see if I wanted to review their D.Tour Spa, I was totally elated.  Mimosas and massages make everything feel better in my book so I could not say "YES" fast enough to this experience.

I have been to the Motor City Casino Hotel for many events in years past, but I had never made the time to visit their spa. I drove the short 15 car ride from my home and parked for FREE in the Motor City Casino Hotel parking structure and then proceeded to the hotel entrance. After speaking with the guard, I was escorted to a special bank of elevators which took me to the lower level where the D.Tour Spa is located.

The spa takes up the entire lower floor of the hotel and it is huge with elegant furnishings and a relaxing vibe. The waiting room is a relaxing lounge with comfy seating including couches, chairs, and huge floor pillows. Guests can past the time by watching any of extensive list of cable channels on the huge flat panel TV.  I was invited as part of a group of local Detroit bloggers and we were treated to brunch with mimosas to past the time in between spa services.

The changing room decor continues the elegant spa theme with lockers faced with mahogany colored wood, each containing a wooden hanger and cubbies to house belongings. The lockers are secured by a digital locking system, just like hotel safes. Guests are provided with comfy robes and spa shoes to wear throughout the spa.

In between the lockers and the spa services area is a huge mirrored room with sinks, tons of towels, and all kinds of necessities including toothbrushes and toothpaste, lotions, hair dryers, curling irons, and shower caps. This spa has thought of everything to ensure their clients leave happy - and looking good.

The spa service rooms are quiet and peaceful with soothing music that plays throughout the treatments.  Each room is private with a door, unlike some spas that I have gone to where the treatment rooms are closed off using curtains.

In addition to the spa treatment rooms, the D.Tour Spa has other facilities including a stream room, dry sauna, and a huge heated whirlpool with ice towels for when you need to cool off.

After my 50 minute Swedish massage, Facial, Manicure, Pedicure, and a visit to the Whirlpool and the Dry Sauna, I was totally relaxed and felt like a new woman. And I loved that all this pampering was only a short drive from my house. I really felt like a had found a little piece of heaven in Downtown Detroit at the D.Tour Spa.

The D.Tour Spa at the Motor City Casino Hotel is open Sundays & Mondays 9am-5pm, Wednesdays & Thursdays 10am-9pm, and Fridays & Saturdays 9am-9pm.
