The Whitney mentioned in the Cincinnati Enquirer

Excerpts from the article that first ran Sunday February 22nd:

Detroit as a romantic destination is not as outrageous as you might think.

"Few people realize that Detroit has the second largest theater district in the country with over 13,000 theater seats in just a two-block radius," said Jeanette Pierce of Inside Detroit Tours. "There are over 120 bars and restaurants within the one-square mile of downtown and with a crime rate now 37 percent less than the national average, we feel very comfortable offering pub crawl tours, as well as historic walking and biking tours. "

For a truly romantic lunch or dinner, The Whitney is the height of elegance. The meticulously restored 52-room mansion of lumber baron, David Whitney Jr. has 20 fireplaces, 218 windows including some in original Tiffany stained-glass, period lighting and furnishings. As a merchant of lumber from Michigan forests and exotic foreign locations, he showcased the woods in exquisitely beautiful woodwork found through his mansion. "
