The Top 4 Midwest Cities For A Luxe Break

If you are looking for a luxe city break in the Midwest then you have come to the right place. Check out our guide to the top four below. 


With a revitalized downtown area, a community feel and plenty of high-end places to stay Detroit is the ideal Midwest city for a luxe break. For accommodation, the impressive MGM Grand Detroit boasts not only an infinity pool but a casino and some delicious onsite dining options as well where you can enjoy meals such as Veal Oscar or 34-ounce prime tomahawk steak. 

There is plenty of culture to explore in the city as well including the Motown Museum, The Detroit Institute for the Arts and the lavished decorated Fox Theater. You can even head out onto Lake Michigan for a luxurious boat ride if you like. When Getmyboat ranked the best boating cities Detroit was in the top 10! It’s not hard to see why either as it hosts the beautiful Belle Isle, which is almost 1000 acres of stunning parkland, covered with verdant greenery, and foundations, making it the perfect destination for any Detroit boat ride. 


Next, if you are looking for luxury in the Midwest, Cleveland is a great option. Cleveland boasts one of the most sophisticated hotels in the entire Midwest, the gorgeous Ritz-Carlton. Expect sleek and opulent rooms decorated with a modern twist here as well as exceptional dining in the atmospheric  TURN Bar + Kitchen, or why not explore their private dining options too? 

Outside of your accommodation, there are plenty of high-end experiences to indulge in such as the Cleveland Orchestra at Severance Hall, the fabulous Cleveland Museum of Art, and the stunning and restful Cleveland Botanical Garden


Another top location for those looking for a high-end break in America’s Heartland is the city of Chicago. The nightlife is truly wonderful in this city so why not start your luxe stay with a visit to The Chicago Theatre to catch a show? Then you can go on to the nearby Terrace 16 for some refreshments while looking out across the city. 

The Langham Chicago Hotel is a great choice for those looking for accommodation with elevated style and service. Swim in their large indoor pool, or pop down to CHUAN SPA for a full body massage for some serious relaxation. 

Traverse City

One of the most luxurious things to do in Traverse City has to be the flying dress photoshoot where you can have your picture taken at one of the many scenic locations with a long romantic dress billowing in the wind. Then if all that model-style posing leaves you in need of refreshment why not head on over to Red Ginger for some Sushi fine dining? Be sure to try the miso soup and the lobster roll as they are beloved by patrons. 

For a high-end hotel, the coastal Baywatch Resort can be a great choice, especially as it not only comes with beautifully finished rooms but also with access to a private beach for guys.
