The Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW) is 20 miles from downtown Detroit and the Westin Hotel. Luxury Sedans and Taxis are available 24/7 from each terminal’s Ground Transportation Center, and no advanced reservation is required. (While public buses also service the airport and downtown, the bus may take well over an hour.) Attendees may also reserve a Skoot shuttle from the airport to the hotel, starting at $20 each way.

Detroit's Amtrak station is 4 miles from the Westin Hotel, with frequent trains from Toronto and other cities in the region. Greyhound buses arrive less than 1 mile from the Westin Hotel and are available from Toledo, Cleveland, and many other cities.

Please note: a valid passport is required for travel between the U.S. and Canada.

Ground Transportation

All Institute sessions will be held at The Carr Center, 0.4 miles from the Westin Hotel. If walking is prohibitive, or you have other concerns about accessibility, please contact us and we will be happy to make other transportation arrangements for you.

If you are exploring on your own, there are many sights within close walking distance of the Westin Hotel. In addition, there is a cab stand in front of the hotel.
