Best news I've received all day: Maria Stella's hard work getting hotel deals for the Blowout has paid off. The lowdown is as follows (per Maria Stella):
Holiday Inn Express on Michigan and Washington (Detroit) are going to block off rooms for anyone who wants to stay there for Blowout AND they are going to offer a complimentary shuttle to Blowout. They can't offer the shuttle on the way back because it's too late, but having all their transportation needs for the whole night taken care of except the ride home; in most large cities I feel like that is unheard of!
The block rate is $99 and includes hot continental breakfast the next morning, a pool, workout facilities, business/computer access, free Wi-fi, etc.
