One of the great downtown Detroit buildings that many thought wouldn’t make it is set to reopen this week as a new hotel. After an extensive renovation, a representative from the hotel tells Curbed that The Siren Hotel will have a soft opening this weekend, possibly March 16, at the Wurlitzer Building.
The hotel will have 106 guest rooms and many retail and restaurant spaces. In this initial soft opening, both Populace Coffee and Candy Bar will also open. Albena should open in April. Eater has confirmed that Kate Williams will also lead a new restaurant in the hotel later this year.
We visited last summer as renovations started to pick up.
ASH NYC bought the Wurlitzer Building in 2015; the 1926 building had been vacant since 1982. Designed by Robert Finn, the Wurlitzer Building housed beautiful music for decades. Vacated for good in 1982, the building suffered from decay and neglect for decades, with chunks of the building literally falling off at times, prompting a famous sign that sat next to the building for years.
After the limited preview last summer, the hotel intended on opening late last year. For months, we’ve heard that it will be open “soon,” with teasers on Instagram nearly every day.
