Our readers nominated this casino hotel as the Detroit area’s best hotel spa.  We agreed!

D.Tour Spa offers an Spa Experience in an upscale, 13,000-square-foot facility featuring dedicated relaxation lounges, thermal whirlpools, large steam rooms, dry saunas and rain shower facilities.  Plentiful appointments were available thanks to 10 private treatment rooms, and the menu includes specialized selection of massage and body treatments.  Don your spa robe and slippers, stow your belongings in the locker room, and prepare to spend the day being rejuvenated from the stress of city life.


I had an incredible spa day at D.Tour, with my Mother.   We made a day of it and were treated like royalty.  I especially appreciated the quiet areas with refreshments and reading materials while we waited for each other to finish treatments, and, at the end of the day, we had everything we wanted from a shower room to get ready for dinner, to a vanity area stocked with toothbrushes, mouthwash, even curling irons and hair clips for our hair.  What a delight.

Our readers nominated this downtown location of the Woodhouse Day Spas brand as the Detroit area’s best day spa in the city of Detroit.  We agreed!

This location is in the heart of downtown Detroit in the Campus Martious area, and boasts an extensive menu of services from signature facials, to body treatments to massage, nail care, and more.

Guests enjoy the top notch and amenities that come with any service at Woodhouse, including tea, wine, Mimosas, water, and more, along with comfortable robes and slippers and well outfitted changing areas and lounges.   Massage tables are pre-warmed for your comfort and have fresh, quality linens for every guest.  Spa Parties are available, as are packages for couples.

I had an incredible spa day, here. It’s really easy to forget you’re still in downtown Detroit, because this is a little oasis of calm. I’ve been to many Woodhouse Locations and the exemplary service is beautifully carried out here, more so than other day spas in this area.

I had the Volcanic Stone Massage. I’m usually a bit of a skeptic about hot stone therapies.  I get them because I don’t like a lot of finger digging, and it’s warm and nice but seldom impressive. I had some shoulder and neck pain, however, from a volleyball game and after this experience, the warmed and smoothed stones were gliding over my problem areas, giving me deep warmth and pain relief unlike others I’ve had. It’s all about the expert placement and knowing how best to use them, and my therapist truly did.

Our readers nominated Margot’s European Day Spa as the Detroit area’s best spa for expert skincare and esthetics.  We agreed!  Margot’s European Day Spa marked its 35th anniversary in 2015, including a decade at its current location. Founder and owner Margot Koehler began her esthetics career in her hometown of Heidelberg, Germany. She also has certifications in France, Great Britain, Japan and the United States.  Margot’s also offers a complete menu of body care, massage, and nail care.

I had an excellent facial from Margot’s European Day Spa and my consultation, service, and follow-on care proved the adage ‘you get what you pay for.’    I did pay slightly more for this facial than at other locations in the area, however, this is the skincare regimen I’ll repeat.  I paid for the ambiance (nice waiting area, showers, locker room and complimentary tea), the education and experience of an aesthetician who has more than a quarter century of experience, and, the results.    My face has never looked better and as a public speaker, that’s worth every penny to me.”

Our readers nominated and voted for Om Day Spa for its expert massage and body treatments, especially the Vichy shower and body scrubs.   The spa’s philosophy embraces the “technology of the West with the soothing miracles of the East.”  Our Secret Spa Reviewer, who visited all of our nominees in 2014, 2015, and 2016, agreed and chose Om Day Spa as offering the best full body treatments.

I had the wonderful Lori from Om Day Spa for a Thai full body scrub and mask and Vichy Shower.   It was memorable.  Before my services I toured the beautifully designed, modern and clean spa and enjoyed complimentary refreshments and ice cold spa water.  While the waiting area is small and not terribly private, it was calm with amenities making my short wait relaxing and enjoyable.

I was thoroughly delighted with the full body exfoliation to take care of my somewhat ashy post-summer skin, the cooling and moisturizing mask, and my shyness was never an issue.  I was draped and moved in such a way that I didn’t feel self conscious. Best of all, the full body Vichy shower was just what the doctor ordered.  Massage can sometimes be painful for me, but with this, it’s like getting a full body water massage under a waterfall, but it wasn’t messy like others I had in the area (with water filling my ears!); the shower was controlled at all times and Lori made sure every bit of product was cleanly and efficiently rinsed.  I felt like a million dollars.
