We are following all recommended guidelines with the goal of keeping our guests safe, while also continuing to play our part in the more than $400 million contributed to the state economy by the gaming industry.

With more than 5,000,000 annual visitors and over 2,600 employees, MotorCity Casino Hotel is key to the economic livelihood of our city. By taking tremendous care to follow all CDC guidelines as well as recommendations from local, state and federal health agencies and trade associations on best practices, we can continue to provide this economic stability as well as meet the needs of our guests.

These practices included intensified cleaning/disinfecting of highly trafficked surfaces and common areas as well as creating ten distinct areas in which we can limit capacity to 250 people or fewer in a designated area at one time, per the Governor’s Executive Order.
