Motor City's relaxing retreat

10 Treatment Rooms

If a day of luxury is on the docket for your time in Detroit, a visit to D.Tour Spa awaits. More than 13,000 square feet of pampering is nestled inside the MotorCity Casino Hotel, offering you a respite from the every day and a low-key alternative to the hotel’s high-energy casino floor. A get-back-to-basics kind of relaxation has come to be synonymous with a visit to D.Tour Spa.

The Amenities

Ten treatment rooms provide the backdrop to the specialized massage and body treatments for which D.Tour is known. Built into the massage tables are SO Sound speakers that give you a chance not only to hear the music as you relax, but to feel it. One treatment in particular lends itself to this technology: the MotorCity Music Massage, which features high-tech and high-touch therapy. You literally will feel the crescendo of the music as you are transported to a deeper level of relaxation.

For couples looking to relax à deux, the Detroit spa offers a two-room couples suite. Enjoy a reflexology or scalp treatment followed by a private soak together in an illuminated hydrotherapy tub. Follow your soak with a MotorCity Mud application and a rinse in the private D.Tour Rain Room. Side-by-side MotorCity Music massages are a popular way to cap off this day of urban luxury with someone special.

The spa also features separate men’s and women’s lounges, eucalyptus steam rooms, dry saunas, 18-person thermal whirlpools and rain shower facilities. You can take in a spa lunch between treatments or nosh on complimentary granola bars and fresh fruit and sip tea throughout your spa stay.

Comfy Oka-B spa slippers are provided upon entry to the spa as is a luxurious Chadsworth and Haig doeskin robe. All necessary accouterments — razor, shaving cream, lotion, deodorant and hairspray — for post-treatment primping are available in showers and at every vanity.

The Treatments

Spend part of the day or the entire day indulging in a wide range of treatments. Spa signatures include, of course, the MotorCity Music Massage but an array of other rubdowns are available, including deep-tissue and hot-stone options, the latter of which includes Swedish massage techniques paired with warm, smooth basalt stones to ease muscle tension. 

Athletic guests may enjoy the D. Sport Massage, designed to loosen the joints and muscles through use of a rare Mountain Arnica extract blended with herbal oils to promote blood flow to the joints and muscles.

Select from a range of body wraps, including the Pink Cadillac, during which rose, geranium and rosewood are applied with a full-body exfoliation followed by a remineralizing clay application. While relaxing in a cocoon wrap, you will receive a facial massage. Then your therapist rounds out the service with an application of Pink Cadillac Shea Butter Cream.

D.Tour’s signature nonsurgical facelift facial uses micro-current technology to reposition muscles for a toned look visible after only one treatment. The Detroit spa also features a range of waxing services, manicures and pedicures.

The Gym

The D.Tour Spa Fitness Center is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week to MotorCity Casino Hotel guests and features Precore cardio, resistance and free weight equipment. Individual flat-screen televisions are mounted on cardio equipment for your entertainment and heart-rate monitoring. Four big-screen plasma televisions stream news and other programs.

Complimentary bottled water and disposable earbuds are available for fitness center visitors as are lockers to stow personal items. For a hydrating boost, opt for the cucumber- and fruit-infused water available in the D.Tour Spa.
