The Whitney

4421 Woodward Avenue
Detroit, MI

Built for lumber baron David Whitney Jr. who constructed the home in 1894. Whitney employed the services of Detroit architect Gordon W. Lloyd who designed the exterior in Romanesque style and utilized a rare variety of pink granite, giving the outside of the house a rose hue. Visitors enter through the stunning Great Hall with a grand staircase inviting them to explore the rest of the 21,000 square foot, 52-room mansion. In 1986, The Whitney became an upscale restaurant also featuring bar and lounge areas on the third floor (see the Experience Detroit Restaurants page). Make a reservation for dinner, relax with a drink and some music in the lounge, or simply drop in and spend some time exploring this Detroit gem.
