The Henry, Autograph Collection Hotel
Named in honor of Mr. Ford, The Henry, a Dearborn landmark, turns on the "va-va-vroom" from the moment guests enter the elegant lobby adorned with vibrant contemporary art. Custom furnishings such as the Henry Bed, made in Michigan exclusively by Lady Americana, adorn the 293 guest rooms, while the brasserie TRIA prepares creative American cuisine. This modern luxury hotel is also in close proximity to a number of Motor City attractions, such as the Ford Motor Company, the Henry Ford Museum, the Automotive Hall of Fame, the Detroit Institute of Arts, and the Michigan Science Center.

The Flint Institute of Arts
The Flint Institute of Arts (aka the FIA) is the second largest art museum in Michigan and one of the largest museum art schools in the nation. For more than 85 years, the FIA has been responsible for acquiring, protecting and presenting a collection of art and artifacts spanning continents and 5,000 years. The world renowned collection, which now exceeds 8,000 objects, is significant for its depth of important European and American paintings and sculptures, 15th century to the present, and its extensive holdings of decorative and applied arts including important ethnographic study collections dating back five millennia.
