Former Ritz-Carlton Hotel Gets New Historic Name
In April I mentioned that Michigan was losing its only Ritz-Carlton hotel. The hotel known as the Ritz-Carlton Dearborn will now become The Henry as of June 3, and will be part of Marriott International's Autograph Collection of independent hotels. The Detroit Free Press reports that most of the hotel's empoyees will be keeping their jobs. The Henry joins eight other hotels in the new collection of upscale hotels with "distinctive personalities." The hotel takes its name from Henry Ford and is conveniently located near the Henry Ford museum. The new owners are planning a seamless transition.
