However, though an attempt has been made to get operations back on the rail, it will not be business as usual initially, but in phases only.
Here is the timetable for MotorCity Casino Hotel spas, restaurants, hotels, bars, and more.
- Restaurants – Select restaurants will open but will follow the restrictions still in force in Michigan. Little Caesars will open for takeaway only on December 23, as will Grand River Deli Burgers. But Sweet Ride, Assembly Line Buffet, The Lodge Diner, and the Signature Restaurant will remain closed.
- Bars – MotorCity Casino Hotel Bars will be temporarily closed. The same goes for Pit Stop.
- Hotel – The Hotel will start functioning from December 26 with strict safety protocols in place as per orders of the State for hotels in Michigan. Only one party can use an elevator, and enhanced measures are in place for cleaning common points like elevator buttons, doorknobs, and towels. Decorative bedding in all rooms has been removed, and room keys will be sanitized before being issued to another guest. Most critically, 6-foot spacing markers have been put on the floors so that guests can maintain social distancing. No concerts or shows are permitted, but meetings and banquets will be allowed as per the State’s guidelines.
It has been a long time since March 13, 2020, when restrictions were first implemented, followed by a complete shutdown on March 16, 2020.
