We usually spend the night before our trip at a hotel in Minneapolis. This time, we were able to save a little money by leaving a day early from a small commuter airport near home - with an overnight stay in Detroit. We've booked a room at the Westin, which is in the airport terminal. For anyone who has stayed there - a few questions:

Do you have to exit the airport to enter the hotel? How easy is it to go back through security?
Any restaurants/ food options available nearby? We will arrive at 10:00 PM
Other hotel reviews? Interesting information to share?

I love this option - we'll be on the beach at CSA by noon!
