    My memory is I didn't have a problem with the arena itself, rather with the maintenance. I remember marginal rest rooms and trash that never seemed to be removed or cleaned.

    On the other hand, I met some wonderful people in downtown Detroit, enjoyed riding the public transit, and had a very good hotel. I remember it was very near New Year's and the new Mayor was being sworn in. My hotel played host to one of the glitzy parties. Everyone was dripping jewels and dressed to the nines. I remember schlepping through the lobby in our parkas and skating stuff, feeling very under-dressed.

    Yes, I have no need for it to be near an airport. I want it within driving distance from my house. 4 hours or less preferably.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.
