State and City of Detroit officials have approved $6.1 million in economic development incentives to turn a 13-story residential hotel in downtown Detroit Michigan that recently housed lower and moderate-income tenants into an upscale Hilton hotel. The development group, Downtown Hospitality Detroit LLC, is planning a $50-million renovation of the old Park Avenue House, 2305 Park Ave., to turn it into a 172-room Tapestry Collection by Hilton hotel featuring a first-floor restaurant and a cafe. The building would be renamed Royal Palm Hotel, which was its original name when it opened in 1924 as a Louis Kamper-designed property for prominent Detroit hotel developer Lew Tuller. The building most recently functioned as a residential hotel and was known for its low rates.
