The advantages of staying in a short term rental over a hotel are numerous – starting with the fact that they usually work out cheaper per night. But another benefit is that you often find them in residential districts, allowing for a more authentic travel experience where you get to live like a local. And then there’s all of the home comforts, too, including kitchens and living areas. Persuaded? Then check out of selection below of three online resources for finding rentals in Detroit.


Booking.com are our recommended resource for finding a furnished short stay apartment in Detroit for spells of anything from a few days up to a few weeks. The platform has a globally renowned reputation and is known primarily as a hotel booking website, though they also have a substantial number of listed apartments. When we looked for daily or weekly rentals in Detroit, around 17 apartments were available, starting at $84 per night for a studio in the city’s northern districts. They also offer a Best Price Guarantee as well as a comprehensive customer reviews section under each property so you can see what previous guests have to say about their stay.



Landing cater to renters requiring a property for periods spanning a month up to a full year or more. They have fully furnished apartments in cities across the US, with every property featuring the same aesthetic (Landing designs and custom-makes all the furniture). Their properties are usually housed in newly built or recently renovated buildings with a variety of desirable amenities available for use. Leases are entirely flexible with no long-term commitment required. One of Landing’s main USPs is that if you want to relocate after a while for any reason, all you do is pack up your stuff and move into another Landing apartment, with no fees. Landing currently have 111 properties available for rent in Detroit, with prices starting at around $2,220 per month for a one-bed loft apartment.


Corporate Housing

Whether you’re a business traveller, have moved home and need a temporary base while you sort your new place out, or are simply on vacation, they help you find the short-term living solution that best meets your needs. After finding a property via  the simple-to-use online search function, you can then reach out through an online contact form or by phone.
