Daxton Hotel is set to open its doors February 2021 in Birmingham, Michigan. It will be the first hotel by local entrepreneur Mark Mitchell and the latest hotel to launch by Aparium Hotel Group. The 151-room hotel will bring a modern vision of Birmingham luxury incorporating fine art, wellness, dining, and retail.
A new building on the city’s iconic Woodward Avenue, Daxton Hotel will feature a minimalist-luxe design with close to 400 pieces of cutting-edge art curated by Saatchi Art. The portfolio of mixed-media brings whimsical and energetic flair. Vibrant colors flood spaces throughout the hotel, featuring a chartreuse lobby, deep-burgundy guestrooms, and lavender parlors. Daxton brings a blend of provocative and edgy style, offering artistic freedom expression throughout the use of light rays, shadows, and reflections creating an ethereal mood. Each guestroom will include at least two custom pieces of artwork from 160 artists representing 32 countries. The artwork crosses multiple mediums including painting, photography, collage, drawing, and sculpture of some of the best international, national, and regional artists, while local acclaimed muralist Ouizi (Louise Jones) will be creating design scrim headboard backdrops for the guestrooms.
Daxton Hotel’s vision stems from owner Mark Mitchell, a lifelong metro Detroit area resident, who has pledged to create a hotel product in his local community that will set a new cultural standard for hospitality. Mitchell wanted to integrate his family story into the build with the property being named after his son Daxton, with other subtle nods throughout.
