The Edward Hotel & Convention Center is a 14-story, 773-room[1] conference center hotel located in the Metro Detroit suburb of Dearborn, Michigan at 600 Town Center Drive, near the intersection of M-39 and U.S. Highway 12.


The hotel was constructed in 1976 as the Hyatt Regency Dearborn. Originally built as an upscale hotel, the building included a people mover to Fairlane Mall. The monorail, hotel, and mall were supposed to be part of a larger office, retail, and residential complex built by Ford's land development subsidiary. The people mover was a Ford Motor Company prototype for an Automatically Controlled Transportation System and was removed in the late 1980s.

The high-rise hotel contains a conference center, restaurants, retail area, and fitness center. The architect, Charles Luckman, designed the hotel in a contemporary Modern style with glass as the main exterior material. The hotel is adjacent to Fairlane Town Center shopping mall, near Ford World Headquarters, and The Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village.

The hotel was renamed Adoba Hotel Dearborn / Detroit on November 1, 2012, then Royal Dearborn Hotel and Convention Center in 2015,[2][3] and most recently Edward Village Michigan Hotel.
