Very loud. Very crowded. Awful smoke so if you are not a smoker don't go because the air filtration system seems non existent. Others may enjoy it but it was claustrophobic and overwhelming for me.

I am not sure about the shuttle but cabs always available, I would NOT recommend walking around outside of motor city casino. Not a good neighborhood. Inside your safe.
