Only steps from the Detroit Institute of Arts, Wayne State University, The Freer Museum, Detroit Historical Museum, and the Michigan Science Center as well as others, this row of 100 year of mansions is the place to stay. There is shuttle service to the Tiggers as well as downtown clubs. We stayed at the Inn because of a wedding. We...

Detroit was dull, but this place was amazing! The room was a little dated, in that my grandmother might have decorated it, but it was, for that reason, 'comfy' and homely. The whole place had character. The breakfast was great. Lots of choice and each choice a good one. The waffles were my favourite! In an age of post-modernist decor...

My husband and I stopped in Detroit after camping in the Upper Peninsula, specifically to see the Detroit Institute of Arts. This Inn is an example of how helpful Trip Advisor can be. Instead of staying in a standard Hilton or Embassy, we stayed here and it was perfect. From the reservation process, to free parking, to breakfast, the staff...

I have debated what I wanted to say in my review of the Inn on Ferry Street b/c we had a bit of a mixed bag during our stay. The houses are lovely and have obviously been restored/refurbished with great care. And the location is good too - you're very close to the Detroit Art Museum, you can easily get...

The room assigned was okay, not sure if we got one of the better rooms. (3021 in the Roehm house). But it was clean and large, just not so high on the old charm. I live in a victorian house, so it wasn't a major issue. I just wanted clean and comfy. Parking was easy, staff was super friendly and...

Two of us, one from Chicago and the other from San Francisco, stayed here to see Detroit. The presence of the Inn is a significant element in the area's recovery - and it is a perfect place to see the DIA and the Midtown Area. Impeccably helpful staff, sumptuous breakfast, a great suite in the carriage house - who could...

This was a great place to stay in a great location in Detroit. We got 20% off our stay by showing our Tigers ticket, and the shuttle to and from the game was a stress-free experience. The bed was very comfy, and our room was surprisingly quiet. Way quieter than the hotel we stayed at the night before! The breakfast...

Decline of the American Empire….? Bull-XXXX! Canadians visit Detroit. Last fall we took a romantic weekend trip to Detroit. It’s a trip that still sticks with us. At the border crossing, the Ambassador Bridge, there was about an hour long line-up (this is encouraging! this is the busiest border crossing between US/Canada and rumours are that 5 hour waits are...

This inn is actually made up of four or five separate buildings. We were in the Pungs building in room 1102. Our room was large with a lot of amenities.

Really not much to add to the many excellent reviews. Nice buildings, large room, courteous service, tasty breakfast (and chocolate chip cookie, both from a local bakery). I esp. have to give props to the various guys who ran around figuring out the key problem, TV issue and drove the shuttle. Would definitely stay here again.
