The room I had was very nice and comfortable. Service is outstanding and the entire staff is very friendly and accommodating. The entire facility is very well maintained with all of...

The Inn is a beautiful hotel as you would expect due to its historical nature and the owners have restored and taken good care of it and been highly sympathetic in its restoration and design of the entire hotel. However, for me, no matter how beautiful a place is, the thing that makes the stay valuable is the service it...

This location was suggested to me by a customer and after viewing it on TripAdvisor, I was sold on staying here. I will admit I am biased as a historic preservation nut, so it was not a hard sell for me. The street: The street is clean, conveniently located on Wayne State University's campus, and very quiet. The homes surrounding...

Just stayed at the Inn on Ferry Street for a quick visit to Detroit. Check-in was a breeze, and there were no problems with our reservation made through Hotels.com. We stayed in a standard queen room, which was beautifully furnished and immaculately clean. The bathroom was small, but it was well designed and appointed. The bed was super comfortable. We...

How delightful to visit Detroit after having lived there 17 years ago and stay at the very conveniently located Inn on Ferry Street. We were there a week and went 4 times to the Detroit Institute of Art, which was a short walk from the Inn. The shuttle was also convenient, driving us downtown to the John King Used Book...

We stayed here with another couple, in town for a Lions game. I wasn't expecting much from a weekend in Detroit, and many people asked why on earth we'd go to Detroit at all. We were all very glad we went. The staff of the Inn made it easy to realize what an amazing, culturally-rich city Detroit is. From their...

The Inn on Ferry Street We recently spent a week in the Inn. It should be better called the Inns because it is comprised of four Victorian buildings and two carriage houses with a central registration lobby and dining room. The buildings are attractive with pediments on the entrances of three of them. The buildings are renovated keeping the high...

We stayed at the Inn for 4 nights in January while we were in Detroit for the Winter Classic. I could not say enough good things about our stay. What makes this inn unique is that it is made up of renovated mansions that span almost a block. You are assigned a room in one of the houses so you...

I couldn't have been happier with my stay at the Inn; from the friendly reception to the comfortable room, generous breakfast and tea, gracious staff. Nothing was too much trouble to the team, who handled every guest's request with speed and efficiency, going beyond the call of duty. Wonderful place, to which I will certainly return!
