Enjoyed the free shuttle service and yummy breakfast! The room was spacious and well kept and we immediately felt like home when we arrived to the Inn. Every person we interacted with was super friendly and helpful and I wish we could have stayed longer.

This is a hidden gem and I will be staying more often. Every person was cheerful and ready to help. The breakfast is fabulous, the accommodations perfect, and the shuttle service impeccable. If you live in Detroit and want to take your spouse out for a night on the town this is the place. They will shuttle you anywhere within...

Just a little ways from downtown Detroit, but they have an excellent and prompt shuttle service to take you anywhere downtown. Friendly staff and the rooms are very comfortable and quaint. The breakfast was great with fresh berries and quiche. The parking was free and very secure. Enjoyed everything about it. It was probably the best place I stayed during...

My room felt very cozy and personal. I loved the unique design of the room and the funishings were one of a kind! I personally am a fan of authentic and antique wood, so I was in heaven at this place. Original carvings on the staircase are well preserved which made me appreciate my stay even more. My bathroom was...

This hotel is actually a row of beautifully restored mansions that date to the late 19th and early 20th century. Great atmosphere with all the amenities and friendly staff. Breakfast is included and is ample and excellent. Perhaps a consideration for some older folks: there are no elevators. The houses are within walking distance of Detroit's cultural center and Wayne...

What a gem of a place. A row of beautifully restored mansions across from Wayne State University and a short walk to the Detroit Institute of Arts, Detroit Public Library, Detroit Historical Museum, and more. The rooms were elegant and felt like you were staying in your great, great grandparent's home. And breakfast was well-appointed with something for every taste....

For the price of an ordinary, modern hotel, you can stay in this beautifully decorated inn and feel like you're living in a fine Victorian home, with a well-trained staff to assist you. I arrived early in the day, with work to do, and my room wasn't ready yet, but there was all the complimentary Tazo tea, coffee, fresh fruit,...
