We were visiting the Detroit area for college visits, and one of the schools suggested we stay at the Inn. As a first time visitor to the area, but appreciative of history, we were excited to stay a few nights here. We were not disappointed! We stayed at the Owen House (next door to the main house) in a Queen...

I was traveling with my mother and my grown daughter and we were all glad that we were able to stay a couple of nights at this wonderful inn. Our room was the former dining room in a huge Victorian house. There were lovely built-in cabinets that were probably original to the house. The living room/parlor was decorated beautifully with...

Every single employee was accommodating and helpful! The homes were gorgeous, well maintained and clean. The toiletries were top of the line (and let's not talk about the delicious cookie!). The breakfast variety was incredible and delicious. The bed was extremely comfortable and I wanted to take the pillows with me! To top it all off, it had snowed a...

The Inn was suggested to me by staff at Wayne State. It was the perfect location for a quick overnight business trip. In between meetings, I was easily able to walk to museums and shops. The staff is very friendly and helpful, even running me to the nearby Whole foods so I could grab fruit and snacks.

I have stayed here a couple of times during the Detroit Motor Show and returned this year with a group of guests - and it was as good as ever. They were ready for us when we arrived and handled check-in better than some large premium hotel chains. Throughout our short stay there was always a ready welcome and a...

The Inn on Ferry St is not your average Detroit hotel... It's a glimpse at the grandeur that was once Motor City and a friendly homely place to spend some time. If you're after slick modern facilities, 24-hour room service, a well stocked mini-bar and cardio theatre, then it probably isn't for you. But if on the other hand you...

My wife and I stayed there, when we were in town for the Guns N Roses concert. It's a great, historic hotel with nice, clean rooms. Each building is unique. The rooms still have the feel of a historic hotel, but are restored and updated. Location is great, and they offer a free shuttle to take you where you want...

Love-love-love..it doesn't get any better than this. Beautiful accommodations and super friendly staff. I don't think we will ever stay anywhere else when we visit the area. First class all the way. Special thanks to Torrance.
