Detroit when Detroit was Elegant

Posted 11-Apr-2014
This hotel is wonderful. Beautiful old sandstone mansions that have been completely restored inside and outside. The rooms are very comfortable with large sitting rooms in each house which were ideal for meeting with colleagues. Another nice plus is the free shuttle. I was staying for a conference at Cobo Hall. The free shuttle made getting to and from conference very convenient.

Detroit's best kept secret

Posted 20-Mar-2014
Can't wait to go back! The staff is top notch, the Inn is one of a kind and there is so much to do within 5 miles. It just so happens that the inn has a shuttle that will take you and pick you up free within 5 miles.

Excellent hotel, very accommodating staff.

Posted 13-Mar-2014
Pros: The breakfast and staff are exceptional.
Cons: I think the pricing should vary as the size and amenities of the room varies. Pricing is set only by bed size.
Location: Very close to Wayne State University, where we needed to be. Also close to Greek Town, Detroit Institute of Art and nice restaurants
We had intended staying only one night, but got caught by a serious snowstorm. The staff accommodated our need for in house meeting space and found me a room for the additional night. The rooms vary in quality, but all are way above-average. The staff is exceedingly friendly and helpful. The breakfast is outstanding. They arranged food in for lunch during the storm. They recommended a restaurant for dinner and provided shuttle to and from.

A Downtown Oasis

Posted 10-Feb-2014
We stay at the Inn on Ferry Street every time we visit Detroit, which is about half a dozen times a year. It's a short walk to the DIA, and close to many other attractions. I look forward to our stays, as every room is unique and well-appointed and the breakfast is always top-notch. The staff is friendly and helpful as well. I can't say enough good things about it!

Wonderful Hotel In Cultural District Of Detroit

Posted 30-Jan-2014
Pros: Absolutely everything about the hotel was superb. the free shuttle downtown was an enormous boon if you don't want to drive
Cons: In my attic room it took a bit of time for hot water to run into the washbasin but this is a very minor quibble considering the location of the room
Location: It's in the cultural district, the Detroit Institute Of Arts is one block away, and the Detroit museum just across Woodward Avenue both are excellent
I decided to treat myself to an early birthday present by visiting the North American Motor Show in Detroit. So I did some research and decided to give this hotel as it looked very different from the usual type of hotel I stay in when I visit the United States & Canada. Just as you walk through the front door you are overwhelmed by the perfect sense of welcome , the staff at the front desk make immediately you feel at home. I've always liked the style of Victorian Americana and to me this is the perfect example of that type of decor, the dining room/lounge is truly amazing and I spent ma,ny a happy hour sat reading in the chair in the corner by the front window, just sat by the fire drinking coffee and listening to the ticking clock. My room in the attic in the house next door was great, lots of room, huge comfortable bed, good shower/WC . Breakfast was also great loved the waffle maker

My favorite hotel experience of all-time

Posted 9-Jan-2014 on Hotels.com
This place is such a gem. I travel a lot for work, and it was a real joy to stay here. The rooms and setup are so charming, and the breakfast is tremendous. The free shuttle takes you wherever you need to go within 5 miles, which gets you to everywhere you'd want to go to in Detroit, and there's free and safe parking available. These are old Victorian-era homes, and the bathroom with separate tub and shower was larger than my NYC living room. For me, the only drawback was visiting in January, when the temperature dropped to -3. These buildings are 130+ years old, so while the digital thermostat is modern, getting the temperature to climb above 66 in those conditions was a challenge. However, the staff could not have been more helpful, quickly sending over a very friendly maintenance man with space heaters that worked great. Everyone who works here is so nice, and this could not have been a more pleasant stay. Unfortunately, every hotel experience will be downhill after this one.

Perfect for a sports event.

Posted 26-Dec-2013 on Hotels.com
Recently stayed at the Inn on Ferry as part of a Detroit Lions game. We have stayed at the Inn several times for Detroit sports and concerts. The Inn is ideal in many ways, convenient to the venues, complimentary shuttle and value. The staff is excellent and the breakfast is much better than most in this category. This is a great place to stay in Detroit.
