Beautiful restored homes

Posted 23-Jul-2015
Location: Motown museum is a short drive away and worth the trip!
Several old mansions restored and turned into beautiful guest rooms with comfortable sitting areas. The breakfast is fabulous! Don't miss it!

Visiting Detroit for first time to see Frida K

Posted 8-Jul-2015
Pros: Liked everything! Fun to stay in a Victorian mansion. Staff bent over backwards to make sure we were comfortable. Big comfy bed, private parking.
Location: Within walking distance of almost everything in the historic district. The Detroit Institute of Arts is amazing. We left our car parked & walked.
This was my first trip to Detroit, I have wanted to see Detroit for many years. I loved everything about Detroit so much so that I think we are going again in the fall and spend a longer time there. There is so much to see and do in and around Detroit that you could spend a hundred years and not do it all. The Inn on Ferry St was a beautiful place to stay, the staff bent over backwards to give us service and make us feel welcome to Detroit and make sure we were comfortable. The city seemed buoyant, the people seemed proud that they were undergoing a renaissance and every one that we encountered was polite and helpful. The room at the Inn on Ferry St. was beautiful, comfortable big bed and clean. Best of all, The Inn was right around the corner from the Detroit Institute of Arts (my destination to see the Frida and Diego exhibit) and we could walk to almost everything in the historic district. I would definitely recommend Detroit for entertainment junkies like we are and most especially recommend the Inn as a great place to stay. We will be going back. Also good parking at the Inn in a private lot.

The staff make this hotel

Posted 24-Jun-2015
Pros: Location is ok and there is a free local shuttle service if you don't have a car. Certainly felt a safe neighbourhood. Staff were excellent!!!
Location: You must visit the Motown museum and take a tour. It is very close by and well worth the nominal entrance fee.
If it were not for the staff I would be writing a totally different review. I'm not sure if the fault is with Expedia clawing this as an Elite benefit hotel but we saw no benefits and our room on the third floor was pretty pokey with low eaves height and dirty carpet (which is apparently due to be cleaned in a week or so). The hot water stopped working in the morning but the staff were excellent in response so I would not mark them down for that. On balance I would give them another go but would be more specific about the room I would expect for the money paid.

Discovering Detroit

Posted 20-Jun-2015
Wonderful, thoughtful staff. Breakfast is to sleep for. The free shuttle (5 mi. radius) made my trip. Backyard proximity to the DIA--and all of its treasures, including 2 great cafes--is unbeatable. the Inn's own history in the middle of Detroit's makes staying there interesting and even more attractive.

Antique charm near the DIA

Posted 24-May-2015
Pros: Location, staff, style of house and room.
Cons: I wouldn't change a thing.
Location: Very close to Detroit Institute of Art, the Detroit Historical Society, Wayne University, Michigan Science Center, Museum of African American History
If you are in Detroit to go to the DIA, stay at the Inn On Ferry Street. A collection of four mansions and two carriage houses that operate as a bed and breakfast, it is a two short blocks walk to the DIA. The Queen Anne style brick and stucco Victorian houses are lovely and well located. A continental breakfast is included. Beds are comfortable, the rooms are clean and the houses are beautiful. The staff is first rate, knowledgeable and helpful.

Victorian stay next to the museum

Posted 8-May-2015
Pros: The staff was especially helpful with everything. Lashon even helped me handle my mail.
Location: This was perfect right next to the Detroit Institute of Arts and within the developing Midtown neighborhood of Detroit.
This is a perfect example of a simple, easy stay on a quick trip while having a comfortable and aesthetically pleasing environment within which to stay.
