Charming hotelPosted 14-Oct-2014
Pros: Comfortable, quiet, staff were friendly and helpful. Good breakfast buffet.
Location: DIA is very close and the Motown museum is quite near. There's restaurants in midtown or a gas station with Domino's takeaway just round the corner.
A large room with comfortable bed in charming old buildings. The staff are friendly and helpful and there are nice little touches to welcome you. It's located very near the Institute of Arts and quite near the railroad station, and the neighbourhood was quiet and seemed safe, though it's a bit out of the way for downtown attractions. My train was delayed and I was very late arriving but I still received good service.

Traditional American house! Delicious breakfast!Posted 29-Sep-2014
The appearance of this hotel was so good and shortly after I saw it I could like it. Every morning we had a nice breakfast. The hotel service people were so kind.

Very cute little spotPosted 23-Sep-2014
Pros: Very pleasing atmosphere and great staff!
Cons: I wish I would have known there was no air conditioning, it was 80 degrees in my room at the top floor. It was a bit much at times.
Location: Detroit art museum is close by.
It's very quaint and not what you'd expect for being so close to downtown Detroit. A very pleasing experience!

We have stayed at IOFS many times.Posted 19-Sep-2014
Pros: Mostly the breakfast, the van service, and the unique rooms.
Location: Near museums, the DIA, and the health centers. Good Restaurants, and near theaters.
We got a 3rd floor room that needs to be repaired. Dirty windows, air/heat malfunction/ and mirrors hung so low, shaving was interesting. We have enjoyed the IOFS at other times that we have four rooms booked in Oct and Dec. they do listen and follow through. The breakfast is very good. The Inn is an experience every visit.

The Only Place to stay in DetroitPosted 11-Sep-2014
Pros: Located nearby Wayne State University, they are within shuttle distance of downtown, greektown, Ford Field, Comerica Park, Museums, casinos.
Location: Anything you want to do, they can get you there. If the location is too far, they will go out of their way to find quality, dependable taxi service.
This group of homes are the most charming, best kept, best staffed, of any such facility I have ever had the pleasure to stay in. They are beautifully preserved to represent a bygone Victorian Era. The staff are efficient and more helpful than I have ever experienced. The shuttle service will truly pick you up or drop you off anywhere, anytime day or evening.

Location: great asian restauraunt. Shangri La? Area seemed safe and clean.
This was a great place for a short getaway. We saw a concert, and visited the extraordinary Detroit Institute of Art.

Nice historic inn near downtown DetroitPosted 29-Aug-2014
Pros: Everything was excellent - location, breakfast and the shuttle.
Location: The Inn is just a few blocks from the Detroit Institute of Arts.
Our stay at the Inn on Ferry Street was wonderful. Check-in was easy, our room was very nice, breakfast was wonderful and we appreciated the shuttle to and from Comerica Park. This was our second stay here and we will definitely return. We've already recommended the Inn to others.

Cool old house made into a great hotel!Posted 16-Aug-2014
We had a very nice stay at the Ferry Street Inn. We stayed for two nights with our 6 year old. The grounds and interior were very well maintained, the staff very friendly. They even have a driver to take you to nearby places. The only improvement I would suggest, is a better method for driver pickup - we had to call several times before any one answered the phone. Lovely place!
