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 spot

Posted 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 Detroit

Posted 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.

Quaint and convenient

Posted 2-Sep-2014
Pros: We loved the historical character of the hotel and the full breakfast was excellent. The shuttle bus was convenient and staff were very accomodating
Cons: Hotel should do more to promote excellent local attractions such as the DIA. we could hear the people in the next suite through the bathroom wall.
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 Detroit

Posted 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!

Beautiful historic B&B.

Posted 10-Aug-2014
Pros: The ambience, the beauty of the place, the facilities and the lovely home cooking.
Cons: Nothing - everything is great.
Location: Detroit is a lovely city - visit the music sights (Motown), travel the monorail and enjoy the people and food downtown.
We had a wonderful 2 nights here in Detroit at the Inn on Ferry Street. We were not disappointed - many reviews praise this lovely place and we wholeheartedly agree. Our room was beautiful: fabulous antique furniture complemented with tasteful and lovely soft furnishings and the bed was soo comfortable that we slept like a dream - totally re!axing. And I am sure that there were many rooms even better than ours! Accommodating and friendly staff add to the feel of this lovely place. The free transfers are a treasure and there are lots of good recommendations from the staff for places to go. Breakfast is brilliant with lots of fresh choices every day. We loved it here and highly recommend the Inn on Ferry Street.

Best place in Detroit to stay!

Posted 10-Aug-2014
Pros: "Old-time" feel in well maintained restored buildings.
Location: Close to downtown. A block away from the outstanding Detroit Institute of Arts and in the middle of Wayne State University. Excellent location to stay
Extremely enjoyable B & B to stay near downtown Detroit. Very well managed and excellent staff more than willing to help.
