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.

Not a great room

Posted 22-Apr-2015
Thought the room / house would have style, but it basically looked like a Comfort Inn. NO Victorian style except for the exterior. Checked into one house, then had our room in another. It was freezing. Lots of steps. NO elevator.

What a wonderful place!

Posted 11-Apr-2015
Great breakfast. Helpful and friendly staff. Beautiful rooms with a lot of character. Good location for WSU, museums, eats and to get into the city. Hard not to be happy just being in those spaces. Look forward to returning as soon as we can.
