The staff was extremely accommodating, transportation provided to any destination within five miles. Right around the corner from one of the great museums in the country. The room was large and very comfortable. Only shortcoming was shortage of furniture for clothes and luggage.

Excellent hotel for Detroit Visit

Posted 10-Jul-2014
Pros: The service provided by the hotel staff was some of the best I have encountered at any hotel I have visited around the world. True professionals.
Location: Ferry Street is a nice street full of late 19th century homes that have been restored. Really beautiful area and not what we expected from Detroit.
We stayed at The Inn on Ferry Street for one night, as we were in town to see a musical at the Opera House. The service of the staff here is excellent, and they picked us up from the Amtrak station after our arrival from Chicago. Their shuttle will take you anywhere you want within a 5-mile radius, which is perfect to get you downtown or most other places you would be interested in seeing.

Old World Elegance

Posted 5-Jul-2014
The Inn on Ferry Street is a block of beautifully restored stately old world Detroit homes. The room was clean with georgeous decor, and comfort beyond your typical hotel. The staff was intelligent, attentive and respectful. The shuttle service goes above and beyond. The breakfast was wonderful. I will definately come back every time I have an event to attend or site seeing to do. You have a guest for life!

Comfort and style in the heart of Detroit

Posted 15-Jun-2014
The Inn on Ferry Street is a page back in time. Comfort is key with vintage appointment in an historic setting. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Take a shuttle, enjoy a wonderful brunch on site, or just settle in for some quality R & R. Experience the grandeur of a bygone era. Jonathon gave a historic tour of the buildings and premises and surrounding area that was interesting and enjoyable. My thanks to all the staff that made my stay pleasant and exceeded my expectations. I would definitely book here again and could imagine staying as a family in a single house with reception areas a great way to come together. The courtyard is picturesque for a wedding of your dreams.

Detroit Institute of Art

Posted 14-Jun-2014
Pros: Close to the Museum and restaurants. Inn has free shuttle to local places. Breakfast was really nice.
Location: Walking distance to Art Museum, Historical Society, Public Library. The museum is one of the nicest in USA. The Rivera mural is worth the visit, but
Everything was fantastic. The room was large, very clean. Great security.

This is a lovely place.

Posted 28-May-2014
Here's the bad news: it'd be terribly dull to cook here. The breakfast offering is the same every day. Not without variety or choices, but surprising for a B&B not to change it up - & I was here for five consecutive breakfasts, so it wasn't just 2 days. But the great news is this: staff are courteous and responsive; the facilities are beautiful, inside and out; the beds are quite comfy; & it's a restful place. The Inn on Ferry Street is worth staying at. And even though I complained about the food: it's GOOD food, & *does* allow for some variety - there is too much to choose from to eat in even 2 or 3 days. Overall, a great place to stay.

Very nice, short stay during my visit. Needed a hotel close to the University Medical Center, and this fit the bill perfectly. Arrived around 1am and was personally escorted to my room by a security guard (which I much appreciated, considering the the B&B is comprised of several different houses/building). Would definitely stay here again.

The Inn on Ferry Street is Nice!

Posted 15-May-2014
Location: Lack of restaurants.
My Wife and I were in Detroit to go to the Henry Ford Museum. The Inn on Ferry Street is very nice, comfortable and the staff is great. The breakfast is good and they have baked goods throughout the day. The street scene is OK around the Inn. We walked and felt safe. However the downside is the lack of places to eat. The Inn is close to Wayne State University. Very few places to eat. The few restaurants around the University either were Closed on Sunday and Monday or Closed around 4pm. When dinner time came, we had to go to the MGM Detroit to find a place to eat.
