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.

One of a kindPosted 3-Aug-2014
Pros: Relaxing atmosphere and super comfortable bed;also, Wi-Fi. Free shuttle within 5 mile radius.
Cons: Nothing. Totally satisfied, but others might like a refrigerator.
Location: Detroit Museum of Arts and Detroit Historical Museum within a couple blocks of Inn. Comerica Park 1.9 miles away and downtown les than 3 miles away.
historic landmark with relaxing wood paneled setting with hand carved four poster bed. Fair price with excellent continental breakfast. Feels like living in your own grand home, rather than a hotel. Quiet neighborhood within easy distance from Comerica Park and downtown Detroit. Excellent museums within a couple of blocks.

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 VisitPosted 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 ElegancePosted 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 DetroitPosted 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 ArtPosted 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.
