About my stay at The Inn on Ferry Street

Posted 9-Mar-2015
Pros: I loved the "Old World" flavor of the Inn and Guest rooms. Really was like stepping back in time to when craftmenship was done by hand and not robotic
Cons: If I had know I would have reserved a 1st floor and not the 3rd floor walkup I ended up with. The wool carpets need to be updated in the rooms. Very
Location: Had the opportunity while staying in Detroit to test the local food establishments and high on the list to try was Seldons. Actually did not end up e
Overall a very enjoyable experience with a realistic price. Location to Wayne State University a real plus. Staff was exceptional all the way down to the shuttle drivers. By the way the shuttle access a hugh plus to the entire experience. Safety first and took us everywhere we wanted to go and waiting outside the door when we were ready to return.

A perfect place to stay in Motor City

Posted 21-Jan-2015
LOVED everything about this serene little spot near the University: the neighborhood, the staff, the sweet suite we were upgraded to, the breakfast that was included and especially the delicious cookie that awaited us in our room when we arrived. Really, look no further.

Nice Stay in Downtown

Posted 2-Jan-2015
Pros: History, Comfort, Location, Shuttle Service and the Bed and Breakfast Feel.
We had tickets for Wicked and decided to stay the night in Detroit. The Inn on Ferry Street was interesting due to the history and we decided to stay. We are glad we did. The houses were very nicely done and the staff gave us a tour the next day.

Nice B&B/hotel close to everything mid-town

Posted 1-Jan-2015
Pros: The staff, the high ceiling room nicely decorated, the comfortable bed, the tuned piano in the lobby, the many breakfast options, the shuttle service.
Cons: A working thermostat
Location: You are in the heart of Wayne State country and are in walking distance to the many performance halls that are connected with the U.
We were first very impressed by the very professional and helpful concierge and were surprised by the efficient shuttle service. The room itself was beautiful but the view overlooked a parking lot. There was no way to control the heat which was set a little low for our taste but a space heater was provided which was sufficient. Breakfast in the morning was served like a Holiday Inn Express which was a little disappointing; there was no communal dining experience with fellow guests or any host presiding. I guess the facility is really a hotel that only looks like a B&B.

Very nice hotel in Detroit area

Posted 20-Dec-2014
Pros: It was very clean, the staff was very helpful and courteous. The food is delicious!
Location: The location is close to everything in Detroit. We stayed there to be close to the theaters. Greektown is close by as is Comerica park.
This is the second time we have stayed here and love it. They are very helpful with restaurant suggestions and are very courteous. We will probably stay there again. Breakfast foods are delicious.

What a wonderfully charming place to stay!

Posted 13-Dec-2014
Pros: Old-world charm with all the modern comforts and conveniences.
Cons: Honestly I can't think of anything that I would want to/need to improve.
Location: It is near downtown Detroit and located in a historic district of beautiful old mansions.
If you are tired of the same ol' same ol' hotel chain experience, have I got a great recommendation for you. I could not have been more delighted with my experience here. The room was cozy and charming. The breakfast in the morning was great. The staff were friendly and helpful. The location was great, even though I was initially concerned about being in the "inner-city" of Detroit. My wife and I fell in love with this place, and we will definitely be back again.

Great choice!

Posted 8-Dec-2014
Pros: Having the shuttle available was an added perk!
My husband and I flew in for the football game and had never been to the city. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The staff was friendly and helpful, the breakfast was great and the room was spotless! We will definitely stay here the next time we come to Detroit. Thanks for a great stay!

Great Post-Thanksgiving Visit to Detroit

Posted 1-Dec-2014
Pros: great character of the interiors, quiet, peaceful environment, friendly, professional staff
Cons: The toilet in our room ran continually. It wasn't noisy and therefore disturbing but was definitely a water waster.
Location: Wayne State U. campus is a block away. Detroit Institute of the Arts is a couple of blocks away
My partner and I decided to visit Motor City to go to the DIA and finally see its great collection. We arrived on Friday afternoon and checked out on Sunday morning. From check-in to check-out the staff was friendly, accommodating, informative, and helpful. Our room was spacious, perfectly clean, and comfortable. A large seating area just outside our room proved to be a comfortable place to sit and read (they have a nice library of books and cds). The complimentary breakfast offered a nice selection of warm and chilled food items - quiche, waffles, rolls, cereals, coffees & teas, etc. Everything I tried was quite delicious. The Inn is located next to the Wayne State U. campus, within walking distance of DIA and the main library, and generally in a nice residential neighborhood. The Inn offers a shuttle to downtown restaurants and entertainment venues which is an incredibly handy service. The shuttle driver was both knowledgeable and very friendly. The Inn is a collection of several fine Queen Anne homes converted to serve the hotel function. The Inn's owners and staff deserve a lot of credit for their sensitive rehabilitation and maintenance of these great houses. The Inn is a great way to visit Detroit and avoid the cookie cutter corporate hotel scene. I recommend it enthusiastically.
