Cozy Retreat

Posted 16-Jan-2017
Pros: Having private parking and a shuttle offered was great. The breakfast was full of fresh fruit which was a great surprise.
Location: There are a ton of unique restaurants around since it is by a campus which is great. Lots of food to try and lots of different styles.
We loved the buildings and all of the little extras provided. We got a chocolate chip cookie and box of water upon reaching our room to just sit and relax in. The room was immaculate with lots of gorgeous features. The bed was super comfortable and the decor was spot on.

Right by a major-league arts museum

Posted 22-Dec-2016
Pros: Besides location, style--and staff
Cons: Not much. In-room refrigerators are not usual in such B&B type "inns."
Location: Try finding such agreeable and affordable accommodation so close to the corresponding museum(s) in more glamorous "destination" cities!.
Fine staff, good breakfast, and old-fashioned style throughout. I was there to be close to the Detroit Institute of Arts and regret that I had only one full day there--right around the corner, 5-6 minutes' brief walk away. Downtown, however, is a couple of miles away. Poor public bus service, but a good shttle is operated by the inn.

Perfect place to stay for a wedding!

Posted 21-Nov-2016
Pros: Buildings.
Cons: Water pressure.
Location: River area, Greek Town, Casino.
We stayed at The Inn on Ferry Street while attending a wedding at the Detroit Institute of Arts . We (wedding guests) were lucky enough to have one of the buildings to ourselves so we could gather downstairs in the living room to visit. They provide a free breakfast with the works, delicious. It was withing walking distance of the DIA but the hotel provided a free shuttle to anywhere within 5 miles so we didn't need to walk to the wedding. The only downside was the water pressure (at least in our third floor room). Shower was challenging and toilet took two flushes. Would definitely recommend!

Beautiful attention to details

Posted 2-Nov-2016
Pros: The attention to details, and the valet shuttle (my first trip to Detroit)
Cons: Sheets and towels a little on the rough side, but maybe they were going for 100% cotton?
Location: Hotel is on the National Register of Historic Places
Staff exceeded expectations, particularly the (one) lady who provided all the breakfast goodies -I don't know how she does this unassisted.

ヒストリカル・ホテル・アメリカの1つ

Posted 29-Oct-2016
Pros: 歴史的建造物で特別な雰囲気、フルブレックファースト、部屋にコーヒーと紅茶を淹れられるコーヒーメーカーとテイーバッグなど、初日の夜に乗り継ぎ2回を含む国際線の長旅で到着した深夜に部屋に用意されていたクッキー
Cons: 昼間ホテルに帰って掃除の人に出くわした時、あまり親切でなかった。1時間時間を潰して帰っても、まだ掃除が終わっていなかった。人種差別?出くわさなければよかったと思う。
Location: デトロイトの中では治安はましな方だと思う。(比較的早い時間に)歩いていけるレストランで良いところは、数えるほど。美術館(DIA)はすぐ隣、入場料を払っても、そこのカフェテリアとコートでお昼を食べるのはおすすめ。私は2日間行きました。

Sehr nettes, viktorianisches Hotel

Posted 27-Oct-2016
Große Zimmer trotz kleiner Häuser. Zwar etwas hellhörig und ohne Aufzug (max. 3 Etagen), Aber sehr gemütlich und urig. Ein Geheimtipp in Detroit.

Aanrader

Posted 22-Sep-2016
Prachtig hotel in een top-buurt in Detroit. Mooie gebouwen en kamers. Een warm welkom door het personeel (inclusief water en home-made cookies), gratis shuttle namens het hotel (hebben wij geen gebruik van gemaakt, alles is te lopen), fietsen, heerlijk uitgebreid ontbijt etc. Goede prijs/kwaliteit!

Pros: Their shuttle will take you within 5 mile radius of the Inn. Beautiful mansions which are well kept.
Cons: Breakfast eating location is a small space. Crowded/insufficient at times.
Location: So well situated. Within walking distance of Detroit Institute of Art, Detroit Historical Museum and Charles Wright of African American History.
Decided to visit museums in Detroit. Had stayed at The Inn on Ferry Street previously. Booked 3 nights. Visited 3 nearby museums and restaurants. Such a wonderful experience. Love the positive energy in Detroit.
