Clean, comfortable, friendly staff, warm and inviting lobby, excellent breakfast, beautiful old brick mansion, and less than 2 blocks from the Detroit Institute of the Arts. What more could you ask for?

My husband and I stayed here following our wedding at the Scarab Club. It was perfect! For those reviewers who found the decor a little outdated, I would say that it was just in keeping with the period of house. I didn't find it dowdy at all. The rooms were very comfy and the staff was very friendly and helpful.... More

My husband and I stayed in this wonderful hotel while on a weekend break in Detroit. We loved both the hotel and the city. The houses have much more atmosphere than any downtown hotel and the location, (beside the Institute of Arts) could not be better. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We asked about renting bikes and they... More

Only steps from the Detroit Institute of Arts, Wayne State University, The Freer Museum, Detroit Historical Museum, and the Michigan Science Center as well as others, this row of 100 year of mansions is the place to stay. There is shuttle service to the Tiggers as well as downtown clubs. We stayed at the Inn because of a wedding. We... More

Detroit was dull, but this place was amazing! The room was a little dated, in that my grandmother might have decorated it, but it was, for that reason, 'comfy' and homely. The whole place had character. The breakfast was great. Lots of choice and each choice a good one. The waffles were my favourite! In an age of post-modernist decor... More

My husband and I stopped in Detroit after camping in the Upper Peninsula, specifically to see the Detroit Institute of Arts. This Inn is an example of how helpful Trip Advisor can be. Instead of staying in a standard Hilton or Embassy, we stayed here and it was perfect. From the reservation process, to free parking, to breakfast, the staff... More

I have debated what I wanted to say in my review of the Inn on Ferry Street b/c we had a bit of a mixed bag during our stay. The houses are lovely and have obviously been restored/refurbished with great care. And the location is good too - you're very close to the Detroit Art Museum, you can easily get... More

The room assigned was okay, not sure if we got one of the better rooms. (3021 in the Roehm house). But it was clean and large, just not so high on the old charm. I live in a victorian house, so it wasn't a major issue. I just wanted clean and comfy. Parking was easy, staff was super friendly and... More

Two of us, one from Chicago and the other from San Francisco, stayed here to see Detroit. The presence of the Inn is a significant element in the area's recovery - and it is a perfect place to see the DIA and the Midtown Area. Impeccably helpful staff, sumptuous breakfast, a great suite in the carriage house - who could... More

This was a great place to stay in a great location in Detroit. We got 20% off our stay by showing our Tigers ticket, and the shuttle to and from the game was a stress-free experience. The bed was very comfy, and our room was surprisingly quiet. Way quieter than the hotel we stayed at the night before! The breakfast... More
