My husband and I just spent the night in this beautiful Inn after enjoying the opera Frida at the Detroit Institute of Arts nearby. The several historic homes that are the Inn have been lovingly restored. We enjoyed one of the King Executive rooms in the Scott House. The nonworking fireplace and surrounding tile and mantle appeared to be original... More

I stayed at this place for one night this week. I went to Detroit for a meeting and enjoyed staying here. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The breakfast was good and I enjoyed staying here a lot.

This cool inn is a series of a few historical and well kept mansions on feery street located near the Detroit Institute of Art. A short walk to the hotel. If you plan your trip with excursions and activities within 5 miles of the inn, then there is a free shuttle service included! We took advantage and visited 4 breweries,... More

My wife and I attended the DIA's evening program for the opening of the Diego Rivera/Frida Kahlo exhibit, and the Inn on Ferry Street was the perfect place to stay. We could walk to the museum in five minutes. The inn was clean, the staff was quite helpful, and the breakfast was good. My one caveat would be that the... More

We spent the night at the Inn for a birthday celebration in Detroit. The room was very well appointed, clean, and quiet. The bathroom was a nice size with a whirlpool tub. There was a coffeepot in the room as well as a nice breakfast provided as part of the room charge. We upgraded to a package and had Sunday... More

Meh- we ended up in an attic room. Nicely furnished but sparse because the room was small and the natural pitch of the roof made the room appear smaller. Room was not ready at check-in and I was not thrilled with the wait once we saw the room. Climbed 43 stairs to get to our room and I was quite... More

This was our second stay at the Inn and I have to say that we enjoyed it again. I can't think of a more unique experience in the city. The houses are nicely renovated. We had a slight problem this time in that the heat was not working in our room. At first they didn't want to believe it, but... More

And I did like it. I love the idea of renovating old mansions on a city street and running them as a B&B. What a great way to preserve these old places. The Inn on Ferry Street does a decent job: the rooms are decorated nicely, the bed was fine, the breakfast enjoyable, etc. However, the shower in our room... More

Stayed here because it was close to an appointment we had at Wayne State. Very nice restored Victorian mansion. My room was comfortable and clean. Staff were friendly and polite. The breakfast spread was very nice - eggs, fresh fruit, yogurt, and an assortment of cereals and pastries. The inn has a complimentary shuttle, which was came in very handy... More

We planned to go to the Detroit Film Theatre for the Academy Aware Short Films on my husband's birthday and had been meaning to visit the Inn on Ferry St. ever since my sister had stayed here a few years ago. They had stayed in a Queen room for two nights and had loved it. For this weekend, I had... More
