Rare is the time that a truly excellent hotel is right in one's backyard. I've been to weddings and events at this beautiful property (once a seminary), but couldn't justify the price of room as I live less than 10 miles away. This past weekend, the hotel was running a special and I took advantage of a three day stay-cation.... More

We have stayed at the Inn at St. John's for extended periods of time while my daughter works out at a nearby elite training facility recovering from a brain hemorrhage. The management and staff have been exceptional in every way possible. Being someone who has traveled extensively for business around the country, this property continually surpasses every expectation. The Inn... More

My wife surprised me with a room at the Inn for my 50th birthday. We took the kids and had a wonderful meal at the 5ive restaurant inside the hotel. Spent a few hours in their "lazy river" pool and watched a movie with the kids. Had a wonderful blueberry pancake room service breakfast, swam again in the morning and... More

This is a great little place in the western suburbs of Detroit, featuring peaceful, relaxing grounds and facilities, including gardens and a chapel - plus conference anc meeting room space. It really is quite a nice place, originally built as a seminary and now also incorporating a golf club/resort and conference center. The staff is always polite and helpful, and... More

Stayed for one night here recently and was impressed by the room size. My room had a living area complete with a fridge and a microwave, and a separate bedroom area. Both rooms had large screen tvs. My biggest complaint is that none of the channels are HD - which on a giant screen makes for some very blurry images.... More

I stay here every year at Christmas time. It feels lke they need to liven up the public spaces or update them. The rooms themselves are quite nice and roomy. Good amenities. Great location. Just a little tired.

3 day business trip and our first great experience was in the restaurant. Excellent food. The next morning snow on the car and the grounds man was a hero as he cleared our car off. Tonight, the front desk agent, Chris, was kind enough to dance with me. Great attitude and showed going above and beyond for his guest.

Wonderful setting and experience at this hotel that was created at an old monastery. The details in the architecture are amazing.

Nice and clean comfortable beds.A little expensive, the hotel puts you in the mind of Hilton or Hampton Inn.The restaurant within the hotel was ok. I probably would eat there again or maybe not get the steak. Customer service was friendly and nice.
