We stayed at this beautiful place within the Detroit downtown area. They have very cute rooms and spent a lot of time to refine them. They also offer a complementary shuttle service within 5 miles in which you are arriving the river walk easily. :-) The included breakfast is also great, there is nothing you have to look for...

I reserved the Scott House Executive Suite, specifically for its Jacuzzi tub. I was dismayed to find it permanently discolored and with a deteriorated bottom (cracked & segmented, with too much porosity to possibly clean properly). I left a week ago with a rash from this tub, for which I now need to see a doctor. The rest of the... More

Great building, wonderful staff, great rooms. Fabulous healthy breakfast! More like a 4/5 star English boutique hotel than the usual America generic rubbish! I'd stay here again in heartbeat if I ever come back to Detroit!!

The complimentary shuttle to and from the Baseball game was just another bonus that puts this hotel over the top! This was my first visit at the Inn on Ferry buy certainly not... More

After being away from Detroit for over 30 years this was an incredible experience! Beautiful homes, no matter which one you stay in, they are all gorgeous. The staff is incredible and Craig and the others drove us where we needed to go in the hotel shuttle. We could walk to many places and were a short drive from the... More

I would have rated this excellent except for the A/C. My room was very hot. The room was so pretty. The color scheme was so warm and the bathroom was huge. It had a jacuzzi and I had wished I had more time to enjoy it all. I will definitely go back.

Picture yourself walking up the front walk to a large mansion, putting the key in the door and entering a large foyer/sitting room and then going up the massive wooden staircase to the bedroom. That's the reality of staying at the Inn on Ferry. It really is a very nice hotel with great service (as stated before in a lot... More

Thanks to all those on TripAdvisor for your rave reviews of The Inn on Ferry. We absolutely loved it! Fantasic location just blocks from museums, shops and dining. The staff was wonderful and provided us with the magical history of the Inn. We'll definitely be back!
