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!

We were drawn to this accommodation by the unique set up of it being several historic homes and carriage houses, and the rave reviews and were not disappointed. Free parking behind the homes and in walking distance to the Detroit Institute of Art as well as the restaurant of the year! Room was lovely and comfortable, in fact the best... More

This was going to be a 4-star review, but it got kicked to 5 stars by the absolutely wonderful shuttle service (and shuttle driver) that the Inn provides at no charge for destinations within about 5 miles of the Inn; this covers a lot of Detroit. We got a Detroit travelogue en route to our destinations, and excellent restaurant suggestions.... More

Starting with the good: Location can't be beat! Close to everything you would want to do it Detroit. Inn is in a gorgeous neighborhood. Beds are SO comfortable! Free shuttle service is a great perk! Staff was very nice. The not so good: While the outside of the home is spectacular and listed on the National Register of Historic Places,... More

The Inn at Ferry Street is charming, historic hotel in the heart of midtown. I think there are four, if not five, separate houses that have been lovingly restored from the ground up. Each house has its own distinctive feel, but all have a common living room area on the main floor, with individual rooms and suites throughout the rest... More

The Inn on Ferry Street delivers on its promise, they treat their guests like family, just as they did in times gone by. When you are there, you feel like you have stepped back into the past where innkeepers welcomed you into their homes and took care of all of your needs. They carried my bags, walked me to my...
