I absolutely loved the nostalgia of this hotel! This hotel originally opened in 1931 by Henry Ford. Expect a well-cared for, albeit very old hotel experience. The grounds themselves were a sight to see. Definitely not the "norm" for any hotel I've stayed at in the past.
We had "Concierge" rooms, which offered continental breakfast, hors d'oeuvres, and evening dessert. My family and I enjoyed these perks and being able to get breakfast first thing in the morning was great. Note: aside from the two restaurants in the hotel, there is nothing nearby (or at least within short walking distance).
The outdoor, heated pool was also very good! Pool side service was prompt and courteous.
We were there to visit The Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village, which were a mere half mile down the road. Talk about convenient location!
My complaint (which could certainly be a deal breaker for some) would've been the cost. It's an expensive hotel stay, no doubt. Made even worse by the added expense of Internet access (which we did without opting to use the free wifi in the lobby). If I'm paying close to $250/night for a hotel room, I should get free Internet access. Period. It's time for hotels to stop this petty practice!
