We had a great stay at Honor & Folly while visiting Detroit for the Maker Faire, the week after Detroit declared bankruptcy. The place is well decorated, spacious and in a fun location (albeit a bit sketchy) that is a short drive from many of the great things Detroit has to offer.
Things we loved: great location (above Slows BBQ, close to Dequindre Cut bike path and the Eastern Market); great decor; spacious; super close to the border and highway; close to Supino's pizza; owner was very responsive via text to address our questions; across the street from the abandoned Roosevelt train station (cool and a bit creepy)
Cautionary notes: bring your own soap for the shower (there was none when we went); don't depend on WiFi (you have to tap into the free WiFi from Slows BBQ downstairs and it didn't work for us - this was an unexpected challenge, as our kids wanted to watch Netflix and were unable to); scissors as a wall decoration in the spare bedroom (nice to look at, bad for kids - no running please); parking can be a bit tricky (you want to park out front, but there are a lot of folks coming to eat at Slows, so parking can be a bit of a challenge).
Recommendations: rent bikes at the waterfront and bike around Detroit, particularly Eastern Market and the Dequindre Cut greenway; visit the nearby Heidelberg Project.More
