This is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. The staff was courteous and helpful; the free shuttle service was fast and always available to take us to Wayne State University and to local restaurant. I loved my stay there. My room was beautiful and comfortable. I will always stay at the Inn on Ferry Street every time I'm in Detroit. It is a real treat!

Big surprise

Pros: Old mansions
Had been trying to get in yearly for the past 5 years. Finally made it last Friday and what a surprise. A very unique venue in Detroit. Get to stay in an 1890's mansion with up to date facilities. Would however ask for a first floor room if you have trouble with stairs or heavy luggage. Otherwise, you will not be disappointed with room, complementary breakfast or on site offerings. Even have complementary shuttle within 5 miles of hotel which puts one within range of many restaurants.

anniversary getaway

Pros: Breakfast and free shuttle service
Cons: little confusing where to check in / which building
Location: The Belt off Woodward small ally way that houses some really neat places to eat. Standby restaurant was very unique and food was amazing
We LOVED our stay. We ended up in Executive suite with our own private balcony. The rooms are CLEAN and have extra little touches to make your stay enjoyable. Breakfast was one of the best we have had in a hotel or B&B, we would HIGHLY recommend this place for anyone looking to spend some time in the great city of Detroit.

Wonderful location, beautiful historic spot!

Pros: The staff was so helpful and friendly and were happy to meet any need. The breakfast was delicious with lots of choices. Perfect weekend getaway!
Location: It was easy to get to the Inn off of the expressway and there were lots of good restaurants nearby. It was an easy walk to the DIA.
We loved staying at the Inn on Ferry St. The old homes that make up the Inn are beautiful and well kept up with lovely furnishings. We were there for the weekend and it was relaxing, quiet, and we felt very well cared for. The staff was gracious and very ready to answer questions and meet needs. There is a shuttle that makes it easy to go to other spots in the area.

some changes need to take place

Pros: Good location, nice breakfast. off street parking and (80%) of the staff were very good.
Cons: i would defintely considered to return back
Location: Excellent location, the area is center around a lot of attractions, history, museums.
We and my friend Dorthy had a bad experience with the house van transportation on our first. We were exausted from our flight and ask to have transportation, which was provided but the driver of the van put us out on the corner and was SUPPOSE to return when we called for a ride. We called the front desk left our cell #. The driver never showed. We had to walk back. Lucky, I had been there before to stay at the inn because i found my way back with my friend. I would have to think hard about returning again. Our room was very noisey because of the slamming of the guests doors and the entrance to the house which we stayed at. They should do something to muff the noise when one close the doors to their rooms and exit from the doors. We found it very hard to get a full nights rest.
