Lovely restored late 19th century homes. Comfortable accommodations. Generous breakfast with delicious fresh fruit and baked goods. Walking distance to many museums.

The location is outstanding! Nice restaurants - Chartreuse, Babo and Wasabi are right around the corner. My friend and I had rooms in the Carriage House. A quick walk to the main house for breakfast.

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.
