Today is officially my last day here. I really wanted to stay longer, but my budget isn't going to last me much longer. I also wanted to have money left over for myself. I spent the cold day packing inside and returning all the keys to the hotel people. I ...
Today, I was feeling nostalgic. I began to think about all the awesome things I saw in Europe and in Detroit. This is my penultimate day here. I didn't want to leave. I knew I was going to miss this place. It would always have a place in my heart because it reminds me of Houston just a lot ...
Today I went to go watch a Detroit Lions game. They were facing off against the Green Bay Packers. I was a Detroit fan before I came so i was supporting them 100% of the way. It was a nice day out and I couldn't wait for the game to start. They game was extremely intense. At half-time, Detroit was up 10-7. That soon changed and in the end, Detroit lost 20-23. I was a little sad, but I still wore my hoodie with ...
Today, I went back to the zoo. I got to see a lot of cool animals. It was cold and I could tell that the polar bears were enjoying themselves. I got to walk through this glass tunnel that allowed me to see the polar bears from underneath the water. It was amazing. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Inn on Ferry Street Detroit
Highlight of our Detroit stay
We only had one night in Detroit and definately picked the best place to stay. The staff at Inn on Ferry Street patiently let us look at several rooms before deciding to spend the extra $20 for a suite w/ a beautiful sitting room. Cookies were delivered to our door minutes after our arrival. Breakfast included "make your own" waffles with fruit. Although we didn't use it, free shuttle service was available within a 5 mile radius. We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Detroit.
Classy and full of style and elegance
The Inn is a great place to stay for business and romance. It will now be the place for me to stay whenever I'm Detroit. I have told all my family and friends in MI and AZ that the Inn is the place to be. I just loved the music library.
A pleasant place within the city
Absolutely a great place to stay. We were a little iffy on staying at a place within the Detroit city limits, but the Inn on Ferry Street was extremely nice with excellent security and gorgeous facilities. With close proximity to the casinos, museums and downtown, it is well situated, and Greenfield Village and Henry Ford Museum are only a 15 minute drive away. We stayed in an executive suite with a seperate bedroom and living area, and at 159.00 per night, it seemed pretty reasonable. Lots of books and music to choose from right outside our room as well.
Very pleased and our highest recommendation.
My husband and I stayed here the weekend of February 7th and had a great time. The staff was friendly and helpful. They provide a shuttle service and were willing to take us wherever we wanted to go. All we had to do is call them and tell them where we were and they were there to pick us up and take us back to the hotel and in record time too! Our room was beautiful and we loved the whirlpool tub. It was a nice touch to receive "Otis Spunkmeyer" fresh baked cookies and bottled water each day of our stay too! Yum! They had a superb continental breakfast free of charge with fresh yummy gorgeous fruit! You could make your own waffle too. Delectable pastries! The parking was right there and free.
Best and only flop-house at which I've ever stayed
I found this "dive" both wretched and abyssmal. Shame on me for believing seemingly too good to be true statements of false claim puffing up the reputation of this place, which is nothing more than an over-glorified "flop-house" for vagrants.
I had the pleasure of staying at The Inn on Ferry Street twice in 2003.
Only stayed at the Inn one night while passing through Detroit. Very nice place. The room we got was adequate, but not nearly as nice as I was expecting. Smaller than your average hotel room and not really any nicer.
Breakfast was awesome. They have a waffle iron that makes the perfect waffles. All the fruit was fresh and tasted wonderful.
When I checked in I specifically asked if local calls and toll free calls were free and was told they were. Upon checking out I was billed 75 cents for my 2 local calls. Obviously I'm not going to go broke over that, but it was still rather annoying. 1-800- numbers were free though.
Absolutely one of the best stays I've had at a hotel. It was more than a hotel, but a bed and breakfast. As soon as you walk into the foyer, the scent of vanilla envelops you from the kitchen. The comfort of the room is a reminder as to why you chose this place to stay. The staff is helpful and informed. Either as a weekend getaway or just passing through the city, the hotel fits both purposes. I would recommend it highly to ensure the best stay in Detroit.
Better than any hotel
I have a goal of staying in every room in these beatiful houses. The staff is just unbeleivable wonderful. Every room has a unque personality. It's the perfect place to stay for a weekend get-a way just because!
Inn on Ferry Street - Best Place to Stay in Detroit
This place is by "far" the best place to stay in Detroit. When making your reservation, if you don't specify a building, then the reservationist will choose for you, but don't worry, it doesn't matter, each building has been superbly renovated.
The Inn is located one block from the Detroit Institute of Art. A perfect spot to spend a day (or the "Friday Series" at the DIA).
