Historical Traveler Reviews Inn on Ferry Street Detroit

Highlight of our Detroit stay

from

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

from

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

from

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.

Loved The Inn on Ferry Street

from

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.

If we ever go back to Detroit for anything we will definitely stay at the Inn on Ferry Street again! Gorgeous Victorian Inn and I can't say enough about the friendly staff. The person that prepares the food and keeps the coffee on (there is coffee, tea and fresh fruit available at all times!)the receptionist/consierge, the housekeeping staff, and the great guys that shuttle you to and fro, all very welcoming and friendly! Also, if you happen to go to the casino and stay till the wee hours of the morning (past when the hotel shuttle service is available, I think it's available until 10pm?), then its just a short cab ride which is only about $5 or $6.

Best and only flop-house at which I've ever stayed

from

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.

We loved the Inn!

from

I had the pleasure of staying at The Inn on Ferry Street twice in 2003.

On both visits I found the staff extremely helpful - nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is a very good location in a safe, characterful area of Detroit (although I would recommend using their complementary shuttle service at night) and both the interior and exterior has been tastefully restored. The hotel doesn't have an on-site restaurant but offers a very good room service from Union Street based on Woodward Avenue. The breakfast also is great.

The hotel is based next to the top class musuems of the cultural centre, with the New Centre and Downtown entertainment districts close by. Unless you require some of the more extensive facilities that some larger hotels offer, I would wholeheartedly recommend The Inn on Ferry Street.

Very nice.

from

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.

InnCredible

from

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

from

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

from

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).

The end of our journey is in sight!! We stayed near Detroit on Tuesday night and crossed back into Canada at Sarnia and headed down to Point Pelee - Canada's most southern point before going to Shiela and Rob's last night. Although it is our country's most southerly point, the weather was cold and windy!! Today we are on our way to St Catharines for a quick visit with Grandma ...

... heart of Detroit. I was warned of where to and where not to go. First stop: Renaissance Center. I wanted to dine at the Coach Insigna, but I had to catch my flight by the time they opened. Instead, I took the what-I-call metro [but what locals call "people mover"] around the highlighted areas of Detroit. It had several stops - Broadway Station and Cadillac Center Station just to name two. I hopped off ...

At Evergreen B & B we enjoyed a wonderful, yummy home-cooked breakfast cooked to order by our friendly host Olive. She made delicious oatmeal for me and Eve, eggs and bacon for Jim and fresh, warm croissants for Daniel. We also had fresh fruit salad, yogurts (yes, pear!!!) and toasts. Cereals, juice, teas and coffee were also available. After our breakfast, our taxi arrived to take us to the Dublin Airport which is ...

Before long it was time to get ready for the evening's activities. Yet another welcome desk was set up and this was the happy crew helping delegates out there:

It's been the same all three days. While congregations have arranged for the printing of postcards with pictures of the congregation members and/or their Kingdom Hall, members of congregations have gone ahead with their own ideas. Bookmarks of all kinds, little toys, keyrings and more. One sister gave me a tract holder for witnessing.

But the shirt made from a handkerchief was a really ...
