Historical Traveler Reviews The Dearborn Inn, A Marriott Hotel
Last week, I had to stay in Detroit for 2 nights as I had a business meeting set up with Ford. I typically end up staying at the Hyatt Regency which is a great hotel & conveniently accross the street from a beautiful mall. Unfortunately, they were sold out & thus I was relegated to stay at the Dearborn Inn by Marriott, which is the other Ford owned hotel in the area. Much to my dismay, the hotel was nothing like the Hyatt. The rooms were very small. The hotel was just not laid out very nicely, the hallways were dark & dingy.
My High Recommendations are to stay at another hotel during your visit to the Detroit area.
Loved the Dearbon Inn will only stay there.
I travel to Deroit every other week and have stayed at all of the Hotels. The Dearborn Inn is fabulous. The staff is world-class; you forget that you are in Detroit.
Hospitable, Comfortable and Traditional
Every January I spend a few days in Detroit for the North American International Auto Show.
When I travel I tend to stay in modern, business class hotels (W Hotels, Swissotel, Ian Schrager Properties, etc.) But every year in Detroit, I spend at least a couple nights at the Dearborn Inn. It is a few minutes drive out of downtown Detroit and it is a wonderful place.
Every year there are executives from the major automakers (CEO's and other bigwigs from Ford, DaimlerChrysler, Audi, etc..) staying at the Dearborn Inn for the launch of the auto show. Its a very nice place.
It is extremeley traditional- colonial styled architecture. The rooms are averagely sized and appointed but always very clean. The restaurant is excellent, I recommend it highly even if you don't stay at the hotel.
I am often times upgraded to one of the "cottages" in the back, which are like multi-bedroom apartments, just by asking nicely.
The staff has always been very friendly and knowledgeable. Definately one of the best places in the Detroit area- and I've stayed at lots of them.
This was our first stay at the Inn and it was amazing. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The rooms are very clean. We ate at the tavern and the lounge in the hotel and both were great. The outside area is maintained very well and is beautiful. We would like to stay in one of the historical houses next time. We spoke with someone staying in one of them and they said that they liked it even better than staying in the hotel. The only negative thing I could say about the room we stayed in is that it was a little smaller then we are used to in hotels.
The Greatest Anniversary Celebration Site
Just back from a fabulous weekend. My husband and I were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary and took one daughter, three sons, three daughters-in-law, four grandchildren (ages 6,6,4,10 months) and spent a weekend at the Dearborn Inn. Wehad rooms in the little houses, our package included breakfasts, tickets to Greenfield Village and Henry Ford Museum and a BIG open "running" space along with apool.
It was a delightful time. I have never encountered a staff which was so completely, unfailingly pleasant, helpful, and just plain fun to talk with. kudos to the Inn and its people
Good + Very Close to Ford Museum Complex
Good location only a couple of minutes drive from the Ford Museum.
The hotel itself is historic and had a good resteraunt.
The room was not overly big but in good condition.
Check the cheap hotel/ticket packages if you plan to visit the Ford museum.
It was okay. We had made last minute reservations because we were in Michigan to go to the University of Michigan graduation in Ann Arbor. Close to Detroit, but far from Ann Arbor. We thought that we were getting a two-room suite, but it was just one room. We ended up spending the next night at a Marriot in Ypsilanti. The hotel had a great lobby and had historic charm, but just not right for me.
Stay where the Automaker Execs stay!!!
This is a nice hotel located about 15 mins from downtown detroit. The weekend rates are a lot lower(89 vs 250.00). I used priceline and got in on a 45 dollar bid. Free parking is a major plus. I stayed here in Jan. 2004, for the Auto Show. The hotel is also located mins from the Henry Ford Museum. The rooms were a good size with high celings.
Nothing negative to report here.
A very nice place, beautiful lobby, great rate, happy with the room and service and so close to the Ford Museum. We stayed in one of the outbuildings though and would rather have booked a room in the more elaborate main hotel if we had known.
Could Not Have Been Better!
The Dearborn Inn is truly a all-around class act! I really have to hand it to the Marriott Corporation for keeping the charm of the original Henry Ford Hotel when they bought the Inn. The staff are all unbelievably helpful and courteous. In the summer, the grounds are beautiful and the food is always good. Much better than staying in the Ritz down the street!

The walkalators and tram were necessities. A traveller would be terribly exhausted if he tried to walk ...
