Antique charm near the DIAPosted May 24, 2015
Pros: Location, staff, style of house and room.
Cons: I wouldn't change a thing.
Location: Very close to Detroit Institute of Art, the Detroit Historical Society, Wayne University, Michigan Science Center, Museum of African American History
If you are in Detroit to go to the DIA, stay at the Inn On Ferry Street. A collection of four mansions and two carriage houses that operate as a bed and breakfast, it is a two short blocks walk to the DIA. The Queen Anne style brick and stucco Victorian houses are lovely and well located. A continental breakfast is included. Beds are comfortable, the rooms are clean and the houses are beautiful. The staff is first rate, knowledgeable and helpful.

Victorian stay next to the museumPosted May 8, 2015
Pros: The staff was especially helpful with everything. Lashon even helped me handle my mail.
Location: This was perfect right next to the Detroit Institute of Arts and within the developing Midtown neighborhood of Detroit.
This is a perfect example of a simple, easy stay on a quick trip while having a comfortable and aesthetically pleasing environment within which to stay.

Great location, near Detroit Institute for the Arts, restaurants and shops. Wayne State University Campus is nearby as well.

Not a great roomPosted Apr 22, 2015
Thought the room / house would have style, but it basically looked like a Comfort Inn. NO Victorian style except for the exterior. Checked into one house, then had our room in another. It was freezing. Lots of steps. NO elevator.

What a wonderful place!Posted Apr 11, 2015
Great breakfast. Helpful and friendly staff. Beautiful rooms with a lot of character. Good location for WSU, museums, eats and to get into the city. Hard not to be happy just being in those spaces. Look forward to returning as soon as we can.

About my stay at The Inn on Ferry StreetPosted Mar 9, 2015
Pros: I loved the "Old World" flavor of the Inn and Guest rooms. Really was like stepping back in time to when craftmenship was done by hand and not robotic
Cons: If I had know I would have reserved a 1st floor and not the 3rd floor walkup I ended up with. The wool carpets need to be updated in the rooms. Very
Location: Had the opportunity while staying in Detroit to test the local food establishments and high on the list to try was Seldons. Actually did not end up e
Overall a very enjoyable experience with a realistic price. Location to Wayne State University a real plus. Staff was exceptional all the way down to the shuttle drivers. By the way the shuttle access a hugh plus to the entire experience. Safety first and took us everywhere we wanted to go and waiting outside the door when we were ready to return.

A perfect place to stay in Motor CityPosted Jan 21, 2015
LOVED everything about this serene little spot near the University: the neighborhood, the staff, the sweet suite we were upgraded to, the breakfast that was included and especially the delicious cookie that awaited us in our room when we arrived. Really, look no further.

Great Hotel!Posted Jan 20, 2015
This is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at! I spent two nights at the Inn on Ferry St for while I was interviewing at Wayne St. Everyone was incredibly hospitable. During my check-in, I asked the front desk person about transportation in the area. She offered me the complimentary shuttle, which was incredibly helpful to get around the city, especially in the cold. The room was very modern and up to date, though it retain and old-fashioned charm to it due to the unconventional shape and choice of furniture. I felt like I was staying a a close friend's house as opposed to a hotel. The only downside to the hotel is the neighborhood. While it is great in terms of being close to campus and several prominent museums, I would not feel safe walking around alone for long. The hotel itself had a swipe entry after 11, which made it feel safe. Overall, I will come back my next trip to Detroit!

Brief business trip - good location; nice placePosted Jan 19, 2015
A very lovely place; very comfortable big rooms. I had a free upgrade to a suite which was nice. The windows were poorly insulated in the bedroom and it was 5 degrees outside, but they had a space heater to make up for it. Very friendly front desk staff and shuttle driver. Breakfast was fine, although nothing terribly special. Only down side was that they are in two buildings and I had to cross an alley between the building where I was staying and the main building with the coffee, bkfst, etc. I would definitely stay there again if I were going to Detroit.
