I left a week ago with a rash from this tub, for which I now need to see a doctor. The rest of the...

Great building, wonderful staff, great rooms. Fabulous healthy breakfast! More like a 4/5 star English boutique hotel than the usual America generic rubbish! I'd stay here again in heartbeat if I ever come back to Detroit!!

Very pleasant stay, lots of character and fantastic location if you need to be near the District of Detroit. Free parking, free WiFi and free quality breakfast. The complimentary shuttle to and from the Baseball game was just another bonus that puts this hotel over the top! This was my first visit at the Inn on Ferry buy certainly not...

After being away from Detroit for over 30 years this was an incredible experience! Beautiful homes, no matter which one you stay in, they are all gorgeous. The staff is incredible and Craig and the others drove us where we needed to go in the hotel shuttle. We could walk to many places and were a short drive from the...

I would have rated this excellent except for the A/C. My room was very hot. The room was so pretty. The color scheme was so warm and the bathroom was huge. It had a jacuzzi and I had wished I had more time to enjoy it all. I will definitely go back.

Picture yourself walking up the front walk to a large mansion, putting the key in the door and entering a large foyer/sitting room and then going up the massive wooden staircase to the bedroom. That's the reality of staying at the Inn on Ferry. It really is a very nice hotel with great service (as stated before in a lot...

We were drawn to this accommodation by the unique set up of it being several historic homes and carriage houses, and the rave reviews and were not disappointed. Free parking behind the homes and in walking distance to the Detroit Institute of Art as well as the restaurant of the year! Room was lovely and comfortable, in fact the best...
