Historic & cozy

Great service & room's, the free shuttle around town was great and if you get a particular driver you can get an in depth knowledge of the area. The only drawback is of there being no microwave or mini - fridge in the room's, but the staff will let you use the main kitchen if needed, it is a boutique hotel, other than that I would definitely stay again and highly recommend.

Tiger game awesome alternative to "chain hotel"

Bed and breakfast that accepts kids. Love it! Kids loved the buffet breakfast, great breads, fruit, scrambled eggs ... shuttle (that we weren't even aware of) took us to Tiger Stadium, so we didn't have to drive. Fantastic!

Weekend getaway

It is a beautiful place to stay. My only complaint was our room was next to the front door and it was noisy. The shuttle service was excellent and the staff was great! I would stay again or recommend.

Great place to stay in Detroit

This hotel was great. I only got to stay about 8 hours there, but I was very comfortable, they had everything I needed, and the room was really nice. It's a historic hotel, and the outside is great and the rooms are really nice and not cookie-cutter. The staff went out of their way to make sure I had a good stay, and I think I appreciated that the most.

Doesn't Get Any Better!

Absolutely fantastic! Everyone was very cordial. The best was free shuttle to and from anywhere you would like to go. No matter the time, the shuttle bus was sent out to pick you up wherever you were in Detroit. No cabs. Best Service. Safe. I will definitely be staying here again if I ever venture back to Detroit.
