The “inn” place to be, on midtown Detroit’s historic Ferry Street

The Inn on Ferry Street, centrally located in the East Ferry Street historic district of midtown Detroit, sets the standard for elegant guest quarters and dedicated service. Four lovingly restored Victorian homes and two carriage houses reside just steps from some of Michigan's finest museums, the acclaimed Detroit Medical Center, and Wayne State University. The Inn on Ferry Street is a change of pace from traditional hotels, but still provides deluxe in-room accommodations, as well as a free buffet breakfast and Wi-Fi.

  • Charming, full-service, Victorian-style hotel in historic midtown Detroit
  • 40 unique rooms in four meticulously restored Victorian homes and two carriage houses
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi, hot breakfast, and shuttle service within five-mile radius of the hotel
  • Private conference or parlor space for small-scale business meetings and events
  • Concierge, valet, and room service, plus free parking

Guests choose from among 40 deluxe, superior, or executive rooms. The vintage decor and furnishings differ from room to room and may feature Victorian or Arts and Crafts themes. Standard amenities include an armoire with a 25-inch television, free Wi-Fi, a CD player, and spa-style bath products. Some rooms also feature spacious work areas and whirlpool baths.


Travelers who stay at the Inn on Ferry Street truly feel like house guests in a bygone era. The charming complex of vintage Victorian homes and carriage houses evokes the rich cultural and architectural history of Detroit. The accommodations, however, are unmistakably 21st-century.

Best I've found in Detroit so far!

I have been to Detroit numerous times to visit family and stayed in many mediocre facilities and FINALLY found the place I will return to and happily suggest to others. The staff went out of their way to make sure my stay was very comfortable and relaxing. The room was fairly well appointed and comfy. They have a nice breakfast, free shuttle, great location and a beautiful setting. It is a very nice B&B and I will be back. There were two suggestion I had and they were (for my needs); darker blackout curtains for the room I stayed in and a dresser or something to store folded clothing in (I had to use the desk drawer).

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

If you are a carnivore you MUST head to "Texas De Brazil" a Brazilian type eatery. For the most part go light on the salads and sit back and enjoy the fare!
