Reviewed 14 October 2013

We stayed for 2 nights at the Historic Dearborn Inn. We chose this location due to its proximity to Detroit & Ann Arbor. The hotel is about 25 min to downtown Detroit & about 35 min to Ann Arbor. The hotel was built in the 1930's commissioned by Henry Ford in a Colonial Revival style architecture. The hotel is fairly large with rooms inside the main building & 5 replica homes on the grounds. We asked for a quiet room & were given one in the Whitman house. The homes are exact replica's of the famous people they are named after. The homes are accessed through the grand lobby out into the beautiful courtyard & follow the sidewalk around. The courtyard is stunning with lovely landscape & a gazebo. Many weddings are held here. Our room was very quaint, clean & spacious. The room had a king bed, dresser, fireplace, closet, small frig & coffee maker. The bathroom was small with a pedestal sink but they added a table with shelves for extra storage. Our room was dark & quiet. But the house itself can be noisy when doors are slamming & people moving around upstairs. Luckily we had respectful neighbors. There are 2 restaurants on site. We ate at Edison's & our meal was very good. The service was fantastic in all our encounters. The hotel is located a few minutes away from the Henry Ford Museum. There is parking outside the replica homes so you won't have to walk through the lobby each time. Every evening they had fresh local warm apple cider for free in the lobby. I was disappointed they didn't have free coffee in the mornings. Coffee & breakfast are for purchase.

We stayed four nights over the labor day weekend. Our room was in the main building and was clean and comfortable. The grounds are nice and the hotel's history was interesting. Its a perfect location for The Henry Ford and related attractions. The downtown Dearborn area is close and has enough restaurants to choose from. We had trouble deciding on this hotel vs. downtown Detroit. So glad we chose this. It was convenient to everything we wanted to do. Stay was great.

Room Tip: Ask for the main building...

We stayed here for our wedding night on Oct. 5th, 2012, and it was really a great experience. The staff was so helpful in letting my father check in for us so we could just drive around back and go right into the Patrick Henry house and our room. We got the romance package which is very nice and includes breakfast in the morning, either in the room or in the restaurant. We chose the room service option. Due to the fact that we got there so late after our reception, we didn't really enjoy any of the amenities, but the food was great, the suite was clean and very beautiful. I was surprised to find not one, but two full bathrooms as part of the suite! Really lovely and amazing rooms. We are staying again in a colonial suite for our 1-year anniversary as well!

The entrance and lobby are luxurious, but don’t be surprised if you are assigned a room in a separate, more modest building. We were in the McGuffey Building (as in the McGuffey Reader) with a book-theme. The outer doors have seen better days and one whiff of the well-used “smoker’s outpost” might make you question your choice of hotels, but don’t be discouraged. And don’t look for an elevator to the second floor because there isn’t one.

We selected the Henry Ford package that includes two tickets per person to either the museum, Greenfield Village, or factory tour. That’s two tickets per person, per day. What a deal! We arrived well before check-in time, but were able to pick up our tickets at the hotel and head over to do a half-day at Greenfield Village. We were staying three nights, and after questioning me as to how many Henry Ford tickets we actually needed, the helpful desk clerk suggested a more inexpensive rate for the third night to save money and avoid having extra tickets. (We did Greenfield Village in a day and a half, the museum in one day, and the factory tour the morning we checked out.)

We left our car parked at the hotel and took the complimentary shuttle to and from The Henry Ford. You do a lot of walking and it helps to not have to walk to the parking lot after a long day.

The breakfast buffet (included in the package rate) was awesome. We ate dinner at the restaurant one night, and at the bar the other two nights. The bar is a little more casual.

The pool was wonderful. Extremely large and well maintained.

We loved the historic aspect of the hotel, including a curious abandoned building frozen in time.

We had no issues with the room itself, but there was some door slamming and loud, late-night talking in the hallways, but it’s not the hotel’s fault. I suspect this is more of an issue on the weekend, when they host a lot of weddings.

All in all, a very satisfactory experience.

The hotel goes back to the 1930's and the decor reflects its past. It has obviously been modernized, but still retains the flavor of the 30's. We ate in the tavern and our hostess could not have been more cordial or helpful. The food was fantastic and reasonably priced, considering the quantity. The staff were all helpful & friendly. The only disappointment was the room. It was clean & comfortable, but EXTREMELY small. There was barely enough room to move around without banging into the furniture. If you plan on going there, you should ask what the square footage of the room is that you are planning on using. Our room was approximately 110 S/F and that is being generous.

We first stayed at the Dearborn Inn more than 40 years ago. It is a lovely now as it was then. The staff were friendly and helpful. We stayed for three days and enjoyed the property and area. The hotel is within one-half mile from the Henry Ford Museum, Greenfield Village and the Ford Factory tour. The grounds of the hotel are lovely. We enjoyed our meals in the restaurant.
The area is very safe. Each day I walked from the hotel past the Henry Ford/Greenfield Village to Michigan Avenue. Excellent sidewalks. Michigan Avenue has many restaurants, a wonderful fresh food market and night clubs. We are returning there again in October prior to a flight to Italy.

Room Tip: We always try to stay on the upper floors. Quiet and close to the lounge for Marriott Platiunm and...

This hotel is situated only a few blocks from the Henry Ford Museum. You can even hear the train whistle. There is a great restaurant in the hotel with affordable meals. We ate lunch during our stay and really enjoyed all the offerings. Everything we ordered was delicious. The hotel grounds are huge. We stayed in a basic king bed room that wasn't large, but we weren't in the room for much time. It was adequate for what we needed. Everything was clean, the bathroom still had the historic tile in it which added to the ambiance. We also saw inside one of the cottages which was very nice. It is beautiful and the perfect place for a family or group to stay.
