The Inn On Ferry Street is made up of four beautifully restored Victorian homes and two carriage houses built in the late 1800's and located in Detroit's cultural center. It's a nice location on a charming street. It reminded me of places I've stayed in Europe with it's historic feel and period furnishings. My room was in The Pungs House and it was nicely appointed. I liked that the room had a small coffee maker and included FREE WiFi and breakfast. The bed was very comfortable and the room was quite.
The Reception and breakfast room were located in one of the other houses, a short walk away. The Inn has a pretty dinning room, where it servers a hearty breakfast and nice selection of beverages. Couldn't have asked for more. Other features of the Inn included secured parking and free shuttle service within a 5-mile radius. The staff was friendly and helpful.
One other great thing about The Inn On Ferry Street is it's location. Many of Detroit's best museums are within short walking distance, including the Detroit Institute of Arts and The Detroit Historical Museum. Must sees. Also within walking distance is the campus of Wayne State University which includes two buildings designed by world renowned architect Minoru Yamasaki. Across from the Inn you'll find the beautiful Hecker-Smiley and Charles Lang Freer mansions. The man who donated his art collection to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C in the early 1900's and is housed in the Freer Art Gallery. A few nice restaurants are also within walking distance.
I was told the Inn will be adding a fifth house. I highly recommend The Inn On Ferry Street for your next Detroit stay.
