Where to Stay in Detroit






Detroit has some great lodging options for your visit there. Our recommendations include:

Inn on Ferry St.: Located at 84 E. Ferry St. in the Midtown area, this is a lovely inn/B&B consisting of four beautifully restored Victorian mansions and two coach houses that were built between 1886 and 1892. It is a two block walk to the Detroit Institute of Art. The rooms are lovely and well-appointed. There is free parking, free WiFi, a full breakfast buffet, access to the business center, complimentary cookies, coffee and tea plus use of Shinola bikes. My favorite was a free shuttle service within a five mile radius.  I was able to take the shuttle to dinner and not have to fight parking!!

Aloft Hotel: Another good hotel option is the newly opened Aloft, located at 1 Park Ave., in the historic David Whitney Building. It has a sleek, contemporary design in a beautifully restored building.

Also just read about Honor and Folly in the WSJ. You migh check out this unique, two-room Inn in Corktown. It is decorated with items made by Detroit and Midwest-based designers and artisans. 2132 Michigan Ave.
