I was impressed with the charm of the decor and cleanliness of this property. There are antiques scattered all over and many lovely twists and turns with small gathering areas. The hotel is a bit worn (as I would expect from a well used property) and staffed by very friendly and attentive employees. The lobby was in "remodel mode" as they are waiting on delivery of a new front desk, but service was uninterrupted. We had trouble with our TV remote. The front desk gal brought us a new one right away, but it did not work either. She informed us that the maintenance man was involved in a large project but would visit us as soon as he was finished. About four hours later we called the front desk to inquire and they were very apologetic that it had taken so long. Their maintenance staff came right away with a 3rd remote which worked beautifully. He also gave us 2 coupons for free breakfast as an apology for our trouble. We were surprised and very happy! We stayed for two nights. After our first night my husband inquired about looking at some of their suites. We were in a basic king room. They gave him key cards and allowed us to tour three of their suites. It was fun and they were lovely! They also allowed us to switch to an Executive King suite for our second night which was wonderful. We had brought a keyboard along to do some music rehearsal and the Executive Suite gave us much more room which we needed. The bed was comfortable, the bedding was crisp and clean, and both rooms were very clean. A big shout out to their housekeeping staff because not every hotel is as clean as this one! The restaurant is lovely with several cozy areas and the food was satisfactory. They allowed my musician husband to play a few songs on their piano. The hot tub was out of order during our stay which was disappointing, but things do break down and we were not upset. The pool area was very clean with towels set out for guests, and the water was warm. The grounds are not large, but there is an inner courtyard that has three pretty gazebos and a small pond with koi fish. Our visit was in December so there was nothing blooming but I can imagine in the warmer months it is just beautiful with flowers and plants. Also, their check out time is 12:00 noon which is later than most hotels we have stayed in. We were in Dearborn to visit the Henry Ford Museum and attend Holiday Nights at Greenfield Village. The price of this property is a great value and well worth what is provided in return. We are delighted to have discovered this gem and will be staying here when we visit the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village. less
