The Dearborn Inn, Detroit

The Dearborn Inn, Detroit

The Dearborn Inn, a Marriott Hotel, is a luxurious historic hotel, conceived by Henry Ford, who saw a need for food and accommodations for visitors flying into the nearby Ford Airport. It is located in Metro Detroit at 20301 Oakwood Boulevard in the suburban city of Dearborn. Albert Kahn designed the Dearborn Inn in the Georgian architectural style.

Inspired by a passion for Colonial Revival architecture, Henry Ford commissioned renowned architect Albert Kahn to design The Dearborn Inn, who in 1931 would create a Georgian inn to serve Ford’s Dearborn airport. The Dearborn hotel is now recognized on the National Register of Historic Places and features 231 rooms, including five Colonial guest homes, built in 1937. While thoughtful interior renovations have occurred over the Dearborn hotel’s 82 year history, the exterior has remained the same as Ford’s original vision. Additional features include Edison's, a fine dining restaurant; the Ten Eyck Tavern, a home-style dining establishment; a seasonal outdoor pool; and 17,000 square feet (1,600 m2) of meeting space including the Alexandria Ballroom, which Ford commissioned to satisfy his love of dancing.
