Designed by famous architect John V. Smith, the inn was completed in 1876 as a private home for philanthropist John Harvey and his family. At several times throughout history, the inn reigned as the most expensive private home in Detroit. A recent painstaking renovation has restored the building to its original glory with the same careful attention to detail for which its architect was admired. The Inn at 97 Winder achieved acceptance into the National Register of Historic Places in 1991.
The inn is centrally located across the street from Little Caesars Arena and Comerica Park, three blocks from Ford Field, a short walk from the Fox Theatre and only minutes from many other popular Detroit attractions.
