Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Built by Henry Ford in 1931 on the grounds of his Ford Motor Company, the Dearborn Inn hosted famous Americans like Thomas Edison and Charles Lindbergh. The AAA 4-Diamond property is a state and federal historic landmark, with the eight buildings that make up the guest lodging giving the acreage a campus-like feel.

Across 23 landscaped acres, guests can choose from accommodations including the Main Inn, two colonial lodges and five colonial guest homes. Traditional guest rooms in the redbrick Main Inn have one king bed or two double beds, desks, armchairs and flat-screen TVs but visitors can upgrade to Concierge Level rooms that are larger, offer the option of pullout sofas and access to a private lounge with free refreshments available throughout the day. Those in need of more space can book one of the colonial revival-style cottages with fireplaces, minifridges and marble bathrooms. Guests can log into Wi-Fi for free in the lobby or get access en suite for $5.95 per day.

All guests have access to the seasonal outdoor pool with an adjacent kiddie pool and can work out in the on-site fitness center year-round. Edison’s, the hotel restaurant, is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, serving American cuisine while the Ten Eyck Tavern is popular for dinner and drinks with inn guests as well as visitors to the museum.
