The Inn at St. John's
In an upscale suburb halfway between downtown and Ann Arbor, this former seminary and Archdiocese of Detroit headquarters reopened as a 118-room boutique hotel in 2006. A sense of peace still imbues the property, which includes an Italianate medieval chapel that can host 300 guests. Rooms boast 12-foot-high ceilings, beds draped with an inviting mountain of pillows, granite countertops in bathrooms, and views of woods and the hotel’s 27-hole golf course.
Room to Book: Ambassador Suites feature separate dining rooms and balconies that overlook the manicured garden.
