DETROIT, MI--(Marketwired - Nov 11, 2015) - Escape to a hotel that is rich in history when you stay at The Dearborn Inn, A Marriott Hotel. You'll find all the details about the hotel's vibrant past and its unique Colonial Homes on its new History Module.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Dearborn Inn boasts two State of Michigan Historic Markers. A place of tradition and charm, the hotel offers an array of guest accommodations on its 23-acre campus; along with distinctive colonial architecture amid a park-like setting. These attributes provide guests with a sense of place, and help to create memorable stays, regardless of the occasion.

The hotel's conception dates back to the late 1920's, as Henry Ford saw a need to build a hotel close to the growing Ford Airport. He commissioned the famed architect Albert Kahn to design one of the world's first airport hotels, and the Dearborn Inn opened its doors in 1931, with Mr. Ford as the first registered guest.

Today this Dearborn hotel offers a unique weekend getaway for locals and out-of-towners alike. Guests can also stay in a guest room located in one of our five replica homes of famous Americans located on the hotel grounds, including Walt Whitman, Edgar Allan Poe and Patrick Henry.

Plus, for grooms and brides-to-be, you'll find an ideal wedding location at our Dearborn, Michigan hotel.
