The Dearborn Inn


The Dearborn Inn, located at 20301 Oakwood Boulevard in Dearborn, Michigan, was conceived by Henry Ford, who saw a need for food and accommodations for visitors flying into the nearby Ford Airport. Designed by famed architect Albert Kahn, the Dearborn hotel was intended to be a stately inn with Georgian architecture and, upon its opening in July 1931, it became the first airport hotel in the country.
