About Us

In October of 2000, the redevelopment of the main buildings into The Inn at St. John’s Conference Center created spaces for corporate and social conferences, wedding receptions and Catholic celebrations. December of 2005 saw the addition of a Grande ballroom space with room for up to 450 guests. The center features stately Romanesque architecture, beautifully renovated to reflect its heritage; two regal ballrooms showcasing 25-foot ceilings with hand-painted inlays; a breathtaking two-story Atrium room; and twenty-two distinct meeting rooms, each with exterior windows for a bright, comfortable setting.

In January of 2006 The Inn at St. John’s hotel and 5ive Steakhouse and Bar opened for business. With 118 luxury guestrooms, this distinct setting offers all the modern conveniences of a large hotel, but in an intimate setting.

With the launch of The Burger Loft in 2013, the property now offers both upscale and casual dining experiences.

St. John’s golf course began with nine holes in the property’s earliest years and grew to 18 when the golf greens opened to the public in 1979. In the 1990’s, during the property’s redevelopment, nine more were added, creating the 27-hole course that now exists on site.

Today, The Inn at St. John’s continues to offer guests impeccable service and a distinctive ambiance unsurpassed in Southeast Michigan. For meetings, conferences, weddings and a host of important occasions, the legacy of The Inn at St. John’s lives on.
