The staff and service at the Bell Tower was wonderful. I LOVE this location since my daughter lives on campus at U of M. They have free valet service, too. The rooms are a bit older, but the bed is super comfy and the bathroom is redone. I'd highly recommend staying here.

We had a wonderful stay. The rooms were very comfortable and nicely appointed. The complementary breakfast in the morning was fantastic. We also really liked how close it was to campus, so we could walk where we needed to go.

What were they thinking when they assigned me to room 218? Did I look like someone who was getting too much sleep? Was I being punished for some transgression? The room looked very nice when I came in. Yes, there were annoyances... Really? No free outlets by the bed? "free" internet in the "you get what you pay for" column.... More

I am sorry again, as I mentioned yesterday, that you were awoken by the exterior noise. As I mentioned yesterday as well, we are in the process of purchasing sound proof windows so our guests are not affected by any noise. Regards, DeWayne Grann General Manager More

Loved the location right next to campus which meant I didn't need to rent a car. The staff recommended a local transportation company that was very responsive and on time for to/from airport. Staff was very friendly and helpful with restaurant suggestions all within walking distance. Room had very nice remodeled bathroom and rest of room was clean but could... More

The hotel and overall experience was superb. Things were clean and comfortable and the people who work there were kind and helpful. The only thing we didn't like was that our headboard was on the same wall as the elevator, meaning we could hear the elevator constantly. I would definitely recommend the romance package for couples as well!

This is a very clean and comfortable hotel in great proximity to the best of what Ann Arbor has to offer. The staff was courteous, the room was very clean and the bath was classy. I also enjoyed peace and quiet when it was time to call it a day.

I had made my reservations 4 months prior for 4 rooms hoping that the hotel could be the place where my friends and I stayed while in town for an event. 2 days prior to my check in day I received a very rude and unwarranted voicemail from the general manager saying, without notice, that he was canceling my reservation...

You are correct. We have very strict noise policies and are skeptical of groups that traditionally focus on the local bars. I also agree that you did not fit the stereotypical "bachelorette party". You handled yourselves very well. We strive to maintain a hotel that our guests can count on for a good night of sleep. Unfortunately, a flag was... More

The Bell Tower is just steps away from the University and the great shops and restaurants that surround the campus. The hotel is clean, the bathrooms are fantastically updated, and the beds are comfy. The hotel and some decor is old--but classic. Having complimentary valet and breakfast are always a plus. We'll definitely stay at the Bell Tower again.

Great location right next to UM campus. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was a little tight, but it was clean and comfortable. Overall, I was very happy with our choice of the Bell Tower Hotel.
