This hotel was very comfortable and the service was excellent. However, both nights we had trucks making deliveries outside and backing up making a lot of noise. Ok if you are an early riser wanting to wake up at 5:30 or 6 but not much fun otherwise. Very nice and friendly staff and good breakfast though.

I completely understand about the alley noise. We are working on replacing the windows on that side of the hotel to eliminate alley noise. I am sorry we fell short during your last stay. I hope to have the windows replaced before your next stay. Sincerely, DeWayne Grann General Manager More

Nice hotel, Great location. The room was well maintained and the staff were always smiling and greeting at me. The service was beyond my expectation. Thanks for the New York Times newspaper at my door in the morning.I will choose to stay there next time.

My dad and I stay at this hotel ever year for a football game. The location is great, it's right on campus. There's always an included breakfast every morning. The rooms are a fine size and they've started renovations to make them even nicer. On our visit a few weeks ago, the bathrooms had just been re-done. Definitely recommend it... More

The Bell Tower epitomizes what a boutique hotel should be like. The staff is very friendly and always serviced with a smile and a greeting. The rooms are done up nicely and always serviced promptly. You also can not beat the location of this hotel. It is literally right in the middle of campus and can walk to everything. I... More

Perfect stay. Pleasant, warm and welcoming staff. Best location! Right in the heart of Ann Arbor and the University of Michigan. The bathrooms recently redone and fabulous. TV in the bathroom mirror. Free continental breakfast. Parking on premises.

The Bell Tower is the quintessential stay for Ann Arbor! I love the staff, the feel, and the added benefit of breakfast is a new delight for me! The bathrooms are updated and very modern. An added fridge would be just perfect.

Bad enough for me to write a review - to stress how horrible the accommodations were. Many problems ensued: 1) The room had basically no AC in the middle of the summer. 2) The bathroom was so small I could barely fit in it and I basically touched all 4 walls of the shower at once. 3) The bathroom ceiling...

I wanted to sat at the Bell Tower purely for the proximity to the conference I was attending at the University. Location is perfect. So convenient to downtown Ann Arbor and numerous eateries nearby.The photos on the website showed the rooms to be a little dated with old fashioned decor. I was so pleasantly surprised as this was not the... More

Wonderful hotel with a charm that is hard to find; you feel welcomed and pampered from the minute you walk in. Very comfortable and immaculate rooms that make for a great place to come back to at the end of a busy day.

This is a lovely downtown hotel within walking distance to many amenities like the University, restaurants, pubs and unique shops. Our room was well appointed with everything we required. Breakfast was served in the former restaurant with lots of good choices for food. It is unfortunate that the restaurant us now gone as I'm sure it added to the popularity... More
