Our recent stay exceeded all expectations. We booked 3 rooms for the weekend, since I had stayed at the Bell Tower 1 day per month over the past 2 years. My family was very impressed with the hotel and found the valet parking very convenient and quick - even though it was a busy weekend. I highly recommend the Bell... More

On our past visits to Ann Arbor, we have always stayed in one of the chain properties but were happy to make a reservation at the Bell Tower for what may be a last visit due to graduation. We were so pleased with the comfort, convenience and staff at this peoperty. Located within walking distance of the University and all... More

I graduated from the University of Michigan and enjoy going back to visit Ann Arbor whenever I can. Over the years, I've stayed in many hotels around campus and i can say without a doubt that this is the best place to stay. It may be pricier than off-campus options, but the location makes up for it. It is right... More

This is a gem of a hotel in the center of Ann Arbor. We enjoyed it thoroughly, and the breakfast was a very pleasant surprise. Little but thoughtful amenities made the stay even better, such as lemon water in the lobby and a New York Times (even the expensive Sunday version) in the morning. Staff were very friendly, all around.... More

I am sorry that there were some issues with your booking. I can assure you that we research every issue we have control over. We may not share information with guests if there is a mistake from third party sites. I don't think it does anyone any good to speak negatively about a vendor. Also, each of our suites have...

We were greeted by the valet and also the front desk clerk upon arrival. Out room was on the 3rd floor - the hotel was very clean and the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. We weren't there to see the view from our room (which were other roof tops) since we only stayed one night. The continental breakfast was excellent... More

We had a room and a suite, I would not say in a suite on the first floor next to elevator for this amount ever again:( The other room was very nice and quiet, clean. I would definitely stay again for the location and accessibility. Very friendly staff and clean.

I highly recommend The Bell Tower to anyone visiting Ann Arbor, especially the university. It is small and intimate, with a friendly and accommodating staff. The rooms are quiet and very comfortable, the bathrooms brand new. Many nice touches: chocolates and bottled water by the beside every evening, and the New York Times delivered to your door every morning. I... More

The New York Times delivered in the early a.m. just outside the door - fantastic. The breakfast room was quiet, with cool retro art posters and a very decent breakfast, included. Very nice shower, everything in the room of very good quality.

The hotel was great. Hotel has an old school feel; you use a real key to get in and out of your room. Staff was pretty efficient. I had an issue with the iron in my room and they sent a new one pretty quickly. The breakfast had a good selection. The location is perfect if you want to be... More
