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

This is a lovely old hotel situated right across from the university campus. It's also well within walking distance to numerous restaurants and bars. Breakfast was very good with lots of choices situated in the former restaurant . It is unfortunate that the restaurant had to close down as I'm sure it added to the popularity of the hotel. Rooms...

Having been a long time resident (student) of the UoM, the Bell Tower Hotel presented a perfect opportunity to enjoy an overdose of nostalgia. The campus is literally steps away from the front door. You can walk down the diag minutes after leaving your room, shop at the M Den around the corner and enjoy all of the great eateries... More

This boutique hotel was pleasant, extremely convenient for a visit to the University of Michigan, and had some luxury features (e.g. tv in the bathroom mirror). It is, however, very expensive. The thermostat was balky, and when I removed the provided hair dryer from the bathroom socket, it turned the bathroom tv off, so there must be some electrical problem.... More

I am sorry to hear about the issue with the hair dryer and bathroom television. We investigated that and found a faulty circuit. That has been replaced and should resolve the problem in the future. Thank you for your review and I apologize for the inconvenience you experienced. Sincerely, DeWayne Grann General Manager More

Such a wonderful hotel. The bed was so comfortable that we actually slept until 10am (which is unheard of in our life). Loved the shower, tv, and heated floor in the bathroom. Close to campus and the main street area. Great continental breakfast. Staff was very friendly. Will definitely be back!

Location cannot be beat. Improvements could be made without great expense. Expected better amenities (guest bathrobes) and products (not even Q-tips!). A hotel of this stature should have an in-room safe.

I am sorry that you missed the amenities the hotel offers. There is an amenity card in the bathroom that lists the amenities that are available to our guests upon request. We also offer bathrobes and in-room safes in all of our upgraded rooms. It sounds like we are able to exceed your expectations (we also offer slippers in our... More

Room was clean and comfortable. I love how updated and modern that bathrooms are. Beautiful hotel. Overall, it was a great place to stay. The location cannot be beat! The only complaint I have is that the website could be more accessible. On the mobile site, I couldn't see check in/out times.

Excellent service, the proximity to UM was a major plus. Will only stay here in future. The valet service was fantastic. The breakfast was satisfying but more cooked vegetarian options are needed. A relaxing atmosphere overall.

Great location, clean comfortable room. We stay here every year for a football game. Central campus location close to shops and restaurants. Easy walk to the stadium. Recommended car service is very reliable.

This is a superbly located hotel in Ann Arbor and quite charming. From some of the reviews people seem to expect Champs Élysées standards in sleepy MI! FREE valet parking on arrival, charming lobby area and beautiful (if small) bathroom with inbuilt TV, free WiFi, complimentary cooked and continental breakfast and NYT. The staff were universally friendly, pleasant and helpful.... More
