Dirty, expensive, cramped, dated. These are just a few of the words I could use to describe my experience with the Kensington Court. Don't let the fancy name fool you. I reserved a room here with the orientation discount. Based on the photos I thought it was nice and the price was good. Foolish me, I didn't check trip advisor... More

I stayed here for three nights at an incredible rate during University of Michigan parent orientation. Located with numerous other hotels just off I-94 - convenient to UM and to highway access to Detroit, Kensington Court strives to be more than just a three star hotel and, at times, they succeed. Rooms are average. The TV is a real pain... More

Recently stayed for the weekend for a wedding. Room was very spacious. Hallways are a little "Shining-esque" they seem to go on and on forever and got lost a few times. Perfect location for nearby UofM, restaurants, and highway.

convenient location -University Michigan just a short drive. Room was smaller than expected for the price, so were the beds. The toilet kept running, which they couldn't or didn't fix. It was a busy weekend, so maybe they didn't have time to fix it. The heat/ cool system is kind of screwy--it was a cold weekend, so a seperate switch... More

This hotel is one of the best locations when attending a graduation at the University of Michigan. A speedy check-in, friendly staff and on the morning of the graduation, they even provided a "grab bag" breakfast ($6.00 extra charge) to take to the stadium. The highway to return to Detroit Airport is literally two minutes from the hotel. Again, Great... More

I stayed for two nights at the Kensington Court Hotel. The check-in staff are helpful and efficient. As I had a car, the hotel was quite convenient. Easy access from the freeway, across the street from a huge shopping center, and only 10' drive from the University and downtown. The location is excellent for someone with a car. The room... More

I attended the Holiday Party on Dec. 3rd. Everthing, from the welcome greeting at the nametag station to the "Thanks for coming" as I left, was outstanding. The holiday decor was elegant but not 'stuffy' and the food stations were all top-notch. The chorus, singing holiday music, added to the festivities. My company has hosted several events here. The entire... More

We recently stayed at Kensington, there is currently construction going on, which was not the problem, the problem was (and not sure if it's only on floor 1) but the beds in the room were horrible, not comfortable or big by any means, I would say maybe a twin size? Also, to turn the fan on at night, (to hear... More
