Stayed at this hotel multiple times over the last year. Staff is top notch. Rooms have just been renovated. Great service every time. Lobby has also been recently updated. Excellent breakfast with numerous choices. Highly recommend this hotel. Very close to everything in Ann Arbor.

I booked 2 rooms at this hotel for my daughters 14th birthday as she wanted to swim with her friends. This was a very nice hotel, the lobby was very inviting with a fireplace, coffee and hot chocolate available at all times. The pool was very nice and not crowded. The rooms were very clean. The continental breakfast was very... More

Stayed here for a hockey tournament. A few things for my hockey friends: Be prepared to buy your own breakfast elsewhere. Even though they had weeks to prepare for a hotel booked with hockey kids, they ran out of breakfast items. If you do hit up the breakfast area with the kids, be sure to do it before the cutoff...

Nice clean hotel with a large pool. Coffee, tea, and hot chocolate always available in the lobby. Very handy to the highway and only 5-7 minutes to Crisler Arena and University Stadium. The rooms were very small and had a bit of a strange layout. The sink/vanity area was in the room so you were brushing and flossing your teeth... More

I could hear my neighbor sneeze and cell phone ring! When the made in the hallway was knocking on someone else's door I couldn't tell if it was my door or not. The wifi was spotty and I was in room 213 right near the elevator where you would expect the signal to be strong. The front desk staff were... More

We checked in for one night. You walk inside and the lobby is all under construction. The elevator floor was wood and I believe cardboard. Breakfast was limited and the desk never stocked it so everything ran out quickly. Room was okay but they place everyone on the same floor & next to each other.(only a dozen or so staying... More

That was my worst experience in a Marriott hotel. I decided to save some money staying in a Fairfield instead of a Courtyard and I deeply regret my decision. The front lobby is being rebuilt, as I write, and the entire place is a complete mass. The room doors are also being replaced, so the hotel is noisy, dirty and... More

Renovations are being done in the lobby of this hotel. There was no mention of it when I booked. They claimed their website showed this information. I just checked again to see, no mention what so ever that I could find. When booking hotels always ask if pool and hot tub are open during your stay. Now I'm also going... More

This is a very nice hotel; very clean; excellent staff. Very nice breakfast buffet. Heidi, who checked us in, was wonderful! So helpful and accommodating. The only downside of this hotel is that the rooms are quite small. They do not have any two-queen rooms----only two-double rooms. They are fine for 1 or 2 persons, but quite cramped with 4.... More
