We had a suite that overlooked the cute little shops and at night we were able to walk around downtown and see all the lights. The check in staff was efficient and didn't miss a beat. We walked into our suite and they had cupcakes for my birthday and a hand written note wishing me the best. We enjoyed a... More

My grand daughter and I had an awesome experience at the Townsend Hotel from the friendly and helpful staff at check-in to the warm chocolate chip cookies and milk at bed time. We loved walking around the beautiful area to the shops, restaurants and park. Once we gave the car to the valet we never needed it again. Everything we... More

I stayed in the hotel the night before my wedding day. The staff is incredible and the rooms are absolutely gorgeous. Shout-out to Bradley who was very helpful in the morning when my bridesmaids and vendors began arriving. If you book here, you will not be disappointed!

Came here with 3 of my girl friends for afternoon tea. High tea was served in the lounge/lobby area which was very quiet and nicely decorated. The set up was great with beautiful china.....felt like you were taken back to a Victorian era. A few things that I was not impressed with was the tea menu....or lack there of. When... More

My husband had a meeting at the hotel last week and we spent two nights there. I wish it could have been longer; all of the staff were friendly, respectful, and most helpful. The room was lovely with a sumptuous bathroom. We had cocktails one afternoon and a wonderful breakfast as well. Highly recommend if you are planning a trip... More

This hotel is immaculate. The staff has gone above and beyond. The rooms are spotless, well maintained and very comfortable. I am here for business and we usually stay in Dearborn. This was such a pleasant surprise. The neighborhood is wonderful. Such a quaint and beautiful area. Very safe and has a home town feel.

I stayed here this past Friday with 3 girlfriends and a 1 year old. The hotel was beautiful and all of the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. The hotel is in a very charming part of the city, with much to see and do within walking distance. I would recommend this spot to anyone looking for a special experience!

Let me start by saying that while I booked through Expedia, I made a point to call the hotel directly almost immediately after booking. I booked the "luxury suite" because I wanted a balcony. So when I saw that they were advertising that "most" of these suites have balconies, I called to request that they please make sure I get... More
