If you're visiting the University, you can't find a more convenient location than the Bell Tower. It's right on campus and just one block over from lots of restaurants and shops so no rental car is needed if you aren't driving to Ann Arbor. The hotel is a cross between that and a bed and breakfast, serving a perfectly adequate hot and cold breakfast buffet in the Mercy's restaurant space on the ground floor. We visited on a Monday when Mercy's was closed, so the staff directed us to the excellent Sava's around the corner. While the Bell Tower is certainly not luxurious, it is clean and comfortable and fine for a brief visit, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. We would stay here again.
