I am so lucky to be able to stay twice in the Fall at the Bell Tower. It's a great hotel and ever so comfy. I have been staying here for the last few years and have enjoyed every trip, even those in the single room.

Great little hotel in the heart of Ann Arbor. Quaint but with all the amenities you'd expect. Staff was friendly, accessible and eager to please. The valet service makes the lack of parking a non-issue.

We offer complimentary valet parking. As a matter of fact, we are the only hotel in downtown Ann Arbor that does not charge $20 - $25 per night for parking. Thank you for your review and we look forward to your next stay with us. DeWayne Grann General Manager More

We love staying at the Bell Tower! The entire staff treats you like family and is so friendly and helpful. Easy walk to anywhere on UM campus and downtown. Quiet street and valet parking with extremely quick retrieval.

The Bell Tower provided a great experience, from being greeted by Luther at the valet park, to the front desk, to the bartender, all the staff were friendly and efficient. Great location. Good beds and quiet rooms.

The first day, breakfast was great. I have fresh squeezed orange juice every day, and I was so excited that you had fresh squeezed. I had maple butter for the first time in my life. The second day after the flood I could not eat your food and went to Starbucks. Ditto for the third morning. Very disappointing.

We look forward to your next stay to sample our breakfast which includes local donuts, local bagels, eggs, potatoes, a bacon or sausage and many other items. Sorry again but we look forward to your feedback... More

We splurged and added a personal day for an otherwise family get together. This was the treat for my wife. For sure the hotel is very nice and the service is crisp. Location is great. Our room did have a "view" but not one we would wish for. The bed was very good and the room was very clean and... More

We are offering fresh eggs, potatoes, a meat, cereal, yogurt, toast (including raisin bread), local donuts, local bagels, oatmeal and fresh fruit.

If you are looking for a hotel that provides the perfect combination of charm and location the Bell Tower Hotel hits all the right notes. Located right in the heart of the Michigan campus you truly do not need a car once you arrive. Everything is within easy walking distance.

on my last visit i really enjoyed the breakfast, but for my recent one the selections were very nominal. the choices were even different from one morning to the next. If you are offering a free breakfast then be proud of your decision and serve a breakfast that serves you well

I am sorry that our breakfast did not exceed your expectations. It is an awesome atmosphere with great food. I will pass this on the eves, the restaurant that provides the breakfast. They use top of the line ingredients but could add a few more items. Thank you for your review. DeWayne Grann General Manager More
