We stayed several days to visit mentors and family. Staff helped with valet parking for our lunch and dinner guests, keep our room available when our arrival was weather delayed and helps with updated referrals. We will definitely stay here for our next visit. The rooms could use some updates... New carpeting, paint but we hope the style will stay... More

This is best location in town. It is on the edge of campus, so you can visit any part of central campus. It is only a few minute walk to main street so you have access to downtown. There are probably 100 restaurants of all variety within walking distance.

Thank you for writing a review about your recent stay. It is nice to utilize our complimentary valet parking and walk everywhere you need. We have the luxury of being on campus and steps away from shops and restaurants. Thanks again and have safe travels. Regards, DeWayne Grann General Manager More

The hotel was fairly nice. The carpet still reminds me of 40 years ago but the rooms were updated. The showers were re-done. No tub exists in bathroom but there is a television set in the mirror. Who would have thunk. Staff was friendly and helpful. You can't beat the location with regard to campus. Breakfast was complimentary but it... More

You assumed an enormous liability by failing to supply a rubber mat for the shower. We asked the desk, later the housekeeper for one; did not receive one though promises were made both times. For seniors, the polished tiles of the shower were very slippery when soapy.

I am sorry that we did not handle this situation properly. Depending on the room type, we should have had a mat under the sink in your room. There are a few rooms that don't allow a mat to be stored though. This should have been easily resolved by us bringing a mat to your room. This is a common... More

The staff was great! The front desk had an issue with not having a room ready at 1pm, (they said 4pm(!!), and we had a formal event 75 miles away and needed to get ready for that). But they recovered and were gracious about it. The valet was always great, and the restaurant staff was good, too.

This is one of those rare hotels that is just nice, quiet, and comfortable. The rooms don't have a microwave or fridge but what they do have is one of the softest beds I've ever slept in. We usually wake up sore from the stiff beds most hotels have but not the Bell Tower! They had umbrellas in the room,... More

The Bell Tower was an extremely friendly, accommodating and perfectly situated location to the town, accessing both the college and the downtown of Ann Arbor. The staff was more than helpful in navigating the campus of Michigan, from providing bus apps, to calling for car service to the airport. Definitely will return again.

Very friendly staff, nice room, and a very convenient location. No details were left unattended, it was a rainy day and there were umbrellas in our room, which we happily used. We would happily stay here again.

Perfect location for exploring Ann Arbor. My family has stayed at the Bell Tower for many years during the Ann Arbor Art Fest. This visit was with my two young boys and we had no complaints! The main lobby had friendly service, a large bowl of apples and lemon water which was a nice refresher after walking around town. Room... More
