Our son's wedding reception was at the hotel. The setup was nice and the food was really good. They were very accommodating. Overall it was really nice. Good rates for the wedding guests and comfortable beds.

Decor is really nice, comfortable bed, spacious room. Coffee and tea bar in the morning was really nice and above what you would expect. Two complaints are the elevators (really small and dindgy), and the walls of the room are very thin. I woke up from people talking in the early morning as they were leaving their room (and I'm...

Most indoor pools are tiny. This is huge and they added the nice touch of having different size beach balls, floating basketball hoops and noodles for anyone to use. Made the pool way more fun for everyone. Room was clean, nice, great location. Had nice bar and we had a great breakfast in their restaurant. Would pick this over Weber... More

Check in was courteous and efficient It was nice to be greeted with champagne Nice to have complimentary coffee as we exited I was disappointed with the view from my room.. NO VIEW.. thus I think a roomrate should be a ittle less than even the standard rate. I suggest $10 or $20 less. We had the alley, airconditioner view..... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the Kensington, despite the makeover going on all around my room in my hall. Staff was courteous and when my flight was cancelled unexpectedly and I needed a place to stay for one more night, Kensington staff found me a room despite the hotel being pretty much booked for the day. Great time at... More

The customer service, especially the front desk (Alyssa). They make me feel like I am at home when away from home! The pool/sauna is superior and I feel this property is the best place to stay in the Ann Arbor area.

This hotel was clean, quiet and overall very good. The manager was great! The king bed was very comfortable. The only minor complaint was the chair in the room was incredibly uncomfortable. The hotel was well managed and we enjoyed the complimentary New York Times.

Our entire experience at the Kensington was wonderful now that it has been revamped. The only reason I am not giving it the highest rating is because I think the food menu in the restaurant needs to have a few more healthy items added for late nite eats!
