Hotel close to campus

We are travelling to Flint Michigan for a wedding this weekend, but I have always wanted to see the University of Michigan campus. Can you recommend a nice hotel that is close to campus? We will only stay in Ann Arbor one night and will only have a few hours to explore...Thanks for any help you can provide!

There are lots of hotels around Ann Arbor. The Bell Tower Hotel is a boutique hotel in a historic building on the main campus.

If you want something for a bit less money, there are several hotels near Briarwood Mall on the south edge of the city including several suite-type hotels.

The main campus is nice, but be sure to see the North Campus. It's much more scenic and is home to the music, architecture, engineering and art & design schools as well as the Gerald Ford Library.

Not sure which day you'll be in A², but the U of M calendar shows they still have tour slots available for May 26. Check their site for info and to make reservations at www.umich.edu.

The Holiday Inn Express right off the State Street exit is moderately priced and the rooms are nice. Its only about a 5 minute drive down State until you hit Packard.

Thank you all for your tips! We will only be able to stay about 1/2 day on Friday, before heading to Flint for a wedding Saturday night.

Campus Inn and Bell Tower are my favorites if I'm staying right on campus and in walking distance of everything. Enjoy AA, it's a beautiful city and has a lot of character.

Be aware that UofM is spread out around Ann Arbor. It is not really a Campus per se. The college of this is here and the college of that is there, the hospital it over this way and the library over there.
