The only reason I didn't give this place an excellent rating was: 1. lack of parking, and 2. the facilities need to be updated. We had a 2 bedroom "loft" unit that advertised a fireplace (true) and two bedrooms (also true). The fireplace, however, was a wood burning fireplace with no wood. This was a disappointment, considering how nice a warm fire would have been on our cold visit. The master bedroom was comfortable, but the bathroom was small and with only one small sink / counter. The second bedroom was in a loft with it's own bathroom on the second level. The entire facility, grounds included, are quite dated and tired looking. This is not up to the standards of other Residence Inns I've stayed at; it has more of a ski lodge feel in an urban setting. We arrived late and consequently had to park three buildings away, due to the lack of available spaces.
On the flip side, every employee I dealt with was friendly, professional and always had a genuine smile and pleasant words. The lady in the breakfast area was very attentive and happy, far better than others I've encountered in similar positions. The breakfast itself, although offering much the same items as similar hotels, was a better quality. The warm foods were actually warm and they had a good flavor. The location of the hotel is convenient, just off I-94 (you can't hear or see the traffic) and the drive to downtown Ann Arbor is very easy and short, less than ten minutes.
Would I stay here again? Yes, but I feel it's a bit pricey for the physical condition of the property. The bottom line is, if you can get what you feel is a reasonable price, don't hesitate to stay here. The location is good and the employees help make it worth it.
