I stayed here for several nights in August with my husband. We felt like the overall experience was acceptable, but if we had to go back to Ann Arbor again, we might do more sleuthing to find another option. Here are the pros and cons.
Pros: Really friendly and helpful front desk staff. Excellent customer service and genuinely nice people.
Given the large number of guests, the hotel's common areas including the breakfast area are very very clean and well maintained. I was impressed.
Housekeeping staff was very nice and friendly.
Cons: I'm 5'8 and...I was too tall to go on the gym's eliptical machine without hitting my head on the ceiling in the gym. If hitting my head hadn't left me concussed, I'm pretty sure that the overpowering smell of chlorine from the ajacent indoor pool would have done me in. In other words, the gym wasn't able to meet my needs
Think long and hard about a first floor room if you don't like the smell of chlorine. Some of my relatives were on this floor and they were pretty overwhelmed by the smell.
Our room was maintained (bed made) but not cleaned (e.g. the bathroom sink wasn't cleaned) on a daily basis by the housekeeping staff. I'm not sure if this is common practice so this isn't really a criticism, but just something to note. I would prefer a hotel with more thorough and regular cleaning.
Our room had some issues with dampness from the air conditioning. I didn't really notice this until the end of my stay, but the air conditioning unit caused moisture which made my suitcase (which I put on the luggage rack near the air conditioner) quite damp. Upon closer inspection, the whole wall area was somewhat damp and seemed a bit moldy.
So, in sum, it was an okay visit, with some friendly and kind and helpful staff which still left some things to be desired.
