We returned to the Bell Tower and had a very good experience. The change of floor from 2nd to 3rd and the lower number rooms were fresh and bright. What a difference a small change can make. Staff was friendly as always and the welcome at the curb makes you glad you are staying there.

Best location for near UM campus. Could use to up its game, though. They need to fix their wireless system (is inconsistent and never works right), and the common rooms downstairs (breakfast room, gym) are a bit dingy. The staff at the desk have improved, fortunately.

Your hotel is very well located and your staff are all very nice. High marks for your people! The property, though, needs a complete renovation. My room was very tattered and tired. Also, your website shows a restaurant but it is completely closed. I stayed with you once before, I think in 2012 or 2013, and your restaurant was closed...

Hotel has location but room had no headboards on the bed, no drapes just flimsy white shade, no phone service on either of two phones and the toilet was low and not ADA compliant. Much too expensive for what was received. And no correction offered. never again for us.

I am sorry that our new furniture is not in the renovated rooms yet. We are in the middle of redecorating the rooms and there was a shipping problem so the new furniture is delayed but the rest of the room has been renovated. Sorry again but I look forward to your next stay and your assessment of the project....

Pleasant decor, friendly staff, convenient location. Beds are not great--lots of sway; did not care for coffee in same room as toilet. Plumbing was quirky. Breakfast was very basic, and served in a windowless basement room. Decor was lovely, rooms clean, staff excellent. Valet parking was free.

I apologize for the temporary breakfast location. We are determining the best layout for the restaurant area before renovating. As soon as we have a plan, we will renovate that space and get breakfast moved to that space immediately. Sorry that the area is not ideal. We look forward to getting it back up there as soon as possible. DeWayne...

I always try to stay at the Bell Tower. It feels like a home away from home, close to my office, great restaurants, and the staff is always friendly and helpful. After many years spending time there, some of there are now friends.

Look into the efficiency of the hot water heater - took over 7+minutes for water to warm up. Such a waste of a resource. Time for tankless? And the barn-style door to the bathroom was poorly designed and did not function well. Left it 1/2 open most of the time. Need to be able to close all drapes. The staff...

Thank you for reviewing your recent stay. I will have our maintenance manager review each bathroom door to ensure they are all working properly. They are new doors and should be working 100% properly. Thank you again for your review and we look forward to your return visit to the Bell Tower. Sincerely, DeWayne Grann General Manager

Excellent place to stay. Very friendly and helpful staff. The only recommendation would be to have a slightly expanded and fresher breakfast. The eggs were a little rubbery and the donuts were dried out.

We are reviewing our breakfast options but am surprised about the donuts since they are fresh every day from a local company, Washtenaw Diary. The eggs are also cracked fresh every day from our kitchen. We don't save either after that day so they are fresh each morning. Thank you for bringing this to my attention and I will investigate...
