The building is old but the rooms are great! Plus they are renovating so I imagine the decor will even get better. Perfect spot to walk to the main thoroughfares. Valet parking is efficient. Breakfast offered as well.

This is an old hotel, but that is no reason for it to look dingy, Carpeting and linens need changing. Needs some better lighting in lobby, paint around elevator areas, and the breakfast room needs a good makeover. Breakfast was not great. This vintage hotel is a great location, but I guess I am just used to a more modern...

We are in the process of redecorating the guest rooms and hallways. We are also in the process of creating some new concepts for the restaurant and lobby areas. Hopefully you will find the redecorated areas look wonderful during your next visit. We are looking forward to proceeding with all areas of the hotel soon. Regards, DeWayne Grann General Manager

Beautiful boutique hotel very convenient to UM campus. Rooms were in great shape - very clean and well maintained. Bathrooms were looked newly renovated. Staff was friendly and courteous. Only negative - breakfast was mediocre, so if you have time walk over to one of the coffee shops in town instead.

I booked this weekend at the belltower because I have stayed there quite a few times in the past. I love the central location and the ease of getting there. Our room was excellent and the service also excellent. The central location provided a quick access to everything I needed to get to. This was especially true because the temperature...

Love the Bell Tower..wonderful and friendly staff...centrally located so you can walk everywhere ...rooms are comfortable but nothing fancy (and the moderate price reflects this)...but the breakfast buffet has weakened considerably since restaurant closed

We are working on increasing the items offered on the breakfast buffet. We are considering redesigning it to look like the buffet that the restaurant offered. Thank you for the great review and we look forward to your future input. Sincerely, DeWayne Grann General Manager

Vintage boutique historical hotel with good location to campus and hospital. While bathrooms appeared renovated, the carpets are worn ; everything appears tired. It is clean and ok for a nights stay, but don't expect it to look like the pictures on website.

We are in the middle of redecorating the rooms as I write. The first two floors will be complete within the next month but there are a handful of completed rooms in use now as well. I look forward to seeing your next review when staying in the new rooms. I am sure you will agree that the rooms will...

My wife & I have stayed at the Bell Tower Hotel in the past for our anniversary. The proximity to Hill Auditorium is tough to beat & we go down for the Ann Arbor Folk Fest. This year when we showed up at the hotel, they had absolutely no reservation for us. We had booked it months in advance. Nothing...

It was an enjoyable and high quality experience. The rooms were very comfortable and the breakfast was very convenient. Everything worked perfectly and was very clean. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

It had been quite a few years since we stayed at our favorite hotel in Ann Arbor. It's a great location with easy walk to State Street and all it has to offer. Love the charm of a boutique type hotel. The restaurant was closed from a recent issue, but still worth visiting.

Very nice staff, room just fine. Very good location next to the University and close to shopping and restaurants. Coffee maker was in the bathroom which I find unappealing. The breakfast buffet was down stairs and down a hall in a far conference room. Just so-so. Didn't hate the hotel but didn't love it either.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. I am sorry that the breakfast is located in the lower level. We are working on locating it in the restaurant but have not come to an agreement with the owner yet. We look forward to updating the breakfast items in the near future. Regards, DeWayne Grann
