Reviewed 17 August 2016

The hotel is clean and convenient but needs revamping. Some of the furnishings are really date. Breakfast is exceptionally boring with very few choices and not very good. Staff were very efficient and ppleasant except the dining room woman was very distracted and forgot she was making us tea. Bed was too soft

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay. I am glad to hear that one of your largest concerns was the decor. We are in the process of addressing that as we speak. We have a few mock up rooms under review and plan to renovate the hotel starting after football this year. All of the rooms...

After hearing about the Bell Tower Hotel for years, I spent three nights in July. I had one of the few rooms with a view of Burton Bell Tower. The bells in this tower are special and wonderful; they set a great mood for the center of the University of Michigan Campus. The Hotel is the right off of the...

I am glad you appreciated the valet service but I am disappointed that you did not rave the desk service. We always want to offer the best service you have ever received. We are planning a renovation project after the football season. We are looking forward to eliminating any decor concerns our guests have. Regards, DeWayne Grann General Manager

Everything was wonderful! The room was nice and comfortable and there was lots of room to spread things out in the bathroom. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Also, the breakfast had REAL EGGS!

We love Ann Arbor and were looking to stay downtown. The Bell Tower was reasonably priced (relatively) and in a fantastic location. The service was great, staff friendly and very accommodating. Rate includes free valet parking and breakfast in the Eve restaurant. Unless you pay, your view is probably going to be the wall of the parking structure next door,...

Lovely hotel with great location & wonderful service. Hope to stay here again. Not a hotel for small children , but perfect for couples & parents of university students. Thank goodness the bell doesn't ring all night, but very charming.

A little known fact is the bells are actually played by musicians, they are not a program. We are lucky to be located next to such an amazing feature in Ann Arbor. Thank you for the review and we look forward to your return visit when in Ann Arbor again. Sincerely, DeWayne Grann General Manager

HAd a wonderful stay. All of the staff are very friendly and helpful. Had an excellent meal at "Eve", the restaurant that is part of the hotel. The room was a bit dated (except for the modern bathroom) but was clean and comfortable. Excellent location. Would most definitely stay there again!

The Bell Tower is in the best location on the Michigan campus. Everything in walking distance. Hotel is very friendly and clean. However, on this particular stay, we did notice a slight odor in our room and I can only attribute it to the a/c running constantly creating some musty smell. Nothing to deter us. Highly recomend a stay here...

The hotel is very nice. Rooms need some updating but the bathrooms must have been recently updated. But please note everything was very clean. Location is excellent. Parking is complimentary and is a very good deal in Ann Arbor. The complimentary breakfast was very good too. The dining area is very modern and delicious. The staff were all very nice!!
