Can't beat the location of this hotel if you are wondering around Ann Arbor and want to be near central campus. The attached restaurant had a wonderful, funky atmosphere and the dinner food was very good. However, the morning breakfast was limited. The only real disturbance was the loud noise in the early morning when the garbage was collected. Otherwise...

I am sorry that you were disturbed by the alley noise. We just installed soundproof windows on that side of the building so I am surprised you were disturbed by noise. You are right, the restaurant offers excellent food. We are very happy with our partnership. Thanks for your review and we look forward to your future visits. Sincerely, DeWayne...

(We have stayed in larger rooms in this hotel, but I am reviewing the room of my most recent stay. The price of the larger room and smaller room was the same.) The room was very small and basic. The bathroom was tiny! The sink was so small it was hard to wash my face without getting water all over...

I am sorry you experienced problematic WiFi. We have an entirely new WiFi system which should work great. I will have the wireless company out to review the system to ensure it is working properly. We have standard king and rooms with two beds that have larger bathrooms. Please make sure to request one of those rooms during your next...

This is a solid place to stay in Ann Arbor that is right in the heart of things and yet is quiet enough to get a good night's sleep. It's a bit old timey, which is nice too, though the bathrooms are super updated. The breakfast is great too!

It is nice to park your car in our complimentary parking and walk everywhere you need. I am glad you appreciate our newly renovated bathrooms. We spent a lot of time designing a very elegant bathroom. Thank you for your review and your business. We truly appreciate it! Sincerely, DeWayne Grann General Manager

Nice hotel, great location, friendly staff. Traveled as a family of 4 and room was a bit crowded but there was so much in the area we didn't spend a lot of time in the room. Free breakfast was just ok, no variety if you are staying for multiple days. Otherwise, great stay!

A wonderfully centrally located hotel in a great town to visit. Nice appointments and a very friendly and efficient staff. The included breakfast was delicious. I lived in Anb Arbor for years, but staying on campus at The Bell Tower made the town come alive in a new way for me.

Wonderful place to stay. Very accommodating and the beds are so comfortable. I have never slept so well!!! The continental breakfast was very fresh and delicious. The valet couldn't have been nicer. It is easy to walk to everything.

Great place to stay on campus!! Everything is top notch: the staff, the room, the restaurant, and, especially the location! If you want to stay on campus, there is only the Bell Tower Hotel and the Michigan League. It doesn't get much better.

The location was great, located within walking distance of shops and restaurants. I would have liked a fridge and microwave, but that fact that we did not have hot water in the shower, would make it less likely for me to recommend this hotel.

Delightful "turn down" service - when I got back to my room after a long day at the conference, the window blind was closed, lamp on, and free spring water and chocolate were waiting for me! Comfortable bed, good clean towels, nice window and desk. I liked the shampoo / conditioner / body wash / mouthwash / makeup remover cloth....

Very cheerful and pleasant accommodations steps away from UMich. Perfect for family visit. Stayed one night with my daughter while settling her into summer debate camp. Our room overlooked valet car parking area and a brick wall (not too scenic) but it was quiet. Lovely restaurant for breakfast, with great coffee and breads (Zingerman's, I believe).
