I normally stay at Candlewood Suites, but they were booked up, so thought I would try this Clarion. I appreciated the reviews that suggested staying in the Business Tower for nicer rooms.
I stayed in the Business Tower and the hotel was virtually booked solid. Lots of football traffic and what appeared to be a family reunion.
PROS: Room was quiet. I loved having a fridge for water and fruit. Felt very safe there, as a single traveler. Bathroom was clean. Room did not smell a bit of smoke. Well lit. Very easy access from freeways or downtown Ann Arbor. Parking was well lit and abundant. Fantastic price.
CONS: Compared to other hotels in the area, this one could use a facelift and some botox. It just felt "old", but not in a historic way. Tables were nicked up. Couldn't plug my cell phone into the outlets b/c they were not screwed into the wall tight. King sized bed had 3 small, square, flat pillows. Sofa did not look like one I would sit on.
In fairness, I got a great price by traveling with my company. The staff, the peace and quiet; and overall cleanliness all made for a fine overnight.
