Good overall except for the lack of housekeeping on the first day. Also need a better place for breakfast. Baseball pretty depressing. No windows etc. Might want to add to the fitness area. The renovations to the property were nice.

If you are visiting the University of Michigan and want to get the feel of both the campus and all of what nearby downtown Ann Arbor offers, then the location of the Bell Tower is unbeatable. Wonderful, helpful attentive staff; clean, older style comfortable rooms, and a short walk to everything. Not close to the least costly option, but in...

Location is great. They need a bar / restaurant it had a flood situation over a year ago and it's still not open and they are in the process of a much needed upgrade. A very nice hotel with very friendly staff.

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.

I am sorry for the internet problems. We recently replaced our wireless system and have experienced intermittent problems that are being fixed today. Our system will be running well after this solution. We also look forward to moving the breakfast upstairs upon the completion of the renovation. I look forward to your next stay so we are able to prove...

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...

I am sorry that you were unhappy with the lack of a restaurant in the hotel but our website does not advertise a restaurant since it has closed and will not be reopening. Our site offers our staff to pick up local restaurant food and deliver it to your room. Again, I am sorry that you felt you were mislead....

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.
