We had a wonderful stay at the Bell Tower for our daughter's Ann Arbor wedding. This hotel is similar to a European boutique hotel -- great service and nice rooms in an old world charm setting, with the bonus of modern bathrooms. Good food in the cafe with a nice breakfast and great coffee. The best part about this hotel...

Free valet parking, which is great. Bellmen are very helpful and friendly. Old time hotel. Perfect place to stay for our tour of Univ. of Michigan; it's one block from campus. Our queen suite was very small, but beds and pillows were comfortable. Housekeeping very responsive. My kids got a kick that we used a regular metal key to open...

The Bell Tower Hotel is a half block from the UMichigan campus. Besides the university, it is close to restaurants, cafes, Walgreens & CVS, and other shopping venues. The hotel has a breakfast included with coffee, potatoes, eggs, yogurt, granola, and fruit. The room was small but clean. The property is rustic--the air conditioning unit was loud and the wifi...

I am sorry that our air conditioning unit was loud. I am sure we were able to fix that immediately after reporting to us. We have a new WiFi system so I am disappointed that it was slow during your stay. I will make sure to have our support review the system and ensure it is working properly. Sincerely, DeWayne...

We traveled as a family of 4 for a tour of UM. This hotel suited the basic needs for an overnight stay and is perfectly located for that. But I would definitely not want to stay more than 1 night here. Room was very small, which is fine if there is a communal place..lobby. bar to go to which this...

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.

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!

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.
