The standard staff were friendly, helpful and very polite. The Room Service was a disaster, perhaps they were just under-staffed but they confused rooms and took much too long to deliver (the wrong food) - that can happen though. Unfortunately, there was black mold and mildew n

We recently visited Michigan for my daughters skating competition and stayed at the Kensington.
The stay was nice but most importantly was the friendly staff. Our initial problem was resolved by KP and Geoffrey did a fantastic job in the lobby with all our folks.
Thanks to both o

I couldn't have asked for a nicer stay. I was greeted by a hotel specialized who treated me with the utmost patience and respect. The cleanliness of the hotel was amazing! I appreciated the amenities that were available to me even at the late hour (I arrived after 9 pm).

I see that this is a +VIP hotel on Expedia. Are there room upgrades or perks for being an Expedia gold member? Free breakfast perhaps?
Thanks for the inquiry! Expedia VIP's are given an upgrade to our Concierge level room based on availability. Warm Regards, Dena

"None - I did not leave a tip"
"We had everything we needed and when we didn’t, the front desk provided it for us. "
"Third floor Executive rooms are the most quiet and the room for breakfast and appetizers is on this floor."
"It isn't a high rise, so try to get a room away from the highway and away from State Street to avoid the non-stop traffic noise"
"Not 352! Very noisy if something is going on in the courtyard!"
US$ 89 - US$ 165 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
