This is a beautiful old hotel right up against the UM campus. The staff here is fantastic. Every single member of staff that we encountered smiled and greeted us. They were all very eager to assist and make us comfortable. This is now my hotel of choice in Ann Arbor.

Our family stayed in a suite at the property to visit the University of Michigan. The well-appointed suite was very nice and we noted the entire property to be EXCEPTIONALLY CLEAN to a level that is difficult to fine at any level property today. Our stay was excellent and we

Good location for the university. Pleasant staff. THe room was pretty noisy due to person in next room. The room was tidy and standard. Could use thicker bed covering. Breakfast was average. The stay was fine but nothing special.

I am sorry that you were disrupted by nearby guests. I wish we would have known during your stay so we would have been able to address it. I am really surprised that you felt the complimentary breakfast was average. We have spent a lot of time ensuring we offer the very best items (prepared each day) and that they are displayed in an elegant manner. We cut fresh fruit each day, crack and prepare fresh scrambled eggs, display fresh bagels and coffee from a local Ann Arbor company each and every day, not to mention offering 100% fresh squeezed orange juice. There are so many items that I am not going to list them all off. I would be very interested in hearing how you feel we could improve our breakfast. I hoe you give us another try in the future to show you we are the best hotel option in Ann Arbor. I look forward to hearing how we are able to improve our breakfast. Sincerely, DeWayne Grann General Manager

While this hotel is a little on the older side but the location is great! The hotel is right on campus which is perfect if you are visiting someone at the University of Michigan. The hotel is also a short walk from downtown Ann Arbor. However, the hotel is on the older side

I don't mean to question your taste but I guess I am a little confused. We renovated every guest room last year with new carpet, new wall cover, new furniture, new beds, all new lights, new 43" televisions, new bathrooms two years ago, a new restaurant last year, new lobby last year and new hallways last year. Please feel free to contact me directly at 734-769-3010 to discuss what you feel is outdated. Our feedback has been great from most guests but may not fit every person's taste. I look forward to discussing how we could improve. Regards, DeWayne Grann General Manager

Small room but clean. Excellent location. Bathroom was nicely updated, however, the sleeping area needs attention. The elevator was not in service during my stay but there are only 3 levels. Best location on campus, directly across from Hill auditorium.

I am a little surprised that you feel our sleeping area needs attention since we completed renovations at the end of last year. You are correct, the bathrooms have been renovated as well but I am sorry that you don't care for the decor of the living area. Please feel free to contact our Reservations Manager next time you are booking your reservation and she would be happy to describe all of the rooms so you are sure to have the perfect room that fits your needs. Sincerely, DeWayne Grann General Manager

How far is this hotel from the Big House?
About a mile and a half. Easy enough walk - not a great drive!
