I really wanted to rate this hotel highly because the staff were so friendly and helpful. The valet put our leftover Zingerman's ribs in their refrigerator after we checked out and were looking at University of Michigan's campus. The location is absolutely wonderful if you are visiting Univ of MI. We walked 6 minutes to the Student center for our...

I am extremely sorry to hear about your uncomfortable bed and drafty window. We would have been more than happy to move rooms if we would have known if there were any issues with your room. I will make sure to have the Director of Housekeeping check the mattress immediately. We don't want any of our beds to be uncomfortable....

Bedside folder with description of the adjoining bar and restaurant was outdated. (Front desk said it has not been available for some time.) Otherwise it was indeed a pleasure to stay there. I would return there for a future visit to Ann Arbor!

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I am sorry that we have not removed that information. We are hoping that the restaurant will move back into the space. It is a good idea to remove that information until the restaurant moves back into space. We look forward to your return to the Bell Tower. Sincerely, DeWayne Grann General...

Ann Arbor does not have many options in the way of upscale hotels and other than staying at some of the chain hotels on the outskirts of town. this is the only nicer hotel I have stayed at in Ann Arbor. You can't beat the location within walking distance of restaurants and shops and the campus. The hotel is a...

The people were all so very nice that I hate to write a bad review, but... internet made it impossible to work, the loud heat made it hard to sleep, as did the lumpy mattress and pillows, thin blanket. Breakfast was free and the bagles were great the first day (said from a New Yorker!), but they were stale day...

Bell Tower is a great location with a very friendly service team; however, hotel is a bit tired looking on the interior. Given this, I felt the bang for the buck was not there. For $300 per night, I expected more.

My husband and I spent one night in a Small Queen room. It was a small room but we were expecting that and were pleasantly surprised the room had a large, renovated bathroom. The bed and bedding was very comfortable. The bed sat close to a set of glass patio doors so it was a bit cool on that side...

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay. I am glad to see that enjoyed your room, even if it is our smallest room.

It is unfortunate that the restaurant was damaged by a water pipe breakage.As the restaurant is operated by a third party there has been a delay in repairing the damage. I would have appreciated being informed that the restaurant was closed when I made the reservation.

This was a luxurious and unforgettable stay in summer, 2016. Many family members gathered for a reunion. We had breakfast together in the Bell Tower dining room: great buffet with many choices.
