We were looking for a quick get away to relax. The staff was awesome and the pool was exactly what we were looking for. We met a Wolverine Football player that played Marco Polo with the kids for and hour. My littles couldn't stop talking about it. Great times!

This is our second stay at the Kensington Hotel and I plan on returning. The hotel is fairly priced. We stayed in an executive room which entitled us to a very nice continental breakfast. Only a few minute drive to Ann Arbor and University of Michigan.

I stayed for 5 nights this March, the staff and hotel are lovely and really can't be faulted. We needed to move rooms which was no issue to them at all. Room service excellent, absolutely faultless. Would definitely stay again if I have reason to be in Ann Arbor.
