Reviewed 9 July 2013

Stayed for 3 nights while our son was at orientation. Nice suite room (#220), King bed with small kitchen. Everything worked well. Simple breakfast offered. Staff was friendly and helpful. Easy drive to U of M, but no shuttle offered.
We will try other places over the next few years, but I can see us staying here again.

Stayed: July 2013, travelled with family

This is a great property, only nine-months old, very clean with top-shelf staff at the front desk. It's somewhat bare-bones with a limited continental breakfast (read: only protein were hard-boiled eggs) but if you're good with some frozen muffins, oatmeal from an envelope and a waffle iron along with an assortment of cereal, you'll be fine.

Since we were traveling with our pet, we loved the very nice dog walk area outside. The pool was terrific and our kids enjoyed the selection of pool toys like noodles and beach balls provided. Amazing how a $30 investment in pool toys from the Dollar Store really add to the enjoyment factor.

There's a large regional shopping mall across the roadway, though we didn't venture over, and a number of chain restaurants nearby. We opted to spend most of our time in downtown restaurants (Ann Arbor is beautiful, btw) and downtown and campus are only a short drive from this hotel. If you're looking for a lower-priced, reduced glamor, hotel, this is certainly a terrific option.

Thank you for the review. Your feedback is greatly appreciated. We have found that our guests show much appreciation to the small and big details that the TownePlace Suites by Marriott Ann Arbor has to offer. Thank you for noticing those small details like the pool noodles and our dog path. We are currently working on expanding our breakfast, hopefully with an addition of more hot items. Again, thank you for the review and we hope to see you again!

The staff was friendly and hospitable. The hotel was very nice and clean. I did have a problem with a beeping noise in the room, but maintenance was sent over very quickly to fix the problem. The bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet. I would stay here again if I am in the Ann Arbor area.

The Staff at the Townplace Suites were some of the friendliest I have encountered. They have a nice dog area. The rooms are clean, decor is pleasing, and the beds are comfortable - which is important! I would say the common areas are small, but we only stayed one night so maybe it is adequate? The breakfast area did seem crowded, but offered many choices - I grabbed a few wrapped to go items (yogurt, muffin, cereal bar) since we were in a hurry. We had wanted to stay in the downtown area, but the location was easy access to everything and worked out well.

We stayed here for 6 nights while visiting friends and family in Michigan. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were large and we even got a roll away bed so that our children did not have to share the sleeper sofa.

The breakfast was the same each morning - cereal, hard boiled eggs, make your own belgian waffles and breads. Snacks, beverages and treats were available in the lobby for purchase and coffee was served all day. We drove to downtown Ann Arbor to walk around and do dinner. Traffic was really heavy all around us each day beginning at 4 pm until about 7 pm.

The pool was clean with noodles and balls to play with. The fitness center was a good size with 2 treadmills, an elliptical machine and weights. We could walk to Briarwood Mall for lunch and dinner. We did laundry while swimming, very easy.

Overall, a great stay in a large room with great service.

Room Tip: You should request a room on the Briarwood side - you will hear less traffic (although we still had...

Every Time that we have been in Ann Arbor, we stayed at the Eagle Crest Marriott, the last stay at the Eagle Crest made me so mad that I wanted to leave the Marriott brand and not come back, so I used up my points and figured this would be my last stay in a Marriott branded hotel. Not expecting much as far as friendliness or guest service this property puts the Eagle Crest to shame. From check in to check out, we were greeted by warm sincere greetings from everyone, I will definitely stay at this property again.

Came here from PIttsburgh for the night before drop off of our son at Michigan for orientation. Room was large which allowed for repacking and going over final details. Breakfast was not the best I have had at a Marriott, but it was okay. Overall, the experience was good and met expectations.

Thank you for the review. We appreciate you taking notice to how spacious our suites are. Being an all suite hotel,our studio suites are 30% larger than the average hotel room. The space is a major convenience to our guest who are here for business or even relocations. Also, thank you for the feedback on our breakfast. We are currently working on expanding our breakfast selections by adding more hot items. When you come back to Ann Arbor to visit your son, we hope that you choose to stay with us again so that we can exceed your expectations!

Thanks again and Go Blue!
