            It has a nice "old style" charm about it. Staff were fantastic...very friendly and very very helpful. Location to the U OF M campus and downtown Ann Arbor is perfect. Kind of a neat old place.

            TV cable could be upgraded...... price a bit high given age and limitations of the hotel

            Location. Friendly helpful staff.

            No good desk stup in room. Slow elevator.

            Perfect location, comfortable room with great shower and friendly staff.

            No problems...just a very nice stay.

            Their location can't be beat if you want to be close to State St. central campus or downtown

            Hose down and sanitize the stairwells.

          • Couple
            5.8

            Staff was friendly. Very centrally located. Free parking.

            In my opinion it was overpriced. Bathroom and room overall was very dated.

          • Older travelers
            8.0

            My husband has severe reactions to mould. Upon our arrival, we had to visit several rooms before we could find one that he did not have a reaction to. Staff were extremely accommodating and eventually placed us in a newly renovated room. The manager gave us the room for the same price as the one we booked (a $10 per night difference). Staff were very friendly and helpful. We liked that there was a small breakfast available, though it was not great and our second morning we went out for breakfast.

            Most of the rooms we saw were older and had mould/odour issues. The cost for the rooms was way beyond their value. We checked out other local venues that were much nicer, cleaner and offered many more amenities for a much lower cost. If you had a number of items to carry to your room, you still had to cart them up a set of stairs to the elevator as there was no elevator on the ground floor to accommodate the cart. Even though there were plenty of upgraded rooms available, no upgrades were allowed. As we were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary, we found this to be a disappointment, given the number available.

            location and staff were excellent

            adjoining room doors are not terribly tight, can hear people in the other rooms

            Walking distance to theatres and clubs.

            We came to Ann Arbor to run a 1/2 marathon and stayed at this hotel. It was within walking distance to the start and finish line as well as great restaurants and shopping. The hotel had everything we needed even the weather forecast for race day!

          • Group of friends
            9.2

            Great location, friendly staff, clean room

            My only issue is with the loud, out of date heater/air conditioner in the room. The weather was unusually warm (mid 80s) during our stay so I put on the in room air conditioner which looks like a relic from the 80s - very loud and didn't do too good of a job cooling the air more than 10 feet away from the unit (you couldn't sense the lower temperatures if seated on the couch 15 feet away)

          • Family with children
            8.8

            The staff

            The air conditioning system is noisy and too cold

          • Family with children
            5.8

            The Bell Tower Hotel is on the campus and a convenient location for walking around the campus and downtown Ann Arbor.

            The room was small and the bathroom was terrible - 80's tile and sink complete with cracked tile and mold.
