Great hotel…comfortable rooms and great pool

Great hotel. Back facility very cool looking and large. Breakfast was great. Only issue is the hotel Apparently does not clean or replace towels for multi day visits. I’m assuming this is because of “Covid” or “the environment”, But frankly I’m paying over $200 a night.. So if they’re going to cut corners like that I feel like a discount is in order

Overnight in Ann Arbor
Friendly staff. Beautiful property. But not exactly wheelchair friendly. Travel in hallways and elevator was difficult as well as getting wheelchair into the room.

Check in was amazing staff was professional, personable and helpful. Rooms were nice. Buffet was definitely subpar. The woman serving us was efficient and pleasant, I was less than happy with the food

6/10 Good

Room was clean and comfortable. Bathroom was very tiny for an executive king room. Restaurant not open they offered limited salads, cold wings and sandwiches in a small cooler nearfront desk. I wanted a salad but no salad dressing was offered I asked the guy at the front desk and he said kitchen was closed so he couldn’t get me any so I passed. Not impressed that a small regular hotel coffee in the lobby costs $3 ridiculous it’s not free for a room I paid $160 for.
