    Will definitely stay again!
    Gorgeous hotel and amazing experience all around. Check in was easy and they gave the kids little goodie bags and champagne for the adults. We also ate at the restaurant which was delicious. And the pool is great too!

    Very Good 8.0
    Pretty good stay
    The staff weren’t necessarily mean but definitely ignored me at check in and check out which I get it if you’re busy that’s fine but there were like four of them just standing there not help us, but the over night guy was super friendly and the condition of the hotel was decent.

    Great...Family loves the Big Pool
    jeff, us1 night family trip
    Good 6.0
    Facade and Lobby look terrific, champagne offered upon arrival. Pool and pool area are really nice. The issues I observed were with the room. The ceiling showed water leaks in the bathroom. The bathroom fan did not work. The shower/tub did not drain fast enough to let the water out as you showered. The listing says “free breakfast” however it is not. Breakfast is from the attached restaurant. The room did it have a microwave which I probably should have checked but in 2020 it’s unheard of.
    Michael or Marsha, us1 night family trip
    Good 6.0
    Dirty room, nice staff
    The overall experience was good. The hotel itself is nice and the staff was very friendly and helpful. However, there was a clump of hair dried to our shower wall and the room looked like it hadn't been dusted in weeks. For one of the "premier" hotels in Ann Arbor- I was disappointed.
