About The Kensington Hotel, Ann Arbor

Elegant Ann Arbor hotel with an indoor pool and free WiFi

Next to Briarwood Mall

In southern Ann Arbor, the hotel is opposite Briarwood Shopping Mall's collection of casual stores and eateries. You are 1 block from I-94 and a 13-minute drive to the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library; downtown Ann Arbor, with its shops and restaurants, is 3 miles away.

Several on-campus museums

The sprawling campus of the University of Michigan can be reached by car from the Kensington Hotel in 6 minutes. The grounds are home to several museums which are open to the public, including the archaeology-based Kelsey Museum and the University of Michigan Museum of Art.

Swimming and dining

You can take a dip in the property’s indoor pool, soak away their stresses in the hot tub, or work out in the exercise room. The onsite Graham's Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and its lounge is the perfect place for a beer with friends while watching sports. Have your next meeting in one of the multiple meeting rooms.

Classic style

The 200 guestrooms offer free WiFi so you can catch up on emails and surf the Web with ease. The rooms feature deep reds and greens to create a warm ambience – an ideal environment for curling up in the plush bedding and watching cable on the flat-screen TV.

The Kensington Hotel, Ann Arbor
Great BUT...
I was so impressed with everything's from check-in to the room until I went to shower and there was hair all over the wall of the shower. The staff was very apologetic and sent in housekeeping to clean it. I will definitely stay again, but I will do a full inspection next time.

The Kensington Hotel, Ann Arbor
Very sharp, professional, helpful, top-notch staff. Rooms were pleasant, quiet, and incredibly clean and comfortable. Far nicer than some of the other experiences I've had in the area. Would definitely stay again!
