    It's convenient to the Ann Arbor airport for those who can take advantage of private flights. The staff is helpful, rooms are clean and well maintained. It's also not far from the downtown area. I'd be very happy staying there again.

    The hotel was amazing. The front desk staff were welcoming and kind. The room was well clean and well appointed. The bed was amazing - the pillows - not so much if you require more head and neck support!
