The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. Especially the front desk clerk Hannah. She made sure that my accommodations were convenient and comfortable. I had to book a last minute stay at the Kensington and wasn’t sure if they were able to accommodate me with it being a last minute stay.. she informed me after booking.. that I was able to get an available room as soon as it opened up.. the next time I visit Ann harbor. The Kensington will be my staple hotel
