U.S. News Review

This four-star hotel huddles in Birmingham, Michigan — a northern suburb of Detroit and just about a 30-minute drive away. Guests say The Townsend cultivates a classy atmosphere with its afternoon high tea and attentive service staff. Still, some recent guests say the aging hotel, especially its dated rooms, could use a facelift. Despite the antiquated room decor, recent guests do applaud the 300-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets and the spacious marble bathrooms with deep soaking tubs and Gilchrist & Soames bath amenities. Aside from the digs, Townsend also boasts several dining options including the well-regarded Rugby Grille, though guests report Birmingham offers a wide variety of restaurants worth tasting.
