    I enjoy the Kensington's pool and sauna facilities. I spent a good amount of time moving my daughter into a new apartment at U of M and was pretty tuckered out when I returned to the hotel. I was happy to know I could swim a bit in the sizable pool and use the sauna to relax after this endeavor. I only wish the Kensington would install a cold shower near the sauna, which is common practice in Europe.

    I have stayed at the Kensington previously and was satisfied with the facilities. However, during this stay, I requested a room away from the I-94 highway and the parking lot to avoid noise. I was assigned a room on the courtyard, which was acceptable and pleasant, but found that the room was not properly maintained. One of the bedside lamps was non-functional, and the toilet seat slipped every time I needed to use it. Otherwise I had a pleasant stay. I mentioned these issues to the front desk manager on my departure, who guaranteed me a discount coupon for a future stay, which I have to date not received.
