Outstanding service, the staff was welcoming. We enjoyed dinner and drinks in The Rugby Grill. The rooms are on a par with other luxury hotels that I have stayed. The gym is also top end and plenty of equipment.

nice as usual, I always enjoy staying at townsend. The location is great as most of the customers I serve are very close by and breakfast meetings make for an efficient use of time to travel west from Detroit. I have been visiting the townsend for 15 to 20 years and its always been great. The only problem is price,...

Simply amazing food (In-room & at the Rugby Grille). Helped get my boyfriend's suit dry cleaned in less than 24 hours before an event we had. The staff was quick to help us with any needs, and the room was just divine. We were offered cocktails by the fire while waiting for our taxi and it was the perfect way...

This is an above average hotel. All staff made us feel very welcome. The hotel is very clean, quiet and well located. The bakery adjoining the hotel is a great convenience and food quality in the Rugby Grill is very good.
