Wondering where to stay in Ann Arbor, Michigan? Luckily, for travelers who prefer boutique lodging, Ann Arbor has us covered. Previously, I’ve written about staying at the collegiate-chic Graduate Ann Arbor in the heart of downtown. Now, I’d like to share with you where I stayed on my most recent visit — Weber’s Boutique Hotel.
Having celebrated its 80th anniversary in 2017, Weber’s has reinvented itself over the past 80+ years, but one aspect has remained constant — the Weber family at the helm. In 1937, Herman Weber opened his first inn at the intersection of Washtenaw and Platt roads. At only 23 years old, Herman invested the money he had earned as a dishwasher at Metzger’s, another long-running family business in Ann Arbor, into the inn he ran with his brother. Since then, Weber’s has moved, grown, and become well known for its Prime Rib and hospitality.
Inside Weber’s Modern Guest Rooms
My standard double room had two plush Simmons Beautyrest pillow-top full-size beds, where I had a peaceful sleep each night. With 300 thread count sheets and down pillows and comforters, the beds were incredibly cozy and comfortable.
The room’s double bed set up worked out really well since my mom joined me for two nights of my Ann Arbor getaway. At 300 square feet, the room also felt spacious enough for the two of us to store our luggage and get ready each morning without bumping into one another. I really appreciated the full length mirror in the bedroom on those mornings!

What makes staying at Weber’s Boutique Hotel so special? The amenities! In particular, the atrium with the indoor salt water pool is a gem. I love how this indoor pool feels like you are outside due to the sunlight pouring into the skylight windows. Yet, being indoors, guests can take a refreshing dip any time of year — even in the middle of a snowy Michigan winter!
As a traveler who jam packs my itineraries, I really appreciate that the business center and gym are both open 24 hours. That gives me the flexibility to work and exercise as early or late as I want. Speaking of the gym, it has cardio and strength-training equipment. After working out, guests can relax in the sauna or hot tub. Just looking to have fun? The atrium has a pool table, ping pong, and arcade games.

Food and Drink at Weber’s
Of course, one of the major perks of staying at Weber’s is the food! As I previously mentioned, Weber’s Restaurant is known for its prime rib, and it has been that way since the 1950s. I’ve dined at the upscale restaurant a couple times over the past seven years and have always left impressed with my meal of seafood or steak.
On this most recent visit, it was the Bakeshop that pleased my taste buds. If you are a Michigan native, you probably already know Weber’s is a popular wedding venue in southeast Michigan. Since hosting weddings is a longstanding tradition at Weber’s, offering custom wedding cakes made by pastry chef Marybeth King is a nice touch. The Bakeshop also makes pastries for the Coffee Bar, which is open each morning. You’ll also find delicious cookies available to purchase at the reception desk. Trust me, you should try the chocolate chip!
