This was our conference's hotel. The organizers assured us that code irregularities had been fixed. We're not so sure. Day #1, Room #1. The electricity was awry. There was none along 1-1/2 walls of the bedroom: bedside table lamp in one socket, another wall socket and, disturbingly, SMOKE / FIRE alarm wasn't working. The other side of the wall lacked...

A nice hotel that accomodates athletic teams. Spacious rooms, good breakfast, located right on Lake Michigan. Walking distance to many historic sites, eating plsaces, and speciality shops. Pier to the lake right outdside the door. Great view of sunrise. New ownership and new renervations in process.

Would not feed the food to a starving dog . Staff seemed like they didn't want to be there. Although it has great location. Remodel did wonders for the place, but bathrooms are very small . Beautiful view of Lake Michigan.

Elevator broken had to walk from the 5th floor. Wife has bad knees. Staff unconcerned. Put us in a more expensive room than we booked and charged us the upgrade fee. Double charged my credit card. Has not been resolved.

This hotel has come a long way from when I first started coming here. We stayed here because it was peaceful and the harbor view was fantastic. It is starting to become gentrified in the past few years with total renovations that were much needed. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. The staff is very helpful and nice. The... More

stayed 7 nights and complained that we did not have a working phone in our room. It was never fixed. Our keys were always having to be "fixed" everyday. We would go someplace and be locked out when we got back. We were woken up one morning to move our car for a crane. They could have let us know... More

The hotel is a bit dated but was clean and the staff was very helpful. It was a crowded weekend but was quiet at night. The harbor side views are wonderful. The location cannot be beat as downtown shops, dining and bars are all within walking distance.

We have been to this hotel every year for the past 3 years. The location is great to walk and see the history and museums and also grab something to eat and drink. The view from the rooms on the harbor side are great. Very beautiful and peaceful to walk or sit by the lake.
