“Very nice, probably nicest hotel in BC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

Very nice hotel. The room was clean and modern. Staff was friendly, check in and out was easy. They always have warm cookies for free, which is a unique plus. The pool and hot tub are little small. The pool is still very nice though and great for younger kids ("deep end " is <5 ft). The hotel is within walking distance to all the downtown businesses and entertainment. By far and away, the biggest selling point of the double tree is the river view. It's beautiful and worth the extra $30-50 a night you pay over the holiday inn or Fairfield inn if your not on a tight budget (although of the two, I lean a little more in favor of the holiday inn). I didn't eat here so I can't comment on the food. I will definitely stay here again.

Stayed July 2014, travelled as a couple

We loved our stay at the Doubletree for the night of the big fireworks in Bay City. The staff was great and the kids had a blast swimming in the pool. (Mommy enjoyed taking a break in the hot tub too!) We dined on the patio prior to the fireworks and the service was excellent. Afterward, we joined Grandma and Grandpa on the front lawn of the hotel and saw a spectacular show! We topped things off with breakfast at the hotel in the morning. We will definitely be back!

Trying to make reservations took months because i could never get the same answer twice. The price is doubled for the night of the finale. The room and service is great and everyone is very helpful. There is no other hotel close to the firework therefore they have a monopoly on the area.

Great hotel, I booked a riverside view room and was given a street view but I didn't really mind because I was just using the room to sleep after a wedding that day. Forgot toothpaste and the hotel was nice enough to provide me some quickly and easily to my room. Great service.

We woke up the morning of the Fourth of July with a bit of wanderlust and adventure. Looked to fund if there was any rooms at the Doubletree Bay City for the night. Amazing with the 3 Day Fireworks Festival we were able to secure a riverside view room. Sure it was a bit pricey, but we've heard such great things about the Bay City fireworks since we've moved to MI. It was so worth it!
Loved the hotel, check in always flawless and we were acknowledged as Hilton Honors guests. Our room was not on the HH but no problem. Room was comfortable (2 doubles) with a great view. Clean and fresh, I even heard someone when we were headed to the elevators comment on how fresh even the hallways smelled. We received the complimentary hot doubletree cookies on check in and HH voucher for the restaurant to double HH points etc. The restaurant patio (and server staff) were excellent. We loved both our servers one in afternoon for drinks and the other for our dinner on the patio pre fireworks show. On nights of the fireworks there is a 2 hr limit on dining, due to possible crowd. The crowd on the Fourth was comfortable, and we were allowed to linger since there were still a couple of free tables just before the fireworks. Night was quiet after fireworks and we slept well in comfortable beds. Upon check out we asked about booking for next year, and staff recommended to call or check back in a month to make RSVP. If you love a river view, boats, draw bridges, local band music, antique stores and shops, Bay City was a nice one tank trip outta town. Well be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view. I have not watched a draw bridge for years open and let large ships pass throu...

We stayed Thursday thru Sunday for the fireworks festival. We loved everything about the hotel. Parking was guaranteed, the view of the water was beautiful, the staff was friendly, and the restaurant food was good. We will definitely stay here again. The pool was a big hit with our 9 year old too.

Room Tip: The rooms with a view of the water are worth it.
