My fiancé and I went to traverse city in December to plan our wedding. We stayed the weekend at this resort and had appointments with west bay along with a few other reception venues. Long story short we booked our wedding with West Bay - not only because we loved the venue - but every one of the staff members went over and beyond the whole weekend! I would like especially thank Rachelle (wedding coordinator) and Jennifer & Brad who always gave us an amazing breakfast experience!! I had to call the resort back once we got home because I realized I forgot a bag in the room. Housekeeping was extremely friendly on the phone and went out of their way to ship it to me at no charge.

We cannot wait to have all of our guests have the same experience we did when we get married in August!!! :-)

Thank you, West Bay!!!

Stayed: December 2013, travelled as a couple

Best overall hotel experience I have experienced in several months. The way the staff attends to your needs and addresses you throughout the building is evident that management really cares. I stayed at this prior to the extensive renovation by the new owners and can say what a great (much needed) improvement. Good job!!!

Room Tip: Great view, spacious, extremely clean, but most of all, a comfortable bed. The breakfast was great, loved the club on Friday night. And the staff from check in to check out we're great, made you feel like you were appreciated . Definitely will return.

Jennifer works in the morning's at the West Bay Beach Hotel Resturant.
Her excellent service and assistance to all her customers is commendable.
She always goes beyond standard service procedure to be helpful and
kind to her customers. Thank you for your great service and kindness.

My husband and I dined at Shimmers this past weekend and everything was FANTASTIC! The atmosphere was a wonderful mix of elegance for dining and then later turned into a hip bar scene. Our server, Keene, was top notch and beyond helpful and informative in helping us make our dinner selections (I recommend the quesidilla to anyone!) All of the staff was truly accommodating to all of our needs. Shimmers truly does SHINE!

Being from the Traverse City area, my future husband and I had a tremendous number of quality choices for our wedding and reception venue. Yet a winter wedding created all kinds of challenges for out of town guests and the possibility of bad weather was a huge concern. We thought that a central location to town made sense. Early in our planning we stopped by West Bay Beach on a lark. We were astounded by the friendly staff, gorgeous updated facility and quality menus offered. So, we made a commitment to West Bay Beach and couldn't be happier!! The food at the reception was fabulous (and reasonably priced), the staff was very accommodating, cordial and gracious. Our room was lovely and had a gorgeous view of the Bay! Kudos to the West Bay team - they are top notch and believe me, I am well aware of all the incredible choices around our beautiful area!

Room Tip: Get a bay side view if you can!
