This is certainly a premier resort in Michigan however the rooms are truly showing their age. The first room I was assigned to had a gorgeous view of the bay, but the room obviously was inhabited by smokers. Even my bell cap said the room smelled badly of smoke... I was moved to a new room...same lovely view...but the air... More

This huge, sprawling complex keeps reminding me of why the 1970s were such a terrible decade for architecture. My room was very large, and had a million-dollar view of the Grand Traverse Bay. However, the only way to savor that view was to hop into a hot-tub in the bathroom! Getting into the room required multiple turns that didn't quite... More

Birthday trip to Grand Traverse 9-11-14 thru 9-13-14. This was our 3rd stay at Grand Traverse. I love the resort overall but agree that the standard rooms are not as impressive as would be expected. We were fortunate to be offered a condo! The resort and spa had always made up for the average rooms in my opinion. Now that... More

Rooms were horribly out of date. The jacuzzi tubs were old/gross I would not dare take a bath in one. Not even an ice maker/ vending machine on the floor.. Just every other floor. Room service stops at 9 or 10 pm.. If I were an older 60+ I may not mind this place but if your not here to... More

Our son and family brought us here to share in a family vacation. They wisely chose a 2 bedroom condo over the hotel rooms, which gave us family time with enough room for everyone to relax, with a great kitchen to boot. We ate at Jack's Bar just after check-in, and had a great perch sandwich, and opted to eat... More

Rooms just a little better than a Hampton but 3times as expensive. Aerie restaurant filled with empty tables but too busy to seat 2 people for dinner. Two hour wait even though only one table had people eating. Really scary dirty stairwells, nice view from room too bad windows weren't clean. DJ music blaring so loud we can still hear... More

This is a huge resort located at the east end of the Traverse City area. The shops are mediocre and the ice cream was very expensive. They do have a starbucks. I would not suggest staying there if you're spending a lot of time in the Sleepy Bear sand dunes area which is an hour drive away. Housekeeping took my... More

This originally started out as a family vacation but as I toured the property I quickly realized that it would make a great venue for our next sales meeting. We stayed at the shores condominiums right on the beach - the rooms were a little out dated but the location was perfect. The hotel staff worked very hard to provide... More
