Nice, clean hotel. Breakfast buffet was just ok. The in-room movies are priced too high. It would be nice to have an outdoor pool. There are local pubs and restaurants within walking distance which was nice. Much more activity across the river.

A very lovely, renovated hotel. I thought the facility was brand new and was surprised to find it was much older than I imagined. Pool is small, but hey, there's the whole river and Bay to look at on the west side of the hotel. The food was good and our professional group had an excellent time in the meeting/banquet... More

This Hotel is very comfortable in an excellent location. Walking distance from waterfront park and downtown area which is also nice to visit. Bay City is fortunate to have this available to her guests.

The warm cookies were a nice touch, and the facility was clean, comfortable and well-organized. The proximity to local eateries and taverns is a plus, as is the riverfront view. I'd recommend it for business or pleasure trip.

Chose the Double Tree because of the great experience that I had at the one in South Bend, Indiana where I attended a wedding last year. Was really disappointed and literally grossed out when I lifted the toilet seat in room 202 to discover that housekeeping apparently does not check and clean the underside of the seat. To my horror... More

rsuminski~ Thank you for taking some time to post your review and give us feedback. We do take all positive and negative comments seriously. I also looked into your specific situation and found out that what you were looking at was actually overspray from our cleaning solution around the bolts of the toilet. It does appear as a rusty color... More

Beautiful location, clean, efficient check in etc. Housekeeping was wonderful. Our view was on river side in an accessible room. Staff was very responsive to all requests no matter how minor. Families with children were evident but our room was quiet and well insulated from all noises. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay & would stay again if in the area.

They take pride in what they do and how they do it. We very much enjoyed our stay. Quality facility and quality staff. This was a business stay as part of a state-wide organization. Because of the positive experience a related organization is planning to use this DoubleTree for a future conference.

Employees are friendly and helpful, rooms/bed comfortable, and food is good. Its just the little things that I remember. Unless it only takes you a minute to dry your hair, bring your own hairdryer - the ones supplied are attached to the wall and you have to hold the long button in the whole time to get the dryer to...

Molly V~ Thank you so much for taking some time to give us your very valuable feedback. I want to absolutely apologize for the inconvenience you suffered with the hair dryer issue. Our dryers typically do not require a person to hold down the "on" button the entire time while someone dries their hair. It is obvious to me that... More

I'm from the Saginaw area and have always heard the Double Tree is a nicer hotel but I just didn't see why that is the case. I came in from Ann Arbor for my brothers wedding and had to attempt to check in early Friday as I was involved in wedding activities all day. The staff at the front desk... More

Jeremy G~ I am extremely dissapointed that we did not meet or exceed your expectations. We feel that our property is in great condition and have a staff that goes above and beyond when it comes to service. We do not have bellman on our staff that bring luggage up to rooms but we should be able to handle those... More

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... More
