First, the staff is first rate. We have stayed at some of the best hotels in the U.S. and Europe. The staff at the Inn at Bay Harbor are simply the best! They go out of their way to assist in every way. The grounds are perfectly manicured. The view of Lake Michigan is breathtaking. The rooms are updated in... More

I love to stay here because I always feel special by the treatment we receive. The staff is very friendly and attentive, however it is pretty lean in December. The rooms are very nice, clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. The view of Lake Michigan is beautiful from the room balcony. My only regret is that I as a platinum elite... More

We stay here both in the winter and summer. A fantastic experience year round. Beautiful views, especially sunset on the bay. Close to several skiing resorts and winery's. We always come back to familiar, smiling faces. The spa is to die for here as well. Restaurants are top notch. Rooms are wonderful- stay in a suite, it is worth it,... More

This hotel is high - class. Staff is attentive, gym is nice, and valet is available. The restaurant in the lobby is very good and the smaller gift shop has everything you might need, you don't ever have to leave. You can rent bikes in the summer, and they give you a $20 voucher to play at a local casino.... More

From the minute you arrive the red carpet is rolled out! Even tho I was there at off season, they still went all out! The spa and the service providers were top notch! Excellent food and service! Can't say enough good about this place!! This is my third time going and I will definitely be returning!

Something to please everyone This restaurant was the only one we offering Prime Rib (and Turkey & Ham). The food was outstanding and the side dishes unique and gourmet. Service was excellent.

The staff at all levels from desk to bar to door are all very professional and welcoming. The hotel is well maintained and clean. This is a Renaissance property with typical great beds. Here are the down sides: First they charge you a "resort fee" on top of the room charge yet this is not a resort. There is nothing... More

The Inn provides for an excellent getaway no matter when you stay. The staff is highly professional. The setting is exceptional. The amenities impeccable. This facility and the staff set the bar by which I compare all other Marriott properties. None compare to this property and the service the staff provides. Rooms are in all different configurations, so be sure... More

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Inn at Bay Harbor. Cathy the concierge was very helpful with dinner suggestions. She was very helpful in helping us lay out places to see in our 4 days there. Keith was our driver the first evening and Dan for the rest of our stay. Logan at the front desk was very friendly... More
