We return to this beautiful hotel every winter and take advantaged of the incredibly good ski and stay combination. The value of the package is amazing. The breakfast buffet is something that we look forward to and remember fondly months after our visit. The staff members at the hotel are friendly and efficient. The location is absolutely beautiful and enables... More

We had a great time at the Inn at Bay Harbor on our very last minute escape. Having booked the hotel the night before we arrived, we then proceeded to call and bombard the wonderful staff with all kinds of ridiculous questions, which they treated with so much respect. The service through the stay was exceptional. Imagine our surprise when... More

I will not deny it is a nice place. What is concerning to me is that not once, but TWICE they put massive holds on my credit card when it was not even securing a room. Another party had already reserved a block of rooms for us. Because one of us was coming in a day early, our credit card... More

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent experience with us. I do apologize that there were so many difficulties with your credit card. I have followed up with our accounting department and learned that the reason your card was authorized for the larger amount when you checked in, even though you were paying for only one of the nights...

Stayed here two nights for our anniversary. Room upgraded when our original tower suite had a heating issue. Well laid out room with fireplace, king size bed, kitchen and jet tub. Very cozy couple retreat destination. Restaurant downstairs very nice- esp vintage chophouse. Staff placed red rose petals around room, complimentary sparkling wine, and drew a warm bath for anniversary... More

My family loves The Inn at Bay Harbor. We love connected rooms where kids can stay in one and my husband and I stay in the other room. The Inn is very clean, rooms are specious and have nice balcony overlooking Lake Michigan. Breakfast at the Sagamore's is the best!!!!

Excellent service -- friendly, caring staff including front desk, bellmen and valet. Beautiful views all year-round of Little Traverse Bay and Harbor Springs and Petoskey in the distance. Rooms are large, clean and brightly decorated. Great rates in the Fall and Winter. The Suites are beautiful. We had Suite 346 with a King bedroom, a bedroom with 2 twin beds,... More

Absolutely stunning property. Loved every minute here. The unending basket of s'mores provided by the staff for each campfire pit is such a nice amenity. Upscale property with a relaxing atmosphere. Great breakfast buffet too. Will be back.

My Husband and I went to celebrate my Birthday at this amazing Hotel as we did 4 years ago and believe me when I say it was just as beautiful the second time around. The rooms are nice and very clean, but our favorite spot was the Lounge. It was right on Lake Michigan where the windows overlooked the Lake.... More

I travel extensively for business but my favorite personal get-away hotel is the Inn at Bar Harbor. The location directly on Lake Michigan is fabulous and the rooms are very clean and well appointed. The Staff does an excellent job from the minute you arrive with Valet Parking--Shuttle service to local restaurants to the Staff in the Bar area and... More

There were six of us and we stay in a room on the water side. We were surprised to find out from the front desk that the Inn at Bay Harbor is a Condominum Hotel. And that each room is individually owned. Even though Marriott flies their flag, they do not own this property and nor does a company called... More
