I used a LivingSocial deal in October that included a $50 dinner credit, free breakfast for 2, and wine and chocolate strawberries. The deal was outstanding and we really enjoyed our stay.
Check-in was a bit slow, as there was only one receptionist and she was a bit overwhelmed as there was a rabbi conference going on at the time and she had to check in several people. She really hustled and personally checked to make sure our room was ready. We had a king bed and had a great view of Lake Michigan. The room could use some updating, but was clean and spacious. The beach area was outstanding and, while too cold to swim, we hiked the lakefront the afternoon we arrived. For dinner, we expected the usual subpar hotel restaurant food, but were pleasantly surpised by the quality. While simple, the food was well prepared and plentiful. Even with two drinks each, we only went $15 over our credit. After dinner, the clerk allowed us to change our free bottle of champaign for red wine and we feasted on delicious chocolate covered strawberries before enjoying a moonlit stroll through the dunes to the beach.
While we didn't use the pool or fitness center,t hey both looked very nice. The fitness center in particular was large and well stocked with free weights and machines.
The next morning, before the weather turned foul, we again hiked a train that led away from the beach to an absolutely gorgeous fall riot of colors oak forest. I got some absolutely phenomenal photographs near a weathered bridge. Then we enjoyed our free breakfast for two.
After the rain started, we took the short drive to Milwaukee and toured the historic Frederick Pabst Mansion.
All-in-all, we had a wonderful, romantic time in Zion.
