My husband and I have been staying at the Chippewa Hotel for many years now, in fact, we were married there on their patio! Archie has been there as long as we can remember. He is ALWAYS running to help someone! He always ensures that our bags are taken to our room, to the dock, and back again! This morning, we pretty much drove him crazy, we kept changing the time we were leaving. We finally settled on THE time, told Archie and he said "No worries, I'll see to your bags and make sure they get to the dock on time, AND if you give me your vehicle claim ticket I'll make sure they have your car ready upon arrival in Mackinaw City!" Well, we had about 45 minutes before our boat left, had been walking for about 30 and here comes Archie on a bicycle, all panting and out of breath! He peddled up and said, "Did you forget something"? He had our most important bag, the one with our laptop, e-readers and cash in it!!! In our frenzy to get out of the room we had forgotten it on the bed. Archie wasted NO time trying to find us, going up and down the street until he finally saw us. He is the best of the best! The Chippewa is very fortunate to have Archie Hart in their employ. We love the Chippewa. The entire staff eagerly welcomes us each and every time. The rooms are spotless, fresh and very clean! Thank ALL of you!
