“Nice place but EXTREMELY expensive!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

While this is a nice, new hotel, it is way way way overpriced! As a previous reviewer had shared, beware of noise from the room above yours unless you are on the top floor. All the complimentary things that others have shared about this hotel are true. The place is just way overpriced! Also, don't be fooled into thinking there is anything at all to see out the windows of the rooms with the "historic city view." There's nothing to see from those "historic city view" rooms other than your car in the parking lot. My wife and I travel extensively, including to the Chicago area where comperable rooms don't cost anywhere near as much as rooms here. I'm not sure what makes the owners of this hotel think their rooms can command such high rate? I don't get it for the life of me. If you havent been to Marquette before, there are lots and lots of other nice hotels in the Marquette area that don't charge an arm and a leg!

Room Tip: Check prices on Travelocity, Expedia, Priceline, etc. for potentially better rates. We saved nearly...

New hotel that is very nice. Super clean rooms set up with excellent amenities for traveling in the modern times, offering two electrical plugs and USB charging ports on the night stand next to the clock!

Salt water pool and nice hot tub. Great fitness room that overlooks Lake Superior. Nice walk out deck with so a gorgeous scenes.

Within walking distance of the main downtown area eatery sans shops. A great place to stay. Pay the extra and stay on the lake.

Nice new hotel right on lake superior. Definitely a nicer hampton property. Room was very clean and had a great view of the lake. The location is walking distance to the downtown area. I'd stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the lake side.

Very costly for the price, it was a simple room with two beds for $300 per night. There was no place to sit in the room. It would have been nice to have a sitting area and a tub for the price. Location was good as it was right on the water and the sunrise was right outside our window over Lake Superior.

Very nice hotel but pricey. You can walk to downtown to the shops, pubs, restaurants, etc. The hotel is newer and faces the water. We had a room on the third floor. Very nice. It was very windy that day, so we didn't have much time to walk except to dinner. Nice stay.

Room Tip: Third floor facing the water.

Best location in Marquette with wonderfully helpful staff. Family trip in the area, we had a room looking right out onto the lake, enjoyed the bike trail next to the hotel. Walking distance to Ore Dock Brewing Co. and other down-town locations.
