Classic real old world charm on the lake. Typical continental breakfast. Nice bar\lounge on the lower level. I had a room away from the lake so there wasn't much of a view from that side. I don't remember getting a better nights sleep in a hotel. Very quite room, comfortable beds, great shower.

Nice suite (Ironwood Suite) with fridge, kitchen sink, some cupboards, paper towels, but no silverware or plates or pots or pans. Small kitchen table with two chairs. No desk but kitchen table works for that. Living area, couch, one reading lamp, coffee table, armoire. TV is not in living area, rather it is in the bedroom. Pretty quiet stay. When...

The service and the location of this hotel are top notch. I was within walking distance of the bay, restaurants and shopping. The staff went out of their way when there was an issue with my thermostat in my room. I would definitely stay there again.

Our visit was during an oddly warm February (warm is relative). The hotel is an impressive edifice, made with keeping the history of the area alive. The lobby is very pleasant, with a grand northern-Wisconsin feel. Entering further, one finds the delightful parlor, well done with an historic theme. The hotel room was fine: nothing amazing nor terrible. Although the...

We have been traveling upnorth for R&R for many years. This time was a quick trip for some R&R and Reading. Hotel Chequamegon provided all that including their great chowder in their pub. We will return.

Restaurant is convenient but closes at 9pm which is not great when you arrive at 9:01. Staff is helpful. Breakfast is fantastic and the hours are...
