Hotel's Favorite
5.0 of 5 bubbles
I met up with a friend of mine in Bay City on a Friday in May 2023 and we had the pleasure of staying at this DoubleTree. I had stayed at this hotel over 11 years ago and loved it at that time, so it was great being able to return and stay here again!

The check-in process was a little slower than it should have been, but I wasn't in a huge hurry. We were in Room #601 which was clean and comfortable. (I believe I had reserved a room with two queen-size beds but we ended up with a room with one king. It wasn't a huge deal, so we just kept it.)

I love this hotel. It definitely checks all the boxes for me... an indoor pool with a hot tub that we used, business center computers for guests to use, a restaurant/bar, and of course an excellent downtown/riverfront location. Plus, parking is free. I'm a gold-level Hilton Honors member, and so I was given a $30 food-and-beverage credit which we used for breakfast in the morning.

Hopefully I'll have another opportunity to stay here again in the future!!

We booked two connecting rooms. Unfortunately, they either do not have connecting rooms with river views or they were all gone well in advance. This is the best hotel in Bay City in my opinion. It is clean, the rooms are spacious, there is a nice restaurant and fun bar. It is also a wedding venue because of its location, so the best rooms go early I think. Our connecting rooms were good for us due to young kids, but all the connecting room choices we had were equipped with two double beds - no king offerings. The beds were very comfortable. If you have a "city view" you want to be above the 2nd floor as the 2nd floor is level with the roof and you will need those blackout curtains due to lights shining from the roof to the hotel building. I would stay again, but would not stay on the 2nd floor again. Maid service is only upon request and we neglected to request in time. The pool is indoor and much better than most hotel indoor pools. Large hot tub next to it.

When we stay here on our Bay City visits, it feels like "coming home ".
The location of the facility is central to the downtown attractions, shopping (especially antique) and dining.
The check-in was welcoming and efficient.
The front desk staff were friendly and accommodating (especially in their responsiveness to our daily requests for a couple more of those wonderful chocolate-chip delights).
Our room was clean, comfortable and provided wonderful views of the river and bridge. It also provided views of some great sunsets in the evening, and moon sets in the early morning.
The Riverfront Grille provided are usual favorite breakfasts; steak & eggs, and classic eggs Benedict. And, as usual, the servers were attentive and responsive.
We also enjoyed the complimentary coffee service (a great accompanyament to the cookies).
Though we know it makes us (accurately) seem like old farts; but when 15 to 20 young hockey players and their adult cohorts thought that sitting in the hallway outside our door, rather then meeting in someone's room or in the lobby at 10:15 pm wasn't rather rude, we appreciated the hotel staff asked them to reassemble elsewhere.
We were scheduled for three nights, but were able to add on one more day.
We were confirmed in our thoughts that sitting in our room and enjoying room service, while watching the snow falling/blowing over the river, bridge & streets; was preferable to driving through the mess (especially, since the following day was clear and sunny).
All and all, this continues to be our favorite lodging when staying in the area.
We once again look forward to our next visit.

The hotel has small beds, thin walls that you can hear complete conversations through. The hallways smelled like marijuana. Gnats were swarming my daughter at breakfast and our sink was obviously not cleaned before our stay because there was male facial hair left over. I tried addressing these problems with Collin front desk manager, and he minimized my concerns. Promise you, it was one of the worst hotel experiences I have ever had!

They double/triple booked us with another group so they made us move to a low quality motel down the road. They didn't tell me they weren't doing room service so when I asked for it the second day they told me I would have to wait until the next day because I didn't ask for it in time. They didn't have coffee/tea set up for our conference a couple of times and it was difficult to find someone to help me. I had to walk back into the staff area to find someone.

I stayed for two nights in April 2022 and discovered a bed bug in my room after the second night. I captured it in a Ziplock bag and brought it to the front desk to be helpful in their handling of the issue. I left the hotel with bites on my ankles, legs, arms, chest and neck that continued to develop over the next 24-48 hours. While the front desk person was apologetic, the management is refusing to refund my stay and making it difficult to escalate the issue. At the time of checkout, the manager, Jim Stefanski, tried to hide in the office when I went to talk to him, referred me to the head of housekeeping, and finally said he would have to talk to his manager, Tom Kos, about it. After being put on hold over Easter weekend and enduring several days of him artfully dodging my phone calls, I am extremely frustrated. As of now they are not going to refund my stay and suggested I call a 1-800 number. The wait time on the call was predicted to be 29 minutes, so I went online to chat with a representative. They opened a ticket and asked for patience as it might take 5 days to get back to me. My patience is thin. I was miserable last weekend and spent a lot of time making sure my clothing and luggage were safe to return to my house. This is extremely poor customer care. If someone left my place of work the way I left theirs, I would be bending over backwards to make sure the situation was made right. Bed bugs could happen anywhere, but beware. While the bug situation is bad, the negligence by the management is just inconceivable.

We just loved this place. We booked a “river view” room and were happy we did. The staff in the lobby were very professional. Check-in was a breeze. It is a couple of blocks from all sorts of restaurants. We will be back!

The one thing that happened that seemed odd was that at 8:25am someone went down the hall knocking on doors announcing “housekeeping”. No matter who did it, a prank from someone or the housekeeping staff, it was annoying.

Great stay in a nice room with friendly staff. The location can't be beat--right on the river, next to the park (the kids, 4 and 8, were super excited about the playground adjacent to the parking lot), and maybe a five minute walk to the restaurants downtown. Bay City was a "lay-over" stop for us on our way from Niagara Falls to Sleeping Bear Dunes, and we were really glad we chose this town to stop in. A really nice community!

Staying one night in the Bay City area, I checked into Double Tree Hilton. The desk staff was friendly, the whole hotel-room, lobby, pool, and restaurant was very clean. Everyone, staff and guests wore their masks. Everyone was so polite and kind. The menu had many options and my frittata plate was warm so it kept my breakfast warm while I ate. The bartender, Abbey, Ashley, or something with an "A" was very pleasant. I could not have asked for better service.

We were here attending a business meeting and were pleasantly surprised by a great hotel, lovely view of the river, welcoming staff and delicious food. We had breakfast in the restaurant and a dinner on room service and everything was fresh, hot and flavorful. Room was clean and comfortable. It was a very short walk to their historic downtown area where we found some restaurants and interesting shops.
