Right on Riverwalk, close to quaint downtown, nice exercise facility and pool, wish we could have stayed longer and explored more. Room was nicely appointed, quiet, comfy bed, attractive bath. View of river. Only ate a goat cheese and spinach salad in evening, but it was delicious and breakfast was tasty. Our server, Laura was delightful. All around a very... More

The hotel is luxurious and the staff are friendly.Location is excellent -at the riverfront, near downtown. Bay City is a bit depressed but this area is on the riverfront/park. Very handy to sailing the Appledorn sailing schooner.

It took the staff a long time to acknowledge myself and my daughter as we stood at the front desk waiting to check in for almost 10 mins. Very clean room, room service was very good and quick as well.

Best place to stay in Bay City with a quality facility, good breakfast options and a premium location on the river. A/C unit makes a lot of noise, but we were tired and slept well. A summer festival on the river had REO Speedwagon playing live until 11:00pm as if it were on our side of the river...

Stayed here for three days. It was OK, nothing special or really memorable. We initially got a city view (which means you get to look over the roof of the convention center) and the fridge was broken. Got moved to a river-view room (which was the same room, but a better view and a working fridge). The breakfast buffet was... More

We called on short notice last Thursday for a Friday reservation and was able to secure a room. We were coming from a cottage and arrived hours before checkin. The front desk associate was able to determine our room was ready and we were able to check in right away. The service was outstanding. The room was immaculate and spacious,... More

The room was nice and comfortable, with a nice view of the river. Personnel were also very nice. Restaurant's steak was horrible, more like cardboard, and very disappointing. They did take the charge off our bill, and the hamburger was very good!
