“great romantic getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014

We were looking for a quick get away, and found this gem. From Chicago, it was about an hour and a half drive. Great service, and about 15 minutes from anything you would want to do. We were late on booking vineyard tours and they were all booked, but still had an amazing time on our own self guided tour of 4 vineyards. The hotel has massage therapists that are on call and come in for your appointments. The couples massage was great!!! The hotel has free bike rentals, which was nice. We rode our bikes into town for dinner and drinks at Casey's. You full out the breakfast order sheet, and your selections are delivered to your site in the morning in a picnic basket. This made for a very sweet breakfast in bed. The restaurant in the hotel had great food and service. The outside patio offered great views for cocktails and dining. We went to a movie one night, and the casino another. Both were so close which was great. Other nearby activities were apple orchards for apple picking, vineyards, whiskey distillery, antique malls, Pumpkin patch. The hotel also gives you a list of the nearby activities and their locations. The room was a huge two room suite. Very clean, spacious and comfortable.

We stayed at the hotel in November to celebrate an important birthday. The location is super, with view of the harbor. The service was good. The beds are excellent, but for the price, the room was quite cramped. The biggest disappointment was the breakfast. We had no idea that during the off-season the hotel serves no cooked breakfast. All breakfasts are delivered to your room and consist of a choice of muffins, yoghurt, a cold boiled egg etc. This hotel is great for a summer vacation, but not in the off-season.

This small hotel impresses me. The front desk personnel were very helpful. We stayed on the 3rd floor in a King Harbor view with a fireplace. The bedding and beds were just right. Our stay included complimentary wine and cheese delivered to our room. The hotel is very comfortable and cozy.

We have stayed at the Harbor Grand several times and have always enjoyed it. We like the rooms with the marina view and the fireplace. It is close to many restaurants in New Buffalo. The breakfast that is delivered to your room is good. The price is high, but we enjoy the convenient location.

We stayed at Harbor Grand for 2 nights after the town's busy week end Fall Festival. We were loved the hospitality and our comfortable fireplace room overlooking the harbor. We enjoyed the in-room breakfast, pool and dinner at The Terrace. The massage room (extra charge) was a special treat for both of us to enjoy together. Living north of Chicago, we look forward to returning.

Room Tip: 3rd floor facing overlooking both the harbor and the restaurant fire pit for outdoor dining.

This is an old hotel, but updated and well maintained--very clean. The shower has 2 shower heads and is spectacular! Very nice continental breakfast delivered to the room. You can walk a block to a public beach on Lake Michigan. New Buffalo is a very cute town with nice restaurants and shops.
