This is a nice property. It has the amenities one would normally expect from a big-city hotel -- way beyond the motor lodges that one usually finds in the UP. It has a great view of Whitefish Bay. Unfortunately, construction work on the Soo locks raised the lake level, which destroyed their beach in August 2013. It should eventually recover once the lake returns to its "normal" level, but if you're planning on using the beach, call first and speak with the friendly folks at the front desk before you book. Their wireless internet wasn't at all reliable in my room on the second floor, although I didn't let them know about it (perhaps they would have fixed it if I had said something). Verizon cellular customers will find a solid 4G signal there. Room had a smallish flat screen television; never turned it on; who needs to in such a beautiful place? I'm not a traditional breakfast person, but the free breakfast in the lobby looked great. There was an interesting-looking automatic pancake machine there. The indoor pool was clean and warm -- great for relaxing after an active day (or inactive too, I suppose).
