“Last minute booking turned out to be a LUCKY STRIKE!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

PASS UP THE PARK PLACE HOTEL!!!!! YOU WILL GLAD YOU DID!!!!

Cambria Suites undoubtedly BEATS OUT PARK...on EVERY level!

My family was disappointed that we would not be centrally located right in town as we were last time, Park has indeed a GREAT location, however, after experiencing Cambria's shuttle you will NOT go back to Park for their location! The shuttle service is SO CONVENIENT, super friendly staff, so accommodating, you will be glad you booked at Cambria.

The moment we walked in we understood right away why Cambria has such phenomenal reviews. I was a bit skeptical as their website does not do their property any justice. Let me tell you, their service is FLAWLESS! YES, their staff is WELL versed in customer service. They are very personable and engaging.

The rooms are spacious, SUPER white glove clean!
The little living room area with the second t.v. is truly a great bonus.
The bathroom has a comfortable layout as well.

I have to say, the ENTIRE property was really well thought out, the bar is very inviting, their bartender was extremely attentive. Their lobby is spacious and very accommodating.

The lobby staff cares about your overall experience as where Park Place you are just a number. I am so glad they were rude and unprofessional ...we were able to experience this hotel & it made our weekend that much better.


TOP HOTEL SERVICE I HAVE SEEN IN A LONG TIME!!! OLD SCHOOL CUSTOMER SERVICE.... you can't beat it!

Room Tip: Request a room AWAY from the elevators.....

Can't imagine a better place to stay. First of all, I love the Cambria chain generally. It's like a Westin, only more affordable. This hotel has a great gym, a good breakfast, comfortable, clean rooms, and a central location. Also near a lovely park and close to the water. It is where I want to stay in Traverse City.

Cambria is the fanciest of the Choice Hotels brands which includes Quality Inn, Comfort Inn, etc. It was exactly what we expected, a well equipped suite - very nicely decorated. This hotel is near the lake but not on it. But the price was quite reasonable compared to the resort type places that are nearer the water. They have a popular bar and sort of restaurant in the lobby where you can buy breakfast (no "free" continental). The staff was great. Everything seemed to work, no unpleasant surprises. We were there in early May 2013, the first good weather weekend in northern Michigan.

This place is amazingly CLEAN! We stayed the night and used the pool and hot tub and fitness center...all spotless...Went to Happy Hour and had great food and drinks and of course it was all spotless too! Sparkling glasses and silverware....tasty, well prepared food. The staff there, from the front desk to the maintenance folks, to the ladies in the breakfast buffet were all smiling and professionally attired and really paid attention to all clients. I felt well cared for and enjoyed my stay in every way! STRONGLY recommend the Cambria Suites in TC Michigan. Great free shuttle to downtown shopping and dining too!

The staff were helpful and went out of their way to make sure we were doing well - an A+ for customer service. The exercise room was large but the pool was laughably small - more of a duck pond! The room was spacious. While the first part of the night was very quiet, our neighbor's TV was loud enough to be a bother and make it hard to get to sleep. Expect to pay extra for the breakfast. However, for the room price I think a muffin and coffee (or more) is not too much to ask for. Given the large happy hour crowd plus the extra charge for breakfast, this is less than ideal for families with kids.

This hotel has everything one is looking for in a hotel. Convenience as to location. Easy to find and close to everything. REFLECT is a very good restaurant located in the hotel which offers a good dinner menu. Excellent workout room as well as a pool. They also have an onsite bar which offers happy hour each day along with appetizers. If you are there on a Saturday, be sure you get there a few minutes before happy hour to secure a seat as there were people lined up to be seated. I never saw a hotel bar get so much business as several local patronize it. Our room was a king suite which was very clean and large enough. Overall, our stay was pleasant.

I really enjoyed the room at the Cambria Suites. I tried one of the larger rooms on the 3rd floor. The furnishings were very nice and new, and the bed was comfortable. It was nice to have the separate area with a large TV instead of having to hang out on the bed. The bathroom was very spacious and clean, and the Bath and Body works sundries were a nice surprise. The only things I woudl possibly remark negatively upon was the noise level in the room. The road noise from outside was a little loud, but quieted down after dark. Also, the hotel had a jazz group giving a concert in the lobby and the noise (and bass) were still a bit disturbing even though I was on the 3rd floor. Overall, I agree with other reviewers and would rate this as a nice hotel option in TC. I did feel it was rather expensive considering this is not the high season for travel to TC and it is not on the water, but the room was probably worth it considering the other options in town.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the main road may have some traffic noise.
