We checked in at the Park Place and ventured up to the 10th floor for a fantastic view of the Grand Traverse Bay and it happened to be happy hour all day on Wednesday...bonus for us! It's a must do when you visit Traverse City.

Sitting up at the top of the hotel at night seeing all the lights on the peninsula and the boats is breathtaking. Very relaxing to sit there and have a 360 degree view around you...

Great views from this lounge which is on the 10th floor of the Park Place hotel. Although server was friendly, the overall service was terrible. Once we finally received our drinks, we wanted to order an app, but she never came back. Also, the lounge itself is nothing special; it's actually a bit dated.

The view and drinks were reasonably priced. Although it is a bit small and seating is at a premium. Great place to watch a sunset

The Beacon Lounge is a wonderful place with an amazing view of TC. Sitting on the 10th floor of the Park Place Hotel, it's a real experience, whether day or night. The waitresses are prompt and the drinks are fantastic. This is a REAL bar, the drinks are top notch. Every Thurs through Sun nights Tom is there playing the piano and singing. He's got a soft cocktail bar sound and he knows lots of the classics, and even takes requests. If he doesn't know a song that won't stop him. I told him my wife and I were celebrating our 11th anniversary and he asked what our song was. He looked it up on iTunes, played it through his speakers, and started playing along by ear. It was great! That was back over the winter and we're visiting again soon and hope to see and hear him.

Friday/Sat nights it gets busy, and there are only a few tables so get there early or be prepared to stand. The crowd is not your average "bar" crowd, it's a little more upscale so the people are generally polite and festive.The Beacon has become our "must go" place after dinner when visiting TC, which is a few times every year. That's saying something, since there are a zillion places we could choose.

We love the Beacon!
