This is a very nice resort, albeit removed from all the action of downtown Traverse City. The Tower Rooms have been redone magnificently and are a huge improvement. Loved the new décor and furnishings, until I got ready for bed. Soiled linen with black hairs on the pillows. Disgusted and disappointed. Called the Front desk who did not answer for...

We stayed at this hotel for a wedding on property and were very pleased with our Tower room and the amenities offered at the hotel. The children's pool and fitness center were very nice and there were ample dining options to choose from on site. Our first Tower room was on the 3rd floor and faced the roof and had...

I stayed here again for a work function and, once again, was not disappointed. The hotel was full and I was housed in a condo which was nice. The condos I stayed in would be great in the summer as they are on the water with a nice pool area. There is a shuttle running back and forth from the...

A beautiful resort in a beautiful location. Room was clean, nicely decorated and spacious. Staff was very attentive and eager to support the guests' needs. Spa experience was outstanding. Aerie Restaurant offered a delicious selection of appetizers, dinner entrees and desserts. The sunsets from the huge windows were spectacular. Shopping was fun in a variety of shops off the lobby....

Stayed at the Grand Traverse Resort while husband was attending a meeting. Husband golfed The Bear, a challenging but beautiful course, the day before. The rooms were clean though becoming dated (we were not in the tower). There was some noise that could be heard from the TV in the neighboring room that was distracting occasionally. The hotel lobby was...

Love the Grand Traverse resort! Stayed in the tower rooms - very comfortable and cozy...and clean! The staff are friendly and hard working and available to assist. The concierge was helpful to navigating us to the Turtle Creek casino and offering suggestions of things to do in the area. If you like golf, the course looks amazing. For fall colors...

We visited The Grand Traverse Resort and Spa mainly for the opportunity to play Wolverine as it's rare to find a Gary Player course in the USA. While I loved the variety of holes involving water on the front nine and the elevation and views of Traverse Bay on the back, my spouse actually preferred the tougher Jack Nicklaus Bear...

So we stayed at the shores condo situated about 5mins away from the main facility of the GTR&S. Needless to say we were just seconds away from the beautiful beach. Since we were in the 2nd row of the condos our view of the beach were partially obstructed (try getting the 1st row) this is were I knocked of my...

I stayed at this hotel for a work conference in August 2016. The room I had was not in the tower, but the front desk staff kindly fulfilled my request for a room far away from the elevator. The room was decent, perfectly fine for a conference but a little underwhelming if I was spending my own money. The beds...

When we arrived for our 2 night stay we were surprised that we were not in a tower king room; we were in the older part of the main hotel. That was on me since I didn't notice that my confirmation didn't say TOWER KING, I guess it was switched from tower to regular room when I clicked on the...
