I've stayed here several times and this is NOT your typical Marriott! Wow, what a view over Lake Michigan! Bay Harbor is a high end resort community catering to golfing and boating. The golf course is a once in a lifetime treat. But the Inn isn't far behind, especially the Spa. The restaurants are superb, the entertainment is great, and...

I stayed at the Bay Harbor Inn for 3 nights during a business trip. The property is beautiful and well maintained and in a nice area of town. My room was a suite with a separate bedroom and livingroom as well as a small open kitchen. The living room had a gas fire place which I enjoyed in the evening...

The property is beautiful but in need of some attention. I know I am paying for the location and view but a Marriott Renaissance should be better maintained. Simple fixes for the problems I encountered. Paint chipped on the walls of the suite and hallways by luggage and luggage carts could be fixed with just a dab of touch up...

We stayed at the resort this past weekend in a king lake view suite. When we arrived at the hotel, the valet, check in and staff were very friendly and welcoming. The lobby is clean and fresh, however I cannot say the same about the guest suites. The rooms are dated and very poorly maintained. The guest room walls were...

We spent just one night here during our Circle Tour of Lake Michigan, and had a very comfortable quiet room with a wonderful lake view balcony. The restaurant staff at breakfast were energetic and seemed to be enjoying their jobs and working together, it's nice to watch a successful team function.

I've lived in Michigan most of my life and I can't believe how long it took me to discover this wonderful area just a few hours away. I've never spent more than a day or two in Northern Michigan but we just returned from a week at this beautiful resort and can't wait to plan our next stay. There was...

This is a great hotel with lots of sporting activities as well as good dining. I used my Marriott points and felt it was a solid value. It is a modern Victorian Style hotel with contemporary look. Service was OK, except that the concierge really did not know the area well. The Front Desk staff were very helpful and accommodating....

We spent Labor Day weekend at Bay Harbor and the space is nicely landscaped with well thought out seating. The pool area is adjoined by a nice bar and there's a fire pit overlooking the lake surrounded by adirondack chairs where they make smores in the evening. The problem is that at noon the following day the area was still...

Not sure why I see reviews about it being outdated and not very nice. This place is very nice and though some updating could be done, it still has a very nice resort/cottage feel. Many rooms face the water and the back area is very comfortable for eating, playing, etc. Great place...

When we arrived our room was not ready, even though the hotel was expecting us at 2pm for early check in. We waited at the outdoor bar for 1 hour and 45 min until the room was ready. The cabana style bar was dirty, and the 5 staff members were too busy watching tv to do anything else. When we...

“Choose a lake view room. They are constantly developing, so a resort view room may mean a construction view room.”
