Midwest Living Review
Hotel Iroquois sparkles. White clapboard shines, bay windows glitter and flower boxes bloom. Inside, 46 suites and rooms feature muted pastels, plantation shutters, delicate florals, cheery window treatments and modern, freshly appointed bathrooms. And guests have access to a small private beach. The Iroquois extends its luxury treatment to the Carriage House dining room, a stunning space with fine cuisine. The seafood salad and gazpacho are perfect summertime lunch fare, while the sophisticated dinner menu offers options like a jumbo lump crab tower with avocado. As throughout the island, fresh-caught whitefish prevails on the menu. An extensive, balanced wine list draws, too. Enjoy a pleasantly remote view of the bustling downtown from a comfy perch in the wicker club chairs on the elegant veranda. While the Iroquois' island chic is more urbane than other area inns, its Midwestern attention to detail and hospitality remain consistent. The Iroquois is not inexpensive, but sincere luxury rarely is. Rooms from $215 off season, $290 in season; dinner entrees from $28.
