Midwest Living Review
A real benefit of staying at a boutique hotel is the relatively higher level of personal service you receive. The 55-room Harbor Grand Hotel is no exception. As a guest here, you'll get complimentary breakfast delivered to your room. You can take advantage of the hotel's 24-hour Ben & Jerry's ice cream delivery to handle those post-beach-time (or midnight) cravings. The lobby has fresh coffee (locally roasted) and teas available around the clock, too. Guests also have full access to Harbor Grand's high-speed internet, DVD library, beach cruiser bikes, beach towels and sand chairs--for free. Note that the indoor pool and harbor view sun deck have towel service, too. Other hotel amenities we love are the professionally staffed massage center (reservations definitely recommended) and the Terrace Room, a wine bar and lounge with a wonderful wine list and bistro-style menu. The design of the hotel is inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's Prairie School of Architecture, so your stay will be pretty as well as comfortable. Though it might be difficult to pry yourself out of such a luxurious place, at Harbor Grand you're right in the heart of southwest Michigan's dune hiking, charter fishing, shops and galleries, dining and even surfing. A full day will make that Ben & Jerry's all the better! From $189.
