TRAVERSE CITY, Michigan— Grand Traverse Resort and Spa in Traverse City, Michigan, is nearing completion of a $10.5 million renovation of the original six-story hotel.
“This is the resort’s most expansive renovation project to date,” General Manager Matthew Bryant said. “We have increased our guest room number in the hotel from 239 to 242 and added two new junior suites. These rooms provide comfort and style unlike anything else in the area.”
Construction began in November 2022 and includes a total transformation of the resort’s hotel. The resort added two new junior suites and updated all guest rooms, bathrooms, corridors, elevators, four public restrooms and four hospitality suites. Interior finishes provide rich textures and nature-inspired neutral palettes to deliver a modern, organic and refined feel.
“Grand Traverse Resort and Spa is a landmark in northern Michigan,” Bryant said. “We brought the beauty of northern Michigan into the rooms while also celebrating our owners, the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians, with artwork and décor.”
As northern Michigan’s largest conference and convention center, Grand Traverse Resort and Spa is a popular destination for corporate meetings and events. The resort has more than 550 total guest rooms and 86,500 square feet of newly renovated meeting space, with more than 20 unique indoor and outdoor venues. Function space includes the flexible 19,300-square-foot Governors’ Hall, flexible 9,200-square-foot Michigan Ballroom, two exhibit halls and a wide range of smaller conference rooms.
Each guest room includes a 55-inch smart TV, k-cup style coffee maker and power units with USB plug-ins.
“These new hotel rooms feature all the amenities our corporate guests need while here on business,” said Katie Leonard, director of sales.
In addition to the updated hotel rooms, resort amenities include casual fine dining, three championship golf courses, an award-winning spa, a private beach club and a 100,000-square-foot health club.
