The original six-story hotel wing at Grand Traverse Resort & Spa near Traverse City has undergone its most extensive renovation since opening in 1980. According to Communications Manager Caroline Rizzo, the $10.5 million project encompassed renovations in 242 guest rooms, including junior suites and hospitality suites, bathrooms, hallways, elevators, and corridors.
“Before the hotel renovation, our most recent was a three-year, $3 million total meeting space renovation (2019-21),” Rizzo reports. “The tower guest rooms were last updated in 2015.”
Including the tower, the resort has more than 550 guest rooms and 86,500 square feet of space for events. Additionally, the Beach Club has reopened with its waterfront pool, Fin’s Sandbar offering drinks and snacks, and private beach. “This is such a great amenity for our guests,” Rizzo says. “It is one of the only pools along a beach on Grand Traverse Bay.”
