Grand Traverse Resort and Spa Hotel Review: This is the region's largest full-service, year-round resort and conference center. Its Tower building offers 186 rooms and suites with wet bars, while the main building --- near the restaurants, lounges, shops and spa --- features 240 rooms. In 2015 all of the Tower rooms were upgraded to incorporate suggestions from guests. Another option is to book a one-, two- or three-bedroom condominium along the fairways or the shores of the bay. Groups from 10 to 2,500 can be accommodated with the 86,500 square-feet of flexible meeting space, and conference attendees need not look far for relaxing activities. Three golf courses are available with a clubhouse, electric carts with canopies, ball washers, golf-club rental, beverage carts and restaurant. Not a golf fan? There's also tennis, jet skis, pedal boats, swimming, and in the winter cross country ski trails, snowshoeing, skating, nearby off-property snowmobiling and horse-drawn sleigh rides. A 100,000-square-foot indoor-outdoor health club offers 11 multipurpose rooms. Enjoy midwest fare at Sweetwater American Bistro, regional American fine dining at Aerie Restaurant & Lounge and post-golf-game fare at The Grille.
