The Mountain Grand Lodge and Spa at Boyne Mountain Resort in Northern Michigan has been named among the “Top 50 Ski Hotels” in Condé Nast Traveler’s Best Places to Ski & Stay in North America.  The sixteenth annual readers' survey  shares the best ski experiences from top mountain resorts in terms of terrain, speedy lifts and après ski hotels that provide the softest of landings.

The results of the Condé Nast Traveler poll were derived from the annual Readers’ Choice Survey with 28,876 respondents.  Candidates were rated on a five-point scale – excellent, very good, good, fair or poor on a variety of criteria including rooms, service, dining/food, location, overall design and activities/facilities.  Criterion scores representing the percentage of respondents rating a hotel excellent or very good were averaged to determine the overall score.  Only hotels that received a required minimum number of responses were eligible for inclusion in the rankings.
