Travel + Leisure magazine has distinguished The Inn at Bay Harbor one of the “500 World’s Best Hotels” for 2014.  The Inn, which is owned and operated by Boyne Resorts, is one of three hotels from Michigan to make the venerable award list, which is published annually in the January issue of the international travel magazine.

The 500 highest-rated hotels are selected by Travel + Leisure readers who rate hotels and resorts in categories of location, service, value, and dining options.

The Inn at Bay Harbor offers a stunning location nestled along Lake Michigan’s Little Traverse Bay and epitomizes turn-of-the-century style with the quaint splendor of a Victorian inn.  The hotel’s lobby features a towering Schonbek chandelier and a fire feature designed to encourage lounging and relaxation.  In the 134 guest rooms, including 84 one-, two- and three-bedroom suites, cottage-style elegance exudes throughout the spacious floor plans, and spectacular views are all around.  Resort amenities include a full-service spa and salon, two restaurants, outdoor patios, a lounge, fitness center, boutique shopping, and an endless array of nearby activities including plentiful winter recreation and award-winning golf.

“It is an honor to be named among the world’s most elite hotels,” said Ron Braniecki, general manager of The Inn at Bay Harbor.  “At The Inn, our associates cater to our guests every need and that level of superior service creates a truly one of a kind vacation experience, made even better by one of the most beautiful locations in the world.”

In celebration of the award, The Inn at Bay Harbor is offering a T+L 500 World’s Best Experiences Package—featuring overnight lodging with the resort’s signature rose petal turndown, couples’ Swedish massage, an intimate dinner in Sagamore’s Dining Room, and breakfast for two—starting at $500.
