    Courtyard Traverse City
    Traverse City, MI
    3-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 220 reviewsTripAdvisor (220)
    Free WiFi

    The Courtyard Traverse City sits across the street from the Grand Traverse Mall, which offers many dining, shopping and entertainment options for guests. Each of the 83 guest rooms was renovated in 2016 and features a spacious workstation, a flat-screen TV, a coffee maker, cotton-rich linens and complimentary Wi-Fi access. On-site, visitors will find a fitness center and an indoor pool for recreation – but the hotel doesn’t provide a complimentary breakfast, which is a deterrent for some recent guests. And while the location certainly isn’t remote, it is about a 5-mile drive to downtown Traverse City, Michigan, where many of the city’s tourist attractions reside. Since this Courtyard is a part of the Marriott family, guests who are members of the Marriott Rewards program can earn and redeem points while staying here.
