Baymont by Wyndham Traverse City

In a community celebrated for its “sweet water” lakes, there’s something unique and appealing about the saltwater experience at Baymont by Wyndham (formerly Baymont Inn & Suites). “Our indoor, saltwater pool is a huge draw,” explains General Manager, Laura LaParr. “Guests love the slightly cooler water and the fact that it’s gentler on your skin and hair.” Both the pool and hot tub use saltwater, with bromine added to the hot tub, due to the heat. 

Guests enjoying the pool will also notice the hotel’s brand new patio. It accommodates 15-20 guests and is perfect for enjoying the fresh outdoors that encompass the property. (Located just off Us-31, the property was built in a valley and is surrounded by woods, which creates a peaceful setting, despite being just off the main road.) 

The pool and patio aren’t the only thing guests will notice at Baymont. The property, which underwent a management change a year ago, is completing a comprehensive renovation. It now offers adjoining room scenarios—ideal for families—so parents can enjoy some privacy, while also being close to the kids. Additionally, all the rooms have a fresh, new look with a contemporary color scheme. They also have new furniture, done in stylish Espresso wood. The rooms also have stand alone closets, another smart upgrade that adds convenience.  

Certainly one of the most beautiful aspects of Baymont, however, is its close proximity to Traverse City and major points of interest. “Popular restaurants, like Applebee’s and La Senorita, are walking distance from here,” states LaParr. “We’re just a short drive to downtown. Of course, if you want to day trip, you have your pick of wineries, beaches, shopping…you name it. It’s all pretty much right outside your door.”
