We recently had a wedding and reception at the Double Tree. We were greeted upon check in with two hot cookies. We arrived from out of town and the wedding was at 3:00. Although check in is usually 4:00, they allowed us to check in a little early so we could freshen up before

My boyfriend and I wanted to do something special for our one year anniversary. We wanted to go somewhere and we were debating between Grand Rapids at the Amway Grand or some place more local given we live in Michigan and we didn't know what the weather was going to be like so

What a wonderful review. Thank you for elaborating about your great experience at the DoubleTree and Bay City. Just to address the parking lot issue, we also have a two-story parking structure that can be parked in when our lot is full. Thanks for the 5 Stars and see you next time! =)

Overall this hotel stay was great, although my biggest disappointment was my view, overlooking the roof and AC units. I did ask at check in if it had a view, and I was told it is facing the water. I guess technically yes, the water is behind the AC. But the check in staff was

Our river view rooms run about $10-20 more than a city view room. I'm assuming you were on a lower floor facing the city side because those show the roof of our Conference Center and the heating and cooling units with Bay City in the background. Next time you come, definitely get a view of the Saginaw River and request a higher floor, it's so worth it! Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay despite the view though =)

Booked two rooms the night before daughters wedding for her and her girls to spend the night and get ready prior to the wedding. Everyone was very helpful with things we forgot! Kudos to everyone who worked that afternoon when they checked in that night and the next morning.

The Doubletree in Bay City is a great place to stay. Love to get a room on the river. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and very well kept. The staff is friendly and efficient. The restaurant is very good as well as room service if you prefer.

What is the brand name of the hair dryers that are in the hotel rooms? Loved it!
That is a great question, I don't really remember but I am sure that if you ask the Hotel folks they will be able to let you know. I know my wife used the blowdryer and liked it.

How long has this hotel been open?
We opened in June 2004 as a new construction project. We have also continued minor renovations throughout the past 10 years and I am proud to say that the hotel still looks very clean and new. We hope you come for a visit soon!
