We visit Michigan often and this was our second stay to the Harbor Grand with two teenagers. You seriously couldn’t ask for anything more. The vicinity of the hotel is perfect. You’re within walking distance to the beach, the downtown, restaurants, etc.
The inn has plenty for kids/teens - a great pool and hottub, free bicycle rentals, free DVD’s and free smores in the evening. Breakfast delivered to your room is also included, as well as free coffee and/or tea 24/7 in the lobby.
If you’re traveling with kids, be sure to reserve a village view suite, as it has a separate bedroom and TV along with closet. The other room has a pullout bed and enough room for an inflatable bed and a second TV. The room does not overlook the harbor, but both the deck of the restaurant and pool has balconies which you can utilize anytime.
We ordered wine at their restaurant, but visited their sister hotel, Brenwood Tavern at the Marine Harbor, for dinner which was excellent. Brentwood Tavern has great outdoor seating, weather permitting.
Other area restaurants not to be missed include Brewster’s (great Italian food), Stray Dog (bar food and local hangout) and Redamak’s (famous burgers).
Wine tours and the Michigan City casino and outlet mall are all in close proximity.
