Explore Hotel

The hotel is the only one in the state that is nestled into the shimmering shores of Lake Michigan. Located just 40 minutes from both Chicago and Milwaukee within Illinois Beach State Park, where the site is known for over 4000 acres of beach, dunes, wetlands, prairie, and oak savanna. The hotel sets against the beautiful backdrop of a Lake Michigan sunrise. Hotel guests can step out of the lobby and stroll along the shore, explore the state park or just lounge on the sand and soak up the sun. The expansive lobby features floor to ceiling windows displaying panoramic views of the lake below. The hotel also offers a full-service restaurant and lounge. Guests can take advantage of the fitness club with its impressive atrium style pool and hot tub. Ultimate relaxation can be achieved by scheduling a massage in the on-site spa. The hotel features guest rooms and suites for any manner of occasion. The rooms are welcoming and exude an art deco elegance that reflects the original styling of the hotel with a distinctly modern feel. Guests can choose from several room styles with views of the state park or windows and balconies overlooking Lake Michigan. As a popular wedding venue, vacation destination and group meeting venue, our hotel captures your curiosity and imagination.
