Hotel Walloon Awarded AAA Four Diamond Rating

Hotel Walloon is pleased to announce its recent news of achieving AAA Four Diamond Rating for the second year in a row, recognizing the luxury boutique property as a premier lodging destination and a select accommodation for travelers throughout Michigan, North America and Worldwide.

Hotel Walloon is one of only two hotels in Northern Michigan (and only 17 statewide) to receive this coveted award from AAA, which was founded more than 100 years ago and is considered a leader in travel industry. The award was presented this spring at the Pure Michigan Governor’s Conference on Tourism in Detroit, in front of a record crowd of more than 1000 hospitality and travel leaders.

Achieving a AAA Four Diamond Rating means that AAA values Hotel Walloon as a “refined stylish hotel with upscale physical attributes, extensive amenities and a high degree of hospitality, service and attention to detail.” Just 5.9 percent of the nearly 28,000 hotels approved by AAA in North American and the Caribbean make the Four Diamond List.

“Hotel Walloon is extremely honored to receive the AAA Four Diamond distinction for the second year in a row,” says Marc Jacobs, Hotel Walloon General Manager. “A recent guest shared this comment about her stay with us: ‘I honestly don’t think I’ve stayed in a hotel where everyone was to such a high-level caliber of service and friendliness.’ Hotel Walloon is working hard to make every guest feel this way.”

Centrally-located between Petoskey, Boyne City and Charlevoix, the four-season Hotel Walloon gives guests access to the unlimited adventure that Northern Michigan has to offer—from outdoor recreation, history, arts, culture and more. Situated along 90-feet of the shoreline of historic Walloon Lake, the three-story, 32-room property opened in May 2015 and offers valet and concierge service, complimentary food service throughout the day and a private bar for guests. Hotel Walloon strives to maintain privacy for all guests by offering private beach access, outdoor heated spa and a billiards room. Guest rooms feature state-of-the-art technology, marble heated floors in the bathrooms and twice daily housekeeping services. Throughout the hotel, one will notice attention to detail and a flair for vintage elegance in every way.
