The Neighborhood Hotel Grand Beach Wins Tripadvisor Travelers’ Choice Award 2024

Exciting news: The Neighborhood Hotel Grand Beach has been recognized in Tripadvisor’s® Travelers’ Choice® Awards for 2024! The award honors businesses that consistently earn great reviews, placing them among the top 10% of listings around the world on Tripadvisor. 

As the world’s largest travel guidance platform, Tripadvisor has unparalleled authority with travelers and diners. This award is based on genuine feedback from anyone in the community who has visited and left an authentic, first-hand review on Tripadvisor over a 12-month period, making it a valuable and trustworthy designation of great places to visit. 

“Each Neighborhood Hotel has a story. In Grand Beach, we embraced the surroundings while preserving and honoring the roadside inn’s storied history (think: gangsters, gamblers, and famous boxers of the 1930s) throughout the renovation process. A heavy boxing bag in the game room serves as a nod to the famous boxers of the era who would stay at the inn while photos of found objects in the old walls grace the new walls. We’re proud of our scrappy start-up — to open four properties in 4 years, all with such high Tripadvisor reviews and huge guest satisfaction. We’re very grateful,” says Jonathan Gordon, Founder and CEO of The Neighborhood Hotel.

Michigan’s southwest coast, Harbor Country, has welcomed generations of visitors to enjoy lovely beaches and an overall relaxed lifestyle. The state’s slogan, Pure Michigan, is quickly apparent as you swim through Lake Michigan, enjoy beer and wine tastings at the many family-owned vineyards, trek to the top of massive sand dunes, or paddle a canoe around the smaller, inland lakes. Southwest Michigan is a mecca of family-friendly beach towns with great shopping and dining — have fun exploring or fully chilling! Fun fact: Grand Beach was designed as a resort community way back in the day & the stately white gates have welcomed visitors since the early 1900’s while the golf course dates back to 1911.

“Congratulations to The Neighborhood Hotel Grand Beach on its recognition in Tripadvisor’s Travelers’ Choice Awards for 2024,” said John Boris, Chief Growth Officer at Tripadvisor. “Travelers’ Choice honors businesses that consistently demonstrate a commitment to hospitality excellence. This means you have made such a memorable impact on your visitors that many of them took the time to go online and leave a great review about their experience. People rely on Tripadvisor’s Travelers’ Choice seal to help them navigate the myriad of things to see, eat and do across the globe. We hope this recognition continues to drive business to you in 2024 and beyond.”
