Our Hotel

Overlooking West Grand Traverse Bay, in the midst of the vibrant Warehouse District of Downtown Traverse City, our lavish accommodations feature sophisticated touches designed with our story in mind. Standing among revamped lumberyards, sawmills, and canneries, Hotel Indigo® Traverse City reflects the new life and vibrant spirit of our waterfront Warehouse District neighborhood. We also pay homage to its past —  the kind of logging history that could sprout tall tales like Paul Bunyan's — with modern guest rooms featuring wood details a 19th-century white-pine lumber baron would love. Guests can start their day here with locally brewed coffee before heading out to taste Michigan's famous tart cherries — each July, the National Cherry Festival unfolds in front of the hotel in this city which, today, produces about 75 percent of the tart cherries grown in the United States. The freshwater beaches of the bay nearby are ready for travelers to explore as well. Guests can unwind at our sawmill-inspired rooftop bar (seasonal) for views of West Grand Traverse Bay paired with local craft brews and wine or dine in our elegant lobby bar looking at West Grand Traverse Bay.
