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.
