Where We Stayed: Marquette, MI

sunny 80 °F

The Comfort Suites Marquette is a couple of miles away from downtown on US 41, one of the main thoroughfares in Marquette. Even though this was not one of the hotels where my sister-in-law had reserved a block of rooms for wedding guests, we chose it for the on-site breakfast and because we thought that the suite-style rooms would give us more space to spread out. The hotel also had very good reviews on Trip Advisor. There was breakfast as promised, and the customer service was good: the staff called us shortly after check-in to make sure everything was OK with the room. The room was fine, but not as large as we had hoped. It had everything you'd expect in a suite, but it really wasn't any bigger than a standard-sized room with 2 double beds in other hotel chains. Maybe it is the typical size of a Comfort Suites room, though.

One thing that seemed a little unusual is that every room is automatically charged $1.50 per day for use of the in-room safe. I have heard of charges for safes before, but this was the first time I can recall seeing it as an automatic charge. To the management's credit, there is a sign at the front desk notifying guests of the charge and explaining that those who don't use the safe can ask to have the charge removed at check-out. We never used our safe, so we asked to have the charge removed, and the staff person checking us out was very pleasant about it. The downside is that people who want to do express check-out essentially pay the safe charge to have that convenience.

Breakfast: The complementary breakfast was extensive and very good. Their selection of hot choices rotated daily. While we were there, they offered biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, and egg patties with sausage or bacon to make bagel breakfast sandwiches. They also had chocolate and regular batter for the waffle maker every day.
