10 Best Hotels with Outdoor Pools Michigan (Many Offer Spectacular Water, Beach or Marina Views!)

10 Best Hotels with Outdoor Pools Michigan | Sherry Trautman | Traveling Michigan

One of the best things about vacationing and staying in a nice hotel in Michigan is the amenities.  We rarely book a hotel just for a place to sleep. 

We love exploring, hiking or biking all day and then coming back to our hotel early enough to go swimming, walk the beach, lounge on the balcony or grab a drink.  As such, I'm always searching for spectacular amenities such as hotels with spectacular outdoor pools.
