Michigan Best Western rebrands as Magnuson Grand Hotel – Lakefront Paradise

December 14, 2011

Magnuson Hotels, the world’s largest independent hotel group, announced today the complete rebranding of the Magnuson Grand Hotel – Lakefront Paradise. Formerly a Best Western of eleven years, the 41-room luxury hotel seeks to upgrade its local, regional and national market position through its affiliation with the Magnuson Grand Hotels brand designation.

“We didn’t like being forced to make unnecessary changes with high costs by a certain deadline, which is what our previous franchise was doing,” stated hotel owners Jim and Shirley Stabile. “We are very excited to have control over what is best for our customers,” added General Manager Laurie Winkler.

Corporate, educational, government and leisure travelers will enjoy the 100% non-smoking Magnuson Grand Hotel – Lakefront Paradise and have plenty of activities to choose from. The nearby Tahquamenon Fall State Parks boasts the 2nd largest waterfall east of the Mississippi, and there are dozens of nearby snowmobiling and hiking trails. Just a short drive away is the Whitefish Point Light Station that was established by Congress in 1849 and has continuously operated a life-saving beacon to protect mariners traversing the Great Lakes.

To make traveling even easier, this Paradise, Michigan hotel comes equipped with an indoor heated swimming pool, hot tub, and sauna. Guest will enjoy the sandy beach located right on the hotel grounds plus convenient parking for large trucks and snowmobile trailers.

“Guests will love the variety of activities near the Magnuson Grand Hotel – Lakefront Paradise. We are proud to welcome Ms. Winkler and her staff, and are committed to increasing their property visibility and reservations,” stated Thomas Magnuson, CEO.

As a Magnuson Hotels affiliate, the Magnuson Grand Hotel Lakefront Paradise will receive complete brand representation across North America and the UK, without the costs and requirements of franchise brand affiliation.
