When it’s time to pack up the family and head for a stay in Michigan’s capital region, you may want to look for a hotel that offers something that everyone can enjoy. And what we mean, is to look for accommodations that come with a pool. It’s a fact that kids return from a vacation that's chock full of new adventures, yet all they remember is the pool time that they shared with the family. You can find all kinds of other amenities at the hotel besides the pool, but don’t forget that splash time equals family memories.
