Grand Geneva Resort & Spa, a sprawling chalet-style property 10 minutes from Lake Geneva’s town center that takes inspiration from Frank Lloyd Wright's prairie-style architecture and design, is one of Wisconsin's best resorts (U.S. News & World Report Travel). 

Rooms are country chic with leather armchairs and antique-style furniture, plush cotton bedding, mini-refrigerators, complimentary coffee service and bottled water. The resort features seven different restaurants, cafes and lounges including the Geneva Chophouse and Ristorante Brissago, both winners of multiple OpenTable Diners' Choice awards. 

This resort feels like an enormous country club with two golf courses and multiple pools on site; guests can also access the nearby Timber Ridge sister resort with its 50,000-square-foot indoor water park, heated waterslides and a lazy river (passes available to guests for an additional fee).

The resort is located just 10 minutes from downtown Lake Geneva with its many boutique shops, restaurants, bars and public beach; Midwest Living magazine says the town -- sometimes referred to as "the Hamptons of the Midwest" -- is one of the Midwest's "Great Fall Color Getaways" and also a "Winter Wonderland."

Felt like we were treated differently for booking with Travelzoo. Room was stale & not as clean as previous stays. Heard barking dogs, the tested fire systems after 10pm (didn’t tell guests it was a test).

We were locked out of our room because of a keys issue. Wasted 20+ mins and no one showed up to open rooms after being told that someone was on the way.

Did not like the service fee of $25.00 per night, which I did not know about when booking. Hotel needs updating.

We had issues with ALL our keys getting demagnetized at the same time. We called multiple times from the house phone to be told that “someone from Public Safety” was on the way. No one turned up even after 3 calls, and 20 mins. Not impressed.

One cocktail waitress was very rude to us. She definitely needs customer service training.

House keeping was very disappointing, totally failed to visit our room on our first day there. Had to track down clean towels and after call to front desk, got coffee etc, but room was never serviced.
