We used Hotel Nichols as an accommodation option for our wedding guests, and they were fantastic to work with. The rooms were lovely and the service was amazing. Our guests felt right at home the entire weekend and had nothing but good things to say about their experience. Maegan and her team are incredible!

The hotel was great! Disappointed that we couldn’t stay longer… Visited South Haven for the New Year’s Eve event and the hotel staff had a celebration for their guests as well. The family had a wonderful time and the hotel made it all the better!
