Request a Room

Guests may request a room in advance or at the time of need for either the McNally Hospitality House or Emerson Hospitality House by phone only. Please call 989-583-0155 any day of the week at any time to be connected to the front desk. Accommodation requests are sometimes in high demand and uncertainty of when a patient will be discharged makes it difficult to predict room availability. Guest rooms are available on a first-come-first-served basis.

The admitting office, information desk, nursing staff, social workers or chaplains of the hospitals also refer guests to our hospitality houses, both as prearrangements and at time of need. If referrals and/or arrangements are made ahead of time, guests are asked to call the day before their arrival to confirm their need of the room.

Room rates are $30 for the first guest, with additional guests being $10 per night. (Special arrangements can be made with the Operations Manager/Executive Director if someone is in need of accommodations, but unable to contribute; insurance coverage of donation fee may be available to families of children in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.) This donation doesn’t cover the full cost of a night’s stay but helps toward operational expenses. Additional donations are welcomed and much appreciated.
