Magical experience during 4th of July weekend last summer along with celebrating my MIL's 69th birthday. Everything about the long weekend was worth it. Room was excellent and spacious. Grounds and hotel lobby were wonderful to just walk around and enjoy - not to mention sitting and relaxing on the worlds largest and best front porch. Service was impeccable and...

My husband wanted us to stay at this once in a lifetime, grand hotel. I found the reservation agent to be very unhelpful. I am not from that area and the rooms are quite costly. It was difficult to get her to explain the disparity between the internet rates and the phone reservation rates. I made the reservation in a...

I am sorry that you had difficulty in making reservations and with one of our reservation agents when opting to cancel. We are very family friendly, and I believe the agent was trying to convey that your child does not need to participate in our Children's Program to eat in the Main Dining Room, or at any of our restaurants....

Mackinaw Island takes you back in time. We first saw the movie Somewhere In Time. We fell in love with the Island and the Grand Hotel. The Hotel this year I believe 135 yrs old. It is like no other. A Victorian theme throughout the Hotel. Hotel staff and management are very friendly, helpful in everyway. A golf course is...

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights on 25th march for my husbands 50th birthday. The staff gave us a wonderful room with a beautiful view and the card and chocolates in the room added that personal touch. We have been coming to The Grand for the last 15 years or so and we have never been disappointed....

If you are visiting Mackinac Island once in your life, don't screw it up and miss STAYING at the Grand Hotel. This is when being cheap is a really bad decision, and no, just walking up the hill to see the Grand is NOT the same. You will regret that decision, believe me. The good news is no matter what...

The Grand Hotel was my pick of attractions when we visited Mackinac. And, it didn't disappoint. We decided to go there for lunch, which was an interesting experience. They do charge you $10 a person to walk around the grounds and the hotel. They do this to discourage too many visitors. I thought the $10 was worth it, since the...

Every room in hotel is a decorated masterpiece and not one us the same! Loved the view of Lake Superior from our patio off hotel and the Mackinac Bridge off in the distance.

“All the rooms are gorgeous. Price buys view. A non-view room at Grand Hotel is still a better choice than a "view room" anywhere else.”
