My husband and I decided to go to the Grand as a mini-vacation attached to a conference for my line of work. The Grand Hotel is AMAZING! Mackinac Island was AMAZING! It was nice to go back in time of friendly service. Every person there went out of their way to make sure the hotel was top notch. I love...

Had a great stay at the Grand Hotel. The Island is a magical place that takes you back in time, and staying at the Grant Hotel only enhancing the experience. Had a great room! Dinner and breakfast were fantastic.

I had never considered the Grand Hotel a destination until a friend told us it was a must visit. I still hesitated until I found out about a dance package that they offer in October. My wife and I ballroom dance. I looked at the package and was impressed by the value. We went and fell in love with the...

I had an interesting experience in the grand hotel a few months ago. I had visited once as a child, and it was magic. That was probably because I was a preadolescent girl, the preppy handbook had just been published, and I had just watched "Somewhere in Time," and had a huge crush on Christopher Reeves. However, when I came...

We just returned from a wonderful stay at the famous Grand Hotel. The accommodations were beautiful and quite comfortable. The service everywhere was first rate. The food was also very good. There were a lot of people around, but certainly understandable. I would recommend the package where you are free for lunch as there are many great places in town...

We helped close the Grand! Yes, for one last glorious night, we stayed at The Grand Hotel. For a discounted price, we enjoyed this wonderful experience. Before we boarded our ferry to the Island (Arnold Line) we got to watch while they led off 20 or so of the draft horses that were headed to their winter barns in the...

This is the second time I have stayed at the hotel. This time I stayed in the Williams suite - absolutely amazing! This is one of the most beautiful hotels that has an understated elegance.
