You can't miss going to see this beautiful place! It is a must see when you are on the island. We even had a wedding on the porch last June. You must set on the porch in a rocker and have a drink and enjoy the beautiful view!

What a treat to stay and such a beautiful hotel. I was invited by a fiend to attend the Proven Winners Grand Garden Tour. I will have to make this an annual event. The entire hotel staff made me feel as if I was their only guest. I can't wait to go back.

The Grand is our home away from home. We stay there every year over the 4th of July. So far we've been there 12 times! It is a breathtaking property from the moment you see it as your ferry boat approaches. The ambience, the location, the history, the food...all beyond compare. I have only one complaint, and it's a biggie,...

This was my first trip/ visit /stay and given the grandness and high reputation of the hotel, I was assuming it was going to be a bit pretentious and uppity. But I was so pleasantly surprised to see that ALL the employees were friendly, courteous, gracious, attentive, helpful and so down to earth. They are ALL truly an asset to...

My family was treated to three nights at the Grand Hotel by a cousin who lives in Michigan and wanted our daughters to have one of that state's great experiences. The photos don't lie about how beautiful the place is. Walking through the interior is like time travelling to the Gilded Age - the carpeting, the walls, the chandeliers, everything...

I had been to Mackinac Island before but never had the chance to stay at The Grand. Wow! 5 star! I came with friends to attend The Grand Garden Show and what a treat. Every dinner was 5 courses - if you could eat all of that. After the 1st night, I toned it down to 3 courses. The lamb...

My wife and I are fans of old-style American grand hotels, resorts and city clubs, so our recent 10-day stay at Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island is our vision of a perfect time. This was our 14th stay here since the 80’s and we always stay between 1 and 2 weeks. So, our daughter and we really know the place....

Step back in time when you visit the Grand Hotel. It is very elegant with great service. Children are welcome, but need to be on their best behavior in the dining room and parlor. The big drawback is some or the rooms are quite small and have no views. Our room was #204 or 214 and had a partial view...

This was the kind of experience you want to share with those who appreciate a quieter time, a time of refinement, class, and culture. The service was wonderful, the atmosphere inspiring, and the trip back in time a respite. Mackinaw Island is an experience that everyone should have the chance to have and measure today's rather hecktic pace against.

The Grand is a lovely hotel, best viewed from a distance. Upon closer inspection it is nothing more than a tourist trap. It costs $10 per person to enter the hotel which, if it were anything special, would be fine. Unfortunately, it is a hotel with spectacularly bad interior design and over-priced restaurants. The views are nice and the staff...

“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.”
