Although I wasn't a guest, I was still able to roam the grounds (with a ten dollars fee). It was beautiful, inside and out. The best was sitting on the rocking chair and gazing out into the sun and into the waters. You won't get a better view than that. Beautiful and majestic hotel with loads of history and historic...

I took the bait and bought the lunch buffet for 2 at the Grand Hotel. We were not disappointed. Service was outstanding and the food was excellent. We loved the white fish, salads, beef, desserts, just everything. Well worth the money!

The hotel IS beautiful and well maintained. The grounds are beautiful and the food is also delicious. My husband and I brought our parents for their 70th birthdays and reserved and paid for three rooms for two nights. They had a lot of fun until the last morning. My dad left his watch on the desk in his room next... More

Wow - go here. You won't be disappointed and if you're not awestruck I'll give you your money back!!! (Not really). Seriously though - this hotel is so majestic and so "Grand" you'll thank me later by saying "Dang, that Johnny D knew what he was talking about when he said to come here!" Take a tux for you men...

Although the grand Hotel is not an easy trip from New Jersey, it was worth the two planes and the ferry and the walk up the hill. I saw the movie somewhere in time many years ago, and wanted to visit. It was fun getting dressed up each night, have a wonderful service, and great food. We ate dinners and... More

We visit Mackinac Island frequently for business. This business trip had a more family-friendly agenda. We stayed at the Grand Hotel in a rather large interior room (Room 397). The room had no view and was at the end of the hallway - meaning lengthy walks. The time in the room is so limited, it didn't really matter there wasn't... More

We have stayed at the Grand for the past 10 years. It is truly a wonderful experience. Accommodations are beautiful, service is wonderful. Cocktails on the porch with the magnificent view of the Straits of Mackinac is magical. We hope to return again next year. Packages include breakfast and dinner.

This place is huge, and old fashioned. It feels like being on an old cruise liner. You can literally wander around this place just discovering this that and the other thing, while catching yourself staring off at random cool things. If you go, have dinner in their dinning room at least once, and look for their evening music and dancing... More

The Grand Hotel has been in existence for over 125 years. It is a seasonal resort hotel, closing for the winter months, as does most of Mackinac Island. It is a great place to stay to celebrate very special occasions, like birthdays that end in zero and anniversaries that end in zero or five. Most people would not stay here... More

Visited The Grand again this year on the Michigan Golf Association package. Stayed for 3 nights and golfed 3 days. The courses are beautiful, and although not too long, will challenge you with the narrow fairways. The Grand is, as always, beautiful and unlike anyplace else. It's not a cheap date, but everyone should splurge once in awhile and experience... More
