The Grand Hotel is more than grand - it is spectacular. Both the interior and the exterior are simply gorgeous - decorated lavishly, fit for royalty. You must walk to the end of the lobby and see the florist, especially when they're preparing for a wedding! This hotel could not be more beautiful.

A wonderful place to visit and stay. Have celebrated wedding anniversaries for parents a number of years now. Not a fancy, newer hotel, but a grand, elegant one with it's uneven stair cases. Got to love it!

I love Mackinac Island and the Grand Hotel is just the icing on the cake. So refreshing to hear the clicking of horses rather than honking horns. We stayed at the Grand Hotel 30 years ago with our young children and they've made significant upgrades to the rooms since then. Dining room is still the same with a touch of... More

the first time I went to Macinaw Island I had a great time with my young family. We stayed on the mainland and camped. I thought paying to go into the hotel and grounds was idiotic and dressing after 5PM in suit was a bit pretentious. Boy was I wrong Advance 30 or so years. For the last three years... More

This was our first stay at the Grand Hotel and grand it was! A relaxing, refreshing time to take in the beautiful scenery and learn the history of the island and it's makings. The accommodations and aura present the feeling of a walk in the past and if you are fortunate enough to experience the the presentation of the hotel... More

We just went for a long weekend to celebrate our 31st wedding anniversary. Our first experience was grabbing a cab (beautiful horse drawn carriage) from the docs. We arrived at the Grand Hotel in style. What a magnificent looking hotel. The staff was there to help us unload from the carriage and were very kind. It only took around 10... More

This is a gorgeous location for a wedding. The ceremony was on the world famous front porch with the sun shining off Mackinac Bridge in the background. The room where the reception was held was also spectacular. The umbrella crystal chandeliers and the beautiful flowers added to the ambience. The bar servers were A+ remembering your drinks after the first... More

The Grand in some respects for breakfast and dinner is like a big cruise ship with the help coming from the caribbean and the Phillipines. Everyone one was kind and professional but given the size of the dinner and breakfast seating area we felt like we were on a giant cruise ship vice a romatic get away. The food was... More

From the moment you get off the ferry to the moment you return to the ferry the Grand Hotel treats you in the grand old tradition of fine hotels. The property is amazing. Ms Hill and the staff love their jobs and it shows. Doormen, carriage drivers, restaurant staff, housekeeping and the concierge are all terrific. Voted one of the... More

Very impressive but what you have to pay for a small , very dated room is obscene. The dress code is outdated and the staff seems to have been trained to have their noise up in the air. I cannot recommend this for even half the price, especially if you have children. It should be a museum and not a... More
