This is our second stay at the Grand over the past decade. The views of the lake and the grounds are truly amazing. But, we saw a great deal of evidence that the maintenance is starting to slip. The meals in particular were a huge disappointment. The 5 course dinner was served in such a rapid succession that you couldn't... More

My husband and I received a gift certificate from his parents for the Grand Hotel in Mackinac Island. It was a considerable amount to be used so we booked two nights. It was raining the day we arrived, but we made the best of it. We chose to walk to the Hotel so we could get a sense of the... More

We enjoyed our experience at the Grand. We enjoyed the huge front porch. It was awesome to see the full moon and the Indian summer moon. We enjoyed the breakfast that was included. The wait staff in the main dining room was just fantastic. They were so eager to help, with a smile on their faces. The evening at the... More

We visited the Grand for an afternoon and had the lunch buffet. The hotel needs a makeover. There are too many different styles of furniture, carpet, wallpaper and decór. There is no real continuity and I was disappointed that it didn't reflect the turn of the century. The furnishings are worn and the exterior needs sanded and repainted badly. The... More

What can I say.... The hotel blew me away... Great location, great service, a charm that you will never experience any place in the USA(maybe Europe). This hotel should be on everyone's bucket list!!! A 10!!! Bring nice clothes as everyone is dressed nice after 6pm

We were greeted off the Sheplers ferry boat by a beautiful horse and carriage ride to the Grand for $5 per person. Our luggage was waiting for us at our room before we got there. The harpist prepared us for a relaxing 5 course dinner. My husband wore a jacket and tie and I wore dress slacks and a blouse,... More

Many of the comments about this place are right on. The Grand defines stuffy but it's all a part of the experience. The rooms were impeccably clean and very interesting. Some of the reviews characterize the rooms as small; we had 2 rooms. They were not at all small. The full beds were a little tight but overall the rooms... More

I gave The Grand 5-Stars not because it's so Grand, but because the total experience of the island, the atmosphere and the ambiance of The Grand combined to make our stay one incredible memory. Our room was 3rd floor. Was elevator slow? Absolutely, but who cared? The Grand is life at a slower pace. Was our room air-conditioned? No. With... More

My wife and I have been staying annually at Grand Hotel for over 18 years and let me start with one point. If cost is a significant factor in your decision making for lodging, don’t stay here. It is expensive and you will end up tainting the quality of the rooms, food and service with the cost. “Not good enough... More

This hotel was built in the late 1800's and displays the grandeur of the era. Staying at the Grand Hotel on Mackinaw Island, Michigan is truly a unique experience. From the time you drop your luggage at the ferry pier to the time you claim it again on your return journey to the mainland every detail is attended to. The... More
