Getting to the island is an adventure.. No cars and the charm and the fort and downtown is so fantastic-like no place I have ever been.. Biked the whole island, hiked..loved the shopping in town and horses and the darling homes and beach views.. The fort was fun and bought back great gifts and items for the home.. The grand... More

We were back at the Grand in the summer for a few days. As always, it was nice to be on the island and that much nicer because of where we stayed. Hotel is very comfortable and staff is very nice. It was a bit cloudy one of the days, so we could not use the pool, but that is... More

Been coming to the grand Hotel in Michigan since 1992. Always love staying at the grand Hotel back in the 90s. The hotel still is very beautiful is obviously the gym of the island. However I will say this as much is a charge for rooms they definitely need to think about doing a lot of upgrades. The rooms look... More

After arriving at the main dock, we opted to walk to the hotel. If you have bags that are easy to carry or roll, it is about a 10-15 minute walk to the hotel. There is a steep hill leading up to the hotel, so I would not recommend this if you have any mobility issues. The exterior of the... More

I think that everyone should stay at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island in Michigan at least once in their lifetime. It is like being on a cruise on land. The historic structure is gorgeous and the service is impeccable. While it may seem very costly to stay here, you must take into consideration that your room rate includes a... More

the grounds are beautiful, the hotel is beautiful and the Sunday brunch is great. The room was lacking in accomodations but I guess that is what you get in a structure that is 150 yrs old. it was an okay stay, I was just expecting something more.

I have gone to Mackinac Island for about 50 years, and my only experience with the Grand Hotel was when I was about 10 years old, and my family attended the lunch buffet. Even back then, it was a magical experience. This summer I won a contest and the prize was a one night stay at the Grand Hotel with... More

My husband and I had an amazing...really, that should be "enchanting"...30th Anniversary trip to The Grand Hotel for the 2014 "Somewhere In Time" weekend. The hotel and grounds are absolutely gorgeous. Such elegance! It was truly as if we had stepped back in time. Few clocks and NO TVs in the main areas added to the ambience. No motor vehicles...

Thank you for your review. It sounds like you had an amazing time. Our Somewhere In Time weekend is definitely a time where many long lasting friendships have been formed. Many of the people who join us for SIT do return for the Titanic weekend, in appreciation of the time period. We hope to see you both back for many... More

This was our first trip to Michigan therefore our first trip to Mackinac Island. We travelled 16 hours in a car to meet up with our friends who invited us. When checking-in, we requested to be close to them. We were told that it couldn't be done, my friend spoke to another clerk and was told to check the following... More
