My husband, my 7 year old daughter and I stayed at the Grand Hotel in August. It was an amazing stay, from the carriage ride to the Grand, to the dancing after dinner was truly a Grand experience. The carriage ride was truly a amazing experience and made you feel like royalty. My daughter and my husband went swimming in... More

Northern Michigan's superb & historic Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island is one of America's foremost summer vacation experiences. The island is especially known for it's family friendly historic preservation wherein public transportation is by horse drawn carriages and bicycles. Miles of scenic bicycle and hiking trails provide guests with enjoyable physical fitness. The island also has a modern one runway... More

One business and one getaway stay at The Grand. The building and the setting are majestic and the staff is exceptional. I cannot rate it a 5 for several reasons. While the dining is not bad, it's not great in the main dining room. It is group food done as well as can be expected in this monstrous dining room.... More

Thank you for your review. We appreciate you letting us know of the misspelling of Mr. Reeve's name, and we are pleased you were able to experience the hotel in two separate trips. We understand a casual stay is going to be a different experience than a business stay, and we thank you for sharing both. More

We have visited the Grand many times and have never been disappointed. The rooms are beautiful, every one different, and the service is impeccable. If you don't know the history of the hotel you may not appreciate it as much as we do. Last week we stayed in the Lord Astor Suite, on the fourth floor, with a wonderful, expansive... More

We signed up for a package deal and expected an average room. However, we were assigned half of one of six suites that normally rents for $2500 per night. What a treat! There were two canopy beds in a huge room with many windows. We had a million dollar view! We shared a living room which also was large, many... More

We stayed here on our cross country trip, celebrating our retirement.. The hotel itself is stunning, the grounds, flowers, interior and exterior all exquisite. Our room was beautiful, in a quiet corner of the hotel and very comfortable. The flowery decor was a bit overdone, but it was still lovely. The place is huge and well named, for it is... More

It's our 10th year of staying at the Grand Hotel. It was amazing again. If you don't get the history of where you are, you may not appreciate it as much. The rooms are all done by famous designer Carlton Varney...it's not like any other hotel. It's unique, one-of-a-kind and perhaps not like what you would expect. It's the history... More

While I get that they are trying to keep with some sort of "Victorian decor" I question how Victorian the decor of my room was. Red Carpet, weird flowery wallpaper that is reminiscent of the late 50's or 60s (maybe even early 70s?) and the fixtures in the bathroom were definitely reminiscent of the 50s or 60s. Not Victorian, and... More

Absolutely loved our trip to The Grand Hotel with our daughters (3 and 5 yrs). We loved the elegance of dressing formally for dinner, enjoyed the golf and the food was excellent. It seemed like a very good value for the cost and we will go back in a few years. It exceeded our expectations on all counts.

My husband and I travelled to The Grand Hotel to celebrate my retirement! What a spectacular 4 days we had!! The hotel is beautiful from the time you drive up in your carriage seeing the long beautiful porch to entering the stately hallway to registration. Our room was beautifully decorated and so comfortable. The maid service was wonderful and met... More
