In July 2014, we attended an ICLE conference. We stayed at the Grand overlooking the true blue, sparkling waters of Lake Huron off the tip of the Michigan's Mitten(lower peninsula, with a view of the Mackinac bridge in the near distance. It lights up at night!). The grand keeps improving with age. Our food was quite good, the service was... More

There is something special about staying at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, especially when the experience can be shared with 100 Red Hat Sisters. Everything is GRAND at the Grand! The food, the service and overall ambiance creates a unique vacation.

My wife and I spent 3 nights in the northern Michigan area, one of which was on Mackinac Island. My parents actually recommened the Grand Hotel even though we were only staying a night. Over the phone it was brought to my attention that dress attire was required for dinner at the Grand and that a suit coat with a... More

Our honeymoon stay was awesome! Everything was taken care of for us by the staff at the grand and the 5 course dinners were amazing. We also had breakfasts delivered to our room, which was a nice addition. If we ever needed anything, we just had to talk to the concierge and they would take care of it for us.... More

We stayed 2 nights on a tour of Pure Michigan. Service, comfort & ambiance was unquestionably GRAND. Surpassed Asheville's Biltmore. Every service (food, front desk, housekeeping, wait staff...) was excellent. We felt very much like "Somewhere in Time," or on the "Titanic" every moment. Senior travelers, families with infants to teens were all enjoying life around us.

We have been coming to the island for the last 8 years. The Grand is a step back in time, my 17 yr old loves the food and my boys both enjoy dressing for dinner. The pool is my favorite of anywhere I have ever been. For the most part the staff is awesome--only bad experience this year was the... More

My husband and I stayed here during jazz festival and our family has come up again on a seperate occasion and we had a great time. The music was fantastic, our room was awesome, the people that work there are very helpful and caring. We rode bikes around the inside and outside of the island, swam in the Esther Williams... More

1 hr later (after midnight) and the review is the same - the amount of noise echoing through this hotel from the kitchen area (clean-up time, apparently), the conference rooms (an all-night birthday party for some lucky man), and the hallways (no insulation in the walls), makes it impossible to sleep. If you like flowered wallpaper, green indoor-outdoor carpet, creaky... More

I have stayed in many amazing resorts and hotels - in Asheville NC, Bar Harbor ME, Toronto, Chicago, New York City - and this is definitely one of my favorites. When we (my family and I) arrived on Mackinack Island, the weather was pretty bad; heavy rain and very cold for mid-July, but once we got to the Grand Hotel,... More

Grand Hotel is extraordinary. The property is unique and beautiful and fun, but what puts it over the top is the people who work here. Cast your eyes in any direction at any time and you will see someone performing a job at the highest level. Crack of dawn, some really competent horticulturist tending the flowers on the porch; morning... More
