Incredible visit to this breathtaking place. I fell in love of this beautiful place watching the Movie somewhere in time. Definitely being in person was an extraordinary experience! The service of the hotel is very good. Little expensive but it is worth to invest in this time travel place.

Hotel registration was quick as luggage went straight from fairy boat to motel to room. Room was a balcony on third floor facing the Straits of Mackinaw. Décor and color blends and style of room was colorful and elegant. Formal dinner at night was exquisite. The motel is an "experience" one must attend.

Went there for lunch during my visit to Mackinac Island. This is certainly one of the nicest spots in the UP of Michigan. the inside of the hotel is beautifully decorated in an Art Deco style, the staff is very attentive and the food and service is awesome. My only regret is that i didn't stay there but chose to... More

My wife and I have been wanting to stay at the Grand Hotel for quite a while. Now that we've been there, we wonder why we waited so long to get there. For a special occasion or just to treat yourself, we heartily recommend a trip to Mackinac Island with a stay at the Grand Hotel. This exquisite property makes... More

If you go to Mackinac island you have to stay here. The hotel is huge and is very cool, it has the largest wrap around porch in the world. If you are from the east coast, it is very similar to the Greenbrier. The hotel is located on top of a hill, a carriage will take your bags up once... More

We stayed as a family August 2015 at the Grand. It is a beautiful old hotel. Our room, 446, was spectacular with amazing sun rise and sunset's! The porch for happy hour is a must. The actual meals at the grand were mediocre and too crowded for our taste. The pool is magnificent. The island is spectacular and a must... More

This is an historic ( 1887 ) hotel with an unforgettable view of Lake Huron & the Mackinac Bridge. It is located on an island in Lake Huron and is accessible by ferry from several locations on shore. The hotel is probably most famous to current generations for its starring role in the Christopher Reeves movie " Somewhere in Time".... More
