This year was our 10th annual visit to Grand Hotel and staying in the Woodfill Suite which overlooks the east end of the hotel. The colors of summer (Carleton Varney is the decorator) fill every area of the hotel and lend to the joyful palette that means every single room (more than 380) is decorated differently. We love the resort... More

We had the pleasure of spending 5 days, 4 nights at the Grand Hotel. While at first glance it seems a bit pricey but when you consider that it includes a full breakfast and a 5 course dinner it seemed to us to be a bargain. An exquisite facility on equally exquisite property just full of charm. The service is... More

I have never posted something so horrible about a hotel, but then I've never had such a painful experience. This was not my first visit, but it is likely my last. The first night we were here, I woke in the morning with a series of mildly itchy, painful bites on my abdomen. I quietly told the staff, as not... More

I've wanted to stay at the Grand Hotel since I first saw the movie "Somewhere in Time". Well my wish came true last week. Not only was it breathtaking as you first see it up close, but you feel as if you've gone back in time. It's name describes it perfectly......GRAND. We had a lake view room which was beautiful!...

It was not a good first impression that after asking your carriage driver in town how much is the fare to the Grand for check-in, his ONLY response was "$5 per person, get in the back". His rude response was said without even looking at us. We did not expect that from a Grand Hotel employee. Our excitement for our... More

My 3rd visit for an overnight and truly just as amazing each time! It is a step back in time and an experience like no other. Decor is quite unusual and very interesting. Staff is absolutely wonderful in the dining area.

It was a beautiful place - glad that we were there. I thought the food was not good - but cooking for that many people leaves something to be desired. Breakfast was OK. It was a long way to go to experience Michigan. Not very good - I might add. But! I am a Californian.

We recently spent one night at the Grand Hotel on Mackinaw Island. It definitely was a step back in time and a pleasant one. Our room was above the main entrance and under the Cupola Bar. It had an awesome view of the Mackinaw City, St. Ignace, the Mackinaw Bridge and the Straits. A Martha Stewart of yesteryear must have... More

We have just returned home from another wonderful vacation at the Grand Hotel on Mackinaw Island. From beginning to end our interaction with the staff and management was exemplary. We even had an interesting conversation with the plumber who works at the hotel year around. Very nice chap. The music, food, decor, remarkable front porch and atmosphere could not be... More

This was my third visit to the Grand Hotel. It was exceptional again. I take advantage of specials and off-peak times. This is the only way I could afford this luxury. The staff is amazing, food is delicious, and the accommodations are beautiful. Whether you have a special day to celebrate or just a get-away, please take the time to... More
