My family and I had been to Grand Hotel many times when I was a child but I'd never seen it through adult eyes so for various personal reasons, I decided to take advantage of their August Special and spent two days there. The Special included breakfast, lunch and, I believe, a reduced rate @ $249/nite. Upon making the reservation,... More

My experience at the grand was magical. The staff is helpful, friendly and just a class act. The food was fantastic, the rooms clean and uniquely decorated. I will be returning. The Astor spa is a must. The pool was very welcoming and down right beautiful. The main dining room was"exquisite". The famous porch was breath taking. We had an... More

We arrived at the Grand Hotel on a late Sunday afternoon. Our room was magnificent and our luggage was already in the room having been transferred from the ferry. My husband and I met 14 of our close friends at dinner that night. Another friend had arranged for us to have two round tables for 8, which was ideal for... More

This was the second year I attended this event. Our hotel accommodations were outstanding; the service in the hotel and restaurant is truly remarkable, as is the gourmet dinner menu that changes nightly. The cost of the 3-day event was excellent and there is an "event" of some sort almost every weekend at the hotel with reduced pricing. Highly recommended... More

The Grand Hotel hosted the third Garden Show with Proven Winners, along with The Iroquois Hotel where we stayed. The Grand Hotel accommodated speakers such as P. Allen Smith of PBS fame, and the island's own Jack Barnwell, designer of the Signature Garden at The Iroquois who had the idea for the show and was instrumental in planning it. The... More

The Grand Hotel lives up to its name. A must for any traveler. I recommend no breakfast buffet, order your breakfast. Fantastic dinner. Check the website for specials. Take the carriage tour of the island. Stop into Horns saloon for chili cheese fries. And Fudge is a must on the island. Ruba's next to the gate house in great for... More

This was a blast....both the Grand Hotel and Mackinac Island. Since I own horses- got to love a place that has 600 horses and one (well hidden) SUV (and please understand- this was a complaint in another review- you will occasionally get the smell of horse manure) The Island is beautiful , with both a great history and wonderful natural...

I cannot speak to the hotels rooms, restaurants or other amenities as I did not stay there. But, I can say that the hotel has taken a page out of the airlines book of how to gouge the public. $10 to walk on the porch.........I paid but never again. In general, I don't think it compares in value to the... More

We did NOT stay at the Grand Hotel. We did visit. It's nice, but not worth the $$$ in my opinion. There are lots of places to stay on the island that are better, for less $s. Especially if you want to stay more than one night. Tip: if you want to visit the Grand, there are ways to enter... More
