My mother and I visited the Grand Hotel (which we hadn't done since the '70's) and found this beautiful hotel needed some work. The hotel and grounds are gorgeous and the views from the porch are really beautiful. The rooms are nicely appointed, but showing their age (wallpaper peeling in spots, rugs look worn) and the walls are thin. You... More

The Grand Hotel was a perfect place to celebrate our 36th anniversary. Beautiful gardens, beautiful veranda with white wicker rocking chairs and 8 mile road around the island to bike or take a horse and carriage.Excellent meals.

Mackinaw Island is a charming island and the Grand Hotel is an historic hotel there. It is a very large hotel and very elegant. The rooms were satisfactory, the service was very good. The restaurant is enormous and it overwhelmed us. The second night we ate at The Jockey Club on the premisses. The food and ambiance were more to... More

We have been to the Grand Hotel several times and have NEVER been anything less than blown away. Mackinac Island is a very special and unique experience. But a stay at the Grand Hotel always puts it way over the top. Relaxed atmosphere. World-class service. Excellent dining. My favorite place.

I have stayed at the Grand before and have loved every unique thing about it. The views of the Mackinaw Bridge, Island, and Lake Huron are stunning. If you stay and have the evening dinner included, take the carrige ride to The Woods Restaruant, also owned and operated by the Grand Hotel. You won't be dissapointed. It is truely a... More

We attend the Fourth of July festivities at the Grand Hotel every year. There is always so much to do for the family during the 4th of July at the Grand - swimming, tennis, golf, carnival, fireworks, etc. The food was good as usual and the staff is always on top of their game. Rudy takes such good care of... More

We recently had our wedding in the tea garden at the Grand. Prior to booking our wedding there we had never stayed at the Grand. The idea was it was a historical place and we could always come back and celebrate where we were married. The whole experience was absolutely incredible! Our wedding was August 28, so two weeks ago... More
