It's a great hotel. Clean, most of it is newly renovated, excellent location (right downtown with an excellent lakefront view in most rooms+balconies), helpful and knowledgeable staff. Slightly on the pricey side, but then again, that's Mackinac Island for you, everything is more than it is on mainland. 4.90 for a Tall Chai Tea Latte at Starbucks. A definite recommendation!
