“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

Love Love Love this hotel! The rooms are great, especially if you have kids and don't want them to go stir crazy. The cookie and Milk time was the most surprising part, and a nice surprise. The Lillac and the Chippewa are the only hotels that we stay at from now on! And also have to thank Archie again! He was so helpful and such a nice person, even knew us by name we passed him walking around the island! We also used the Babysitting service offered by the hotel, and could not be more pleased with how wonderful she was!

We have stayed here a number if times and this was just like the rest. Relaxing, comfortable and clean. We love the spa that is at the hotel and my wife has a service or two when ever we visit. This is our second trip to MI already this year. The shops are always a way to kill some time and we always rent bikes by the island house for a couple hours. Make sure you go to the pink pony for dinner and drinks. They have done some renovations and it makes it a little easier to get around in it. The rooms over looking the main road is our favorite. You can people watch in the morning and at night as well. This hotel is central to all the is MI. Make sure you get some fudge across the street. We hope to come back a couple more time this summers. Great stay as usual. Thanks for an escape from it all!!

We have been staying at the Lilac for a few years multiple times throughout the season and enjoy it more each time. the Staff is professional and Bart- the Manager in charge is awesome paying at lot of attention to details. The rooms are very clean and its all the small things that make our stay even more special each time. One of the best values on the island. You will love this place. AND their beds and linens are like sleeping on a cloud.

Room Tip: Spend the few xtra dollars and get a balcony view room facing the water and main street!!!!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Lilac Tree. We have stayed on the island before in another hotel and we found this one much more comfortable and family friendly. We are a family of 5 and the room was perfect. The hotel was perfectly situated on Main Street and we found the beds to be comfortable and the service to be great. The staff is very attentive and welcoming. The elevators to get up to the rooms were easy to access and there was never a wait. It was so nice to be on Main Street and run upstairs to get whatever we needed from our room. It was nice of the hotel to offer complimentary coffee, water, and apples during the day. Evening turn down service was nice also as they offered cookies and milk to children and chocolate mints on the beds. The hotel is very clean and well kept. The only suggestion I have is for the maintenance department to check the electrical outlets as a few of them in our room did not work. Don't let that deter you though, because there is a docking station and free wifi.

We had an enjoyable stay on Mackinac Island! The staff at the Lilac Tree Suites & Spa were easy to work with and very accommodating when our plans at the last minute. The room had a view of the harbor where we could watch the boats come and go. From our balcony we watch the horse drawn carriages and carts, bikes, bikes, people, and more bikes moving throughout the main street. The Spa is a must for both men and women to remove all your tension so you can enjoy the vacation.

Everyone should definitely try to get way from the main street to take in the views from both sides of the island—sunrise at Arch Rock and sunsets along the boardwalk looking out toward the Mackinaw Bridge. Leave your kids at home and enjoy a romantic time with your husband/wife.

Room Tip: Ask for 4th floor at the end of the hall; balcony suite

Love this place, love the island. This hotel is centrally located overlooking Main Street. You can experience all the sights and sounds, listen to the horses and people, or you can close the balcony door and enjoy peace and quiet.

Room Tip: Balcony overlooking Main Street is a must.
