My husband and I stayed on July 23rd 2016. If I could give more than 5 stars...I would! From the picture perfect weather to the porch, the hotel itself, the amazing staff, the food, the music, the sangria (that the bartender said he would make for me) the gardens, croquet, the pool, sadies ice-cream parlor...and I could go on and...

The Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, Michigan is amazing. The hotel, grounds, food, staff - are all first class. They managed to keep the absolute essence of a turn of the century luxury hotel. The dining experience was incredible - with top notch wait staff and fabulous food.

Majestic Jewel on Mackinac island filled with history and treasure. We stayed in room 206. Beautiful view with balcony. Tennis courts, lovely pool and grounds. Polite and courteous staff. Very quiet. So many great choices for food and beverages. Loved this hotel and we will be back!

If I may say that the Grand Hotel is an experience of a lifetime. We have stayed to a lot of different types of hotels, resorts, villas nationwide and this by far tops it all. The service, ambience, nostalgia of the hotel being it the world's largest summer resort and holds the longest porch (2 football fields to be exact).... More

This hotel is pricey but it's more of a resort than just a place to sleep. Every room is said to be unique. The food served here is second to none. The bars are nice and the lawn and garden is perfect. The pool is large and heated almost like bath water. The most impressive thing is the worlds largest... More

I have longed wanted to visit this hotel and it did not disappoint. Everything about this hotel is outstanding. The staff are attentive and made every meal time a pleasure. The meals were of a banquet nature, healthy but very tasty ! Especially the lunchtime pastries. Travelling by horse and carriage becomes second nature, though the streets are still very... More

The hotel is worth seeing but not really the best place to stay. The rooms are horribly decorated, but I think that's the point. The hotel has you wear a tie and jacket after 6 but the food, hotel and service does not live up to this requirement. The hotel is definitely designed for seniors and the place was full... More

When we visited Mackinac Island, the Grand was a highlight of the visit! We paid the required $10.00 (per person) Visitor Fee to get inside and look around at the beautiful hotel! After a while, we decided to have lunch (expensive lunch)! The dining room was very large and very beautiful. There were many service representatives from all over the... More

Beautiful. Family friendly. Peopled by a diverse work force with fantastic stories, lots to do, full of healthy activities, plenty of great restaurants & shops, loaded with history & art, spectacular views in every direction, small & easily navigable yet a million miles from the rest of this chaotic world. The Grand provides every perfect touch & detail to invite... More

Be advised that you will not get close to the hotel unless you pay a fee. This is a magnificent historic building but it and the garden grounds are fiercely guarded by young foreign staff who barely speak English. Skip the hotel and spend your money on a bicycle ride around the beautiful island.
