Pure class, Gentlemen and Ladies dress for Dinner in their Finest. I was as though we were transported to 1912.

My husband and I were married at the Grand Hotel last June. We used to love the hotel and the island until we were overcharged by a substantial amount for our wedding. We reached out to the wedding coordinator and accounting department and were told accounting would get back to us but received zero response. I have left messages and have proof of all of my emails, but now that the hotel is done with our wedding and has a more money than they were owed, they are done with us. I am absolutely disgusted. Disclaimer: Do not get married there!

Our sons treated us to a two night stay for our 50th anniversary gift. It was such a wonderful experience We have been to Mackinac Island many many times and have always loved the Grand Hotel. It was basically a dream come true! We felt very special staying there and our room was spectacular to say the least! We were very spoiled indeed! Our sons also included breakfast during our stay which was an added treat. Sure hope to return someday again.

I can’t give 5 stars because I didn’t stay the night and didn’t see a room. We paid $$ to get inside. Had ice cream. Walked around. I got a coffee. Sat on the porch. I wish we had splurged and stayed there. Just to go to the pool. It looked fancy. And to relax. If we have to go back, I would spend the extra money to stay. Very pretty. High class.

Mackinac Island is truly unique, and there's no better way to experience it than staying at the Grand. The grounds are magnificent, the hotel is exquisitely maintained, and it's a pleasure just strolling through the entrance and lounges, browsing at the shops, and relaxing on the front porch. Each room has its own special character; ours was slightly larger and elegantly decorated with a lovely view of the lake. Dressing for dinner makes it feel like a special occasion, and breakfasts in the grand dining room were accompanied by interesting menus and attentive service. Our service for dinner the first night was terribly slow, but the following nights made up for it. Try to make time for high tea and at least one of the historic lectures or tours; their historian is entertaining and a wealth of knowledge, and the harpist (and other musicians), first class. Staying at the Grand won't be your least expensive option, but it will certainly be your most memorable.

We have been staying at the Grand Hotel every year since 2005 (except 2020), and every year we are treated to a beautiful, relaxing vacation. This year we stayed in a room on the first floor. It was so convenient. Getting to the porch, and dining room was quick and easy. Our room did not have a great view, but was roomy for my husband, teenage son and myself. Housekeeping did a great job! Our room was very clean. I do wish they would replace the soaps at a minimum every other day. The new soaps that are in the rooms are lovely. They smell great and are soft on the skin, however, they melt away and get mushy. We stayed 4 nights and our soap was never replenished and by the 4th day it was a pile of mush. The pool is beautiful and the service was good. It can be hard to find a chair during peak, afternoon swim times. Sadies is always a nice treat and the ice cream is so good! We had breakfast in the dining room. It was ok. In the past, guests were treated to a basket of baked goods and coffee as soon as they sat down. This time, coffee was slow and we had to ask for the pastries. Buffet was not always available. We had dinner in the dining room on prime rib night. The dinner was good. (We miss the crackers that used to be on the tables.). Service was good. We were able to get a table with a view of the porch/lake side which was very nice. I think the new on sight (at Hotel) tipping policy is confusing. When and where to tip. I like the previous policy of no tipping and having the extra included in the package prices. I wish there were more waiters/waitresses on the porch. They were working so hard but it took forever to get a drink because there was only one or two servers for the entire porch. We miss the little glass snack cups that would be sent out with the drinks. We always enjoyed a drink or two on the porch after a long day, with some snack mix before going to get ready for dinner. Would love to see this brought back. My son is older now but I will say, we miss the old fashioned game room. We would always stop in after dinner for a quick air hockey game. I bet a lot of parents miss the kids club. We loved it when our son was younger. He loved pizza and movie night and enjoyed it while we had a date night dinner. It was nice that there was a kids room. We had a great time but do miss some of the things the Grand Hotel always did to go above and beyond.
