An historic hotel on an island without cars. There are only bikes and horses. Step back in time to enjoy great service and ambiance. This hotel was the site of the movie, Somewhere in Time. Great views of the lake and great meals

This was our first time staying at The Grand Hotel, though we have visited once before and ate their lunch buffet (which was amazing then, btw). It is REALLY pricey to stay there, so I would recommend the off season. We visited in July and got lucky with an internet 48hr flash sale. Yes, all my friends were so green... More

My husband and I stayed one night at the Grand Hotel as part of a bus tour of Michigan. I'm sure that this one night stay inflated the price of the tour, but it was well worth the cost. The hotel is old, but it was been lovingly well kept. Each room in the hotel is decorated differently and all... More

It was nice to go inside this historical hotel. During our visit we were able to tour all the rooms and see each ones unique decor and theme. Meals were buffet style served in an elegant dinning room with an emfisis on every tradition such as no hats, pulling the chair out for the ladies, and clearing your table promptly... More

Wonderful spot to escape the heat in continental US. 'Pure Michigan' is so true on Mackinac. A historical review of the hotel was a perfect start to a four day stay which included the 8.2 mile bike ride around the island, spa treatments, a very comfortable room, and great food and service. Not to mention that porch! Fantastic. The village... More

We have traveled with our daughters across Europe and North America. We have considered the Grand Hotel many times in the last 25 years. This year was out first and if we had done it 25 years ago this might have been our 25th trip. Elegance, hospitality, history and beauty are infused with your visit to the Grand Hotel. My... More

My spospouse and I have visited Mackinac Island many times over the past several decades. Arch day this week at Grand Hotel was extraordinary. Exceptionally comfortable and scenic room location overlooking Mackinac Bridge; great food at both breakfast and the five course evening dinner; amazing congenial and welcoming staff. Will be back!

This was our first visit to The Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. We booked a package that included both a 5 course dinner and breakfast. I cannot think of a single negative thing to say about our stay. Everything was exceptional including a king sized bed decorated to match the bygone era. Every inch of this place is clean and...

In the end, the tea and food served were good, but the servers are not well trained at all. We had called ahead and then specified to the concierge and our waiter that I am gluten-free and vegetarian and my daughter is vegetarian; I was assured they could accommodate us. The first waiter tripped and spilled our tray so we... More

The grounds are stunning. The staff, the room, and the experience was amazing. Just walking through the hotel was fun. Renting bikes and exploring the Island was great.
