This is my second trip to Mackinac Island with a stay at the Grand Hotel. The first time I was alone, but this time was accompanied by three girlfriends. It was everything I remembered and more. We had an amazing time. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating, always smiling and greeting you. The weekend was more adult, the week...

Everything about Grand Hotel is wonderful on the surface. The feel of a grand old hotel that is the object of tourism continues. Once a guest, you feel like you have "stepped back in time" to more romantic eras. Victorian influences are strong. The Esther Williams swimming pool reminds you of the Hollywood spectacular. Staff is more than pleasant. The...

I cannot say enough about the beautiful setting, service and people staffing the Grand Hotel. I enjoyed everything! I have not got one thing they could improve on. I could be as busy as I wanted to be; at the pool, walking the Hotel or exploring the property. The food was totally delicious and the service personalized and helpful as...

It beings with a horse-drawn carriage ride from the ferry dock up the hill through the landscaped grounds to the porte cochere entrance where uniformed staff greet you. The experience is a prelude to time travel to a bygone era. In the afternoon a harpist plays in the lobby. Rocking chairs on the front porch provide stunning views of the...

We checked our luggage, took a boat to the island and made the trek uphill to the Grand. It's a nice walk. Having no cars on the island is such a nice treat from the everyday norm, so peaceful. Horses run the roads here. We hiked, biked, swam, and relaxed after a long day in our room. It makes for...

My husband and I honeymooned on Mackinac Island 40 years ago as poor newlyweds. He promised to take me back and stay at the Grand Hotel someday, and for our 4oth anniversary he did! We reserved an interior view room on a Pure Michigan package which included breakfast, dinner and golf. I requested a lake view room if possible. Our...

The Grand Hotel is an excellent hotel for a summer vacation. Wonderful family owner with great food and service. The breakfast is great with either off the menu or a buffet. Dinner in the dinning room is perfect with three different menu (rotated each night). Five course dinner is worth the trip. Men must wear coat and tie.

Loved every minute of it. We had an overnight anniversary trip and are both so glad we stayed here. The hotel and grounds are beautiful, relaxing, and well cared-for, and all staff members were exceptional and treated us wonderfully. Patrice at the front desk/check-in was particularly kind and welcoming.

I watched the movie Somewhere In Time over 30 years ago and never knew that one day I would be experiencing the same hotel that Christopher Reeves and Jane Seymour filmed at with my children.
