We stayed in the Lighthouse Suite. With 3 teenagers, this was the perfect situation with 2 bedrooms, a large sitting room, and countertop with sink, small refrigerator, and ice maker. Otherwise, we would most likely have had 3 rooms. So, for the money, this worked perfectly and probably cost about the same. When we asked for a roll away, as there were only 2 beds, we were accommodated immediately. In fact, when they came to set it up, we asked if there weren't 2 rollaways available and voila! It was hot and there is no a.c., but with ceiling fans and open windows, it was just fine and there is always a bit of a breeze (more in the evening).
The location is right by the downtown Star Ferry line. Our baggage was brought up to our floor. There is no elevator in the hotel and the suite we were in is up on top of this old victorian. The room decor is very much in keeping with the cottage-y feel of Mackinac. The artwork is from various island artists and evokes the island.
We had breakfast supplies, so we could have cereal, milk, coffee and tea in the room. We had teacups and saucers supplied, along with a pitcher of milk. We dined in the restaurant on several occasions and thought the offerings were all quite tasty. The gazpacho was delicious and tangy. The smoked whitefish was served with capers, lemon, egg, and toasted baguette. After reading other reviews, I'm glad that we chose to eat here as much as we did. The setting by the harbor, and outdoor seating options with the spectacular gardens made one feel as though they really had gone back in time and we felt so relaxed on our vacation.
We would stay here again in a heartbeat.
