This is not our first stay at the Lilac Tree on Mackinac Island and it will not be our last. The rooms are all beautiful. We always stay on the 3rd or 4th floor close to center so we have a waters view and can also watch the fudgers walking below. The staff are all so friendly and helpful.

Stayed again at The Lilac Tree for two nights. Always a special hotel and special staff. Room with balcony on 3rd floor was clean, bright, well maintained. Staff is so accommodating and pleasant! Good location in town for shopping & restaurants.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony overlooking main street so you can "people & horse watch"...

Great view and nice room. Two main complaints: 1) Why put your nicest room next to the ice machine? (And this seems to be true on every floor, because we moved floors during our stay.) It was loud and annoying. Why do people need ice that late at night anyway? 2) Why put the bed closer to the hallway than the living area? We noticed that most (if not all) the rooms on the water side of the hotel had the living area in the back and the bed next to the door. Would make more sense to put the bed in the back because it's quieter back there. Maybe then we wouldn't have to listen to people at the ice machine.

Otherwise, we enjoyed the Lilac Tree. Housekeeping brought us oreos and milk every day. Whatever we needed (wine cork, extra pillows, a plate, etc.), the hotel staff brought up for us, no matter how odd the request. We also liked the location--you could walk everywhere.

Room Tip: When you call, ask how close your room will be to the ice machine. Stay far away from it, even if it...

The cleanliness and the staff at this hotel will keep you coming back. The view from a suite, of Main Street and the harbor will make you not want to leave. The hotel is located in the center of town, so it is perfect for exploring the island.

We chose the Lilac Tree based on availability and reviews. We stayed 3 nights in suite 406, the room was huge, very clean and the view from the fourth floor balcony of Main street and the sunrises over the harbor were even better. Our experience there was wonderful and the employees were great. It was my wifes first time on the island and she loved it and did'nt want to leave.

Room Tip: Spend the extra money and get a suite with a balcony on the top floors, they have a great view of Ma...

Chose the Lilac Tree based on reviews and availability. What a fantastic experience! Location was excellent, suite was where the WOW! came from and the staff was outstanding. We had room 204 and it was decorated beautifully, the balcony overlooked Main Street and the water. The whole place far exceeded our expectations. Clean, bright, comfortable. Would absolutely stay here again. Only minor downside was wifi access. Couldn't access in the room, but it was fine out in the hallway - which was a minor inconvenience but workable for what we needed. The staff was great and held our bags as we got to the island early so we could look around. Archie brought up our bags and was incredibly energetic and helpful with anything we may have needed. He even brought our bags over from Shepler's to our second hotel when we decided on a whim to stay another night on the island. Would have loved to stay at the Lilac Tree but they didn't have any availability that night. Would definitely stay there again. Great experience.

We stayed two nights at this hotel! The hotel was modern with that old world charm. Our suite was very big. The hotel was very clean. Our balcony overlooked Main Street. It was a great escape from our busy world.
