    If you are going to go all the way to the island, you have to do it right! This is a bucket list type place. Rooms are amazing. My family (me, 2 young girls (4 and 7) and my wife) booked a regular room and were upgraded to the Nancy Reagan room, which was amazing!!! The nicest decorated room I could ever imagine and it matched the former first lady perfectly. Palatial red fabric lined walls and so much more.

    Service was great. We were treated like royalty. My 4 year old was allowed to attend the kids dinner with her older sister even though the formal policy says 5 and up, which was great for my wife and me and allowed us a nice dinner and some time on the porch. Not a big fan of dressing up nice for dinner in the summer heat, but it was worth it. Pool was great and was the best way to beat the heat - lots of kids there and free snow cones. We rented bikes on the property and toured the entire island. That was just OK. Kids got a little bored after seeing enough coastline.

    All that said, we did two full days (one night) and then went to Traverse City. We covered everything we wanted in that time frame. I would guess that anything longer than 2 nights could be too long. That is mostly due to the humidity and heat when we were there. The hotel has AC but anything else on the island involves walking, bike-riding, or a horse and buggy.

  • Did not stay overnight, visited grounds during the day

    I am reviewing the Grand not as an overnight guest with a room. We stayed elsewhere on the island, but knew we had to visit the Grand to see all her elegance and beauty for ourselves. First of all, I love that the first thing we see while coming to the island on the ferry is the Grand Hotel. She sits on the cliffs and overlooks the Huron and welcomes guests to this magical island.

    Secondly, I understand that some people complain about the $10 fee for non Grand Hotel guests to come onto the property, and I have no issue with paying it. It is well worth it. The people who greet us at the door as we walk in our very friendly and helpful and give us an overview of the hotel and the many spots that we as "day guests" can visit.

    Simply walking around the Grand Hotel is a great experience. The decor is very bright and bold, with many different patterns on the walls and floors and even the furniture.

    The best thing to do, of course, is check out that porch! It is marvelous. So open and airy, and I could stroll up and down it all day long. The views of the Huron and the Bridge are unmatched.

    Strolling through the "yard" of the Grand Hotel is great too, especially on a beautiful sunny day. It is a quieter down there, and you can meander through a small wooded area and take in all the greenery and just relax and enjoy the beauty.

    After you are done exploring the Grand, you absolutely must head up to the Cupola Bar for some refreshment and to take in spectacular views. You will not be disappointed. We spent a couple of hours up there talking with another couple and just having a great time.

    I hope to stay at the Grand someday, and I was very glad I paid the small fee to visit.

  • Fabulous Hotel Truly Grand

    The only way to describe this hotel is to say it is truly a step back into a glorious era.
    The interior is nothing short of elegant. Vibrant colors, impeccable decor and beautiful flowers adorn the hallways and dining areas.

  • Amazing Room Amazing views

    Family visit to the Grand Hotel.
    We have always wanted to stay here. We reserved under the tea for 2 program which provides for afternoon tea as well as golf on the Jewel.
    Both were spectacular! Our room 422 was even better. A suite with two queen beds, and views of the grounds and Mackinaw Bridge.
    The room is simply spectacular and we would recommend this room for a family of 4 in a heartbeat.
    The Jewel Golf course was in great condition. The holes are short but there are plenty of hazards to make up for that. The views from the front 9 are spectacular.
    The 5 course dinner was great and the menu changes very few days. Because gratuity is included service could use a little more attention to receive 5 star accolades. Order a bottle a wine and relax as every day in summer the dinning room will be busy. We were able to enjoy a nice dinner with window seats and the kids have a special dinner of their own. I would recommend this if your kids are under 10 unless they have impeccable table manners as the dinner is somewhat a formal affair.
    We were fortunate to have great weather and enjoyed the pool during out stay.
    Relax on the porch, buy yourself one of those expensive drinks and take in "Pure Michigan"

  • The perfect place to have your wedding on Mackinac Isalnd

    by Roxan D on 2017-11-20 12:50 am

    I work on Mackinac Island for the past 7 years and my husband and I decided to have our wedding at the Grand Hotel. That was the best decision we have ever made about our wedding. It started from making calls from Jamaica to the Grand Hotel. I talked to this amazing lady by the name of Marty Davis, which is the wedding coordinator. She's super helpful with just about everything with the wedding planning. Couldn't asked for anything better. She was willing to work with all our desires. Mimi from the flower shop was great, she was ready to work with anything we wanted for our special day, and she made it happen. A big thank you to Dwight the Supervisor to make sure everything went well. Our server Winston from Jamaica was awesome. Everything was just perfect. It was a fairy tale wedding. It was a grand wedding.
