Nothing like staying at the Grand! The staff and service is always great and the history is wonderful. Islanders are very welcoming and want to share their history. So be kind and slow down ...have drink and sit back and enjoy the beautiful view.

Just a fantastic experience, like taking a trip back in time! Excellent food, service and accommodations. Even the weather cooperated, was the end of October sunny and warm for that time of year and location.

Hubby and I stayed here for the first time ever for an overnight on the island here - we come to the island about once a year and always stayed on the mainland. We were celebrating our anniversary which coincided with the opening weekend special here. It was delightful to walk throughout the Grand and peek into the different rooms...

When my wife and I visited the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, Michigan, for the first time, in the early 1980s, the decor of the rooms dated to the 1930s and they didn't have air conditioning or cable TV or minibars. Frankly, I didn't think air conditioning was necessary with the cool breezes coming off the Straits of Mackinac. On...

If you ever have the chance - stay at the Grand. It is a great experience. The old fashioned rooms with modern updates. This time we stayed in a room that over looked the lake and what a vista that was. We learned about the history from the Grand's historian and some of its "secrets"; you'll have to visit to...

Staying overnight at the hotel is wonderful, worth it, but pricey. Sometimes there are packages available. If you are visiting the Island for the day, you should visit the inside of the hotel, this requires a fee or that you are going to eat lunch or attend high tea. Be sure to go to the top of the hotel once...

Best vacation ever. Hotel room was very clean. The food was excellent. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. Would love to go back someday. The fudge is second to none and you must visit Sadies ice cream parlor.

My husband and I took a day trip to Mackinac Island and made a point to visit the Grand Hotel. As with most other people (particularly women) I've been wanting to see the Grand Hotel every since I saw Somewhere in Time. Pictures don't do it justice. It is a magnificent place. I was a little annoyed that we had...

The moment you step on to the world's longest wooden porch, you are stepping back in time. The atmosphere is relaxed, yet refined. The hotel's interiors are colorfully designed by Carlton Varney. We love that there is a dress code after 6:00 pm. There is live music throughout the day in various spots, and the gardens are magnificent. It is...
