About Grand Hotel

Charming rooms provide guests with Wi-Fi, TVs, minibars, minifridges, in-room safes and coffeemakers. Upgraded options are available.

All room packages include full breakfast; some provide lunch and dinner. Enjoy fancy dining in the Main Dining Room or stay casual at The Gate House, The Jockey Club or Cawthorne's Village Inn. A tea house/shop is also on-site.

Positive Reviews

Unique atmosphere.

Mackinac Island is known for its uniqueness-motorized vehicles are not allowed on the island. The Grand Hotel is also unique, as it was built in the late 1800s and its atmosphere invites guests to take a step back into the past. Guests have enjoyed the old-world charm and the hotel's beautiful grounds and interiors.

Wonderful porch.

The hotel's porch is said to be the longest in the world and guests enjoy kicking back in the rocking chairs with a drink and taking in all the fantastic sights and sounds of the area.

Wide array of activities.

You will be able to enjoy all that Mackinac Island has to offer as the hotel provides easy access to hotspots in the area. There's also plenty to do at the hotel, and guests have enjoyed perks such as bicycle rental, on-site restaurants and shops, and taking advantage of the pool area.

Negative Reviews

A pretty penny, extra fees.

This hotel is famous for a number of reasons, and you can expect to pay a high price for accommodations. Several guests have said that given the prices, they expected more for their money. There are also a lot of additional fees, including for the carriage ride and luggage check.

Upkeep needed.

Though guests acknowledge the fact that the hotel is going for a vintage, timeless look, several people have mentioned that certain things, such as chipped furniture, should be fixed or replaced.

Dining room may be a bit chaotic at times.

Depending on the time of year, the dining room(s) may be a bit chaotic. One guest described the dining room scene as akin to what one would expect in a college cafeteria, with loud noise and waiters moving frantically about.
