The Grand is a magical place with staff that go above and beyond. We visited for lunch to celebrate a friend’s birthday. I had called ahead and spoken with Alvin. When we got there, he immediately remembered us, found us a great table, made sure we had an amazing lunch and came out with a birthday treat balanced on his head while the staff sang “happy birthday”. It was the kind of delightful, charming experience that sets this place apart. Thank you to Alvin and colleagues at the Jockey club for a memorable birthday celebration!

I have been visiting Mackinac Island for over (20) years and I have not stayed at the Grand in a long, long time. We decided to stay for the weekend and it was amazing! It’s charm continues to last. It’s like stuck in time, in a good way. The porch and grounds are still so beautiful. The rooms have been updated enough to enjoy a comfortable stay. The pool renovation is off the charts! The addition of the pool side, a water slide and a an adult pool, and cabanas made for awesome days at the pool while enjoying spectacular views of the lake. You have to take into consideration “island time” of how long everything takes to get, Iike you have to wait longer than you would expect for luggage, dining room service, and other things. We didn’t mind. We loved the whole step back in time experience.

Our 4th time at The Grand. The first since Covid and new owners. This is a special place with an earned reputation for a blend of tradition, enjoyment, and feeling special. The new owners have upgraded the pool area and the grounds maintenance is better. The dinner service is woeful--waiting an hour to be seated is not to be tolerated and someone needs to be held accountable. Avoid the overpriced Afternoon Tea. Expensive stale food with mediocre service--not a good combination. Despite the critical comments The Grand Hotel is worth a visit and the memories are priceless. A beautiful place worth repeat visits.

We decided to take our three kids, ages 18, 15, and 10 to stay at the Grand Hotel before my daughter leaves for college. We stayed for two nights and it was just a wonderful vacation. The moment I stepped onto the resort, I felt as if I went back in time. I absolutely love the historic feel of the resort and the staff was more than accommodating for any requests that we may have had. The service was superb!

This family vacation was everything we could have hoped for and more. The physical building was as beautiful as ever and the service the best, bar none, and we travel extensively. This was the first visit for the children and they loved everything about it, even the fact they had to ‘dress’ for the evening activities. One of our favorite places to go to.

We took a few children to the Grand for a conference. My husband attended meetings while the children and I enjoyed the pool and views. The food was wonderful and the kitchen staff was able to accommodate our son’s food allergies. Would love to return for another stay.

Employees looked overworked, not as friendly. Dining service was extremely slow (likely from shortage of staff)- we arrived for breakfast but did not get our menu, coffee or water for 45 min while we just sat there. the place also needs a little more updating, especially in the dining hall (change out the wrapped lamp shades for chandeliers- it still will retain the charm). the pool is nice, but the price for the meals are pretty outrageous.

What a beautiful day on Mackinac Island visiting the Grand Hotel! The grounds, the staff, the hotel…everything was beautiful! We paid the $10.00 to tour the hotel & grounds and all of enjoyed our visit. It was great reminiscing in the room displaying “Somewhere In Time” and “This Time for Keeps” movie memorabilia. Beautiful views of the grounds from the Cupela Bar on the 5th floor! Just relaxing on one of the many rocking chairs made for a great day. Lunch across the street at the Jockey Club was very good. A perfect way to spend some time on Mackinac Island!

Jusft back from Mackinac and a two night stay at the Grand Hotel. This was my third stay in the past nine years and the hotel just keeps getting better. The hotel and grounds are beautifully manicured, the staff is attentive and pleasant, the restaurants offer some degree of variety and the newly refurbished pool is amazing. The hotel is expensive and my dinner reservations for the Woodlands was not honored which was very disappointing

My experience at the Grand for a conference was excellent, except that I didn't get to stay there. The block of rooms for the conference was inadequate. I tried 3 times to get a room but never received a call back. That was disappointing to say the least.
