About Grand Hotel
Truly grand, for more than a century. America’s Original Grand Hotel™
Since 1887 Grand Hotel beckons guests to a bygone era of old-world hospitality and charm. Experience the tradition of Afternoon Tea in the Parlor, dressing up for dinner, nightly dancing to the sounds of the Grand Hotel Orchestra, and sitting in a rocking chair on the world’s longest porch with views of the Straits of Mackinac.
Family-owned for three generations, this National Historic Landmark has always embraced its rich history, while keeping up with current times. That means today, guests enjoy modern amenities while the hotel’s original architecture and charm have been tastefully preserved. Contributing greatly to the hotel’s ambiance is the relaxed atmosphere of Mackinac Island, where cars are not allowed and the horse and carriage and bicycle are favored modes of transportation.
The Musser Family
Grand Hotel has been owned for three generations by the Musser family. President R.D. (Dan) Musser III runs the hotel alongside his sister Mimi Cunningham and mother Amelia Musser. Since 1933, the Musser family has made it their mission to give every guest a grand experience. For more information about Grand Hotel’s family history, click here.
