Esther Williams Swimming Pool
Our 220-foot-long, serpentine-shaped heated pool is a popular gathering place. Take a refreshing dip, soak up some rays on the deck or relax on one of our lounge chairs overlooking the pool and the Straits of Mackinac. Guests are also welcome to enjoy our sauna and two whirlpools on the pool deck.
Poolside food and beverage service is available from the Pool Grill (seasonal) and complimentary snow cones are served daily (while supplies last). The Esther Williams Swimming Pool is named after the actress and competitive swimmer who starred in the 1947 movie This Time for Keeps, filmed at Grand Hotel.
