All group rates are non-commissionable and are based on the Modified American Plan or Full American Plan. Modified American Plan (MAP) rates include a full breakfast and five-course dinner daily. Full American Plan (FAP) rates include a full breakfast, Grand Luncheon Buffet, and five-course dinner daily.  For room reservations, deposit and cancellation policies, please contact our Director of Group Tours at (906) 847-3331 or please complete our online Request for Proposal form.

All of the above MAP (Modified American Plan), FAP (Full American Plan) and Tour Director Rates are non-commissionable, and are subject to a 19.5% added charge. The rate plus the added charge are subject to Michigan State Sales Tax (currently 6%) and 2% Mackinac Island assessment. Grand Hotel operates on a "no tipping" policy within Grand Hotel.

There is a one-time charge for round trip luggage transfer between the boat docks and Grand Hotel on day of arrival and return on day of departure. This luggage handling charge is currently $8.00 per person and is not a daily rate, therefore it is in addition to the rates listed above.
