The view out the window is changing along with the face of the hotel. Ice is melting in the Straits and spring is well on its way!  We are looking forward to the final unveiling of these beautiful new rooms, and hope that you are too.


Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan visits Grand Hotel Stables

At the end of Grand Hotel’s 2014 season Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan stopped by to do some filming for a video they recently shared. Last summer when BCBSM President and CEO, Daniel J. Loepp visited Mackinac Island he sat in an antique horse-drawn carriage driven by Dave Whiting and Mr. Whiting shared his story of the process he went through acquiring health insurance with the provider. Blue Cross Blue Shield is a great partner of ours who sponsors Old Fashioned July Fourth Celebration and Labor Day Jazz Weekend.

We also partner with BCBSM for our Live Healthy Live Grand program that influences healthy dining choices in our Main Dining Room and at all of our restaurants as well as healthy activities for guests to do at Grand Hotel and around Mackinac Island.BCBS logo

We were honored to have Grand Stables featured in this touching story.
