The center includes six meeting rooms all under one roof, with guest rooms nearby. The Art Gallery serves as the entrance and is perfect for registration and vendors. Smaller meeting rooms surround the Theatre, Grand Hotel’s largest and most flexible space. The Theatre is designed to host large sessions, dinner banquets (seating up to 500), receptions and live performances. Brighton Pavilion and Headquarters of the Capitol Club are great rooms for board meetings, breakout sessions and exhibits. The Terrace Room creates a regal, intimate setting for meetings, cocktail receptions, and private breakfasts and lunches. It also is the location for nightly live music by the Grand Hotel Orchestra. The Gerald R. Ford Conference Room is ideal for smaller meetings, breakout sessions and speaker preparation. The similarly sized Straits of Mackinac is a convenient space for small meetings and breakout sessions.
