One-of-a-Kind Accommodations

Just like every guest is different, so are the rooms at Grand Hotel. Each of our accommodations has been individually decorated, features a specific theme brought to life with colorful décor and furnishings, and is categorized by size, location, and view — be it views of the interior, The Jewel Golf Course, or the Straits of Mackinac.
