Hotel Iroquois

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Annes Aeon Lane on June 13, 2006

There are among 8 hotels, 9 Bed & Breakfasts, and 9 rentals and suites to choose from on Mackinac Island, Michigan. The choices are really endless and you will go crazy deciding where to stay. There is the Lilac Tree Hotel & Spa which features suites, private balconies, and banquet, and spa luxuries. It’s worth, whatever you will pay. Among other hotels there is the cinema-famous Grand Hotel featured in the movie Somewhere in Time.

The Grand Hotel has been named one of the top 100 hotels in the world, and rightfully so. This hotel will make you feel like putting on a corset and having tea on its 660-foot front porch. With 300 rooms, the hotel is unique and emanates elegance, class, and history. There are also Bed & Breakfasts. Among which included is the Metivier Inn. With its coziness and charming atmosphere, it offers 21 rooms and a private Jacuzzi, the $140 per night out of your pocketbook won’t be missed. Another great B&B is The Inn at Stonecliffe which has fine lines and classy European swank. It features a swimming pool and is modernly luxurious.

However, if you are staying for a week or less and you want to get a worthwhile deal for your money, I suggest checking in to one of Mackinac’s most charming little hotels, Hotel Iroquois. For about $160 a night, the hotel that has been awarded the 2006 Travel and Leisure 500" and Condé Nast Traveler Gold List designation, is a hard offer to pass up. It isn’t family priced (check out Murray Hotel for your cheapest hotel stay), but it’s a must-stay! It has a total of 46 rooms (including decadent suites), and breakfast, lunch and dinner are served daily in the Carriage House dining room or you can enjoy it out on the veranda. Its Victorian style architecture will remind you of walking into a late Bostonian era film. It is right on the waterfront and offers a commanding view, sun beach, TV, and gardens. Do yourself a pleasure (favor) and book your room now!

*Something of note: If you are only visiting the Island on a day trip or want cheap-cheap hotels, then you can stay in a standard hotel on the mainland in Mackinac City. Check out their great interactive website for more info:
