Michigan Hotel Named A Best All-Inclusive Resort In America
You check in, head up to your room, and put the wallet away for your stay. There’s a heightened level of relaxation when you go on to an all-inclusive resort. Travel and Leisure published a report on the best all-inclusive destinations in America for 2023, and a Michigan resort made the list.
Often travelers think of island paradise locations when considering all-inclusive trips. While there certainly are amazing options in places like the Caribbean, there are now some under-the-radar escapes within the country. At these all-inclusives, all-you-can-eat and drink options are included in your vacation booking. No need for a passport! And driving to one of these resorts might be an attractive option, as opposed to the typical day-long travel and dealing with airports.
As Travel and Leisure points out, booking an all-inclusive resort is very helpful in properly budgeting what the trip will cost and what you can afford to add on. “While private sessions like spa treatments are rarely included, it’s easier to factor in extras because you know exactly how much you’re spending upfront,” they explain.
So, what is this Michigan resort that was named one of the best all-inclusive destinations in America?
Grand Hotel – Mackinac Island, Michigan
Accessible only by charter flight or boat, Mackinac Island remains a car-free place. The Grand Hotel describes itself as a “new kind of old-fashioned getaway.” This Michigan island experience offers a complete escape. You can swim in the pools, bike along Lake Huron, or partake in many activities, including a round of golf.
“Each room is unique, creating a custom experience for every guest who walks through the door,” Travel and Leisure explains. The Grand Hotel categorizes its stay types so that you can customize your trip to your preference. There are themed weekends like a Wellness Retreat in September or a Murder Mystery Weekend in October. Finally, there are 13 restaurants on the grounds. Each of them requires formal attire after 6 pm to adhere to the historical tradition on the island.
