“Great Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2012

My sisters and I decided on the Lilac Tree Hotel because it was located downtown and offered a two bedroom suite for the six of us. Our room had an island view which faced the cottages behind us. The suite had two queen beds in one room and another queen bed in the living room. The beds were wonderfully comfortable. The two rooms were divided by the bathroom area which featured a two person jacuzzi tub/shower. Everything was spotless. There were two TV's, microwave, fridge and wetbar. The decor has busy floral motifs, typical of the island hotels. In the evening the housekeepers brought us cookies and milk one night and put chocolates on our pillows the next. We used the hot tub provided by the sister hotel, The Chippewa, about a block down the street. The hotel is in the center of town. Those who wanted to shop needed only take the elevator to the street. The night spots, Horn's Bar and The Pink Pony are just a block or two down main street. Both had live entertainment. The Stu Stuart comedy show and the Lilac Tree Spa are located downstairs of the hotel. The spa was wonderful, but suggest you make an advanced appointment. We ate dinner at The Woods Resteraunt, a wonderful treat. Not cheap, but the Bavarian lodge decor, delicious meal, and classy Jamaican waiters made it our favorite! Look forward to returning.

We were in a balcony spa room with a beautiful view of the harbor and of the street below. Room was spotless, the staff was friendly and professional. The decor is slightly outdated, but everything in the room was clean and worked perfectly. We were right across from the elevator and concerned about the noise potential, but it was not a problem. Would definitely recommend this property and would definitely stay there again.

I am a group leader for our Church and decided on the Lilac Tree for our trip to Mackinac Island. The hotel is centrally located in the middle of Main Street. Every one of the 39 suites are decorated differently. There were spotlessly clean and well taken care of. They are all beautiful and everyone was happy. The staff at the Lilac Tree was friendly and did everything possible to help you. I would definitely encourage anyone to stay at the Lilac Tree.

Room Tip: I had room 308 with a large balcony and it was great. Look for the balconies.

The suites are pretty nice - queen beds, pull out couch. The rooms are in back so noise from street not a problem. The decor is a bit outdated - bad wallpaper border and gold tone bath fixtures. The bed was most comfortable bed I've slept on in awhile.

We stayed in a Balcony spa room. What a great view! We had a view of the harbor and looked down on main street. The balcony was perfect in the morning to watch the sun come up and to listen to the town come to life. The room was pricey but what isn't on the island! We will be back!

Lilac Tree is located in the center of town and is a very convenient location to downtown activities. I took the "Mackinac Haundted Walk" history ghost tour and it actually started in the lobby of our hotel. The room was spacious and very clean. Would stay there again and recommend to friends.

We stayed in the Balcony King spa room. It was very roomy and the view overlooked Main Street and a little of the harbor. The bed was very comfortable and faced the inside of the hotel away from the noise of the street. It was nice to have a separate living area away from the bathroom and bedroom.
