Grand Hotel Week Proclaimed by Governer for July 8 - 14

Sunday, July 8, to Saturday July 14, will be “Grand Hotel Week” in Michigan, declared as such by Governor Rick Snyder in recognition of Grand Hotel’s 125 years in business.

The declaration notes Grand Hotel as one of America’s premier vacation destinations.

The hotel was designated a state historical building in 1957 and a national historic landmark in 1989. It hosts more than 130,000 overnight guests each season, and has hosted five U.S. presidents.

Grand Hotel President R. Daniel Musser III said he and the staff are thrilled about the governor’s declaration.

“It’s a real honor, and it’s nice that the governor would do that. We really appreciate it.”

On July 10, a 125-foot-long birthday cake will be served to guests on the hotel’s 660-foot-long front porch. The anniversary celebration will be Friday, July 13, through Sunday, July 15, and includes receptions, concerts, fireworks, and a Governors’ Gala, where former governors William Milliken, James Blanchard, and John Engler will join the guests. John Pizzarelli will entertain Saturday evening.
