Downtown Mackinac Island

The 2024 Mackinac Policy Conference will take place from Tuesday, May 28, to Friday, May 31, at Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island.

Reservations opened on Tuesday, Dec. 5, 2023, and hundreds of attendees secured rooms at Mackinac Island hotels. As a result, all Island hotels have reached capacity.

Many hotels offer a waitlist for Conference attendees. Please see the Mackinac Island Tourism Bureau website for a list of hotels offering a waitlist. The Chamber encourages individuals without a room reservation to contact the hotels and register for multiple waitlists.

Please note: Some properties on the Island accommodate tax exemptions. If this applies to you, please verify your tax-exempt status with your hotel prior to arrival.

There are still rooms available in Mackinaw City. Please contact the hotels directly to make a reservation. To accommodate attendees staying in Mackinaw City, the Chamber will schedule additional complimentary night ferries departing the Island on Tuesday, May 28; Wednesday, May 29; and Thursday, May 30.
