hi everyone....just finished up a season working in Juneau, AK for Holland America Princess Alaska as a Driver Guide and now thinking of going to Michigan to work on Mackinac Island. Has anyone worked at the Island House or Hotel Iroquois before? What was your experience and which hotel do you recommend working at? They both look fantastic but not sure if one is better than the other. T hanks for your responses! And feel free to ask away about my experiences in Alaska.

Hello. This is Larry Razek. Never worked at the two. But I have worked at several other places on the island. It truly is a "Party" Haven for the addicted employee lol. Were you thinking now or next season? Better get your ap and resume turned in early though. Jobs go quick. I worked at Grand Hotel and Mission Point resort...... Hope this helps.....Larry
Thanks Larry! I'm thinking of next May-Oct. and I would be open to the Grand Hotel as well. I've heard great things about both the Grand Hotel and the Hotel Iriquois...which one would you recommend? I've talked with Ryan at the Island House and he's accepting apps in December. Thanks so much for your input.


I know your post is dated but was hoping if you could give me some feedback if you did end up working on Mackinac Island. I had a post about working up there as one of the horse carts as a host but never receive a response. Just wondering what  the general atmosphere was like, housing, expenses etc. Seems really strange to be responding to a post so old but never know.

Thanks, Mike
