Grand Hotel – Close the Grand for the Season – October 29 – 30, 2023

Available Sunday, October 29 – Depart Monday, October 30, 2023


Something different, something time-honored: You’re invited to join in the unique experience as we close Grand Hotel’s doors for the winter months.

This package includes a casual dinner buffet on Sunday evening and a continental breakfast Monday morning. Enjoy an informal atmosphere as we clean out our pantries and wine cellar. Bob Tagatz, Resident Historian, will host a presentation explaining the process we go through to close the hotel, as well as fun facts and interesting information from the 2023 season. Monday morning we continue the tradition of ringing the bell to signify the end of our season, bringing in the rockers, and honor exemplary service with our Grand Legend Celebration. Take home a piece of Grand Hotel with a geranium from the Front Porch.

We look forward to you joining our staff in this annual end-of-the-year event that has become a tradition for so many.
