Approaching the Grand Hotel

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 16 January 2017 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

The Grand Hotel is a historic hotel and coastal resort on Mackinac Island, Michigan, a small island located at the eastern end of the Straits of Mackinac within Lake Huron between the state's Upper and Lower Peninsulas. Constructed in the late 19th century, the facility advertises itself as having the world's largest porch. The Grand Hotel is well known for a number of notable visitors, including five U.S. presidents, Russian presidents Vladimir Putin and Dmitry Medvedev, inventor Thomas Edison, and author Mark Twain.

If Vladimir Putin was already staying at this hotel, then I no longer want to stay in it.

But it's a beautiful building. It is a sober and elegant building at the same time.
