Getting to the Grand Hotel
Grand Hotel is a 15- to 20-minute uphill walk from the boat docks. For your convenience, Grand Hotel operates horse-drawn carriages between the docks and Grand Hotel at $5.50 per person (cash only).
Luggage transfer is simple and convenient. Your bags will be tagged at the ferry dock and transferred to the Grand Hotel. When you check in, simply present your luggage tags at the front desk. Your bags will be delivered directly to your room.
Check in starts at 4:00 p.m. If you are arriving close to 6:00 p.m., you may want to bring your evening wear with you to the hotel as luggage transfer may take up to two hours to get to the hotel from the dock.
