Went for afternoon tea recently. The waitress was excellent and helpful in choosing a tea from a wonderful assortment. The scones and sandwiches were very good but the desserts were substandard as in nothing special or in house made. The were the typical variety of desert bars you buy at the grocery store......brownie, butter tart square, date square & carrot... More

We were there for a very special dinner and wine paring. The food and setting was amazing and the service second to none. Our room was lovely and we had a great sleep. Breakfast was perfect. Such a lovely place to bring family and friends. Never disappoints.

Stayed here recently for work. The hotel is well cared for but stuck in the 90's. It was probably fairly high end at that time but needs an update. I have no complaint with the cleanliness however and to me that is more important than being modern or up to date. I did overhear at the front desk one of... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and had so much fun and relaxation, we stayed a 4th night. The entire staff here here are sooo accommodating and are so happy to help with a smile. The rooms are spacious and clean, but it was the service that stood out for us. As we stayed after xmas and before new years,... More

The service was excellent, but the food was terrible. For the price ($50.00 per person) it was beyond bad. The applies and desserts were okay, but certainly not what you would expect for the price. The mains were substandard to say the least. The food was cold, there was no flavour.

Just finished the Christmas Buffet at The Grand. Do not sit in the lounge area. We were given our seat and basically left. I understand that is was a buffet but some direction and letting you know that it was ready would have been nice.You are not in the main track of the servers in the lounge. The lady at... More

A superb place to have any function. Staff was excellent and attentive. I will return again because of the great value and service. They also have the place nicely decorated for the seasonal occasion. I was happy with my room and thought that the hotel had a nice personality. Scott Rootstown, Ohio

This hotel is not on the strip but very close to the shopping. It has that old time charm yet relatively new and very modern. This is a hotel you would expect in a high end district yet nestled in the mall area. The rates are very reasonable for what you get and super clean. Again Wow and awesome for... More

Gorgeous property! Room I had was very spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The lobby is very welcoming and the staff were all genuinely pleased to assist with a smile. Good location with shopping mall and dining within walking distance. As I was on a business trip, I didn't have a chance to eat in the restaurant but did... More
