Several years ago, the Poughkeepsie Grand was likely a solid 4 star hotel, but age and lack of upkeep will eventually downgrade it to 3 star accommodations. The rooms need to be updated and the exterior needs a little bit of renovation. But, as a wedding venue, it is simply great (5 stars). This place knows how to throw a... More

Do not book your wedding at this place. I had attended a wedding at the Poughkeepsie Grand over a yr ago and had a nice time. I thought it would be a good place to have our wedding. We made it simple and booked it. We gave our deposit and signed the contracts and began planning the rest of our... More

I stayed at the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel for a wedding; I was one of the attendants. The wedding experience was fabulous. Our coordinator (Michelle, I think), was nice, friendly and extremely patient with the large wedding party, which included four children. The wedding took place in the Regency Ballroom and then we retreated to the Starlight/Dutchess rooms for the cocktail... More

Hotel was nice but don't go out at night. Stayed one night and then drove away fast. Checked into another hotel in Fishkill.

We stayed at this hotel for a family wedding. The lobby is pretty and people are freindly and helpful. The rooms are a little out dated but clean and that's very important to me.

A really nice hotel in downtown Poughkeepsie. Right across from Marist College and down the block from the Culinary Institute. Front desk was very helpful, and the place looks impeccable upon walking in. We happened to get this room last minute and it was the same weekend of graduation at Marist College so we were quite lucky to get this... More

Stayed at the Grand for a conference that was being held at a nearby venue. My business associates and I had a wonderful meal in the hotel restaurant. The only complaint I can think of is the mattress was too firm for my liking. The hotel was clean, quiet and everyone we came in contact with was professional

Rooms smell like old smoke and i'm in a non smoking room. Front desk lady was anything but welcoming and coughing all over my paperwork. Found hairs in the shower. Only here for convenience of wedding. I was hoping it would be nicer but sadly disappointed. Bed is gross and sandpapery. Neighborhood totally sketchy.

OK, so let's clarify: I travel all the time for work, and I've been in some of the worst hotels and some of the best - so all in all, this hotel isn't TERRIBLE, but by no means is it 5 diamond worthy. Let's get started: 1) The service wasn't all that great. A few of the staff members were... More

One year ago, my (now) husband and I, chose the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel for our wedding reception. From the moment we booked with Rachel at the Grand Hotel we were astonished by the wonderful service and attentiveness we received. Rachel was amazing. She answered every inquiry of ours in a very timely manner and accommodated all of our requests. Her... More
