This was our second trip to the Grand Hotel. I'd say it's appropriately named. Friendly staff, nice continental breakfast, large comfortable room, lovely pool & hot tub. We were grateful for the guest laundry. Many eateries are nearby, including Bentley's downstairs. Nice decor in rooms and lobby. Attached to the convention center. Parking beneath the hotel is convenient.

This hotel is fantastic. Very clean. Staff was very nice and friendly. Every time we entered the lobby, all staff said Hello, how are you? Staff was very helpful with answering all questions we had and recommend restaurants. Breakfast was fantastic. Loved the pancake machine. All breakfast items were very good. One of the best hotels we have stayed in!!!

Dear Pamela, We certainly enjoyed having the opportunity to host your event, we have to reciprocate the sentiment, your group was wonderful to work with! Salem is a wonderful community and we relish the opportunities to "show off" and the fact that your group wanted to see and do everything helped us dig deep. Thank you and we do hope... More

I had the pleasure of attending a conference here. The conference experience could not have been better. I believe they opened their breakfast room early to accommodate our large group. The rooms were spacious and well appointed, clean and comfortable. The breakfast included many healthy choices such as fruit salad and oatmeal, much better than the chain hotels. The conference...

This hotel is located near the downtown area/convention center. The entrance is on a very busy one way street. The lobby decor was grand, with high ceiling, plush carpet/couches. The clerks were dressed professionally. Our room was quiet, with a comfy couch & desk/office chair for computer. The bathroom was good size with regular amenities. We had a restful sleep.... More

This is the 2nd time I have stayed at the Grand Hotel in Salem and both experiences were excellent for different reasons. My first stay involved a great room, an excellent dinner and good service.

It started when I called a few days ahead to confirm our reservation- They had no record of the block of rooms that were reserved- They said they'd look into it and call back. Never called back. The person who had reserved the rooms called, and was told everything was remedied. When we arrived at the hotel, again, the front... More

Stayed at the Grand Hotel on business. The staff was friendly and attentive. The room was clean and comfortable, and the price was reasonably comparable to the larger less luxurious chains in the area. Breakfast was standard continental plus fair. I would stay again.

Property is nice, with parking garage below and pool/spa on 2nd floor. Pool isn't big enough for serious lap swimmers-but otherwise fine.

In downtown Portland, right next to the conference center, with free parking. Plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. Rooms are clean and large, the breakfast buffet is excellent, and the restaurant is good, too. The only down side is that the hotel is at a major intersection, so it can be noisy from traffic until late in the evening.

Dear BlueNovember, Thank you for the comments, many of our guests prefer an interior facing room. Please request that the staff assist you for future visits. We're glad that the other amenities that you've identified in your comments were appreciated and provided the value that is so important when choosing a hotel. Thanks again, Scott Snyder General Manager More
