I went to Sri Lanka for an official trip and stayed there for 3 nights
pros:
1. Great rooms
2. Luxury at its best
3. Awesome location
4. Good decor
5. Courteous Staff
6. Multiple options for eating
Cons:
1. Horrible food probably because I was a veg
2. Too crowded at times

All in all a great place to stay if you are in a lively mood with lots of people around.

Though we were not in the premium wing (I am not sure how the premium wing is) it was a wonderful experience. Very nice restaurants and pub (Cheers PUB). Most interesting in room dining menu with detailed consideration for kids and diabetic. Food is not expensive considering the hotel. They need more space at breakfast place.

From the moment you enter the spacious lobby of the Cinnamon Grand you know you are in for a treat. Smiling staff greet you, willing hands remove luggage, the check in is done seamlessly, with a smile, cool towel and welcome drink.
We were shown our lovely room by a very proud and polite young man, with a delightful smile.
Breakfast is wonderful, and there is something for everyone. The variety of fresh fruit his amazing.
The evening buffet is really delicious, and features many different foods, I am quite sure even the most discerning of diners will be very happy with the choice.

The hotel grounds and pool are beautiful and so well maintained.

The Cinnamon Grand is luxurious, but it is the staff that make it perfect. Each and every staff member greeted us with a huge smile, nothing was too much trouble for them, it is not just a stay, it is an experience, and one I would recommend to everyone. It is wonderful Sri Lankan luxury and hospitality at its very best.

Room Tip: I think they would all be lovely

This hotel is certainly one of the better hotels in Colombo. I have stayed there on a numerous occasions and find it very enjoyable. The staff members are great and cannot do enough to please you. At reception a young lady named Tharangi was just so efficient and helpful. She made our stay very enjoyable by taking the time to provide us with what we required. She is an asset to this hotel.
The lagoon restaurant is very, very good and is a must do. This restaurant also has a Sunday seafood buffet that is well priced and has all the seafood specialities that Sri lanka is renowned for.
A hidden gem at this hotel is the pool above the Spa area in the Crescat building which can be used by hotel guests. This is a far better and cleaner pool that the actual hotel pool and has bar service. This is also less crowded.
In addition the Srescat shopping centre attached to this hotel is so convienient. This has a supermarket and a food hall at the lower level which is handy.

Room Tip: This hotel has recently been refurbished. The previous new wing is no longer the better wing. Ask fo...

Stayed here twice as part of an organised tour of Sri Lanka. Whilst we didn't go exploring far from the hotel, it seems quite well located being only a kilometre or so from the start of the old part of Colombo. There's a small beach about a few hundred metres away (turn right out of the hotel) and there's a selection of shops adjacent to the hotel. There's also a couple of cash machines just outside the hotel. The hotel itself is quite imposing with large airy reception area with a coffee bar and cake shop. The outdoor pool and associated bars are very pleasant and sheltered. There's a fitness room somewhere with some sort of swimming facility but we didn't use it. Of the 2 rooms we occupied, one with a glimpse of the sea was somewhat larger than the other which only had a view across the city. Both rooms were however fine with good facilities that all functioned OK and very comfortable beds (not always the case in Asia). There are at least 4 restaurants in the hotel. The one we used provided an extensive and appetising range of (mainly) asian food and we enjoyed our meals there. Staff throughout the hotel were pleasant and helpful. Overall, whilst it's quite an expensive hotel to stay at, I don't think you'd be disappointed if you decide to go there.

Room Tip: The sea can be glimpsed from some rooms and some are larger than others but can't be more specif...
