We stayed at the Grand four nights on a land trip that included Amsterdam, Berlin, Moscow, and St. Petersburg. The Grand is grand. The common areas are outstanding. The staff is well-trained, courteous and responsive. Several excellent restaurants offfered with different cuisines, all very good; one excellent. Great hotel bar. Some of the furniture in the room was a little "tired", but the room was spacious. Bathroom was a bit out-dated with too little room for all my wife's cosmetics, but satisfactory. Breakfast was excellent, in the fanciest restaurant. i got sick near the end of the trip, and asked the maitre'd whether there was a kiosk with cold medicine. She sent a medical doctor to my room. Most staff speak English. On my birthday the hotel sent two bottles of champagne to our room. All in all, a classy place. We had dinner at L'Europe, the fanciest restaurant in the hotel on our last night, and the food was excellent with excellent service.
You pay for all of this, but this one is worth it. if i am ever lucky enuf to get back here, this will be where i choose to stay.
